The Stock Market Is a (Legal) Ponzi Scheme


Stop depending on the stock market and take control of your money with these investment alternatives.

It’s time to stop depending on the stock market and take control of your money.


The truth is that there is as much chance of losing money in the stocks as there is of making money.


To put it plainly, your retirement depends on everyone else putting money into the market. Many people learned this the hard way during The Great Recession in 2008 when the stock market plunged, and people pulled their money out of the market.


Some people went from preparing to retire, to continuing to work for years beyond the recession to attempt to make up the money they lost. It’s time to stop depending on the stock market and take control of your money.

They say not to put all your eggs in one basket. You should have a diversified investment portfolio which shall consist of stocks, FDs, properties ect hanging in the balance. Because even though any of these segments can fall any given day, non of them will fall all at the same time. Smile 

Thank you for your advice and constant timely reminders.

Yes absolutely right. But in this once in a decade opportunity with almost certainly the best leader we have had & in the mold of LKY Park Cheong Hee Kemal Attaturk etc one should revise the allocation theory. Just my dumb view.

It's very true that the present environment for the investors is much better than what it was but having said that, one can never rule out the risk involve in any aforementioned segments.What would be advised is to increase one's portfolio in stocks at times like these but never put all in it at the same time. Because we have seen again and again that some times people put all their life savings in one place and lose. ex Golden key, ETI, Sakvithi to name a few. People who put money in these expected nothing but the best for their investments but we all know what returns they got. Even the mighty New York stock exchange collapsed in a matter of hours in 1929 on what is called the black Tuesday wiping out thousands of investors. (People can google it)

Hence being safe is better than being sorry. while increasing the portfolio in stocks is advisable it's also prudent not to put all in!!!

Not being pessimistic but who can say that tomorrow will not be a day for another Tsunami, another Freaky Covid wave or tension between US & China Makes the whole world come to a standstill?? Very Happy Very Happy  

Just my 2 cents Smile

Hi all,

As per Frontier Research[reputed equity research firm in SL], The ASPI is likely to rise over 7000, within the next 6 months. The key reason for the view are as follows.


1. very low interest rates
2. cheap valuations
3. optimism settling in within the sentiment cycle 
4. positive signaling from the government on equities.


I also, feel the current context is mainly driven because of the lowest ever interest rate in the market and we can expect another rate cut of 50~100bps by CBSL in mid October. Additionally the low market PE of below 10 multiples cf. other emerging markets. Hence, its quite safe to hold on to stocks right now for substantial returns


Good Luck
