I thought that those considering investing in shares should know about the new stock market terms being used in The City..

CEO --Chief Embezzlement Officer.

CFO-- Corporate Fraud Officer.

BULL MARKET -- A random market movement causing an investor to mistake

himself for a financial genius.

BEAR MARKET -- A 6 to 18 month period when the kids get no allowance,

the wife gets no jewelry, and the husband gets no sex.

VALUE INVESTING -- The art of buying low and selling lower.

P/E RATIO -- The percentage of investors wetting their pants as the

market keeps crashing.

BROKER -- What my broker has made me.

STANDARD & POOR -- Your life in a nutshell.

STOCK ANALYST -- Idiot who just downgraded your stock.

STOCK SPLIT -- When your ex-wife and her lawyer split your assets

equally between themselves.

FINANCIAL PLANNER -- A guy whose phone has been disconnected.

MARKET CORRECTION -- The day after you buy stocks.

CASH FLOW -- The movement your money makes as it disappears down the

toilet.

YAHOO -- What you yell after selling it to some poor sucker for $240 per

share.

WINDOWS -- What you jump out of when you're the sucker who bought Yahoo

@ $240 per share.

INSTITUTIONAL INVESTOR -- Past year investor who's now locked up in a

nuthouse.

PROFIT -- An archaic word no longer in use

Lots of potential in the stock market at the moment. There are quite a few good Company's (with cash in the bank) at low share prices.

Also, I hear what you're say about the mortgage idea, but I wouldn't dismiss it. Reduce it and you reduce you monthly payments. You'll be richer in the long run.

I made it my mission (while interest rates were low) to pay off my Mortgage. I paided it off and I don't have one now :innocent:.

You'll have to trust me on this... rumour has it that there are some good IFAs out there! :innocent:

The fact they get in at 04:45 following a big night out has absolutely no bearing on their current stress levels...

Oh, and unless you are prepared to take a long term view - 5 years plus - cash is king. Having said that I'm currently switching my cash positions back to equity, but I'm very stupid brave.

I don't think you are mate. I just bought some more BT shares. As an income generator I got nearly 6% dividends this year and they are waaaayyyyy undervalued at present.

Possibly save your life. Check out this website.
