Given my plans to eventually park my moolah into a property in the next 12 to 18 months, capital protection and liquidity is my current priority. I have currently parked them in the very low yielding money market. At least it is liquid. :P While the equity markets seem to be correcting, its still too hot for me.

How about looking at commodity funds? Looks like the market is betting on a commodity led recovery. But that also seems to depend a lot on China's consumption.

This week is going to be interesting with the Dubai incident...
But it may also mean stocks and property will face some adjustments.

I would say too far away and not big enough to be a major concern. Plus Abu Dhabi is rich and will probably come to some deal with Dubai to make sure things do not get out of hand.

Wait for a delay of payments or a default in Asia and then see what happens ;).

Quite a few foreign banks are affected: HSBC, Barclays, etc. Good time to buy, as ppl say it should bounce back quite quickly. The drop's been quite significant (for me anyway).

Does everyone do Sg shares BTW? The HK market is good fun- good for gains and losses ;D

Seems to be a ripple rather than a tsunami....
Share prices have held quite steady....

During the current downturn, where should we put our money?
I would assume many folks here have delayed their hi fi purchases and may consider holding onto hard cash, maybe even in a biscuit tin at home...:)

The best place to park one's cash and had always been, would be gold, as in bullion pieces, wether small or a  1kg bar. It is a currency for all time, all situation & all crises; readily traderable, unlike currency notes; which can become worthless overnight.

I had, when I started working park a very small portion of then my salary in 5gm, 10gm & 20gm Credit Swiss .999 gold bars, would tell how much was then prices; kept them in a safe deposit box.  Used them later on, for paying for a flat renovation ( new).....

Gold....if one can afford to apportion part of their salary to buy & keep, and in times of emergenies , readily converted to cash....

Should mention that I know nothing about this stuff. My wife likes to play shares. She's made about $1200 since Fri cos of Dubai.

Hmmm... perhaps I should pay more attention to this stuff  :P  *dreams of hifi purchases*
