    This is getting ridiculous (energy prices)

    Long term reliance on coal would be a step backwards (we dont produce it anymore either), but to adjust a heating bill for next winter to a reasonable level its the simplest thing. Anyone in Scotland for example should be using the interest free loan offered to get solar, no real reason not...

    Before risking a life from dodgy wiring, just buying coal for a stove is way easier to do & anthracite glows blue on its flames kinda bling :p as its mostly carbon simple cheap energy; long term some nice solar panels. Really no need for any extremes unless to grow drugs under sunlamps then...

    3x leverage is not meant to be held overnight, it will be leaking value due to the cost of that borrowed money. Its more precise timing then anything normally held. Of course I dont mean absolutely, if TSLA goes straight down... I dont know UK outperformance is nice considering we been in...

    The war in Ukraine will effect commodity prices also Russia I guess was some of the market supply for various ingredients. They produce alot of food so that could be it, some of the grain silos were blown up to starve the population into surrendering etc. The country exports alot, the ports...

    Funds for FTSE is fine, you own the fund and the fund owns shares. nothing wrong with that, UK outperformance is quite possible as the companies are global and the index has a bias to commodities. GBP is weak Funds is the cheapest path, Halifax for example just started a base fee of £30 a...

    Tech is too hard to judge trading, I'd rather buy a fund or the sector. I sold some xmas, can buy some now imo ; I dont know the bottom but its not too expensive to buy at these levels even NVDA looks close to reasonable comparatively. I bought Intel and Cisco in the teens years ago and I...

    Says PE of 4 for COIN. Could be some things drop so much its just market dynamics. I dont know I want them in particular, I wish I'd shorted some crypto names when I realised the top BTC price had broken up and immediately sold off but thats retrospect XLK for tech is 42% just MSFT and...

    Wind home turbines?

    Because of inflation as mentioned, everyone will have used 75k elec over 25 years in the end because the price isnt going down in value very likely and nominal price will be higher due to long term currency weakness which is central bank policy pretty much everywhere. Quarter century things...

    I was wanting to buy tech at least average in, I dont think its bad or failing in its prospects. Anything the world wants increasingly In 2008 they later revised GDP to reflect that recession started the prior summer in 2007 and nobody realised at that time. Quirky stuff, heres a link for...

    The fund will buy into the lows if its accumulative not income, nothing wrong with FTSE in that respect. I decided to go with a Vanguard fund that selects higher div types If NFLX keeps on like that it would seem an overreaction. Clipping off Russian users from their figures forced a loss...
