Default TiBB Financial News

Thought I'd start this to give the forum the latest financial market news in these strange financial times for all us investors. Unemployment is up both sides of the Atlantic yet both UK and US stock are doing surprisingly well and almost at their highest since pre lockdown.

FTSE 100 - DOWN 6,169.74 -56.03 (-0.90%)

Bad day for all you UK investors. The Footsies like a yo-yo at the moment.

S&P 500 - UP 3,081.41 UP +28.17 (+0.92%) **Latest Price**

After a mini crash last week, the S&P has rallied. The USA stock market is bullet proof, even with that imbecile Trump in the Oval office. All we need now is for him to say something stupid like - he wants to slow down Coronavirus testing - for the markets to tumble again. It’ll happen either tomorrow or Thursday

Dow Jones Industrial Average - UP 25,669.88+74.08 (+0.29%) **Latest Price**

US Markets close at 9.00pm GMT so tune in for closing prices

Nikkei 225 UP 22,288.14+293.10 (+1.33%)

Far East is up too.

S&P 500 - UP 3,100.14 +46.90 (+1.54%)

Incredible rally by the S&P. It closed at 3,018.59 on 29th June. Up 82 points in a day.

DOW JONES IA - UP 25,812.88 +217.08 +0.85%

NASDAQ UP 10,058.77 +184.61 +1.87%

Those bullet proof USA Indices come through on the last day of the quarter..

USA Markets closed.

I'm sure many will be pleased.

But me, I've had a hard life..yet I've still got a tenner in my pocket and a smile on my face on pay day, and a nice wee pension to look forward to.


Nearly as much as I'm looking forward to your updates on the day my pension hits in 2040, or thereabouts.


Probably the day I get covid22, knowing my luck..

I've got a decent chunk of my pension invested so its why I've been watching this stuff like a hawk for about a year.

May as well take advantage of the current market uncertainty.

HE's like an untrained dog who keeps ****ting on the carpet but no one can get him to stop. All those stupid comments lead to market uncertainty yet Trump thinks a thriving market is his ticket to re-election. Ok then shut your damn mouth, Donnie.

They're really good. I was with them for a while but I wanted more control over the funds so ditched all the robo platforms. I'm with Vanguard. They're fees are the cheapest and their funds are used by Plum (definitely) and; (I think) Nutmeg use their funds too, but dont quote me on that .

You should take a look at them.
