Haha - not interested in selling gold @sectornitad.

Very interested in the flow of money based on fundamentals though.

Bonds have been wildly overvalued over the last ten years - it's about time the relatively undervalued stocks got some action :)

Take the point on the digital cash sink though... kinda like the arcade where the money falls down the side of the 2p machine

Coronavirus: WTO warns of trade slump on a scale not seen since 1930s http://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-w ... s-11970724

I mean the conflict of this kind of economic imagery next to NFL billboards is horrendous.

In any ordinary situation I’d be hunkering down for the worst but this is Bidstack... the only stock I’ve built an emotional connection with.. ever. Will this be my Achilles heel after years of disciplined investment?

My biggest worry is not getting the capital structure sorted before the above projections become economic reality but even then I wonder if the stars have aligned in the midst of one of the biggest challenges modern human civilization has ever experienced 🙄

Just remembered that I placed half of my pensions in cash a year or so back 😍

I started moving my pension into bids at 4.8p. Still 30-35 years of work to go, so can take a higher risk approach :)

Tbf my pensions are fairly limited in choice - I try and treat the pension pot differently and far more sensibly! Bids is thankfully not an option and after the last 12 months I’m not inclined to make it one either!! 😁

But good work on your pension move @lukehold!

Thanks for posting Stevo!

JD seems pretty pleased about it:

It’s where we need our CEO to be a ‘thought leader’... also just realised that he has 24,000 followers on LinkedIn. Decent reach!
