Replica of an East Indiaman of the Dutch East India Company/United East Indies Company (VOC). The Dutch East India Company was the first corporation to be ever actually listed on an official stock exchange. In 1611, the world's first stock exchange (in its modern sense) was launched by the VOC in Amsterdam. In Robert Shiller's own words, the VOC was "the first real important stock" in the history of finance.[21]
Stacey, the difference between life after May, and life before May, is so extreme it’s almost like the difference between Ronald Reagan and everyone who came before him. It is also going to move very, very rapidly. Investing for your son is smart, of course, but you do need to look at his Taurus and Scorpio factors, if he has them. Jupiter (growth, abundance, good fortune, solutions) in Scorpio in the Eighth House of your chart this year is a huge source of either protection or profit. You have Mars at 25 Scorpio so when Jupiter hits 25 you will have an opportunity not possible in 12 years to take action on the money, the cryptocurrency, the house, apartment, business or charity. On 19th October, for example, the Sun at 25 Libra aspects Jupiter at 25 Scorpio, right on your Mars. However – and this is a big ‘however for you – you were also born with Uranus at 0 Scorpio and Uranus at 0 Taurus will oppose this, May and June 2018. This period will be a very wild ride, and you will need to educate yourself rapidly about what is going on out there and how to adapt and adjust. If you are curious about Uranus, Taurus, Scorpio, the Second House and Eighth House please hit Search. But in general, expect the unexpected. You can’t really make savvy choices about this new financial era until you get past Uranus entering Taurus – for the first time in most people’s adult lives. This is going to be as big as President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal in 1934. As big as Europe devaluing its currency. The astrology and history tell us that! Yet – eventually – we’re looking at one world crypto currency – and a more level playing field for the so-called Third World.
"This is a most fascinating book about an intriguing but also a controversial topic. It is written by an expert in a very straightforward style and is illustrated by many clear figures. Why Stock Markets Crash will surely raise scientific interest in the emerging new field of econophysics."―Cars H. Hommes, Director of the Center for Nonlinear Dynamics in Economics and Finance, University of Amsterdam
By the end of October, stock markets in Hong Kong had fallen 45.5%, Australia 41.8%, Spain 31%, the United Kingdom 26.4%, the United States 22.68%, and Canada 22.5%. Black Monday itself was the largest one-day percentage decline in stock market history – the Dow Jones fell by 22.6% in a day. The names "Black Monday" and "Black Tuesday" are also used for October 28–29, 1929, which followed Terrible Thursday—the starting day of the stock market crash in 1929.
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.
Hello! I am a psychic and I have a prediction to add! Tilikum, the orca whale from Sea World Florida, will kill her 3rd victim this Summer! If you’re going to SeaWorld this summer, be sure to have your cameras ready and get a front row seat for the Shamu Stadium! From what I gather, it won’t be extremely gory or gruesome, but if you don’t think you can handle seeing Tilikum’s “special performance”, you might want to go to some of the other Florida theme parks and skip SeaWorld for now…. I’m trying to get the warning out there as I keep seeing those SeaWorld commercials about how happy and healthy the whales are. In fact, they’re so happy with the trainers, they could just eat them up! You’ve all been warned…
Editor’s Note: The following article has been contributed by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper web site. As always, Daisy has put together an excellent primer detailing the conditions we currently face, potential outcomes, and strategies you can implement to prepare for an inevitable crash in not just stocks markets, but the way of life we have come to know in America. 
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.
October as a whole is really important. On Wednesday 24th October 2018 Juno enters Taurus. She is Jupiter’s wife and most astrologers ignore her but she is a symbol of commitment and opportunity. The same day, we find a Full Moon with the Sun at 1 Scorpio opposite the Moon at 1 Taurus. On Friday 26th October, Venus (the ruler of Taurus) is conjunct the Sun at 3 Scorpio. Mercury is hovering around 24 Scorpio which fits that Tokyo/New York/London/Ireland pattern.
3. They also found, to the surprise of some readers I’m sure, “that some widely cited economic variables displayed an unexpected, counterintuitive correlation with future returns. The ratio of govern- ment debt to GDP is an example: Although its R2makes it seem a better performer than others, the reason is actually opposite to what one would expect—the government debt/GDP ratio has had a positive relationship with the long-term realized return. In other words, higher government debt levels have been associated with higher future stock returns, at least in the United States since 1926″.
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.
Many of the above predictions are pretty gloomy but I feel that there will be a simultaneous growth in spirituality for the people of the world that will now start to lead us into a Golden Age. Conflict and hardship plus growing environmental problems will bring good people together and ignite a desire to seek the true purpose of human life. I feel that 2017 and 2018 are the years when miraculous spiritual things will be revealed to the world as it finally breaks the yoke of the Age of Materialism. At first just a few will witness the revelation of the divine but eventually, people will experience the world in a completely new way and directly know higher consciousness.
Finally, once you feel you've got a portfolio that will provide sufficient gains during rising markets and enough protection during routs so you'll be able to hang on until the eventual recovery, stick with that mix, except for occasional rebalancing, regardless of what's going on in the market. The idea is to make sure your portfolio doesn't become too aggressive during market upswings or too conservative when stocks take a hit.
In July 2001, Tesco became involved in internet groceries retailing in the USA when it obtained a 35% stake in GroceryWorks.[30] In 2002, Tesco purchased 13 HIT hypermarkets in Poland. It also made a major move into the UK's convenience shop market with its purchase of T & S Stores, owner of 870 convenience shops in the One Stop, Dillons and Day & Nite chains in the UK.[31]
Dans un rapport publié le 1er octobre 2010, la SEC indiqua, sans la nommer, qu'une firme était à l'origine d'un ordre de vente, via un système de trading haute fréquence, de 75 000 contrats futures E-Mini S&P 500, déclencheur du Flash Crash. Seul le hedge fund Waddell & Reed correspondait à la description faite dans le rapport. La firme Waddell & Reed reconnaissait être impliquée dans cet incident, comme 250 autres sociétés. Quelques jours après le crash, les rumeurs désignaient déjà Waddell & Reed ; il s'agit d'une société d'asset management ayant ses locaux à Overland Park dans le Kansas.

It’s hard prepping on limited funds especially with young children, believe me I know. Every two weeks when I get groceries I take an extra $20 and get basic staples to store in my emergency pantry. It doesn’t seem like much but it adds up especially If you use it a Aldis, shop n save, etc. Then when I have extra cash I use it on the other important things besides food. Just keep going your doin a lot better than most. Your kids will thank you for it. 🙂
Why do I say that Putin is the Antichrist of Book of Revelation chapter 13? There are many reasons why I am sure that Putin is the evil one who will bring about World War 3, that I discuss on the pages on Putin and Russia. The biggest reason is that when Putin first rose to power there was an unusual Astrology pattern that also relates to a Nostradamus prophecy about the Antichrist. Let us consider the Grand Cross Astrology pattern of August 1999. On August 18, 1999, there was an unusual alignment of planets in a Grand Cross shape, possibly the most unusual Astrological alignment seen in the last two thousand years. And one week before, on August 11, 1999, there was a solar eclipse seen over Europe. The Grand Cross, which is one of the most amazing astrological alignments ever seen in history, consisted of: the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the sign of Leo, Mars and the Moon in Scorpio with Pluto close by in Sagittarius, Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus, and Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius. The cross is a bent cross, relating it to the Antichrist, as the true cross relates to Christ.

As Comet Hale-Bopp peaked in April 1997, there was a fire in April 1997 in the Cathedral holding the Shroud of Turin in Italy, but the Shroud fortunately escaped damage, due to the bravery of a Turin firefighter. The Shroud of Turin is believed by many Christians to be the burial cloth of Christ. Recent carbon tests seemed to indicate it was a fake, but those tests are considered by many people to be invalid because: (1) there was bacteria growth on the cloth that invalidated the measurements (2) a previous fire in 1532 resulted in carbon deposits on the cloth that invalidated the recent carbon tests. So, the cloth could be the real burial cloth of Christ, bearing his image on it. What is interesting, is that at the time of the previous shroud fire, there were three bright comets in 3 years, in 1531-1533. And at that time, there was the greatest schism in the history of Christianity, with the Protestant Reformation of Martin Luther. The shroud was slightly damaged, but repaired, then. Maybe the three comets of 1531-1533 represented the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. So, that is why I would not be surpised if there is a third bright comet in 2018 - 2019, but this time the comets could represent the Unholy Trinity of Revelation: satan, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet.

I recently posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Money & Such blog entitled Stocks Are a Lot Less Risky Than You Think. Juicy Excerpt: The price volatility of stocks is an illusion. It’s not real. Change how you react to it and it goes away. Stop taking volatility seriously and it goes “Poof!”. There were several good comments posted in response to the blog entry. Juicy Excerpt: I think you provide a unique approach to the topic. It sounds to me very similar to the idea of…
Many astrologers like to characterize their method of reading a horoscope as "holistic", in an effort to escape criticisms from mechanistically-oriented skeptics. I prefer to think of chart analysis in terms of Boolean logic, where multiple factors must be present for a particular situation to occur. For example, we cannot expect stocks to inevitably rise when benefic Jupiter conjoins the natal Sun of the chart we are working with. Such a favourable pattern may be thought of as a necessary, but not sufficient condition for price increases. There must also be an absence of negative factors hitting the key chart points. These would include few close aspects from malefic planets, no planets transiting malefic houses (6th, 8th, 12th) and so on. Given the large number of variables every chart contains, there will be several significant operating planetary contacts and influences at any given time. These must all be evaluated for their relative effects of prices according to the principles of Boolean analysis. If we are trying to assess if the conditions are in place for a bull market, for example, we could construct a table that more clearly reflects this logical process.
Note that Russian President Putin began his rise to power in Russia in August 1999, at the time of the Grand Cross Astrology pattern and solar eclipse over Europe, becoming Prime Minister for Yeltsin (second-in-command in Russia) on August 9, 1999. On December 31, 1999, Putin became Russia's President. And Mars is war - war will occur when Putin is in power. "King of the Mongols" - that Putin will be a tyrant rising to power in Asia.
(8) The Southern Cross effect. In 1987 there was a Supernova in the Southern Hemisphere sky, "igniting" astrologically the positive influence of a nearby Constellation, the Southern Cross. This began a positive sequence of events in the Southern Hemisphere, with Democracy coming to South America after that, and positive change to South Africa. I think this trend will generally continue through year 2018 - 2019, because the Southern Hemisphere supernova is brightening again because of a collision of gases in space, it will be like a new Star of Bethlehem. Hope will come from the Southern Hemisphere. This is related to the 1987 Southern Hemisphere Supernova, which resulted in a wave of positive change in the Southern Hemisphere, with Democracy coming to South America and positive change in South Africa.
Mother Earth is now in greatest distress because of the exploding population explosion which is greatly ignored by the governments. As you are aware we all have our free wills. Some countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Palestine have all run out of space and many countries are encroaching on valuable farm lands. Added to this is enchroaching and expanding deserts and valuable coastal lands overtaken by encroaching sea waters because of global warming. Added to this is massive droughts and floods. You, Dear Sir, spend a lot of time in India and are very familiar with Karma, nemisis, faith, yogamaya, samskara – Every action has an equal reaction. Now is Payback time. As Ex- President Senior Bush said – ” you ( earth people) trash the earth, the earth will trash you back”. You all are going to be trashed severally. This is a grim warning.
L'attention s'est ensuite portée sur la vente de contrats futures sur l'indice Standard & Poor's 500 de type futures E-mini S&P 500 et sur un moment précis de deux minutes où un paquet de ces contrats portant sur une valeur de 16 milliards de dollars avaient été vendus. La vente totale de futures E-mini S&P 500 sur la journée du 6 mai 2010 s'élevait à 9 milliards pour la banque Citigroup, suggérant que l'origine de cet incident n'impliquait pas cette banque ; le « Chicago Mercantile Exchange » qui gère la cotation des contrats futures E-mini S&P 500 ne trouva aucune faille dans ses systèmes.
Charles Manson has been in the news in recent years, he is an alleged mass murderer in prison for life in California. This may be significant in our discussion of the Antichrist Putin. Note that the Antichrist in Revelation 13 has the number of man, and 666. Man-son. And note that the Manson murders of Sharon Tate and others in LA California was on August 9, 1969. That was exactly 30 years before the Antichrist Putin became Prime Minister of Russia on August 9 1999, at the time of an August 11 1999 solar eclipse over Europe, and the August 18 1999 Grand Cross Astrology pattern of planets in a cross shape. And actress Sharon Tate who was murdered was the wife of Roman Polanski, who in 1968 had made a movie called "Rosemary's Baby" about the child of Satan. Also note that Charles Manson's cult lived in Death Valley in California, and Charles Manson included Book of Revelation prophecies in twisted form in his twisted philosophy.
Can you feel the thickness of dread in the air ? The impending of something very large going to happened ? It’s choking me , it’s so terrible and I’ve been feeling it for along time coming…Survival is something we’d all better learn about, even my dreams are doing this crazy thing of trying to survive . I don’t know what it is ! But I’ve always felt things that mean more than myself, and like you I don’t always understand them , but this I know . It’s coming !
The Oracle of the I Ching says “the best way to combat evil is perseverance in the good”. This can work in our own lives and has an energetic effect on reality itself. Collectively, we should look at horrible people like Kim Jong-un, the terrorist losers, the greedy business people and the perverted priests and be inspired to do the absolute opposite. When we see the disgusting things they do, we should go out into the world and do acts of kindness. We don’t have to spend money for we can create great energy by actively being kind and compassionate in our daily lives. This does good of course, but on an energetic level consciously doing acts of kindness is tremendously powerful and can change the world. We forget our latent powers in this time of Kali Yuga but every one of us has the powers of the Sathya Yuga – the Golden Age – within us.
Unfortunately, the Fed is fallible, just like stock market investors. If inflation -- i.e., the rising price of goods and services -- begins to heat up, the nation’s central bank could choose to get considerably more hawkish with its monetary policy. Or, in plainer English, it could get more aggressive with hiking its benchmark short-term interest rate between banks. Should that happen, interest rates for variable rate loans and mortgages would be expected to rise. This, in turn, could put the brakes on economic growth, as well as increase delinquency rates tied to variable rate loans.

Venus will enter its exalted sign Pisces on 2nd and Mercury will enter its debilitated sign Pisces on 3rd. This amazing planetary position will prompt the Bulls to buy more. Jupiter will move retrograde in Libra sign from 9th March onwards. This is Bullish sign as far as Bullions are concerned. The stocks of Gold sector companies (PC Jewellers, MMTC, TBZ) are likely to see upsurge in demand. Perfumery companies like S H Kelkar & Company, FMCG companies e.g. Marico, Textile sector companies (Nitin spinners, Raymond & Ambika Mills) will also show positive signs. The aspect of Mars on retrograde Mercury from 23rd will induce buying feelings amongst the investors to dabble in the stocks of Banks, Insurance, FMCG and Sugar sector companies. Last week of March will be ruled by the Bulls.
