Guys, For those still in the bear camp, the attached article might help paint the picture a bit more about why I think we're in for a sustained bull run on the global equities markets. http://www.smh.com.au/news/business...n-three-decades/2006/04/19/1145344154012.html Some key points: There's a few more gems in that article, but I'll let you read it in full yourself. It just really validates the position I've held for a while now that the commodities boom is not going to be short lived, and that it is brought about by rising demand lead primarily by Asia but with a strong US and recovering Europe. Platinum Asia returned over 7% last month, and I've just sent my PDS in to put $250K into that fund with dividends re-invested. Gotta love this environment! Michael.
