Weekend reading for investors: 9/5/09

Every week I read a large number of personal finance and investing articles. Here’s my latest weekly shortcut to the best.

So how is the market rally going for you? Being almost 100% invested after repeatedly buying through the bear market, like anyone invested I’ve seen a big bounce. Not so much that it wouldn’t have been better to cash out in late 2007, of course, but hindsight is a wonderful thing!

That said, I’m pretty pleased with the timing of my post saying that if you weren’t investing then into the March lows, when would you buy?

If that turns out to be the bottom, that post will be a small consolation. I’d genuinely prefer equities to stay low for years. Cheap prices are the best way to build up future wealth if you’re adding money to your portfolio.

So is this a “dash to trash” or a new bull market? I suspect the latter, but I’d prefer the former!

Good reads from the financial blogosphere
