Things take a differen turn whenever there are difficult trading conditions, as you would think that would be the case just at this moment, with brexit causing shambolic parliarmentary scenes every day. The stocks and shares markets were expected to dive below ground level – there was going to be the worst financial crash known to mankind blah blah. The brexit divorce deal is grinding its slow way along and the sceptics amongst us feel sure that if we see the heavies in Brussells looking pleased, clapping themselves and our PM on the back, then the deal is much more in their favour than it can ever be in ours. But my particular share portfolio, based mainly in europen and uk interests has not really nose dived. It’s dropped a tiny bit, or rahter, not made up as quickly a sum I took out earlier this year. Things may turn out on our side after all.
