Manny:
I wonder if we have many stock market investors here?

I used to do some day trading a few years ago. I’ve recently opened up another trading account (in a tax free ISA wrapping you can put £20k pa in) so I can have a play again.

I’ve dropped a few quid in and bought some stuff. I’m no expert but much of it is just maths and common sense with a touch of feelz.

I reckon anyone can outperform circa 1.5% bank interest in a depressed Coronavirus market with his eyes closed. I’ll be disappointed if I can’t do 10% pa.

Anyone else doing this? Let’s talk stocks....

I have some cash invested in the market via an investment trading account. I’ve been playing the market over the past few years and have had some very healthy returns via dividend payouts and capital gains.
One year I had a 20% ROI.
However, at the moment I’m taking a beating and don’t see a return to the black for some time to come.  :GRRRR:

Guile:
I have a finance background and have been investing for a long time.  Made good money with US tech stocks.  Still getting my dividends and will ride out the market.

Have seen the big crashes but humans are greedy and things will always go back up.  If you are starting out I would buy into an index fund like the S&P 500, Dow Jones, Nasdaq.  Then a bond fund to balance.

Manny:
Anyone with existing holdings will have taken a hammering. They’ll mostly come back.

I had some BT which is on the floor, so I’ve just had a load more.

Look at airlines like Ryanair. They’ll be flying again soon, and before you know it, they will be transporting every council estate occupant back to the Costa del Chlamydia.
