The resultant rise of mass unemployment is seen as a result of the crash, although the crash is by no means the sole event that contributed to the depression. The Wall Street Crash is usually seen as having the greatest impact on the events that followed and therefore is widely regarded as signaling the downward economic slide that initiated the Great Depression. True or not, the consequences were dire for almost everybody. Most academic experts agree on one aspect of the crash: It wiped out billions of dollars of wealth in one day, and this immediately depressed consumer buying.[36]
Tech stocks, this year’s best-performing industry, will be in the spotlight, as executives from Twitter, Facebook and Google’s parent Alphabet begin testimony to Congress on Wednesday while Trump blasts about antitrust. Friday’s monthly payrolls data precedes a policy meeting by Federal Reserve later in the month, when the central bank is expected to raise interest rates for an eighth time since 2015.

Conversely, if production issues strike a major producer (imagine, for example, a civil war in Libya), then skyrocketing oil prices could also have a detrimental impact. Rising crude prices could lead to significantly higher inflation levels and sap consumers of discretionary income at the pump or in their homes via fuel oil. We saw something similar to this in 2008, when West Texas Intermediate made a run at $150 per barrel following escalating tensions between Iran and the United States.
Ceres at 3 Scorpio will do it. You were born with Ceres (deal-making, compromises, periodic crises, empowerment, the balance of power) in the Eighth House of finance, property, charity, taxation and business. Right now Uranus is preparing to move to 3 Taurus for the first time in most people’s lives. It’s massive. The time has come to look at the way you habitually deal with banks, family or partners (in the context or rent, mortgage, inheritance) and so on. You can’t stick to those old habits now. In fact, it will be obvious from May 2018 and again in 2019. Uranus in Taurus is really about the whole world changing, and yet it has a direct impact on all that you own, earn or owe. Ceres in mythology was the mother-in-law of Pluto and mother of Proserpina, so sometimes this placement is really about the family and all that is in your will – their wills too. Perhaps this is the focus. You are going to have to adapt and adjust, go day-to-day for a while, prepare to make concessions and compromises and take your part in what is basically a massive transformation of your lifestyle, across 2019 and into 2020. When Jupiter conjuncts your Pluto at 20 Scorpio later this year, into the European Autumn/Australian Spring – you will have a stunning solution and opportunity not possible in 12 years to take control of all that you earn, own or owe. It will be empowering. Watch Jupiter move to 20 Scorpio and seriously consider that open door.
Tesco was founded in 1919 by Jack Cohen as a group of market stalls.[9] The Tesco name first appeared in 1924, after Cohen purchased a shipment of tea from T. E. Stockwell and combined those initials with the first two letters of his surname,[10] and the first Tesco shop opened in 1931 in Burnt Oak, Barnet.[11][12][13] His business expanded rapidly, and by 1939 he had over 100 Tesco shops across the country.[14]
Since the early 1990s, many of the largest exchanges have adopted electronic 'matching engines' to bring together buyers and sellers, replacing the open outcry system. Electronic trading now accounts for the majority of trading in many developed countries. Computer systems were upgraded in the stock exchanges to handle larger trading volumes in a more accurate and controlled manner. The SEC modified the margin requirements in an attempt to lower the volatility of common stocks, stock options and the futures market. The New York Stock Exchange and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange introduced the concept of a circuit breaker. The circuit breaker halts trading if the Dow declines a prescribed number of points for a prescribed amount of time. In February 2012, the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) introduced single-stock circuit breakers.[66]
In margin buying, the trader borrows money (at interest) to buy a stock and hopes for it to rise. Most industrialized countries have regulations that require that if the borrowing is based on collateral from other stocks the trader owns outright, it can be a maximum of a certain percentage of those other stocks' value. In the United States, the margin requirements have been 50% for many years (that is, if you want to make a $1000 investment, you need to put up $500, and there is often a maintenance margin below the $500).

Ce jour-là, l'indice Dow Jones Industrial Average a perdu 998,52 points avant de regagner environ 600 points, entre 14 h 42 et 14 h 52 au New York Stock Exchange6[réf. insuffisante],7. Une baisse de 9,2 % en l'espace de 10 minutes était sans précédent dans l'histoire. Cet incident a mis au jour l'implication du high frequency trading qui représente désormais les deux tiers8[réf. insuffisante] des transactions boursières sur le NYSE.
As a case in point, I present to you subprime auto loans, or loans given to consumers with less-than-prime credit scores (usually 550 to 619 on the FICO score scale). Having a lower credit score typically gives these folks fewer lending options, which allows lenders that are willing to work with subprime consumers to charge a notably higher interest rate, relative to prime-rated consumers. The problem is these consumers usually have subpar credit scores for a reason, and delinquency rates on these subprime and deep subprime loans are shooting higher.

On stock markets, a company’s value is usually determined by how much money it makes, or is predicted to make. Meme value of course is determined by popularity, but what level makes a meme good? 4chan users generally consider a meme to be dead as soon as “normies” start using it, so does it gain or lose value when it hits the mainstream? Is a meme less valuable just because it lives out its lifespan only on one platform? Vaisman and Wink don’t think so, yet on a stock market, growth usually increases value. Vaisman admitted that the problem was working out how “if we [created] a system where when we have X amount of this meme and Y amount of this meme, how do we make sure they’re properly represented in terms of popularity?”
From October 6–10 the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) closed lower in all five sessions. Volume levels were record-breaking. The DJIA fell over 1,874 points, or 18%, in its worst weekly decline ever on both a points and percentage basis. The S&P 500 fell more than 20%.[36] The week also set 3 top ten NYSE Group Volume Records with October 8 at #5, October 9 at #10, and October 10 at #1.[37]

Since Saturn will be entering Aquarius later in 2020, I predict that the shift towards the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies will be inevitable, in whatever form it will be by then… After all, Aquarius is the reformer of the zodiac and once Saturn in Capricorn tears up the poorly operating structures, removing illegal operations, scammy cryptocurrencies, ICOs and even IPOs (in traditional markets), it will want to adopt a new world order. We will not see the ultimate results of that until well into mid-2020’s (so mark my words 😉) because we will also be dealing with some environmental issues (but I won’t discuss that now), but for now, sit tight and don’t even think about fooling the system anymore. Trust me, Saturn in Capricorn won’t allow you to…

If you could only listen to one person's advice during a stock market crash, let that person be famed investor, Warren Buffett. Not only will the Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B) (NYSE: BRK-A) chairman and CEO's advice serve you well, but his knack for keeping a clear head -- and even getting a bit greedy (more on that later) -- when everyone else is selling, may make his the only advice you need to navigate uncertain times.

Je suis maintenant Trader depuis bientôt un an. Tout ca a commencé en lisant sur des sites comme Seeking alpha surtout et j’ai appris a connaitre les  » leveraged etfs » qui sont supposés donner 2X ou 3X le rendement des indices, commodités etc qu’ils suivent. J’ai fait un premier placement qui m’a rapporté 15k$ en 1 semaine (j’ai atttendu de vendre une journée trop tard et finalement réalisé un profit de juste 10k$) mais j’avais été piqué !


This is the one that's probably freshest in the minds of most people reading this, so I'll just give you a quick background. Easy credit and soaring real estate values led to rampant real estate speculation by people who, quite frankly, had no business speculating in real estate. The mortgage loans used, which in many cases were made for even more than the inflated values of the underlying homes, were packaged and sold to institutions as "investment grade" securities.


The crash of 1929 involved a total stock market collapse, whereas, during 1987 stocks remained in a bull trend despite the 23% decline. The bursting of the Dot Com bubble in 2000 doesn’t appear very pronounced on the above chart. However, remember it is a chart of the Dow Jones index, which only includes 30 blue-chip companies. If you look at the tech heavy Nasdaq for the same period, you will see a very different picture.
Of course, that's an average and the market's return is seldom steady and predictable. Yet, it's important to remember that these attractive returns include many periods when the markets have lost a quarter or half their value, or worse. As a result, even if you know a crash is coming at some point, which it very likely is at some point in the coming years, then it's not a reason to avoid stocks. Provided you can stick with it you'll likely see decent returns from diversified global stocks even including the catastrophic crashes that scare you.
I recently posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Smarter Wallet blog entitled Stock Market Strategy: Market Timing Based on Long-Term Views. Juicy Excerpt: If prices can be wildly wrong in the short term but must be roughly right in the long term, it should be possible to know in advance which way prices are headed (in the long term only, not in the short term) just by knowing the valuation level you are starting from. Researchers have checked the historical data. This explanation, unlike the…

Note that there were a lot of earthquakes and volcanoes in 2009-2016. For example, on April 13-14 2010, Iceland Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted again, and its volcanic ash goes over Europe over the next few days and grounded airplanes at airports across Northern Europe. There is a concern that a larger volcano Katla near it could erupt soon. Iceland has more than 100 volcanos, many could erupt soon, and volcanoes have been erupting in Indonesia and other countries in 2010-2017. This could be a beginning to major volcano eruptions in Iceland, Indonesia, and elsewhere that could cool off the earth, ground air traffic, cause no summer and severe winters. Note that 70,000 years ago the Toba supervolcano erupted in Indonesia and nearly caused the extinction of mankind then. Volcanos can be a major problem for man's survival on earth. And volcano activity in the Canary Islands off Africa could result in a giant tsunami tidal wave hitting the East Coast of the U.S. and Europe, see this page.
Morningstar offers a wealth of information about investing — so much, in fact, that it can be intimidating to new investors. But its online classroom, which is free to access, speaks a beginner’s language and offers four different tracks dedicated to stocks, bonds, funds and portfolio building. The course is text-based (read: a little dry), but it covers virtually everything you could ever want to know about investing, with a total of 172 different courses.

Généralement, les portefeuilles proposés par les conseillers robots sont constitués de fonds négociés en bourse (FNB). Par exemple, Wealthsimple, un robot très populaire, investit votre argent dans des fonds Vanguard. Or, ces derniers commandent également des frais de gestion. Ainsi, même si Wealthsimple annonce des frais de 0.5%, en réalité, il faut ajouter les frais reliés aux FNB de 0.2% en moyenne. Au final, on parle plutôt de 0.7% de frais.
January 28, 2016: Thirty years ago today, the Challenger space shuttle exploded with seven aboard. We wrote in our CP newsletter of Dec. 31 1985: "Mars - Pluto- North Node conjunction on Christmas day foreshadowed the terrorism of the holiday period as well as the sharp market decline into that configuration... There will be additional exacerbation at the Full Moon (Jan. 28) as it squares Pluto (ruler of Debt and Terrorism).  READ MORE
I said there would be a big eruption in Iceland and India soon – which has not happened yet. However, in September 2016 I said in my predictions on my website and on my YouTube video: “I see volcanic problems around Italy around the area of Vesuvius and maybe the Island of Ischia.” (See also Hawaii prediction below) (Correct 10/10 Naples has had some of the worst earthquakes in many years. See Express 17 August 2018)

Thank you so much for the detailed reply. Yes, strangely enough identity and security systems software are part of my job! Also, financial freedom is indeed shaping up to be a major focus. I am prepared to deal with change and unknowns over the next few years. Do you have any further thoughts on how to deal with that tricky Uranus opposing Uranus? It sounds worrying. My recent Saturn return was very tough and challenging, and I hope it won’t be anything like that. Thanks again.
America, Anaconda, and Isis: When your GDP growth is higher than anyone expected, ISIS is on the run, the stock market is skyrocketing, and China is cooperating with you against North Korea, but the media still says your presidency is a failure.

According to the NYSE TICK, or uptick minus downtick, index, at precisely 2:43pm, the selling order flood was so big it not only surpassed the acute liquidation that was observed around 3PM on Wednesday, but the -1,793 print was one that had not been seen for 8 years: as Bay Crest Partners technical analyst Jonathan Krinsky wrote, the sudden and violent surge in selling as measured by the TICK index, when downtick volume overpowered upticks, was the lowest reading since the May 6, 2010 “flash crash” when liquidity dried up in markets, sending the market plummeting for a few minutes, as HFT briefly went haywire (or when a spoofer outsmarted the algos, depending on what version of events one believes).

I predict that the United Kingdom – Britain, will become a federalist state by the 2020’s. With a federal government and monarchy. Likewise, I believe that the British government will be instrumental in establishing a new EU – European Federation of Nations, with a potential return to an EU appointed Assembly similar to that of the United Nations General Assembly, instead of the current European Parliament, with the Commission becoming the civil service for the EU, and the Council of Ministers and national governments being more involved and effective. The so called Islamic State caliphate will largely fail – but will eventually became a region of Earth, the Islamic Union of nations caliphate, I therefore predict that you will see negotiations between all Islamic countries, leading up to the creation of an Islamic Union – caliphate.


A 'soft' EMH has emerged which does not require that prices remain at or near equilibrium, but only that market participants not be able to systematically profit from any momentary market 'inefficiencies'. Moreover, while EMH predicts that all price movement (in the absence of change in fundamental information) is random (i.e., non-trending), many studies have shown a marked tendency for the stock market to trend over time periods of weeks or longer. Various explanations for such large and apparently non-random price movements have been promulgated. For instance, some research has shown that changes in estimated risk, and the use of certain strategies, such as stop-loss limits and value at risk limits, theoretically could cause financial markets to overreact. But the best explanation seems to be that the distribution of stock market prices is non-Gaussian[57] (in which case EMH, in any of its current forms, would not be strictly applicable).[58][59]
The chief planet of business and trade, Mercury, will join Sun, Venus & Saturn in the fiery sign Sagittarius. This placement is likely to cause Bullishness in the market. Buying sentiments will keep the Bulls cheered up. Commodities market will also see uptrend. Sun will enter Capricorn on 14th, Sunday. Political situations will not be smooth however demand in Cement, Steel & Agro related appliance will increase. The stocks of VST Tillers, Kaveri seed, Zuari Agro, Vinati organics, ACC and Ultratech cement will see upsurge. Mars will enter Scorpio sign on 16th and will generate buying in Copper, Sugar, Jaggery and Gold. Hindustan Copper, Vedanta, Renuka Sugar and EID Parry are likely to be beneficial companies. Mercury will enter Capricorn sign and conjoin with Sun, Venus & Ketu on 27th. Presence of this combination of planets in Capricorn sign, ruled by Saturn will maintain the Bullish tone of the market sentiments; however Cotton and Textiles stocks may see a dip. Software, IT and Telecom sector stocks (Infosys, Wipro & ITI) are likely to be in demand.
Thank you for becoming a Premium Member and also for the compliment. Don’t be anxious, but do give yourself an advantage by understanding what it means to have Uranus conjunct your natal Chiron at 0 Taurus in your Second House of finance, property, business and possessions. Essentially your lifelong pattern is to see what you can get away with, no matter if you are buying, selling or borrowing. Chiron is that side of you which is quite audacious and willing to tilt at windmills. You are always moving the goalposts, to coin another phrase, when it comes to money and were probably doing that as a child or teenager too. Experimenting and exploring to see what is possible – what is acceptable. When Uranus comes along in May, and again in early 2019, you will need to adjust and adapt your approach. In other words, the habits of a lifetime with finances will need to be examined very closely to see if your old angle is still going to work for you in unpredictable times. Figuring out a strategy is a very good idea. Rather than just reacting, try to put everything in front of you and see what tactics you can use. You’ll see a lot of astrologers online and in workshops now talking about this cycle, as we have not seen it since the Thirties. By 2019 you will be far more up on the game and will know how to play it. The best example I can give you is the Industrial Revolution. You either got on board with it and did very well, back in the 18th century, or you threw your clogs into the machinery and … your clogs got broken! Another example I can give you is the French Revolution and the peasant rebellion against taxes. Again, you either got on board with that and owned the new country – or you were wasting your time, hanging on to your poster of Marie Antoinette. It’s going to be that radical. What do you gain? Freedom. Freedom from X and freedom, thanks to Y. You actually won’t be able to fill in X and Y until Uranus has arrived and it is in the nature of this planet to be utterly unpredictable. Yet – you have the kind of chart where you can make just about anything work. You would do wonders with gardening, actually. I hope your little boy gets a good animal friend.
That was six years ago. Funnily enough, the author of this blog, David Haggith, recently posted an article titled I Bet My Blog on a 2018 Economic Collapse. Basically, he is going to throw sh*t at the wall until something finally sticks – then he’ll pontificate to everyone about how his prediction was correct. It is worth noting that he also predicted that 2016 would be the year of the economic apocalypse and that he was “fairly sure” that stocks would slump in January, 2017.
So take this time to go over your holdings and tally up how much you have in stocks and how much in bonds. If you're not sure of the asset make-up in some of your investments — which may be the case if you own funds that invest in a combination of stocks and bonds — plug the names or ticker symbols of your funds into Morningstar's Instant X-Ray tool, and you'll see how your portfolio overall is divvied up between stocks, bonds and cash.

Finally, sentiment. If the busboy just bought a new diesel VW with the money he made trading Apple? Keep an eye on things. There was a TV ad during the naz peak (1999?) for Schwab or whomever. FADE IN: Guy standing next to broken down car on the side of the road. Tow truck pulls up. Tow driver hooks him up and off they go. Inside the truck the passenger points to a big color picture of an island. He says “what’s that?” Tow driver says “that’s mine.” The passenger looks incredulous...”You own an island?” Tow driver smiles “well yea, I bought it with the money I made in the market…but, it’s not really just an island.” passenger bites...”Then what is it?” Driver replies…”it’s a country.”


In my last predictions, I said that Shakespeare’s bones would be analyzed to show he’s been poisoned. This has not happened. I also predicted that a kidnap attempt would be attempted on the pope. Wrong on that one I’m sorry to say. I got it right about the launch of new virtual reality games and augmented reality did take huge strides as predicted. You may remember I predicted that a giant squid would make the news. I felt a bit silly even suggesting this but giant squid have made the news and the Russians found something really weird under the ice! Maybe in 2018 she’ll have babies that will march on Washington!

You might be wondering if we’ve endured one too many ghost apparitions. To suggest that no less than Warren Buffett, whose net worth is north of $80.0 billion, expects the market to reverse its bullish course seems not just scary, it seems silly. But Warren Buffett’s predictions for 2018 call for at least a market correction—if not an outright crash.


If Trump comes to power, indeed its unfortunate for the whole White race globally (Abrahmic sects – Jews, Christians, Catholics, and Moslems — remember that Moslems are half White – half Black, from Abraham and his wife’s Black maid whom he used to raped secretly, but the blame (as usual) was put on this Black maid and her son Ismail, who later became leader of Revenge and started raping White women (throughout Middle East), here and there, wherever… their children came to be known as Ismaili or Muslims. It’s old story, but faults point to…
Anaconda, Memes, and Obama: In Obama's first year, he prevented another Great Depression, saved the US auto industry, and put us on track to cut the uninsured rate in half and triple the stock market. Trump gave himself a $15-million-a- year tax cut and defended neo-Nazis. See the difference? OCCUPY DEMOCRAT Matt Palumbo Obama: 30 percent growth during the most volatile market on record-100% of that 30 percent gain was merely retracing lost value from past declines. Trump:25 percent growth. Least volatile market in history. First time since the 1980s where we had 12 straight positive months of stock market gains. Record low unemployment, rising wages, rising labor force participation. All gains make new all time highs
This event demonstrated that share prices can fall dramatically even though no generally agreed upon definite cause has been found: a thorough search failed to detect any 'reasonable' development that might have accounted for the crash. (Note that such events are predicted to occur strictly by chance, although very rarely.) It seems also to be the case more generally that many price movements (beyond that which are predicted to occur 'randomly') are not occasioned by new information; a study of the fifty largest one-day share price movements in the United States in the post-war period seems to confirm this.[56]
So take this time to go over your holdings and tally up how much you have in stocks and how much in bonds. If you're not sure of the asset make-up in some of your investments — which may be the case if you own funds that invest in a combination of stocks and bonds — plug the names or ticker symbols of your funds into Morningstar's Instant X-Ray tool, and you'll see how your portfolio overall is divvied up between stocks, bonds and cash.
“The shift from active to passive asset management, and specifically the decline of active value investors, reduces the ability of the market to prevent and recover from large drawdowns,” Joyce Chang and Jan Loeys wrote in the Monday note. Actively managed accounts make up only about one-third of equity assets under management, with active single-name trading responsible for just 10 percent or so of trading volume, JPMorgan estimates.
I have felt for a long time that the UK will leave the E.U. though still have some close economic and legal connections. I also feel that France will eventually leave and what is left will be a group of countries led and dominated by Germany. I predict that the E.U. will still be a trading community for much of Europe including Turkey and will include the UK but it will be something closer to the Common Market that the British people voted to join back in the 70’s.
If you haven't been periodically rebalancing your portfolio, you may be invested more aggressively than you think. Someone who started out with a mix of 70% stocks and 30% bonds when this bull market began back in 2009 and simply re-invested all gains in whatever investment generated them, would have something close to a portfolio 90% stocks and 10% bonds today.
Perhaps the likeliest reason for the next stock market crash could be an escalating trade spat between the United States and China. After the U.S. initially placed tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods, China retaliated with tariffs of its own on an equal value of imported U.S. goods. Now the two sides are threatening to one-up the other with tariffs.
