  • The Single Greatest Mistake Investors Make [View article]
    Hi yes I was certainly referring to the accumulation phase.

    Here was a great article on a simple and timeless way to trade the s&p 500 ...

    http://seekingalpha.co...

    More than interesting to say the least.

    I would suggest managing risk by way of bonds (lower overall and manageable volatility) and rebalancing, enabling an investor to buy at the bottoms - via DCA.

    Thanks william, it appears the Saudi's are out to put a stop to the low hanging frackers and oil sands projects and deep sea. It also appears they have the will and ability to see it out.

    We are still into the first few batters in the first inning. there are so many companies that will unfortunately have season-ending injuries.

    Certainly tough times thought as there are real people and real families that will be affected.

    It does not feel good to redeem investments for folks who are recently laid off. Canada is being hit hard already. Likely the same in many parts of the U.S.

  • Learning From Children About Investing [View article]
    Hi bobcat, that's why benchmarking is important. If one can beat the index over time, great. If they can't they should know the cost and perhaps take action.

    Yes, this is just the beginning of the new paradigm.

    Where she stops, nobody knows.

    Hi, you have stated you are not a trader (that's probably a good thing :) -

    Again, predicting the price of oil would be more like gambling and laying a few chips on a table.

    Once again, simple diversification and dollar cost averaging may be a sensible approach.

    Hi jimbo, but the majors were correlating with oil prices, check out that chart in the article link.

    While there are a few ways to make money in the sector, all is largely predicated on that single price.

  • Grexit: It Is Not The Debt, It Is The Future [View article]
    Spain is working? That's not why my friend who is Spanish is saying. The unionists and socialists are destroying the country. Same situation for many countries in Europe, perhaps France being the greatest threat.

    Perhaps we have to have some form of massive failure (OK we already have it) to teach citizens a lesson.

    Perhaps when we support them, we fail them?

  • Futures sink following Greek elections [View news story]
    In Greece we see the future of the many other left wing nations of Europe and around the world. Public service unions find willing politicians to confiscate wealth from private sector and deliver to public sector (workers). It is no longer socialism but unionism under the specious banner of socialism. It does not end well as we are witnessing.

    Unfortunately we are all on the same train. I hope those in the middle cars learn from watching those at the front of the train.

    Thanks Pok, yes I have read lots of predictions on the sub $40 range, and they have made some rational arguments.

    It would depend if the companies and can product enough oil at sub $40 and still make a profit. The current trend line appears to be above $40?

  • A Crude Oil Bottom: Where To Look For Clues [View article]
    Yes the question would be who called this in 2011 or 2012. Would there even be one candidate? The supply and demand fundamentals and trends were there for everyone to see. No one, or very few, but two and two together.

    That says a lot about investing based on guesses and predictions.

    Perhaps that's why passive wins on the stock selection and emotional front(s).

  • Greeks head to the polls [View news story]
    Yes the slow death of modified "socialism", which is now distorted to 'unionism'. Public service unions picked up the banner of socialism to get the money, while the money then goes to the public service unions and members. Not hard for them to find politicians to pick up their cause.

    Voters have voted to have their money transferred from their pockets to those of the public servants.

    Hey it's not as if they were not asked. :)

    We see this across the world. It's just that some societies are more advanced along the path to unionism, is all ...

  • A Crude Oil Bottom: Where To Look For Clues [View article]
    Thanks PDE, always more than interesting to hear form those who work in the industry. Anything could happen.

    Based on supply and demand (if oil can be priced on those basic pricing parameters) where do you think oil will settle (price range) in the next 2-5 years? Assuming no economic tragedies and some modest economic growth of course.

    Thanks, Dale
