Now now... Chin up everyone. Forget the past - look forward - keep trying. Time, patience and intelligent work and one must make some sort of progress. You could lose money in the markets in the long term and it's even likely that you will. But with inflation you are guaranteed to lose money by leaving it in the bank. Leave aside that you could have spent it on that holiday long before inflation ever got to it... Do I sound like a unit trust salesman or what?
