Be it in £ or as a percentage? I presume the good investors of TSR are feeling the pinch from this accursed lurgy.

Personally my stocks have taken one hell of a battering and are down about 35% over all - although i've stopped checking for my sanity :lol:

About the same % here... :getmecoat:

Confident that things will smooth out in 40-50 odd years time when I retire :rofl: I'll continue buying into some index funds each month as usual :dontknow:

Aye it would seem to be a buyers market now :lol: Although im hesitent to invest any more in the shares over here in New Zealand... i'm predicting they have a couple more cliffs to jump off before they go back up given the virus hasnt really hit here yet.

Exactly :laugh: Mate, the way I'm trying to think of it is that they've weathered crashes before, and they'll weather this one. I'm not stupid enough to panic and try to sell stuff, so it's just a case of sitting tight, not looking at the FT and waiting for the storm to blow over. As you've said, it is a bit of a buying opportunity, but deciding what to buy is difficult

Buying opportunity, as events only happen like this roughly 10 - 20 years if you look closely in history of stockmarket falls...

PMI data due out at the start of April and May will be especially brutal i suspect so i'd look for a lower bottom then, market will then try find green shoots regardless of whether there are any on the basis of suspected vaccines or country x not doing as badly before the proper bottom that will occur in late July/early August when it has all started to pass but we get the full quarterly data from both governments and firms.

From September onwards through 2021 i would expect sharp rebounds even if not to pre-Covid levels.

I've saved £5 a day on travel and probably another £5 a day on food.

It's actually been a lot cheaper for me, I usually go to the bar every week so that's cut a lot off and since my fiance is the only one having to put up with my face, I've saved a fortune on makeup too.

I also no longer have to travel back and forth to London every few weeks.

Yeah, I'm considering getting in around July time... also waiting to see if the gold/silver market becomes a bit less frothy before buying a stake in that.
