    Every year I work the percentage gain or loss for the year on the final day of trading.

    This year the ALL ORDS closed down 15%.

    We are down a whopping 40% since our highs in October 2007 some 4 years ago.:eek:

    Worst of all, the ALL ORDS hit 4111 back in Jan 2005, so for 7 years we have gone no where.

    Just out of curiosity does anyone want to take a punt on where the ALL ORDS will finish on the last day of trading in 2012?

    Happy New Year Everyone and good luck with your investments, cheers.:)

    What actually do you mean when you say bought the All Ords?

    It's an index unrepresented by future contracts or ETFs as far as I;m aware... you can't "buy" it.

    I wonder how much dividends ALLORDS has paid out since Jan 2005.

    Roughly about 5% gross P/A for the ASX 300 for capital invested. For the All Ords it would be close to that too.

    Just be patient and wait for a Wave 3.

    It could take years or it could be in April/May 2012.

    Patience is required.

    Wow, that sounds about right.

    My share portfolio, since I started investing 7/8 years ago reflects it. Started off with some good blue chips, WOW, BHP, CSL - all crap now, did lots of trading/investing/punting since then and the ASX has beaten me up.

    If we are talking about punting on 2012 - property has got to be the next hit - hey it's getting hit now. I can't see 2012 ASX being that flash - but hey, you never can tell.

    Happy New Year

    Re: ALL ORDS went no where for 7 YEARS!!

    What if the sea level has fallen permanently?

    What if the surf has gone out for good?

    What price patience, then?

    :cool:

    On a side note, at the end of 2012, a year when depressed Eurozone countries have to find refinancing for around 1 TRILLION EUROS worth of sovereign debt - yep, you read that correctly - I predict this thread will be changed to "ALL ORDS went no where for 8 YEARS!!"

    Crappy New Year?

    :D
