Thanks Jessica!! My stepdad’s birthdate is September 3, 1931. And yes, I hear you regarding the seriousness of the epoch we are moving into and my chart’s potentially unpredictable relationship to that. I am wondering if it would be wisest to wait the next two years out and focus on my creativity and on earning rather than investing – but I’m also aware there will be amazing financial opportunities for those who are astute, rural property not far from the sea being chief among them. I dream of having a beautiful but affordable place for my son (September 7, 1999) and my extended family and friends to visit whenever they wish and for me to teach and create in. Love and blessings :)
In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Dutch pioneered several financial innovations that helped lay the foundations of the modern financial system. While the Italian city-states produced the first transferable government bonds, they did not develop the other ingredient necessary to produce a fully fledged capital market: the stock market. In the early 1600s the Dutch East India Company (VOC) became the first company in history to issue bonds and shares of stock to the general public. As Edward Stringham (2015) notes, "companies with transferable shares date back to classical Rome, but these were usually not enduring endeavors and no considerable secondary market existed (Neal, 1997, p. 61)." The Dutch East India Company (founded in the year of 1602) was also the first joint-stock company to get a fixed capital stock and as a result, continuous trade in company stock occurred on the Amsterdam Exchange. Soon thereafter, a lively trade in various derivatives, among which options and repos, emerged on the Amsterdam market. Dutch traders also pioneered short selling – a practice which was banned by the Dutch authorities as early as 1610. Amsterdam-based businessman Joseph de la Vega's Confusion de Confusiones (1688) was the earliest known book about stock trading and first book on the inner workings of the stock market (including the stock exchange).
Oui, c’est bien vrai, JR, 90 % des gestionnaires de fonds mutuels ne battent pas le marché, sauf que, nuance ! Buffett s’est cité lui-même en exemple pour dénoncer la prétendue efficience des marchés selon laquelle il aurait dû lui être impossible de cumuler du 20 % et plus de rendement composé annuel pendant 60 ans tout en battant systématiquement le marché.
Like my maverick 88 nice smooth action just a good basic shotty. Takes 3 inch loads I think that’s overkill though but hey if I come across some during a shortage it will work. Would like to get a 590 though but the 88 is sufficient as it will mostly pull guard duty in the house so it won’t see rough conditions. Grew sweet potatoes this year gonna have 30lbs or more come harvest time. My garden and fruit trees produce so much I don’t buy produce anymore just meats grains juices really. I don’t hunt but might this year got me a decent crossbow and the shotgun of course there is no rifle hunting around here. Have a buddy who used to be a butcher and hunts and processes all his own meat. I’m fond of back strap and sausage.
2) Au niveau fiscal, et ceci est très important, si vous transigez quotidiennement ou plusieurs fois par semaine et que le revenu annuel est important, Revenu Canada et Revenu Québec ne traiteront pas ces revenus comme des gains en capitaux mais bien comme un revenu pur et simple de travail puisqu’ils considèrent que vous exercez une activité de professionnel (et le « seuil » du nombre de transactions à partir duquel ils vous collent l’étiquette de « professionnel de l’investissement » est entièrement à leur discrétion !). Vous ne serez donc pas imposé à 25% (ou sur 50% des gains) mais bien sur tous les gains donc à votre taux marginal. Et le Fisc se fait un malin plaisir de revenir loin en arrière pour réclamer son dû (avec intérêts s’il y a lieu). Ceci est vrai pour les comptes de courtage ordinaires ou les CELI. Soyez donc très prudent dans vos déclarations de revenus si vous ne voulez pas avoir de mauvaises surprises quelques années plus tard. Évidemment, sachant ceci, si l’activité vous procure un revenu important, le taux d’imposition sera alors secondaire…
This also means that it is a mistake to think of investors as a bunch of clueless, greed-driven lemmings falling off a cliff during a market crash. For example, during the real estate boom of the mid-2000s people kept buying homes despite an abundance of media articles pointing out that the property market was swept in a mania. There was no question, even then, that the market was overheated. So why did people continue to buy homes?
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.
Here we will apply astrology, Biblical prophecy, numerical analysis, and the concepts of this Revelation 13 web site to economics. Could a worldwide economic crash and economic depression occur soon, from this economic recession, including a world stock market crash? In September 29 - October 8 2008 there was a major fall in the U.S. Stock Market that also affected European and other country's economies. I think the U.S. stock markets and financial markets, the New York Stock Exchange, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and the Nasdaq stock markets could see instability and problems. Also volcano eruptions around the world including in Indonesia could affect world travel by shutting down airports.
A stock is an ownership interest in a business. Publicly traded companies raise cash by going to the primary market, where shares are first sold to investors in an “initial public offering,” or IPO. What most of us consider the stock market is actually the secondary market. This is where previously issued shares are traded among market participants. Trading venues include the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations System (NASDAQ) among others. Bidding among buyers and sellers sets prices.

I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Free from Broke site titled Playing Dominion vs. Playing the Market. Juicy Excerpt: It’s possible to finish a game of Dominion in 30 minutes. Newcomers to the game make dumb mistakes the first time they play. They learn from those mistakes. They get better. Investing is a game that extends over 60 years of your life (if you start at age 25 and die at age 85). By the time we figure the game out, it’s…
Les marchés émergents ont des espérances de rendement plus élevés (avec un risque élevé), donc ceux qui peuvent tolérer ce risque pourrait bénéficier du rendement supplémentaire surtout si on se considère un investisseur à long terme (on a généralement besoin d’un horizon de placement plus long pour profiter pleinement des marchés émergents). Aussi, cela rajoute un effet de diversification.
Stuff to think about before you make your attempt at fame in the world of market callers? There is some deflationary stuff going on. Not Armageddon mind you, but, a barrel of Texas that was flying out the door in 2012 for $125 can be had for $46 today. Food is on the cheap so bad the supermarkets are begging for some price inflation so they can report revenue increases to their grumpy shareholders. I almost forgot, Maine blueberries are getting crushed with wholesale off by over 40%. Not enough buy pressure there.

I recently posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Digerati Life blog. It's called The No-Stock Portfolio: Zero Stocks for 15 Years and Doing Fine! Juicy Excerpt: What if you were to take stock price into consideration when setting your stock allocation with the understanding that it might take as long as 10 years to see a payoff for doing so? In that case, you would be almost certain to see the payoff. Long-term timing always works. At least it always has (in the past). It’s not hard to…
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.
(12) Asteroid hitting earth. There is a possibility of an asteroid or comet hitting earth within a few years, since it is described in Revelation 8. This is why an asteroid defense is needed, which NASA could build if they were funded to do so. These King James Bible Code matrices indicate there could be an asteroid ocean hit in 2018-2019, the asteroid breaking up into 7 pieces in the atmosphere as it hits, so 7 impacts, and a giant tidal wave resulting that floods coastal cities. This could be the "seven thunders" of Revelation 10:3:
I will consider here three diseases that are a threat to mankind: AIDS, Ebola , and Influenza. The virus that causes AIDS, HIV, was discovered in 1983, so we will associate AIDS with the number 83. The galaxy M83 is in the constellation Hydra, which was a multi-headed serpent in mythology that kept growing a new head, each time a head was cut off. This sounds like AIDS, which keeps mutating to allow it to get around any treatment or vaccine. The Hydra was defeated by Hercules, by his nephew Iolaus burning each of the mortal heads as Hercules cut them off, and burying the immortal head under a stone. I wonder if this mythology story could somehow be a clue on how to treat AIDS? Note that the AIDS virus has 9213=111x83 bits of genetic information, so again we see the number 83 again.
En effet c’est impressionnant, et c’est un autre regret, qui est en partie dû à mon écoute des conseils financiers: j’ai trop misé sur les obligations / dépôts à terme dans mes comptes enregistrés, alors que si j’avais plutôt utilisé mes comptes REER et CELI (surtout CELI), ils auraient gagné en « espace » .. ainsi rendu à la retraite, au moment où ça fait du sens d’avoir des obligations, tu as beaucoup d’espace pour les mettre dans le CELI, à l’abri total de l’impôt.
We can see that Mercury dashas do not generally correlate with higher prices and fall well below the +6%/year historical norm for stocks. The best performing period occurred during Jupiter-Mercury but even there, Mercury revealed its bearish tendencies since it marked the biggest crash in history. The overall positive price effect from 1985-1988 was largely the result of Jupiter's overriding influence. It is perhaps no coincidence that the greatest bull market in history occurred during the Jupiter dasha from 1981 to 1997. The only other strongly positive period occurred during the Sun dasha. Here we can see the combined effect of two 11th house planets (gains!) fending off whatever bearish influences they encountered. Looking ahead to Mercury's next major dasha period which begins in 2016, it's hard to be optimistic about the stock market's performance.

The collective thoughts and will of all of us can become a remedy. Mystics say that earthquakes are the result of bad karma caused by mankind’s disrespect for Nature. As well as taking practical care of the environment we should see Nature as a conscious force and be inspired by her wonder. We can draw on the vibratory power of nature for our protection and wellbeing.
Why might a central bank underreact? It might not detect a shift in mood until it is too late, particularly if hard data across the economy look strong. It might not wish to be seen to be beholden to markets: willing to slash rates or take other action the moment stock indexes slip (particularly if the personnel making monetary-policy decisions are relatively new to their roles and keen to establish their independence). It might even welcome a bit of a droop in mood if it is concerned that growth has been too fast, unemployment too low, and inflation about to spike as a consequence.
Grace K. Morris, a professional astrologer and president of Astro Economics Inc., similarly boasted that during the Great Recession, she accurately predicted that the market would bottom out on March 9, 2009. Traditional economists such as Nouriel “Dr. Doom” Roubini, meanwhile, struggled to pinpoint a specific date when the market would turn; Goldman’s Abby Joseph Cohen insisted it would soon rally, long after 2008 had become a flaming dumpster fire. (Currently, Morris believes the market will continue to roar until a major crash occurs between August 2026 and March 2028; best of luck with that one.)
The answer was simple – don’t explain the meme, but categorise it. After a meme is approved on the market, it is split into one of three categories: penny stocks (low-end, unpopular memes), text-based memes, and image based memes. Of course, this system is not without its flaws – some memes could easily fit into multiple categories, but it seems to work.
I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Planting Money Seeds blog. It's called My Crush on Kathy and What It Means re Your Section 401(k) Account. Juicy Excerpt: I didn’t hear the words at the time. I have this amazing filter thing in my brain that doesn’t let in words that cut like a knife. I heard the words well enough to recall them to mind today, when they make me laugh. But for so long as those words caused more pain than I could handle — No words! It’s like a magic…
Prices began to decline in September and early October, but speculation continued, fueled in many cases by individuals who had borrowed money to buy shares—a practice that could be sustained only as long as stock prices continued rising. On October 18 the market went into a free fall, and the wild rush to buy stocks gave way to an equally wild rush to sell. The first day of real panic, October 24, is known as Black Thursday; on that day a record 12.9 million shares were traded as investors rushed to salvage their losses. Still, the Dow average closed down only six points after a number of major banks and investment companies bought up great blocks of stock in a successful effort to stem the panic that day. Their attempts, however, ultimately failed to shore up the market.
Though the Trump administration has looked to tariffs to help balance out a huge trade deficit with China, these added costs on aluminum, steel, and potentially other Chinese goods, could come back to haunt businesses and U.S. consumers. As material costs rise as a result of tariffs, businesses have little choice but to pass along these higher costs to consumers. That will likely result in less consumption, and an eventual pullback in spending from businesses, which may lead to a borderline recession.
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…
Although there were a lot of clear signs that Josefina Vazquez Mota was going to wing the Mexican 2012 presidential elections, Enrique Pena Nieto, won in the most mysterious and unexpected ways. Under his 2 year presidency, there were 43 students shot to death by the order of a Drug Lord who was also mayor of a town Guerrero and it became a national pressure point or “the drop that spilled the water” when it comes to exposing the unexisting thing line of drug lords and State leaders. Some of Mexico’s long time sleeping volcanoes have shown recently some abnormal activity. The world’s and Mexico’s most wanted drug lord was caught out of thin air. What is all this scrambling into?
You would need to be aware of the strain on your nervous system as Uranus opposes your patterns at 0, 1, 2, 3 in the finance signs. I am sure you could dance in the storm that is coming, and do well – but at a certain point you have to realise that Uranus (the electrifying atmosphere) opposite your natal placements is associated with tremendous stress. Things will be nuts out there, well into early 2019, so you need to make absolutely sure that the price you are paying for that particular line of work, is worth what it will cost you in tension. Uranus oppositions place big demands on us.
Most of the professional investors are signaling signs of a market collapse in next two three years before 2020 starts. Market crash in 2000 was sparked by technology sector failure and 2008 crash was sparked by real estate and property. But today almost all sectors have been overvalued. Many sectors listed at S&P 500 are trading at the highest level seen in last ten years.
