    I doubt Tusk meant it in a genuinely religious way.
    It's an odd turn of phrase though. Imagine if he said 'there's a special place reserved in hell for those Islamic terrorists who tortured and killed innocent people at Bataclan'.
    Impossible to imagine such a thing. His career would be over instantly.
    Yet, it is considered perfectly acceptable to say such a thing about people who exercised their democratic right to request their country leave a political union.

    So to reiterate, this is my interpretation of the Bear market. The NASDAQ is a good global barometer for equities across the west. So, yeah if this is bearish, don't expect to find many winners in the UK. Also it is probably worth avoiding being heavily invested in growth stocks (no matter how compelling the fundamentals) during bear markets. So we need to clear 8,000 points on the NASDAQ before we are anywhere close to being at the end of the bear market. Gold has been a beneficiary since the start of the bear market.

    I got a week old "big turbo" Escort Cosworth for less than half list price as the guy who'd ordered it was quoted £17k for insurance back in 1992.
    My insurance was £1200 as I had full no claims, a clean licence, a garage and another car for daily use.
    I didn't like the car and eventually traded it for an Integrale.

    I wonder if insurance companies will start upping the premiums on the highest risk cars to the point where it starts to impact sales.
    It was before my time but isn't that what happened to ford cosworths?

    I think most of the young would rather vote Corbyn as an effective way to crash the whole fucking ponzi sham.

    stockton reacted to billfunk in FANG stock - Entry/Re-entry timing   
    I have decided that I will be filling in my W-8 form and investing mainly in US stocks. The UK stock universe looks like a shit show to me with many of the stocks lacking the big Q. Big dividend yields on declining stock values is not my idea of fun. Also I have worked here for decades so am well aware of how unproductive UK companies can be.
    The US tech sector is getting hammered recently so I am interested to watch it with a view to getting in on the cheap (and hope that the aggressive growth continues in the future! Thought I would create this topic for FANG stock but also Microsoft, Nvidia, AMD, Alibaba, Micron etc. Simply put, QUALITY stock with aggressive growth prospects and a good potential entry for a noob investor.
    Any thoughts, charts, ideas, appreciated.

    Yeah I use a regular savings account and put any extra I have in to PB's.
    I like the idea of a lottery win and hope to build up to a large holding in here, its a bit of fun each month too.

    The stock markets aren't looking too good this month. 
    The elevated VIX suggest to delay purchases for a little while until it settles down. (Do your own research)
