stock market because stock market will be there as long as there is economy..... BUT bitcoin is not a proven thing

yet,bitcoin may not exist few years down the line............Governments around the world has not accepted it yet,

accepting them means that there will be no central banks, the whole financial system as we know it will fall apart, we

won't be needing banks anymore if that happens.............. do u think governments and central banks will let go of their

power to control general public through financial system so easily? doubtful,they will probably do everything in their

power to stop bitcoin.........so bitcoins future is still uncertain.

real estate is good BUT it requires lot of expertise to choose the right property, it requires huge investments and most importantly it's not liquid, u can not just wake up one fine morning and sell it or buy it... it takes lot of time and paper work.

precious metal is better, can give good return and lot more liquid...

But the best is stock market, extremely liquid, can give you 1000% or more returns in few years if the investment is right, does not require huge initial investment unlike real estate...

I go with Valerie to buy real estate or any individual apartment or an individual house and then give it for Rent basis

Atleast some amount of fixed money will be credited to your account every month

Real Estate is about the only thing that is predictable.
I am referring mostly to land.

People always need a place to live.
We all need to eat and our food comes from land.

I purchased a small half acre of land many years ago that was
situated near a lake. It was all wooded but had a nice view of
the lake. It wasn't very good for fishing because it was up high
on the hill. I paid $2.000 for it thinking that some day I might
build a cabin on it. I never did but a few years later I sold it
for $60,000 and now a very nice house sits there with a long
walk way down to the lake.

I own farm land and I rent it out. I receive a third of what
the crop brings every season.

I've owned houses in which I sold for much higher prices than
I paid for it. In fact, the house I live in now, I built and mostly
built with my own two hands. If I were to sell it today, I would
get at least twice the price of what I put into it.

The stock market is a very fragile system. It can crash, go up
and down, companies go out of business every day, they sell
to other companies, etc. I am not saying it is not wise to invest.
I do own stock. I am just saying that it is not the best way to
go.

Bitcoin, I believe, is a short tern system. If you own Bitcoin
I would advise selling some as soon as you have gained your
investment back. Then when it is high, sell. When it is low,
buy only with a partial amount of your gain.

I believe banks will phase out one day but I don't see that
happening in my life time, maybe yours.

If I am not mistaken one of the main reasons for the beginning of the recession in 2007 was the collapse of the real estate sector in the US,thats why the recession was different from the previous ones it took longer to end just because experts could not determine how to revive the economy,people lost 70% of capital in the stock market many people lost everything leading to sucide,even today most shares have not recovered to pre recession highs,banks are in depth even today because of NPA'S and bad loans,putting money in one place can be very risky it depends on investment trends in a country how one can balance their funds in diffrent asset class.

Yes, you are mistaken.

A large reason was due to the HOUSING MARKET.

Some people have a tendency to label 'Real Estate' into one entity but it's not.
Real Estate consist of new housing, old housing, manufacturing facilities, office
space, farm land, hunting land, estate land, apartments, rental apartments,
condominiums, and more.

What happen was due primarily to the corporate lending companies such as
'Fannie Mae' as an example. Loans were given to people for new and/or old
housing. The problem arose when the loans were given out to people that
could not afford to pay the house mortgage.

No matter what you buy, whether it is bitcoin, land, housing, stocks, etc, you
want to make sure you have the money to pay for it!

I don't think there was much suicide going around during that time. The
stock market crash of many years ago, totally different story about that.

Golden Rule
No single investment can be good investment

Example ...One can not eat brick if one can not sell real estate

Every investment performs different in different time frame

Well in regards to land, it rarely if ever depreciates.

About the only thing I can think of is if you were to buy land on an ocean beach.
There has certainly been many fortunes made doing that but what if a Tsunami
comes along or the land simply sinks down into the water? I guess you could
say that would be a loss unless you want to sell fish or shells. :mrgreen:

There are areas such as places in Florida in which entire houses and even a motel
has sank into the ground. A hole opens and swallows the entire house. I think
that would be difficult to sell a sink hole.

If you have your property insured, then most probable you wouldn't lose anyway.

If you own land, you always have some where to live. Depending on where your
land is, you probably have a food source because you can plant something to eat.

Right now, at this very moment, if someone said to me, here is $5,000. You can
do one of two things with it. 1. Buy Bitcoin OR 2. Buy Land
That would be a simple decision for me. I would buy land.
