Goodbye FY2007/2008 and thanks for nothing. Let’s hope FY2008/2009 will be better and we can all plug some nasty little leaks in our portfolio’s. Being an optimist I believe at some point in the next 12 months we will see equities post some modest gains, although after a horrid June I must admit my cheerful disposition was tested. Thankfully I was able to find my Spinal Tap DVD and this put all my problems in perspective, I was after all only dealing with investment portfolio problems, not a poorly sized Stonehenge stage prop or disputes about an album cover.
