As many other crashes, the Black Monday crash followed a major bull market in which the Dow rose by about 250% in a five-year period from 1982 through 1987. Also like many other crashes, it was preceded by a few smaller declines before major panic set in. Two of the three trading days preceding Black Monday were pretty dismal, with drops of 3.8% and 4.6%.
The USA is a religious nation that has been misguided by religious fundamentalism and a literal reading of Christian doctrine. From a spiritual standpoint, the USA is suffering from fear and intolerance that results in social and spiritual division. A belief in a loving God should not divide but unite people and have tolerance for those on alternative paths. Spiritually minded people in the USA can influence their nation’s path with thoughts of tolerance and acceptance of all cultures and faiths. Hope and prayer are not enough for, as they say in India, hands that help are greater than lips that pray.
Market crashes are far more common in our imagination than in reality. This is because they are vivid and scary events. Given our evolution, we are wired to worry about these sorts of vivid events. While, this may have been useful in helping us avoid getting eaten by tigers, it's less useful for rational, disciplined stock market investing. By thinking this topic through now, hopefully you're a little better prepared when the next crash hits.
We hear very little about Australia, yet the economy is in trouble, Immigration is a huge issue, but of most concern is the head in the sand attitude to climate change. Opening up more coal mines, that kill the reef, and farm land , massive bush fires and cyclones. Where do you see Australia heading and is there any hope of a turn a round ? Thank you for your insight.

I’ve been listening to psychic Lisa Caza’s 2018 predictions. The similarities with your predictions are uncanny. She makes one prediction about Big Ben being in the news this year but she could not be specific. That reminded me of your Big Ben prediction and the possibility that something really will happen to Big Ben this year, and what you saw may have nothing to do with the Grenfell Tower fire after all. I understand the clocktower is being repaired at the moment. Either the repairs could go wrong or a criminal posing as a builder could sabotage something. I wonder what you think.


J’ai 42 ans et j’en suis à mon cinquième conseiller financier. J’ai finalement trouver le bon, qui même à 2.5% de frais, me fait quand même « performer » mon portefeuille dans les alentours de 9% à 11% net de frais. A ces rendements, j’ai aucun problème à donner une somme plus importante à mon conseiller. Je n’ai pas le temps et les connaissances pour obtenir ce genre de rendement. Je suis relativement encore jeune(:)) et mon approche est très aggressive donc en retour j’espère une performance minimum.

Stock up on supplies.  Make sure you are prepped. If you’re behind on your preparedness efforts and need to do this quickly, you can order buckets of emergency food just to have some on hand. (Learn how to build an emergency food supply using freeze dried food HERE) Hit the grocery store or wholesale club and stock up there, too, on  your way home.
I've posted a Guest Blog Entry to the Barbara Friedberg Personal Finance blog titled Six Dangerous Investing Myths. Juicy Excerpt: Stocks are more risky than bonds.This has been the conventional wisdom for a long, long time. But risk is uncertainty. If Shiller is right that long-term returns are highly predictable, stocks are not nearly as risky as we have long believed them to be. If Shiller is right, stocks are a high-risk asset class only for those who don’t take valuations into…

HARRY DENT JR.: We may be starting a topping process. I’m seeing signs of that, but it hasn’t yet been proven. We ought to see the market start to go down by early next year. If it doesn’t, I’m going back to the drawing board. If the market doesn’t start crashing by late January or early February, then we aren’t topping here. But we’re saying there’s going to be a crash. It’s just a matter of when [exactly].
As we mark the 10th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, there are still ongoing debates about the causes and consequences of the financial crisis, and whether the lessons needed to prepare for the next one have been absorbed. But looking ahead, the more relevant question is what actually will trigger the next global recession and crisis, and when.
“They’ve never seen a sell-off like this, and it’s especially scary because they don’t know who to ask for advice — they may not have a relationship with a financial adviser they can call or text to walk them back from the cliff,” said Jason Dorsey, president of The Center for Generational Kinetics, a research firm. “For many of them, it’s been a pretty rude awakening.”
After reading this book, you’ll have the chance to start actualizing your dreams by trading shares of a company on the stock market.  This book will provide you with all of the tools that you’ll need to get started as a beginning stock market investor, without all of the frills that come with learning how to trade stock through an online course or another type of avenue. 

On August 24, 1921, the Dow Jones Industrial Average stood at a value of 63.9. By September 3, 1929, it had risen more than sixfold, touching 381.2. It would not regain this level for another 25 years. By the summer of 1929, it was clear that the economy was contracting, and the stock market went through a series of unsettling price declines. These declines fed investor anxiety, and events came to a head on October 24, 28, and 29 (known respectively as Black Thursday, Black Monday, and Black Tuesday).


Vous voulez investir en bourse, mais vous ne savez pas trop comment vous y prendre? Vous souhaitez empocher les 2-3% de frais de gestion plutôt que de les verser à votre banque? La solution est simple, gérez vous-mêmes vos placements en ligne. Certes, ça requiert un peu plus de temps et d’engagement, mais c’est payant (combien?). En plus des meilleurs rendements, vous bénéficierez de nouvelles connaissances et vous prendrez vraiment le contrôle de vos finances. D’ailleurs, je pense qu’il s’agit d’un passage obligé vers l’indépendance financière. Voici comment procéder.
I get a lot of flak about that one. We’re in a down cycle now, and it won’t bottom till around early 2020. Demographics tell you when the economy will slow, but sunspots tell you when a crash or major stock correction is going to happen. We researched sunspot cycles, recessions and major financial crises as far back [as possible], and 11 out of 11 happened in a down sunspot cycle.
In August, the wheat price fell when France and Italy were bragging of a magnificent harvest, and the situation in Australia improved. This sent a shiver through Wall Street and stock prices quickly dropped, but word of cheap stocks brought a fresh rush of "stags", amateur speculators and investors. Congress voted for a 100 million dollar relief package for the farmers, hoping to stabilize wheat prices. By October though, the price had fallen to $1.31 per bushel.[25]
In May 2008, when crude oil had broken through $100 a barrel, Merriman astrologically predicted—on the record—that it would top out at $144 (give or take $8) before plummeting within two years. Then he said it would decline, somewhere between 77 percent and 93 percent.) Goldman Sachs Group Inc., by contrast, thought crude could hit $200 a barrel, and traditional energy economists at Deutsche Bank AG were stupefied by the confusing market dynamics. Sure enough, crude hit $147.27 on July 11, 2008 and slid to $32.48 five months later.
Weingarten is prone to soliloquies extolling his “world-class, nobody better” forecasting record. Asked to explain his methodology, he answers in gnomic riddles or not at all. The family office guy asks how financial astrology might relate to SpaceX and other efforts to explore beyond Earth. Weingarten cuts him off and says he can’t give him an “informed decision about how children on the moon will be affected.”
Pour répondre à ta question sur les conseillers humains chez Wealthsimple, j’ai reçu plusieurs courriel une fois que je me suis inscrit sur le site pour me dire que je pouvais à tout moment parler à un conseiller au téléphone ou bien envoyer un courriel (il y avait probablement aussi l’option de « chatter » en direct avec un conseiller mais je ne suis plus sûr à 100%) si jamais on voulait de l’aide ou des conseils pour ouvrir un compte (REER, CELI, REEE, compte personnel, compte conjoint, etc.) . Bref, il y avait du soutien si on voulait.

A light-hearted look back on the six key lessons that investors can learn from studying stock market history. There are better times to invest in equities than others, but - crucially - we only know whether now is a good time or not with the benefit of hindsight. The good news is that, even if you invest just as markets are about to tumble - as they did in 1929, for example - you will be rewarded if you hold tight and resist the temptation to keep tinkering with your portfolio.


Ben, you have many lifetimes of dealing with both wealth and poverty so you have reincarnated to use your knowledge gathered over many lifetimes. Essentially you have very fixed patterns around money, rent, mortgage, tax, business, shares, wealth, budget and so on. Even shopping. Taurus and Scorpio are fixed signs so they tend to dislike change, on the financial front, and get rather set in their ways. This will not go on. It actually can’t go on. And you will be liberated as a result. It may all seem very new and different – perhaps even rather dramatic – but by the time you get to 2019 you will see how ‘chained’ you were by some rather stuck attitudes towards money, property, taxation, business and the rest. You’re being offered a way to have a lot more space and room to move in your life, if you can just budge your position on your budget. It’s the ‘budge that budget’ cycle and it’s a smart idea to just go with it. Try not to hang on or look nostalgically back at 2017, 2016, 2015 when it comes. The future is rushing towards you.
Is this going to be another October to remember for Wall Street?  As I have explained previously, the month of October has historically been the worst month by far for the U.S. stock market, and it has also been the month when our most famous stock market crashes have taken place. The stock market crash that started the Great Depression in 1929 happened in October.  The largest single day percentage decline in stock market history happened in October 1987.  And most of us still remember what happened in October 2008.  So will we be adding October 2018 to that list?  Well, so far things are certainly moving in that direction.  Between Wednesday and Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged a total of 1,378 points.  And the S&P 500 has now broken below the all-important 200-day moving average.  If the S&P 500 bounces back above the 200-day moving average on Friday, that will be a sign that things have stabilized at least for the moment.  If that doesn’t happen, all hell might break loose next week.

Great food. In July of 2017. it was discovered that I got type 2 diabetes, By the end of the July month. I was given a prescription for the Metformin, I stated with the some diet and followed it completely for several weeks but was unable to get my blood sugar below 140, Without results to how for my hard work. I really panicked and called my doctor. His response?? Deal with it yourself, I started to feel that something wasn’t right and do my own research, Then I found Ella’s diabetes story (google How Ella freed diabetes  ) .. I read it from cover to cover and I started with the diet and by the next week. my blood sugar was 100, Since then. I get a fasting reading between the mid 70s and 80s, My doctor was very surprised at the results that. the next week. he took me off the Metformin drug, I lost 16 pounds in my first month and lost more than 3+ inches off my waist and I’m able to work out twice a day while still having lots of energy. The truth is that we can get off the drugs and help myself by trying natural methods.
Thank you. Home is really Cancer in your chart, as Cancer rules the Fourth House, which describes your apartment or house. You have not logged in, so I can’t see your birth chart, but I suspect you and/or your husband have Cancer factors in your birth charts, and the reason you have spent years without feeling settled, is that Pluto in Capricorn (the opposite sign to Cancer) has been slowly clashing with just about everything in your combined Fourth Houses, in the sign of Cancer. Log in and I’ll try to get to this list again tomorrow.
Several universities have moved to put some of their curriculum online for free. MIT’s OpenCourseWare program has lecture notes available from an investment course originally taught in 2003, but the bones are still sound. Open Yale has courses available on economic and financial topics. Stanford’s self-study courses list can be searched by topic. Note that you won’t receive college credit for taking these courses online.
Analysts and investment bankers worked very closely together.  Whenever a company was trying to raise capital, the investment bankers made sure their research firms would put favorable ratings on stocks.  This led to companies having favorable ratings even though the companies was in serious financial trouble.  In some cases analysts had favorable ratings on stock less than a month before a company filed for chapter 11. 
In 2009, Tesco used the phrase, "Change for Good" as advertising, which is trade marked by Unicef for charity usage but not for commercial or retail use, which prompted the agency to say, "It is the first time in Unicef’s history that a commercial entity has purposely set out to capitalise on one of our campaigns and subsequently damage an income stream which several of our programmes for children are dependent on." They went on to call on the public "...who have children’s welfare at heart, to consider carefully who they support when making consumer choices."[126][127]
But this is just the periphery of Mueller’s efforts. Mark my words, the Trump organization will ultimately be exposed to have laundered millions of dollars of Russian mob money into America over the past decade. This is the reason Mueller has subpoenas for German bank records, and why Trump won’t release his tax returns. Trump has escaped bankruptcy three times, once with the help of dirty Russian money. And how many times does a presidential campaign need to meet with Russian officials?
I had decided to find out what German clairvoyants say about the future of Europe, went on YouTube and came across a video called “Palmblatt-Prophezeihungen, Katastrophale Zulu ft says such ten Europa a 2018”. The source of the videos’ text is Thomas Ritter, a collector of Naadi oracle leaves ( German: Palmblatt). He had some Naadi leaves translated by a retired professor who understands the symbols used in the leaves. The prophecies are published on his website and they talk about the coming changes in Europe. Bearing in mind that the original Naadi leaves are thousands of years old, the prophecies are absolutely mind-boggling and corroborate prophecies from other sources.
I agree with Craigs. It’s likely Trump coming to power, one way or other. One way is elections-win. Other way is stern ‘power grab’ or cause some civil unrest. Something bad is going to happen starting mid-Nov regarding Trump, throughout 2017. May be civil unrest throughout 2017-2018….. A huge possibility of War between India-Pakistan, and Muslims being destroyed in 2017 all over the world…. Then it would be West vs Russia and China… 2020 is the finish line, that could wipe off up to 95% world population of living beings, not just humans. HOWEVER, if spiritual people plan differently, then God-power will intervene and save major collapse… these being future events, the post-US election is going to be ‘war’. Likely a totally new ‘spiritual entity/power’ will rise up in US and possibly prevent major events. May be? (Just guessing after reading things online, and what I feel is ‘right’, intuitively).
Another not so great thing going on is a Saturn return happening in the Dow’s chart. This happens to all of us between the ages of 27 to 30 years old and if you’ve been a good girl or boy, good things manifest, your career takes off but so does your responsability. This is a manifesting aspect, a maturing aspect, making people or entities reap the karma of their past, so if you’ve been bad, it’s not a good time. It’s not uncommon for people who have lived a reckless life to die during this aspect or become very ill or near death.
I recently posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Budgets Are Sexy blog entitled When Stock Prices Crash, Where Does the Money Go? Juicy Excerpt: We can bid stock prices up to any level we want. We can all vote ourselves raises if we like. The only penalty is that, when we bid them up too high, they must crash back down in the following years. What is made from nothing must eventually return to nothing. It always happens that way. It always will happen that way. Now you know. Lotsa good…
The number of major store chains shutting down or downsizing is remarkable. One of the latest to fall is Toys “R” Us. Some may find consolation in the fact that one of the reasons for the crumbling of traditional brick-and-mortar stores—but by no means the only one—has been Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN). But the day could come when even this giant is slain.

Though he hails from a little-known town in southeastern Nepal called Jhapa, Vashistha has gained international recognition for his ability to read the stars. In 2017, he was named the best astrologer in Asia by the Asian Astrologer Congress and the World Astrology Federation. His readings focus more on substantive geopolitical predictions and personal fortunes than hokey horoscope drivel, and his regular clients include Nepal’s Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba, Bollywood actress Manisha Koirala, and American celebrities whose names he wouldn’t reveal. All of them treat his readings as gospel, so seldom is he wrong.
We haven’t had an October like this in a very long time.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down another 327 points on Thursday, and overall the Dow is now down close to 1,500 points from the peak of the market.  Unlike much of the rest of the world, it is still too early to say that the U.S. is facing a new “financial crisis”, but if stocks continue to plunge like this one won’t be too far away.  And as you will see below, many believe that what we have seen so far is just the start of a huge wave of selling.  Of course it would be extremely convenient for Democrats if stocks did crash, because it would give them a much better chance of doing well in the midterm elections.  This is the most heated midterm election season that I can ever remember, and what U.S. voters choose to do at the polls in November is going to have very serious implications for the immediate future of our country.

On September 4, 1929 the stock market hit an all time high as a result of the American industrial revolution right after the Labor Day weekend.  At that time banks were invested heavily in stocks and individual investors borrowed heavily on margin to buy stocks.  By October 24, 1929 the stock market was down 20%.  On October 28, 1929 the stock market was down another 13.5%.  On the historical day of October 29, 1929 the stock market dropped 11.5% to bring the Dow down a total of 39.6% from its high.  The market had lost 14 billion dollars of wealth.  A quote from the Wall Street Journal said “STOCKS STEADY AFTER DECLINE  Bankers State Support Continues- Spokesman Expresses View Hysteria is Passing. ” Wall Street Journal, 10/30/29  (The trading floor of the New York Stock
