    Markets are up and down like a yo yo. Funds such as Hargreaves are tightly regulated, no need to worry the prices will always reflect the composition of the portfolio.

    The problem is that the shares are traded in the US so there will be a discrepancy between the closing price on your fund and what happened several hours later in the US. You need to compare with the previous trading day not the current one.

    You may wish to check your Smithson shares this morning. Nearly twelve quid a pop today. Very nice.

    I would like to expand out of the UK to get more global exposure, and am torn between EFT's or picking some individual companies. I do know I am heavily biased towards FTSE companies, however with some companies which trade globally rather than just in the UK.

    I am with HL so pay a maximum of £200 a year in fees if I hold only stocks and shares and holding EFT's they are not the most competitive.

    Any advice on income funds/stocks to reduce my UK exposure?

    I took a punt at Baillie Gifford Shin Nippon plc (BGS) Ordinary 2p Shares Share Price | BGS as most of my portfolio is linked to tech so was taking losses across the board. It's done pretty well so far but no but not historically great. I assume the growth is down to general global markets and not linked to tech again but I'll only find out when tech crashes again. Might protect me from UK mess but not sure yet.

    I hold these - Blue Whale Growth fund, Fundsmith, Lindsell Train Global Equity. Solid, high quality companies. Extremely impressive fund management. For mid cap exposure, I hold Smithson, it has been fantastic since launch. I have no small cap funds presently. Once Brexit is done and dusted, I'll be back into UK small caps again. But not now. (Apologies, I just realised these won't really work for you at HL due to their usury with platform fees).

    An awesome buy when it re-opens over a 5+ year term.

    Here is Motley Fool warning about the one of the main stocks in Woodford's portfolio that then subsequently crashed over the last few months and contributed to the suspension of the fund.

    Remember Carillion's collapse? Could this Neil Woodford-owned stock be next? | The Motley Fool UK

    I find Motley Fool make good calls and I don't invest in anything that hasn't got a clean bill of health from them.

    Kier Group does look under valued but I still wouldn't touch it at the moment or Woodford's fund.

    Woodford's investments are risky. Biotech is bad for a start, most of these companies have crashed and the good ones tend to be one hit wonders,
