Thanks for your comprehensive reply. I think we are pretty much using the same methodology except I have been attempting to hold on to some optimism for too long now. Time to cut my losses. Satrix World MSCI returning 22% and with the vast range of companies in the fund I think it will have to be a case of a global collapse of markets to make any significant impact. And if they do collapse SA will plummet anyway. Our long-term low risk money has been in bonds and cash for a few years which has done better than the market so we'll keep most there I think but for my personal high risk ventures I think it's time to call it quits on the SA economy especially as confidence in the country is deteriorating with the current ANC land issues. I foresee a dwindling economy and eventually some form of low-grade failed state as a long-term scenario. Best of luck!
