  • Bootlace replied to the topic Aussie rob in the forum Help Needed! 14 years, 9 months ago

    SNM, you are on the money. The reason i asked for clarification (i'm a card counter from way back to my uni days) is that it seemed to me that perhaps this Aussie Rob guy was making a comparison between share trading and gambling, in that money management and stop losses are the way to riches.If this was the case then i would ignore EVERYTHING…[Read more]

    Can you clarify what you meant by this statement? Are you claiming that you can be a long term winner by playing casino games and the pokies simply through loss management…[Read more]

    All the talk around this area is about if/when proper public transport will come out this way, and personally I think North Lakes is getting so big it may very well happen in next 5 years. Certainly out west (Springfield lakes, towards Ipswitch I believe this almost a reality)

    I think i'd be too scared to take it for a run, i'd be more than happy enough just to be in the same room  as one!It would have to be by far the rarest of the old school Aussie cars, and there have been some rare ones… The VL SV F20 (i guess VL's can be called old school now!) had only 4 examples also, 2 that were sold to the public and 2 that…[Read more]

    The car i'm currently driving is a 1999 Holden Commodore S Pack factory supercharged.I saw it advertised on Ebay just after it was listed with a starting price of $1800 and i emailed him hoping his reserve would be around $4500-$5000 but not really expecting it to be…. I then got an email back saying he would sell it today for $1500! I dropped…[Read more]

  • Bootlace replied to the topic Credit file issue in the forum Finance 14 years, 11 months ago

    Hi ToWhomItMayInterest, are your defaults paid? Unpaid? Currently being repaid etc? While there is no such thing as a good default, a default which has been paid is seen as significantly better than an unpaid default. Another factor that comes into play is the recency of the blemishes, for example, if all defaults were paid in full 3+ (or another…[Read more]

  • Bootlace replied to the topic No Deposit Loan in the forum Finance 14 years, 11 months ago

    The vital piece of info missing here is whether your 210k in shares was funded by a margin loan?If your shares are heavily geared, you are going to have problems (obtaining finance) until you clear some debt, but if your shares are unencumbered you have options (so to speak!)Let's assume you have no margin loan for the purposes of this example.…[Read more]

    Thanks for the replies guys. My dad has also just called to say that he could only afford giving me exactly $360k. No more. So I need to get a mortgage of around $100k.

    Beaten to the punch by Richard. My apologies!Best you listen to his advice rather than mine anyway :P

    Alan i have to disagree with you on a few points.Pending any probationary period that may be in place, i'd say that alexz1011 would certainly find mainstream financiers would lend the amount in question. There is certainly sufficient income to service a loan of that size (unless there are other large debts we are unaware of) and with a very low…[Read more]

  • Ok maybe i'm cynical, but i'd be very wary of this offer. It sounds to me that they simply wish to purchase an option on the property.My parents in law recently had their house on the market and were bombarded with offers of 'i'll pay you $10,000 today and the asking price in 2 years time and in the meantime i'll pay rent at market value'In my…[Read more]

    WJ Hooker, with respect, you might want to research the term 'Martingale System' because this is effectively what your staking plan is.I do not profess to be a professional gambler, however i have considerable experience in the area of probability, expectation (negative and positive) mostly gleaned from my years as a part time card…[Read more]

    Sports arbitrage betting has been around for a long time. In theory it sounds great, but there are MANY pitfalls. To list just a few…1. Arbing often relies on very small margins, therefore a substantial sum must be wagered before a decent amount can be returned.

    As a broker based in Brisbane myself, i’d be lying if i didn’t say i’d appreciate all the business i could get…

    However being only a relatively inexperienced broker and also not a great contributor to this forum (yet) morally i don’t feel i have the right to trawl for business on this particular site.

  • Bootlace replied to the topic Sample and partners in the forum Finance 17 years, 2 months ago

    In fact reading back over happy customer’s post, several parts seem suspiciously similar to the S&P script. Hmmmm.

  • Bootlace replied to the topic Sample and partners in the forum Finance 17 years, 2 months ago

    Just a wild guess, but perhaps ‘happy customer’ may be happy because he/she is somehow affiliated with S&P…..

    I find it hard to believe anyone could have anything positive to say about them.
