    Cash under your bed.

    Folks, just a reminder that it is not permitted for anyone to recommend any particular investment to anyone else.

    However, opinions on areas of investment opportunity in 2013 are welcome, as long as some reasoning is also provided.

    I was also going to say under your bed.

    BUT I cant recommend that strategy.

    DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH ON WHAT TYPE OF BEDS, I take no responsibility.

    I'm gonna go with gold under the bed. Will also recommend a latex mattress, best move I ever made.:xyxthumbs It's also a lot harder to move than a standard mattress, may deter potential thieves.

    a waterbed is even better. Apart from the obvious benefits in the "exercise" department, it really is an immovable object when it's full. Just be aware, you'll have to drain it to get at the loot under the mattress. But that should be done every now and then anyway.

    Waterbed? That's outrageous!

    Haven't you seen the latest price increases in water? :banghead:

    A nail bed is much more practical and a better deterrent.

    LMAO!
    If you can afford gold bars to stash under your mattress, surely the water bill can be offset as a business insurance premium. Just make sure your gf doesn't wear stiletto heels in bed. And keep your toenails clipped :cautious:

    Hey! A little less jocularity. Cannot you see that the OP was asking a serious question?

    For what it's worth.

    Initially you need to look at charts and be in cash.

    Stay in Cash until the (imminent) 2013 crash. ( Europe, Chinese Comrades, Commodities )

    Then wait for a deep bar finishing at the highs on huge volume on the XAO.

    Start buying at 3.49pm on this day, and continue until the market closes. Keep an eye on the bar, if it is falling to low, sell before close, and wait for the next bar ( day of bar as described above ).

    The Europeans are resilient and need to wait for the Greeks plus or minus the Italians and Spanish to go **** up. Then they will recover.

    The Chinese Comrades have a controlled economy and can cut wages or make money to keep the slave comrades working or spending.

    Commodities will then recover.

    So my advice is stay in cash. Log in to your broker at 3.30pm every day, and watch for the big, deep to low, bar closing high on huge volume on the XAO when the newspapers are predicting calamity.

    Then go to Australian Shares.

    In my opinion the Australian shale gas/oil industry will boom in 2013. With LNG export projects sucking up all the available gas for energy projects and China still growing (and growing in demand for oil), I can see the entire sector at higher prices than today.

    From this thread I can ascertain that gold matresses are the best way to go.

    try and beat everyone to the run for yield, especially when the alleged fiscal cliff doesnt happen, and before divvies start getting paid out

    Maybe not. I've heard that some disreputable manchester salespeople have been selling tungsten mattresses to unsuspecting customers.

    Most people here cant give you advice plus when you ask a question
    that has endless possibilities you get the sort of reply you get :)

    be more specific and if you starting out, education is a good first step and work out what is it you
    want to do? buy and hold for dividend? trading? derivatives? technical? fundamental etc....

    the market will always be here and will be here when you long gone so you got plenty of time...

    If everyone know what is the best place to put their money into for next year we all be millionaires.

    Nail hit squarely on head - as usual ROE :)

    At least an idea of goals (growth/income) or timeframe would have prompted a few more serious replies. Maybe... 'tis the Silly Season after all...

    To add
    I think reduction of debt is a good start.
    Inflation will return and when it does it
    Will bite hard.

    Learn how to profit in markets which are bearish or ranging.
    Gear yourself so hat when opportunity does become obvious
    You'll be able to take advantage of it.

    This s a rare time of pause---don't waste it!

    Tech, you have mentioned your thoughts of fast raising inflation a couple of times now, any chance you could elaborate as to why? After all thigns are slowing down, and we haven't embarked on any printing or stimulus for some time now. What makes you think inflation is going to be an issue in the next 4-5 years I think you said?

    If anything I would think that we are in for a small bout of deflation before anything like that will begin to occur.

    Just my opinion but the Yanks, Japanese and Europeans are printing money like crazy, all that money once the fear is over has to come rushing out pushing up inflation worldwide.

    Invest in businesses that have pricing power and can ride it out.:2twocents
