Slack Investor remains IN for US, UK, and Australian index shares. Despite a bad month for the UK index where the previous month gains were wiped out, there are no alarm bells yet. All markets have had a reasonable financial year (to Jun 30, 2017) with 12-month returns for the US, UK and Australian Index of 15.2%, 13.0% and 9.6%, respectively. These returns, for simplicity of calculation, do not include dividends. ...

From PixabaySlack Investor has been banging on about the efficiency of online accounts as a place to park your savings (here and here) but my life is also cluttered with other banking relationships – but each of these accounts are first thoroughly researched. This sounds a bit Un-Slack but banks don’t want you to really think about your accounts, they want you to accept this banking relationship in a benign way ...

Image SourceEspecially when the thing you don’t see is your money! I know things are difficult out there … rents are high, things break, bills keep coming in, and everything seems to be going up – except for your wages. But, if you can have the discipline to save even a little bit of your money, your wealth fund will be able to establish some roots …  and this start is a huge and ...

From abc.net.auSlack Investor doesn’t often comment on the political scene but in Australia it is the yearly budget week and it always pays to keep an ear out for what our politicians are up to. The Australian treasurer Scott Morrison (or SCOMO to the politically aware dudes) presented his budget yesterday with the usual media fanfare. A good summary here … there was a lash at the banks with a ...

Slack Investor remains IN for US, UK, and Australian index shares. April 2017 has seen rises, in the US and Australian markets and a dip in the UK Index. So far, the Slack Investment Cycle returns for the US, UK and Australian markets are 141.0%, 7.6% and 12.0%, respectively. Bull markets are a funny thing – and there is no doubt that all markets that Slack Investor follows are in various stages of a ...

Based upon source  You have been busy (and definitely not Slack) and gone through the paperwork that combines your super funds into one fund that you will keep for your working life. You have probably found an Industry Super Fund provider with established performance and low fees … Sorted! Slack Investor is proud of you! However, a little more work is required. The default investment option for most funds is called “balanced” – that ...

Image based on sourceMost Australians, particularly young Australians, rarely show interest in their superannuation(retirement)fund. I can understand this when you are just starting your working life and your experience with super is just to see a slab of your pay earmarked for some obscure fund that you wont be able to access until you are almost fossilized at the age of 60. However, it is time to engage … our super fees are ...

Slack Investor remains IN for US, UK, and Australian index shares. The Slack Investor has been true to his ethos and not published any general interest posts for a month … this will happen from time to time … but I will commit to prompt monthly updates for those who follow the US, UK and Australian indexes and who may value the Slack input to their buy/sell decisions – these will ...
