    From July 1 2010 to Chrisy Eve, my return was 9.4%. Which means.... I am in exactly the same place, as I was last December!

    I've got 2 duds, and some others that are doing ok to well. I'm not much into trading out of things yet, much prefer the longterm approach.

    "about 8 or 9% going by my spreadsheet"

    Sorry officer, I was going 80 or 90klm/hour on my speedo! :D

    That 1% can make a difference. I thought spreadsheets were accurate.

    I wonder if there are businesses that can make some profits from natural disasters?

    Fresh fruit and vegetables have been hit hard. They are going to rise 100%. :eek: I doubt the poor farmers will make anything.
