I have $X,000, what should I buy?

Every day I get hundreds of calls from people all over the world saying "Jis, you are an investment guru with great hair, can you help me?"  and I always feel it is my duty to help those without my gifts or attention to personal grooming.

I threw together a quick flow chart to help those less fortunate than myself, there is no right answer I tell them, it is a personal choice, it is based on you and how you feel about the world around you, which is probably bleak and unwelcoming.

Anyway, the flowchart should open up ok, I had to convert it from an excel file to a pdf to a jpg so there is quite a bit of corruption in the text which is a shame, as it is a text based visual aid but anyway you can always [Ctrl]+[+] to make it bigger.  Just start at the top and pick the answer which best fits your situation, not everyone can be catered for.  If anyone knows how to link a pdf let me know and I will upload it, if anyone would like to have a play around with it let me know and you can have the excel.  Anyway as usual your comments are always appreciated, no really!

Re: I have $X,000, what should I buy?

Brilliant!!


Every day, give a gift to everyone you meet.

Not a formal, wrapped-up present - make it something personal, something that means something, something genuine. Your gift can be your smile, a word of thanks or encouragement, a gesture of politeness, even a friendly nod.

Comedy Gold!!!

This is going in my briefcase to hand to new stackers... Might have to edit all of them to conclude with 'sell it to the pikey in a pub at under spot'...

Very well done Jislizard! Although looks like you picked out some products and worked your way back up with the questions...

Re: I have $X,000, what should I buy?

thanks.  I got so many laughs out of that.  frighteningly accurate too.

this needs to be a sticky for new members and would be a great presentation at the monthly meet.

Re: I have $X,000, what should I buy?

Thanks for all your comments!

Just realised I missed a whole area of stacking and I don't want to leave Gold Pelican hanging as I am sure he needs some stacking advice so I guess it is back to the drawing board.  V2 will be on its way once I get back to work!  If there was an emoticon for hanging your head in shame I woud use it.


Now stacking: World Junk Silver Coins.
Swap your older, worn, dirty fractional silver coins for fiat, .999 rounds or legal tender.

Well done JS, thanks for the laugh!

(By the way, my analysis said "I have trust issues"... bloody oath I have trust issues - wouldn't trust a single government any further than I could spit over my left shoulder!)

I can't read it! When I enlarge it doesn't seem to help. Feel like I'm missing out on something here! I'll try again later - maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Yes, it does lose a little when you convert it from an excel spreadsheet into a pdf into a jpg.

Did you click on the thumbnail, that works for me but it isn't great!

Eventually I went backwards and just reduced the size of the screen view. 35% was optimum viewing but still quite patchy. Clicking on the thumbnail didn't do anything.

I clicked on the thumbnail and the chart is too large for my screen area.
I tried to print it, but, my computer wants to print the post and not the thumbnail enlarge chart.
