On Black Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 38.33 points to 260, a drop of 12.8%. The deluge of selling overwhelmed the ticker tape system that normally gave investors the current prices of their shares. Telephone lines and telegraphs were clogged and were unable to cope. This information vacuum only led to more fear and panic. The technology of the New Era, previously much celebrated by investors, now served to deepen their suffering.
What could change the mood? An unexpected bank failure might. Or a spike in the price of oil. Or butterfly wings. Lots of things conceivably could, and a dramatic drop in stock prices is certainly among them. For a drop to have that effect, however, would require some extenuating circumstances. A folk-wisdom sense that the economy was “due” for a downturn might contribute. Or another random piece of bad news. But critical to a broader shift in mood would be the notion, lingering across markets and the public as a whole, that the government or the central bank might not quite be prepared to swing into mood-elevating activity. It’s like a trust exercise: you might lean a bit just to see if a friend is prepared to catch you, but not so much that you cannot recover, then a bit more, then maybe you start to worry that actually the friend seems frankly lackadaisical in his reaction, and then oof, over you go.

Because they’ve got the frackers sitting on them. Every time oil gets back to $50 or $60, the frackers start cranking up again, and then they get excess supply. The Saudi princes are saying we’ll never see $100 oil again, and I agree — or at least not for a very, very long time. I see oil at pretty much between $20 and $60 for decades. And we won’t see natural gas at $14 again — because of fracking.
Possibly the Antichrist was elected as Russian President Putin in the spring of 2000. See the Russia section for a discussion of this and some interesting facts on President Vladimir Putin. Also indicating Putin is the Antichrist: Putin visited Rome on November 4 2003, on the day there was the largest solar eruption from the sun in history. And November 8 2003, during a lunar eclipse, there was a hexagon astrology pattern (6 sides, as in 666) that I relate to the Antichrist Putin, also on the Putin page.
JPMorgan’s Marko Kolanovic has previously concluded that the big shift away from actively managed investing -- through the rise of index funds, exchange-traded funds and quantitative-based trading strategies -- has escalated the danger of market disruptions. He and his colleagues wrote in a separate note Monday of the potential for a future “Great Liquidity Crisis.”

I recently wrote a Guest Blog Entry for the Money and Such blog entitled Why Long-Term Timing Works Even Though Short-Term Timing Doesn't. Juicy Excerpt: It turns out that those studies were misinterpreted. I mentioned that there are hundreds of studies showing that timing doesn’t work. Do you know how many of those studies examine whether long-term timing works or not? The answer is -- not one of them. All of the studies showing that timing doesn’t work examine short-term timing; they…


I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Sustainable Personal Finance blog titled Are Investing Experts Ethical? Juicy Excerpt: By the standards that apply in most other fields of life endeavor, the investing advice field is frighteningly corrupt. I worked for several years as a tax lobbyist (hey, we all have a past!). So it takes something special in the department of ethical lapses to shock me. The investing advice field is something truly special in this…

The FTSE was ‘born’ with Psyche at 0 Capricorn, the sign which rules big business and government. She also has Pluto at 1 Scorpio. As soon as Uranus moves to  Taurus for the first time in most people’s lives, he will trine Psyche and oppose Pluto. That is a massive moment for the FTSE. In fact it’s historic. It’s confronting and it will change the balance of power for some time to come, as Uranus will return to this position after the initial May 2018 hit.
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.
Thanks to the Fed’s ZIRP, public pension funds cannot get safe 5% returns as they did in the past. Thus, public pension funds are being lured into investing in the stock market by the big financial firms. The stock market may very well crash soon, which means that millions of retired people are going to see their benefits being cut in the coming years.
Even odder than the existence of the Astrologers Fund is its ability to attract the interest of nonlunatics. A few years ago, Fox News’ Neil Cavuto told Weingarten on the air that he was “one of the best stockpickers I know.” Post-symposium, at the Princeton Club, Weingarten and I are joined at a table by a buttoned-down crew. One of them is an analyst for a small investment bank; another says he runs his own family office. Everyone has some kind of relationship with Weingarten, from the cordial to the professional, though nobody seems to understand how financial astrology works. “Tell me the time, don’t build me a clock!” says Paul Feeney, a corporate headhunter, repeatedly.

The other manifestation of Pluto going over the first house is the exposure of corruption, scandals, abuse of power and scams that could hamper investment in the market out of fear. We’ve started seeing this with the most recent news of the ex-head of NASDAQ taking rich investors for an estimated 50 billion dollars. Pluto will uncover more of this sort of thing, it may or may not lead to another crash, but it will definitely transform the way the markets are ultimately allowed to do business.
I believe it would be a very good time to start discussing near future in Europe and middle East as the situation is boiling over. Can anybody please share their predictions on refugee crisis, how will it develop and leave impact across the Europe? How will the Russia’s war with ISIL end? What will be the impact on America and China? I think we should start sharing more here and with people around us so to spread the awareness as what we see unraveling before our eyes will not end well. I have had some strong predictions of my relatives deaths and other events in the past, and since the massive influx of Syrian refugees started over a month ago, I have had the strongest “gut feeling” (that is present physically) and even lost a lot of weight. Please, if anyone can see clearer in to this, share your visions! Thank You!
En plus, les premiers $5,000 sont exempts de frais de gestion et on peut même avoir un autre $10,000 exempts de frais de gestion si on se fait parrainer (le parrain profite de la même chose de son côté). Je pense que ces frais de gestion ne concernent que les 0.5% de Wealthsimple et il faut quand même payer les ~0.2% de frais de gestion des FNB mais c’est toujours ça de gagné.

First, take a look at where you now stand, by which I mean make sure you really know how your money is currently invested. The single most important thing you want to confirm is your asset allocation, or the percentage of your holdings that are invested in stocks vs. bonds. That will determine how your portfolio holds up if the market takes a major dive.
“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.”
À 14 h 32, dans un contexte de grande volatilité, fut envoyé sur le marché un ordre de vente de 75 000 E-Mini (en) à échéance juin 2010 d'une valeur approximative de 4,1 milliards de dollars pour couvrir une position longue équivalente. Cet ordre fut adressé automatiquement via un programme de trading algorithmique. Cet ordre avait été configuré afin d'obtenir un taux d'exécution de 9 % du volume d'échange calculé par rapport à la dernière minute, sans apporter d'attention au prix ou à l'heure d'exécution. Cet ordre de vente automatisé créa la plus forte baisse du cours du contrat E-Mini depuis le début de l'année 2010. Seuls deux échanges d'une telle taille avaient été exécutés sur les 12 derniers mois et par la même société de trading. La dernière vente de cette taille avait été opérée via une combinaison d'ordres manuels et de plusieurs ordres automatisés prenant en compte le prix, l'heure et le volume ; l'exécution de cet ordre avait pris plus de cinq heures. Le 6 mai 2010, dans un marché nerveux, le choix de vendre 75 000 contrats en ne prenant en compte que le volume (sans tenir compte du prix et de l'heure) devait occuper seulement 20 minutes.
Take your money out of the bank ASAP.  If you still keep your money in the bank, go there and remove as much as you can while leaving in enough to pay your bills. Although it wasn’t a market collapse in Greece recently, the banks did close and limit ATM withdrawals.  People went for quite some time without being able to access their money, but were able to have a sense of normalcy by transferring money online to pay bills or using their debit cards to make purchases.  Get your cash out. You don’t want to be at the mercy of the banks.
I recently wrote a post on my blog, Investor Tuition - Education - Information -Opinion about this very subject. I am a great believer in the concept that if you start referring to a boom, then you are 100% guaranteed to have a bust follow it. The one and only immutable law of investment (for me anyway) is “every boom will be followed by a bust and every bust will be followed by a boom”. (the circle of life!)

À 13 heures, l'euro commença à décliner face au dollar et au yen. Le marché était baissier et la volatilité s'accentua sur certains titres financiers. Le nombre d'échanges augmenta au-delà de la moyenne. À 14 h 30, l'indice VIX mesurant la volatilité sur l'indice S&P 500 augmenta de 22,5 % par rapport au cours d'ouverture. Le rendement des obligations d'État américaines à 10 ans diminua, reflétant la volonté des investisseurs de se réfugier vers des valeurs sûres. Le Dow Jones était avant le flash crash en baisse de 2,5 %. Sur les marchés électroniques, les ordres d'achats de contrats futures E-Mini S&P 500 (en) ainsi que de l'ETF S&P 500 SPDR (en), les deux dérivés sur indices les plus échangés, sont passés respectivement de 6 milliards à 2,65 milliards de dollars (soit une baisse de 55 %) et de 275 millions à 220 millions de dollars (soit une baisse de 20 %). De nombreux autres titres de sociétés subirent également une baisse de la liquidité.
Generally, the prophecies discussed on this site may be changeable, if people will understand and listen to them and take appropriate action, such as building an asteroid defense. This may be a test for the human race: if people will understand that the disasters described in Revelation are occurring, then it may be possible to change the future and avoid these disasters.
Set forth below are eight Guest Blog Entries discussing various aspects of the Valuation-Informed Indexing investing strategy and on the Passion Saving money management strategy. 1) The Future of Investing, at the Get Rich Slowly forum (this is actually a thread-starter at a discussion board rather than a Guest Blog Entry -- I put it forward in this form at the request of J.D. Roth, the owner of both the blog and the forum). 2) Why Buy-and-Hold Investing Can Never Work (this is actually a…
Bref. Jai effectivement un compte avec questdrade et jai commence a acheter quelques FNB. Mais je dois avertir que jai lu des histoires sur questrade comme quoi il est très difficile de sortir son argent plus tard et aussi par rapport aux achats en argent US. on dit que si on ne fait pas la conversion soi même, on se retrouve a payer des intérêts comme si ils faisaient un prêt dans le compte en US.
I recently wrote a Guest Blog Entry for the Money and Such blog entitled We're All Better Off As a Result of the Stock Crash. Juicy Excerpt: If you have one-third less in your portfolio today than you had pre-crash, you have a better chance of meeting your retirement goal in 10 years than you possessed pre-crash. Juicy Excerpt #2: We need to assure people to persuade them to stay invested in stocks. But we cannot assure them without letting them know how important valuations are to…
Think back too about how you handled past downturns or, for that matter, how you reacted when stocks began to dip and dive. You may not be able to nail it exactly, but you want to come as close as you can to a blend of stocks and bonds that you'll be okay holding in a variety of market conditions, and then make whatever adjustments are necessary to get you to that mix.
En janvier 2016, une analyse détaillée de l’ensemble des données du Flash Crash, milliseconde par milliseconde, concluait qu’il « est très peu probable que les opérations de spoofing de Sarao ait pu provoquer le Flash Crash, ou même que le Flash Crash ait été une conséquence prévisible de ses activités de spoofing ». Il se peut que Sarao n’ait fait que profiter d’un phénomène dont il n’était pas responsable18. Ce qui ne modifierait pas son statut juridique : responsable ou non, il restait accusé de procédés illégaux14,19.
A civil war over the election results? I can certainly see it. The endless efforts by certain governors and state legislators to manipulate voting laws and procedures for partisan advantage are part of the problem. The nation is more polarized than ever before into factions who have very dissimilar beliefs regarding what the actual facts are. The echo chambers of talk radio and cable television have much to do with why Americans are so severely divided. Political leaders including President Obama too often exploit situations instead of doing what’s right for America.

Ninth, Trump was already attacking the Fed when the growth rate was recently 4%. Just think about how he will behave in the 2020 election year, when growth likely will have fallen below 1% and job losses emerge. The temptation for Trump to “wag the dog” by manufacturing a foreign-policy crisis will be high, especially if the Democrats retake the House of Representatives this year.
