  1. A follow-on from the recently closed (Dec 2016) topic on "Brexit: UK referendum on leaving the EU. How it affects British expats"... Let's see where this snow ball eventually ends up.
  2. Brexit: The fallout

      ...and here we go again!
  3. Brexit: The fallout

    It's now 1 minute after midnight...BoJo and his clan are going on trade republic right now and are buying funds galore directed by that CU*T Rees-Mogg. Of course there'll be "a deal" will be some sort of agreement, probably falling far short of any reasonable criteria - in order to save the UKs face... but it will make despicable CU*Ts rich! Just like after the referendum...remember our discussion then?  
  4. Coronavirus the brits allow you to work it out!
  5. Coronavirus

    Just as with the flu, covid will be around from now on. And as with the flu, vaccines will be all there is to prevent a pandemic from happening. The covid vaccines will be updated each year, just like the flu jabs, in the hope that they cover known mutants. Herd immunity is the only answer to opening the economy fully.
  6. it could be parkett, but it doesn't look like buche!!   Be aware that if you admit liability to damage on this forum, it could be cited against you in court.   If you "think" you may have caused the spillage, then you can agree to pay for this but nothing more. (It looks to me like someone has spilled something). As LeonG says Haftpflicht is essential in germany and is pretty cheap (ca 50 euro per year), but doesn't help here if you didn't already have it. Your mietverein should arrange for an independent evaluation (Gutachter) to take place which should limit the damage to that spillage point.   As said already: don't sign anything you don't agree to!
  7. Coronavirus

    We were invited by my sister-in-law to their place for the 26th. She is a nursery teacher who has worked up until yesterday. My wife was automatically put under pressure by her sister. I simply listened to the DE health minister and R-K institute president: "stay at home; do not visit relatives if it is not essential to do so!" - my cousin has died from covid aged 47. It's not worth the risk.
  8. What made you laugh today?

    It's not all bad news!!! SECOND ‘ROARING 20S’ LIKELY TO TAKE PLACE AFTER THE PANDEMIC, PREDICTS ACADEMIC   "... society will revert to an era of indulgence, with Dr Christakis predicting that there will be a surge in “sexual licentiousness as well as a “reverse of religiosity.”   yes please ! 
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    Nigel Farage calling members of the EU “bullies and thugs” for closing their borders with the UK over the new strain of Covid-19 that has become a problem in southeast England.  
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    New UK covid testing facilities just a few metres away from the cliff-edge in Dover:   Que: "Driving home for Christmas" by Chris Rea 
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    Brexit: Police preparing for disruption at every port and airport as no-deal looms   Is Number 10 going to have the fireworks celebration as the country's trade comes to a stop??
  12. too many ETF in a portfolio is a mistake

    there is no point buying more than a msci world ETF! 
  13. if you ask me it's the UK government's attempt to find a scapegoat for their mismanagement of the covid pandemic
  14. ETFs don't concern "the moment" but are for long term investment with low wonder investment bankers don't like them!
  15. The Wonderful World of TK Back Payments

    Hi, are you saying the TK has not given a detailed calculation for the back payments? Doesn't sound right to me. Have you paid anything to them since 2014? Some details missing before giving sensible advice on path forward...

    up the creek
  17. too many ETF in a portfolio is a mistake

    I think since ETFs are buy-and-hold investments, you should aim for diversity at as low as possible fees. The most widely recommended mix is 2 ETFs 70:30 world: emerging markets I think if you go beyond those, you fill your depot with ETFs with higher fees and no further diversification.

    wishing everyone a happy Christmas!
