    Who cares what pension pots are worth? We will all die at our desks anyway.

    I feel almost prescient in that I cashed in a huge chunk of an ISA the week before last at the highest value it's been.

    But I did it because I need to use the money elsewhere, not because I had a ****ing clue what the markets were likely to do

    Feeling super smug selling my overpriced Edinburgh property last year. It is now clear to me that was the top of the market. There's an alarming increase of properties lingering on the market with no buyers.

    A pension is long term, if you are checking it every day you are doing it wrong.

    Come back in a year or two or five or ten and I bet you'll not even remember this or any other blip
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    2008 was a balance sheet (liquidity) crisis.

    2020 is an income statement (earnings) crisis.

    Bad balance sheets can be fixed with financial engineering but bad income statements require re-working of business models and supply chains.

    Now we are facing too much operating leverage in the real economy with over-optimised supply chains, data-driven pricing management and customer acquisition funnels.

    Stock market?

    It’s the stock levels of cans of beans one should be worried about, essential medicine.

    And 2% of world population dieing. Stock markets are a ponzi scheme relying on ever increasing humans.

    This corona virus problem will have burned itself out after max 2 years. Then things will return to normal. The ftse 100 was at 7500 two weeks ago. It's now down 8%. Given that its dividend yield is 4.5%, then the 8% drop prices in two years of zero dividends. I think this is probably about right.

    It’s going to be hard to maintain dividend yields if no trade happening and supply chains stop.

    Probably worth pointing out that some of us are a bit closer to the draw down than you young pups.
