I found this at Phil’s recently and in my normal "light Fingered" way I borrowed it as it seemed appropriate for the time, the way our stock market has been bouncing around like a cork in rough water.
For those of us who have our savings invested in the market this can be quite unsettling, (a bit like being on that same rough water in a small boat) I keep reminding myself that even when your share prices fall you don’t lose anything unless you sell at the reduced price, always providing that you don’t NEED to sell its very often best to wait out the rough weather.
This has been an up and down and down again few weeks, made harder to understand because our local economy is quite good, we are tied onto the rest of the worlds economy, in particular the United States with their Home Sales crisis, and the era of paper money take-overs, meanwhile the giant emerging market of China is poised in the wings.
We are seeing more of; 2, 4, 7, 12, 18 (and its now )
And a lot less of; 1, 5, 6, 10, (Oh well its perhaps its time for an early night)
