Damn, my trolling skills are clearly slipping.
I don't think Crypto's are investments, a speculative asset just like any currency without even the back up of a government to raise taxes.

Well why didn't you say so before?!?

Yes, obviously they're speculative. Pretty much like gold. Speculative investments.

But rest assured, I truly don't care whether you buy cryptos, shares, bonds, or pork belly futures. I don't care whether you make millions, or live off the RAV (or the Maltese equivalent). There are those who have made a killing out of cryptocurrencies, and those who have lost their houses on the stock market. There are those who have done the opposite, and many positioned somewhere in between. Each to their own, selber schuld, and caveat emptor.

The Thread is 'Investment fund', you are going off on a tangent derailing the thread, but as a mod you know the rules better than the rest of us.

Re: Investment fund

There‘s a lot of talk about the 10 year bull market coming to an end. I‘d be inclined to leave the money in the deposit account. It‘s safe and you won‘t lose anything and the history of the Swiss franc may be your best investment...

If only anyone could predict what the market will do, many people took fright around Christmas & removed money from the market, that move will have cost those people 15% or more to date. For a long term investor it's best to ignore commentary. As shown below even the financial crash can be ignored. Finding the 1987 crash on a long term graph is not easy as it's such a tiny blip.

£10,000 in S&P 500 for 15 years 31 Dec 02 to 31 Dec 17 became £45,101 10.6% compound
Miss the best 10 days £21,311 5.2% compound
Miss the best 20 days £13,465 2% compound
Miss the best 30 days £9,150 -0.6% compound
Miss the best 40 days £6460 -2.9% compound

Re: Investment fund

@FMF : with described current does, do you think it's reasonable to buy back into SP500 or Nasdaq100?

Assuming you are a long term investor yes.
Warren Buffet would go further to say that most people should only buy the S&P 500. Fundsmith is significantly above last September highs, the index's not, However the stocks it holds are of a higher quality than companies in the index on average so that is exactly what I would expect to happen.

I am (at minimum) a 5yrs investor, and currently looking to spice things up with the following:

VUG [Vanguard Growth Shares]
plus
IVW - iSh SP 500 Grwt Shs @TER 0.20%

Thoughts?

They both seem to track VOO (S&P 500 tracker) very closely with a touch of out performance & slightly higher volatility. They are both quasi S&P trackers without a doubt.
