This Chart is at the bottom of Mike's screens. What is it?

Hi MR!

Maybe some sort of VIX fund/composite; just a totally uneducated guess.

Cheers!

I got curious, but all I could come up with is that it might have been an index of some sort on the London Exchange (KBT). Volume on the yahoo chart goes to zero around October of 2013, but the price keeps getting calculated. Looking up VLIC on the London Exchange got me an invalid symbol. Perhaps there is some kind of 5 year statute of limitations on the symbol, but something didn't get cleaned up in Yahoo, so it keeps getting calculated?

I found that too, cap, but I still have no idea what it is...I remember there used to be a chart for housing, and initially I thought that's what ^VLIC was, but it ain't, which started my quest...still have no clue. And there's no chart for housing anymore, so I made my own. FWIW, even though housing feels like a bubble, it's actually sitting around average CAGR right now. I'm thinking of buying a home after my divorce, which is what prompted this whole thing. :-(

Some commentator said that rising interest rates lowers real estate prices because mortgages become more expensive...

I live in my fully paid up apartment. Nice to have.

Yeah, I will be basically 'homeless' sooner than later. For now, wife and I are co-habitating until the divorce is final. But, I'm struggling with whether to buy or rent, but leaning towards renting and investing my equity for now. The chart I plotted did not confirm what I'd thought, which was an overheated RE market. It actually points to a fairly valued RE market instead. The flip side is I'd be using equity from a fairly priced asset to potentially buy a fairly priced asset. Or, I can rent and sit on the equity payout to try and buy an undervalued home, but I may be waiting a long time for the market to turn, all the while throwing money into someone else's pocket while I wait. What to do? Divorce sucks...

You aren't wrong there!

Maybe rent awhile before deciding? If it's legal to make major life-changing decisions within 6 months of divorce, it shouldn't be.
