Cash vs the stock market: an inconvenient truth

Mish looks at certificates of deposit vs returns from stocks. Investors, take note.

The folly of buy-and-hold may also apply to houses.

I've said for a long time, what you treat as an investment will behave like one.

Like Mr. Macawber (?) in Great Expectations, I treat my home like a castle, but I don't have a moat (unlike some MP's).

I think those people who are positive on the stock markets should stay invested because though doubts remain the market will in the long run move upwards hereon.

For those who have doubts about the market then day trading is the best option to trade with each session.

Buy on dips and short on highs this is the best way for Day traders as money making opportunities are aplenty and €500 a week is something that is achievable.
