Hmm, lucky i didn't “infer to heavily”. Goodness, what a faker that reversal was! XJO went below 5680 for a bit there. [...]

Given the time it takes for super funds to process after-tax contributions, Coppleson might just be on-the-money, Lachlan. You may recall my June 6th comment: “We made the June 30th gateway with daze2spare… .” The bounce didn't last long!~ [...]

Oh yeah, citing your article I see now… “It's the first solid leg up in some time for the ASX, which was heavily sold down beginning in May and had a less-than-auspicious start to June.” “Bell Potter senior trader Richard Coppleson attributed the market's robustness to the superannuation changes taking place on July 1, which will place caps on concessional contributions. ” Otherwise on a price technical score it looks like a significant reversal however the trend is choppy and sideways so I shouldn't infer too heavily.

I felt very confident we'd see a 5600 close on the xjo in short term terms and on a daily close basis. It hit 5630 or so intra-day before something went ballistic and kept the closes above 5660. And goodness, now we are at 5833! Oh well. All good. My gold specs are still sad though. They had a blistering run last year but about 80% of the gains were lost since. [...]

Fascinating stuff, Lachlan… . I've been using glass mat batteries in our motorcycles… and my SUV's Thumper apparently incorporates _six_ of them… but this new system may revolutionise storage. Meanwhile the recent surge in shares has been attributed to the new Super changes: http://www.watoday.com.au/business/markets/asx-surges-for-second-day-as-investors-beat-super-deadline-20170614-gwqwjh.html If so, that surge may be just a blip… but interesting, nonetheless… .

Well Biker at least we know you're giving your soil biology some fuel. Btw you might find this interesting.http://spectrum.ieee.org/energywise/energy/renewables/does-new-glass-battery-accelerate-the-end-of-oil There were a few comments there that were interesting too. [...]

Lachlan: “I ran that operation as a giant science experiment. It made very little money and yet it helped me so much for the long game… .” That must have been a lot of fun, Lachlan. At present, I'm ‘blending' a mix of coffee grounds, banana skins and eggshells each week… and adding the mix to our raised vege gardens. It's a pretty slack experiment, since I don't have a ‘control group', but it does appear to rejuvenate transplanted seedlings… . [...]

“testing and retesting our conclusions” Exactly. I have a colleague. Together we talk a lot by phone, often late in to the night. Our businesses are separate yet we have behaved for years in such a way that they function cohesively like a single company (not guilty of collusion btw). Even now we are moving closer to maximise efficiencies and our separate risks have been considered should something interrupt progress. Neither of us are so worried about why we are correct with our conclusions but rather how we might yet be found to be wrong…and if so, what it will cost [...]

Lachlan: “A mixture of devotion, passion and good luck…” Three vital ingredients for success… and I'm sure you'd agree that the harder one works, the luckier one becomes… . What concerns me, after having ‘lucked in' at the information end, is that, for many, the _cost_ of information is excessive. Several times in the last two years, we've picked-up vital info by accident. The result has been a “Whhhaaaat? Say that again!” response. To some extent, we can take a little credit for listening… then acting on that info by testing it… but what irks me is that critically important [...]

Yes Biker I might become a super man yet, I don't count anything out. We all have varying needs. Its not the place here to go into it however my business could use more property in diverse forms. I get the utility and later its something to cash in on one way or another. High risk pieces of paper haven't done me much good. Higher risk self employment has paid off for me. A mixture of devotion, passion and good luck. [...]

Actually that xjo reversal failed and the next short term technical target in my opinion is 5600. Just a short term punt I will make here. [...]

2017 and 2018 offer (the last) opportunities to maximise Super, Lachlan… $540K in after-tax contributions in '17… or $300K in '18. We made the June 30th gateway with daze2spare… . Super? Probably the best retirement strategy (even better than property) while you're working… if you can sal-pac. Not so hot once retired, but one of two preparation strategies we've employed for 40-or-so years. Bottom line? Feeling pretty relaxed… . Next stage? We're still unsure… but there's no rush. Got thru' the gate in time , so it's probably plain-sailin' from now on. Thinkin' ETFs… but timing [...]

I hope things went well for you Biker. My accountant mentioned super today which reminded me she's been mentioning it for years, on deaf ears. And yes I could tell you a lot about that dam and the things that went on there. Some people did very well from the chaos. I live west of there a couple hours now days. Greg you could say that the ASX200 and appears toppy…putting aside a reversal attempt of the last few days. But then the dj looks bullish. [...]

GA: “…solar roof times were introduced to Australia in 2010 by Sekisui House…” No doubt to power our solar watches, Greg! Astonishing. Not a new initiative by Tesla at all… . Wonder if there's a patent issue(?) The constellations are aligning, Lachlan. What we do in the next two days may well determine our financial independence for decades.* * Presuming those Old Irish Curses have ceased emitting radiation in my direction!~ 🙂 🙂 🙂 [...]

The ASX 200 appears to be stuck around 5800 at the moment and with little good news out there I don't see too many reasons to change my view that the next major move will be down towards 5500. P.S. The “solar roof” has been available in Japan for around 10 years and solar roof times were introduced to Australia in 2010 by Sekisui House 😉 [...]

My accountant is quite successful Biker. Living in a sort after place and working with retirees and the SMSF market. I like being around people like her who give off positive…hmm… vibes…trying to think of a better term. I must admit a lot of ignorance about super though. I just know that a fund (ioof) I pay into for an employee has been very good for him. I will be having another meeting with my accountant now and a broker. She has some good ideas to help me keep risk under control and to make sure I don't feed the tax [...]
