Share investors had it good for the last 10 years or so. But up’s and down’s are just all part of the “fun” when investing. I don’t like the ‘down’ times but I have come to accept them.
The Australian Share Market has returned an average of 13.21% over time. But I’m going to look at this conservatively and expect a 9% return. If I invested $10,000 in 1990 and achieved a 9% return each year – my $10,000 would have turned into $132,677. And I would be laughing!
