    Interesting to see what the 2015 model variable redefinition involved?

    Good share in the sense it perfectly plots the the volatile nature of real-estate on the island. I hope the dodgy brokers who sold this mess to ordinary people as “investable” are looking at this post. It’s nothing of the sort.

    If this was any other investment portfolio – anyone with an ounce of common sense would run a mile!

    As prices (and the ‘fortunes’ of anyone unlucky enough to be embroiled in it) continue to lurch all over the place – it would be good to correlate actual events (e.g ‘cash for passports’) to these changes – and try and come up with something that could potentially pass muster as a means of navigating oneself out of this mess and back into the black.
