5 ways to turn down the noise around investing
Although perhaps ignore this suggestion:
Not all as difficult as may first appear. And by posting a link fail on first principle
Yes, much better recommendations than that waffle from Shane Oliver.
6. Stop going on PropertyChat
PC is just as much or more a social thing rather than all about investing for me unfortunately for the Moderators.
Where else would I go when bored at work?
SatayKing represents the green line
How on earth did you get a copy of my ECG tracing @Burgs?
That green line is a real compliment to you on how well you ignore the everyday market noise. A lot of people could and have learnt a lot from your care free investing approach.
Nice of you to say but I must decline any accolade.
I do, however, wish some of the 'spurts would just shut up and direct their focus to more pertinent matters such as probity of boards and management.
I reckon most of their writings have an impact of confusing the punters.

Gradual Improvements Redux - The Irrelevant Investor
The fact that bad news travels ten times faster than good news is what separates investors from market returns. You would think that keeping up with the market is as simple as buying an index fund and leaving it alone. And it is that simple, but it isn’t that easy, because bad news smashes your face against an amplifier, while good news just plays quietly in the background.
Doing nothing should be the default setting for most investors, but as the charts above show, that’s easier said than done.
No, no, no, no. You have misinterpreted the situation I'm afraid.
Green = ECG reading after coffee
Blue = ECG reading without coffee
The blue is when I’m relaxed, should see it when I’m stressed. Being served a vegan sausage sandwich at Bunnings would send my reading off the chart.
People who write things like "Google 'the coming financial crisis' and you get 236 million results - up from 115 million when I did it 18 months ago" are pretty clueless about how Google's search engine works, what it actually finds, and the burgeoning content on the internet. It proves nothing. I expect better from Shane Oliver, whose work I normally quite like reading.
Heresy, surely. Is there someone we can burn?
Turning Down the Volume
Robert can’t get enough of the news. He follows every headline coming out of Washington. He watches cable news outlets and monitors social media to catch all the breaking news, but is feeling depressed about the state of the world and is fearful that bad things are going to happen. Bombarded by so much media ‘noise,’ he can no longer figure out what news may actually be relevant to his investments.
