As a Canuck, I do not relate to the S&P. My best investment lately has been a condo in PV MX priced in USD that is up 23% since I bought it in Dec 2007. Had to cash in some equities to cover the all cash offer. Whew!
Other than that, I need oil to rise to $80 to be ahead of my previous high. But I probably need none of the remaining equities to live to 95yo. The main hit has been our plans for a charitable trust to be administered by my kids. Hope that comes back because I was liking the idea.
For the fun of it...Keith
