one last thing...every single year from 2003 some talking head was saying it would all end next month..every single month...nobody knows the future... what I do know is the market must move to survive and as long as the market is geared as much as it is these days 40% a year will be considered a bad year.

Oh and me own portfolio going through the credit crunch in 3 years trading done a 43% return trading 34 ssf year 1, year 2 29 mix of cfd and ssf and year 3 13 cfd, time is all important in this game and 40% year on year is tough OKAY 2009 was an easy 40% but 2008 and 2010 not so easy so far 2010 has produced 20% and 2008 was a big loss with the crunch ( and me had no clue what I was doing was first year and what a time to start trading I can sure pick them 2008 I paid for University degree twice ) Think Simon needs to Give the servivors of the credit crunch a doctorate in trading we sure paid for the degree in fees and losses well some of us .One thing about trading you pay the fees whether you win or loose.

well, the problem is that its not a balanced portfolio in that sense... maybe trading its possible, but the question was for balanced portfolio, not?
