    I would think that the fire bombing of visiting teams coaches on the approach to the stadium would give the home team quite an advantage....

    The FTSE

    The best way to invest is, and always will be, to evaluate a company through it's balance sheet. It's an ageless strategy and it does give a potential investor a framework to work on. The principle works from any company large or small and right through to your typical corner shop. It works for...

    The FTSE

    If you are happy using funds rather than investing in individual companies through a broker or a trading platform such as HL or Interactive Investor then I recommend you use Trustnet.com to do your research. You can filter the site to your own preferences such as for growth, income...

    The FTSE

    A sensible investment if you are in the game for the long run. At least you won't need to avoid those window ledges if the markets tank.

    The FTSE

    One tactic I would suggest is to install an automated Stop Loss order with each investment you make. It's not compulsory to do so but it can be adjusted, up or down, to suit your temperament. Example: You buy a holding of shares for, say, 100 units per share but you are aware that the market...

    The FTSE

    Depends on how soon you need the money. In the LONG RUN, markets always go up. In the short term they can be all over the place as we've seen this last 12 months. The FTSE index first opened in 1984 at a level of 1000 and it has gone through all sorts of ups, downs euphoria and panics ever since!

    The FTSE

    I don't know your age or how long you wish to work or how long it will be before you need to take the money but history shows that long term investment is the best way to build up your wealth. Either a pension scheme or an ISA is ideal for this as both have tax advantages not available to other...

    You speak sense. I've just finished reading a book called 'The Little Book of Common Sense Investing' by Jack Bogle who was the man who set up Vanguard funds. You say your financial advisor charged you loads of money to do what you could have done for yourself if you had the understanding of the...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    I've 'liked' your post because it's what I've thought throughout this sorry mess but I think those who run these establishments are unable to do so as the staff required do not exist without a heavy investment in recruitment, something politicians never like to do as the ability of the NHS to...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    If you don't mind me asking, were these symptoms the only ones she suffered and did they worsen any or did they stay the same and how many days was she ill? I ask because some people [too many in my mind] would think these symptoms as 'minor' and unlike your mother who acted wisely, they would...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Assuming the new vaccine which is to be given in stages to the population of the UK [if there is enough to go around and if it is effective], then when can we ditch the face masks? Will it be a kept instruction until the last person is injected or will masks remain a legal requirement for those...

    The FTSE

    Best just stick to something we know about. Open an account with Betfair or Betdaq and bet on City NOT winning forthcoming games. I'm not talking about Lay bets as these require a bit of reverse thinking and it's quite possible to make mistakes, but the forthcoming game against Burnley is the...

    The FTSE

    It's a big subject but one with various ways of meeting your needs depending on your personality and your circumstances. As a total novice I would suggest you buy a book such as "Investing in Shares for Dummies" by David Stevenson and Paul Mladjenovic. Unlike most other Dummies books, this one...

    The FTSE

    Near enough. look at www.bigcharts.marketwatch.com and at the top on the upper left hand side just type in manu. Scroll down the time frame to 3 years ... and laugh.

    The FTSE

    Don't worry just yet. It isn't unusual for markets to get the jitters on the approach to an election unless there is a clear indication of a winner. There's no bigger market than the American one and next week's vote could go either way with the two candidates being so far opposed. Once it's out...

    London is more populated than Manchester, as you say, but the difference between the two cities is not as wide as GB vs Sweden. London is 15328, Manchester is 12210.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    There is a substantial difference in population PER SQUARE Mile, and according to google search engine, Sweden has a population of 57.5 people per square mile. Great Britain has a population of 1010 people per square mile, a substantial difference. From this I would deduce that Swedes have...

    Is left back really a problem?

    Nostalgia takes me back to Michael Frontzeck. He fitted your description perfectly.

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    Glad to hear of Sainsbury's customers to have the sense to carry out the regulations. Pity I couldn't say the same about Tesco customers at Cheetham Hill. I think some there are totally oblivious as to what is happening right now.
