    Yes, it can be.

    I guess by the same logic, no one can claim to make money buying and selling artworks, fine wines, whisky, classic cars etc. None of those are investments.

    I find this thread a great way to unlearn how to make money. Follow the chart.

    It's only the exact bottom if you look within the month of February. I bought in a dip in the middle of a bull run. Hardly amazing - should have bought earlier and sold later, but that's hindsight for you! I then let you know the month I bought in. You then tried to show why my claim was impossible. You failed. You're now trying to say it's unlikely because I timed the market perfectly. I didn't You failed again.

    Yet he got all excited and giddy after a relatively (by his own self-proclaimed standards) small profit on Centrica.

    How do you cope, when you're consistently wrong about almost everything? It must be really tough.
