Ever fancied yourself as an investment guru? Well lets have a little game, just sign yourself up here (It's pretty easy):

http://www.bullbearings.co.uk

The rules:
1. You are only allowed current FTSE 100 listed companies.
2. You must disclose your trades to the group.

Any one else playing?

Bonkers provisions for bad debt. I'd have had A&L instead if I could but they are not FTSE 100 any more .

Half of the family savings are tied up in the UK stock market, which gives me a hobby to keep me out of mischief. Despite the general gloom, there are still massive profits to be made. Look at Barratt Developments...was only 45p a few weeks ago, now 165p
