ahand patsy-- you like my 50/50 b/e split. MY equity 48%-- 40 are S&P top 100 & Toronto SX top 25, with about 5% euro (that includes UK) and 4% Asian.
Oakdale so do you use market tracker funds or individual company stocks to make up your say 40% in the US market?

As an accountant I have many clients who use a FA. It's amazing how many people do not look at their statements, etc, but rely just on the adviser.s verbal. Read your statements and ask questions. If you don't understand ask someone who does. Many clients were not getting the correct info from their adviser once fees and charges were added into the formula.
A lot of investors all read Bernie Madoffs statements and it didn’t do them much good…Just a thought

Malcolm, RHS & TFI. I'm not sure if they're closed-end funds. I don't track the account to closely. As long as long the income keeps flowing and the principal isn't shrinking I'm happy.

Dow Jones lost 4% last week, other indexes followed FTSE down 3% too--minor correction? Trump based panic? Rising interest rates? If the declines persist next week could really turn nasty.
Remember Lord Rothschild's advice--The time to buy is when the blood is running in the gutters.

In the states at the moment. Consensus is that the drop is due to profit taking.

True?? Who knows but so much institutional money is on an auto trade system it could be since the dow was so high.

I've been feeling that this year feels very similar to 1987 which had a very strong start then a sharp sell off in June if I remember correctly then the " melt up"" followed by a large melt down in October. The market however ended the year back where it started. I would settle for a re-run of that but it could be worse.

It will be interesting to see how the mkt does on Monday< my guess, more pain to come. Some 'experts are looking for a 10% correction. Surprised that there has not been more pots on this issue--there must be a ton of expats living off their investment portfolio.
