"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
It is well documented that prices tend to go up faster before a crash. This may seem counter-intuitive, but it makes sense in terms of “rational expectations.” For investors to remain invested in a market that is becoming more risky, prices have to rise faster in order to compensate for the growing probability of a crash. Otherwise, people would exit the market earlier and a bubble would never form.
Feb. 15 2012. 6.0 quake off the coast of Oregon, in the U.S.. This is a major concern, because a giant magnitude 8 quake (see this page) could occur underwater off the coast of the Pacific Northwest U.S., causing a giant tidal wave that could go miles inland in the U.S. - Oregon, Washington state, and Northern California, and also hit Japan. This 6.0 quake off Oregon could indicate a larger 8 or 9 quake could occur soon there, underwater off the coast on the Cascadia undersea fault line. 

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.
Other scientists disagree with this notion, and note that market crashes are indeed “special.” Professor Didier Sornette, for example, a physicist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, argued that a market crash is not simply a scaled-up version of a normal down day but a true outlier to market behavior. In fact, he claims that ahead of critical points the market starts giving off some clues. His work focuses on interpreting these clues and identify when a bubble may be forming and, crucially, when it ends.

The Online Investing AI blog has posted my Guest Blog Entry titled All Stock Price Drops Help You, All Stock Price Gains Hurt You. Juicy Excerpt: The mathematical realities are precisely the opposite of what I have described in the scenario set forth above. The first year, the one in which stock prices went down 30 percent, was the lucky one for investors. The second year, the one in which stock prices went up 30 percent, is the one which you should be cursing your bad luck. Price drops are…


In the absence of strong transit contacts to the particular first trade chart of a stock exchange or company, it is very hard indeed to discern where the market will go. In those conditions, astrology may fare no better than chance. But where close angular contacts are made between current planetary positions and those in the first trade chart, prices will follow set patterns as described by the established symbolism of the planet and angle involved. We will examine how this works in more detail below.
Weingarten doesn’t often discuss his bad predictions: for instance, the great stock market crash of 2006. Or the meteoric rise of a “robotic construction” company named International Hi-Tech Industries Inc., which paid him as a consultant, underwrote his website, and eventually fell to pennies a share before being delisted. (Weingarten: “Well, the guy was an asshole.”) Look a little deeper into the records of other astrologers, and they aren’t always pretty. When I call Hulbert, the guy who rates newsletters, he confirms that once in a while Crawford has performed really well. But overall? From 1989 to early 2016, Hulbert says, his record was “unremarkable.”
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]
During the mid- to late 1920s, the stock market in the United States underwent rapid expansion. It continued for the first six months following President Herbert Hoover’s inauguration in January 1929. The prices of stocks soared to fantastic heights in the great “Hoover bull market,” and the public, from banking and industrial magnates to chauffeurs and cooks, rushed to brokers to invest their surplus or their savings in securities, which they could sell at a profit. Billions of dollars were drawn from the banks into Wall Street for brokers’ loans to carry margin accounts. The spectacles of the South Sea Bubble and the Mississippi Bubble had returned. People sold their Liberty Bonds and mortgaged their homes to pour their cash into the stock market. In the midsummer of 1929 some 300 million shares of stock were being carried on margin, pushing the Dow Jones Industrial Average to a peak of 381 points in September. Any warnings of the precarious foundations of this financial house of cards went unheeded.
It is truly perplexing that an instance of such a great importance as what happened with Shri Devachandraji remained hidden unnoticed from Indian society of even the central and northern parts of India for over three centuries. Those divine verses spread over in 14 books of TV were gradually published starting from decade of 1980’s by present day disciples of one who is known by his title as Mahamati Prananath. These contain highest spiritual truths that in my opinion were not revealed by God via scriptures of all ancient faiths – but collate well with them.
If most or all of the favourable conditions are in place, then a bull market is more probable. Where a more mixed situation obtains, the market will only deliver mixed results. In addition to the above factors, I use a variety of techniques including current transit patterns such as planetary ingresses, the phases of the Moon, and mundane aspects. All can be used as signals to help discern the prevailing market direction. Since none of these are reliable indicators on their own, I typically use up to 20 different measurements to compile a sort of moving astrological index that reflects changing investor sentiment. In addition, I make use of the first trade charts of key stocks, stock indices, and stock exchanges.

Note the emphasis on every. Yes, there have been periods where the Fed raised rates and a recession didn’t ensue. Everyone knows the famous saying about the stock market having predicted nine of the past five recessions! That may be true, that rising rates don’t necessarily cause a recession. But as an investor, you must be aware that every major stock market decline occurred on the heels of a tightening phase by the Fed. More importantly, there have been no substantive Fed tightening phases that did not end with a stock market decline.


We have entered a time when global events appear to be accelerating significantly.  Earlier today, bombs were mailed to major political leaders all over the United States.  In the Middle East, it looks like Israel and Hamas could go to war at any moment.  And we continue to see a rise in major seismic events – including three very large earthquakes that just hit the Cascadia Subduction Zone.
A few nights ago I dreamed that I was in my house, at a bottom of a hill area. Some explosion happened and the hill gave way. The houses in front of me collapsed row by row and by the time it stopped 7 or 8 blocks of houses were gone. My house was perched on the edge and water was rising. I panicked to get my most valuable belongings out as there was still a threat to the house. I could smell the water and mud.

Bonjour Steve, je suis d’accord avec toi. Si on dit que 80% des gestionnaires ne réussissent pas à battre le marché, il reste 20% qui sont capable de le faire. Moi, je cherche ceux qui font partie du 20%, il existe encore. Je pense à quelques gestionnaires de fonds communs exceptionnels, comme ceux de Mawer, Matt Schmehl, gestionnaire chez Fidelity (il s’occupe du fonds Fidelity Special Situations qui a généré un rendement moyen annualisé net de 12,05% depuis 10 ans contre 1,16% de l’indice de référence même si les frais de gestion sont 2,26%) ainsi que l’équipe de gestionnaires d’EdgePoint.
Houses and apartments are ruled by Cancer and the Fourth House of ‘home’ so when the North Node moves into Cancer towards the end of this year we will see new emphasis on property prices around the world, through to 2019. The special child in your world is really shown by Leo and the Fifth House, and you have a strong Leo signature. The North Node has been going over Leo so old karma has been activated. It is very likely that you, your niece and the special child knew each other in a previous lifetime. Flux is okay, by the way. In fact it’s necessary. Astrology can help by alerting you so that you realise what is going on and you go with radically new ways to earn, own or owe.
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.

Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site: Rob, If these “goons” never existed, how do you think your life would have been different, other than the loss of mild entertainment? That’s like asking an oncologist how his life would have been different if cancer had never existed. In one sense, it would have been better. The oncologist devotes his human energies to defeating cancer, just as I devote my human energies to defeating the Get Rich Quick urge that animates the Buy-and-Hold strategy. So there is a sense in which the oncologist sees cancer as the enemy. But he doesn’t avoid cancer in the way that he might avoid some other enemies. He goes looking for people who have cancer to see if he can help them. He reads all that he can about new developments in the treatment of cancer. He wants to know everything about cancer so that he can do a better job eradicating it (because he loves people and cancer hurts people). So do I want to know everything about goonishness/Get Rich Quick/Buy-and-Hold thinking because I want to eradicate it (because goonishness/Get Rich Quick/Buy-and-Hold thinking hurts people and I love people). Does that help at all? I like you Goons as people, Anonymous. For all sorts of reasons. Because I learn from you, for one. But I believe strongly that, if you were thinking clearly, you would work hard to rein in your Goon inclinations. Because those Goon inclinations hurt you in very, very serious ways. You need to know how stock investing works. We all do. But you have made a decision never to listen to the 10 percent of the population that believes that Shiller’s research is legitimate research because those people say things that make you feel uncomfortable. I don’t apologize for making you feel uncomfortable. I think that there are circumstances in which we must live through a measure of discomfort to get to a better place and to experience lots of exciting, wonderful stuff. The words that I direct at you are aimed at helping you to find your way to that place or at helping others find their way to that place in the event that you elect not to go there and others elect to visit this site in the hopes of […]
Considering again Cassini going to Saturn: as for the planet Saturn, possibly Saturn represents "Satan"-- the Antichrist is said to be a Satanic imitation of Christ, actually the son of Satan. So the Cassini probe journey to Saturn actually may be the journey of mankind to "Satan". Also note that in Greek, where each letter is also a number, "Titan" totals 666, another indication of the Cassini landing on Titan being connected with the Antichrist. Note that Titan (representing the Antichrist?) revolves around Saturn/Satan.
My prediction dream: I have a recurring dream regards an old warship, which is floating on what looks like acid, the ship is decaying/rusting n looks severely fire damaged. There are many bodies around it. Although the ship is military I can see a news paper with UK worst ferry disaster floating on the water, there is no date, I also see fresh cut green grass floating in what looks like an industrial pond?
Experienced investors who are “sophisticated enough to focus on these numbers and act on them themselves” can benefit by making their own adjustments, Mr. Davis said. Tried-and true investments like balanced funds and target date funds (which become more conservative as a given date nears) can make basic adjustments for you. Advisers can do this as well.
I have posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Invest It Wisely site called The Biggest Unknown Risk of Stock Investing. Juicy Excerpt: My strong sense is that most investors have not thought through carefully what it means to stick with stocks for the long run. To try to stick with stocks for the long run and fail to do so is the worst of all possible worlds. The possibility of becoming a failed Buy-and-Hold investor is the biggest unknown risk of stock investing. Juicy Comment #1: I agree…
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.

Another super post and discussion thread at the Balance Junkie blog. This one is called History Only Rhymes. Juicy Excerpt: Now I know that neither the Potato investors nor the Valuation Informed Index investors would claim that history will repeat itself exactly. They’re just using it to determine investment probabilities. That’s how I use historical data too. But I also like to incorporate a few other variables, which others may or may not find useful, but have served me well so…
June 6, 2006. 6-6-06, 666 being the number of the Antichrist. Note that this was 40 years after 6-6-66 (June 6, 1966), 40 years being associated in the Bible with a period of testing. Note that AIDS was first announced on June 5, 1981, when it was first detected in five men in Los Angeles. So June 5 2006 was the 25th anniversary of AIDS, 1 day before 6-6-06. Could it be that AIDS is one form of the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, Death? And Putin the Antichrist hosted the G-8 summit of world industrial powers in Russia in July 2006.

The bigger risk is the $150 billion in tariffs Trump has threatened on Chinese imports and the potential retaliation from China. Trump also has hinted at tariffs on auto imports and threatened not to renew the NAFTA trade pact with Canada and Mexico. Those steps could raise consumer prices and crimp U.S. exports, curbing growth by more than a percentage point next year, Bostjancic says. .Of course, it’s highly unlikely all of these threats would be carried through, she says. Administration officials have suggested they’re merely negotiating ploys. Yet even an escalation in the standoffs that raises investor fears could help set off a downturn, Edgerton says.


I've written a Guest Blog Entry for the Stock Trend Investing blog titled Long-Term Trend Investing. Juicy Excerpt: There’s one big flaw to Buy-and-Hold, however. When stocks are overpriced, it can take a long, long time for investors to obtain the average long-term return of 6.5 percent real. The Buy-and-Hold advocates don’t like for investors to learn how long it can take for the average long-term return to apply. How does the idea of waiting 25 years to see a good return on your…

In a less extreme market—for example, one where the Warren Buffett Indicator is around 100 or less—the risks are easier to identify, count, and classify. But in a situation where this indicator is approaching 140%, it’s clear that we’re long past the realm of logic. The markets are ignoring all risks while the Dow keeps climbing. Yet, there is one major risk at the macro level that could slam open the doors for a crash.
Stock market crashes are usually caused by more than one factor. In fact, there are often two sets of reasons for a crash. One set of conditions creates the environment for the sell-off, and another set of factors triggers the beginning of the sell-off. Just because there is a market bubble, it doesn’t mean the market will crash. Usually something needs to occur to cause investors to begin selling and buyers to step away from the stock market.
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.”
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.

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.


Jai un peu peur par rapport au courtage en ligne rendu au moment de la retraite, si on a toutes nos économies dans des FNB par exemple… est ce que on peut tout simplement vendre le tout en une transaction et transférer ailleurs ou si vous faites simplement des retraits occasionnels en vendant peu a peu les parts. Car dans mon cas, avec questrade,( jutilise la stratégie de canadian couch potato entre autres) l achat de fnb est gratuit mais la vente est de 4.95 min(1 cents par action) et 9.95 max par transaction . Ce qui pourrait couter cher si on fait des retraits plusieurs fois dans l’année.
Moi-même, pour avoir déjà lu cet épisode dans la vie de Buffett, rapporté par Carol. J. Loomis dans Perles de sagesse, Valor éditions, je creuse maintenant la question de l’inefficience des marchés, de leur caractère complètement chaotique, avec Shiller dans la 3e édition de son Exubérance irrationnelle, 2016, chez de Boeck, et avec Le mythe de l’efficience des marchés, de Justin Fox, Valor éditions.

I have watched Dr Who since I was A child, this is the first series I have missed in all these years. I switched off after episode 2 as that was enough for me, now I choose an episode from either the BBC I player or Netflix to watch on a Sunday night, for as long as this Doctor and Chris Chidwell are involved I will not watch this programme nothing against Jodie Whittaker and her co-stars but the BBC have destroyed the programme.
Greed was the dominant factor. “We all think we will get out before the market crashes. Then inevitably the market does crash and people get trapped, like a deer in the headlight. By the time they muster the courage to do something, the market has fallen further and fear grips. One way out of this cycle is to have a firm view on quality and valuation of a business we are invested in,” said Basumallick.
Je me suis récemment lancé dans le courtage en ligne avec l’intention de ne pas me casser la tête mais je me retrouve bien embêté parce qu’il y a plusieurs FNB ; certains suivent le marché américain, d’autres suivent le marché canadien, certains doublent un certain marché, etc. Bref, je me demandais s,il existait une ressource qui fait état des différents FNB disponibles et de leurs caractéristiques. Je connais Vanguard mais quand je vais sur leur site internet, je me sens comme quand je lis un livre en cantonnais, c’est plutôt rébarbatif. Y aurait-il un blogueur ou un site internet qui vulgariserait les différentes caractéristiques des FNB?

The financial system in most western countries has undergone a remarkable transformation. One feature of this development is disintermediation. A portion of the funds involved in saving and financing, flows directly to the financial markets instead of being routed via the traditional bank lending and deposit operations. The general public interest in investing in the stock market, either directly or through mutual funds, has been an important component of this process.
The CAPE ratio (also known as Shiller P/E ratio) is a long term cyclically adjusted measure of equity valuations devised by the respected economist Robert Shiller. The CAPE ratio has been at historically high level for several years, although high valuations alone do not mean a crash is imminent. Whether US stock prices today are in a stock bubble or not is debatable. In general, bubbles do not necessarily imply a crash, unless there is a catalyst.
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.
Possibly these two elements named Ununpentium (115) and Ununtrium (113), that were created by Russian and American scientists, by colliding an isotope of Calcium with Americium, may represent the Two Witnesses of Revelation, and may indicate that they will appear soon on the world scene. So watch out for two mysterious prophets who may appear by 2018-2020. See this page for Bible Code matrices on the Two Witnesses which may indicate at least one of them is from the U.S..
I’m less concerned than our friends at the Fed. Businesses are rebelling in mass against Trump’s punitive tariffs on steel, aluminum, and lumber. Trump is still blind to his own economic idiocy as I write. Given the torrent of negative press on tariffs in recent weeks, I suspect that a member or two of his retinue will force him to see the light. They’ll force him sooner than later.
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?
In May 2005, Tesco announced a trial non-food only format near Manchester and Aberdeen,[86] and the first shop opened in October 2005. The shops offered all of Tesco's ranges except food in warehouse-style units in retail parks. Tesco introduced the format as only 20% of its customers had access to a Tesco Extra, and the company was restricted in how many of its superstores it could convert into Extras and how quickly it could do so. Large units for non-food retailing are much more readily available. The format was not Tesco's first non-food only venture in the UK. Until the late 1990s/early 2000s there were several non-food Tesco shops around the country including Scarborough and Yate. Although not in a warehouse-style format, the shops were located on high streets and shopping centres, and stocked similar items to Homeplus shops. In both cases this was because another part of the shopping centre had a Tesco Superstore that stocked food items only. By 2014, the number of Homeplus shops in the United Kingdom had reached 12; the newest shop opened in Chester in July 2009. In 2012 it was reported that Tesco was looking to close the business to focus on groceries.[87] Tesco closed six Homeplus shops on 15 March 2015,[47] and the remaining six shops closed on 27 June 2015.[88]
Dear Sir, let me comment on your prediction that by ‘by 2025 millions will have forsaken Islam’ sounds very odd and far from the actual truth. As a matter of fact as I see it Islam, the pure and authentic Abrahamic Divine Creed will strive and will be embraced by a vast majority of people of good will and those who really believe in submission to the Divine Will of our Creator and the unique and all- merciful God! Mark my words: The salvation of humanity lies in abiding by, Islamic Monotheism and it will happen between 2017-2021.
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.
Here is an archive of my past posts and articles. While there is a focus on financial and political issues, there are also some posts that examine other events from an astrological perspective. Using a blend of Vedic and Western systems of interpretation, we can see how symbolic correlations emerge between the stars and the worlds of politics, business, and entertainment.
A few days earlier, Weingarten subscribed me to his weekly market forecasting newsletter, whose major insight lately has been: “US MARKETS ARE ‘EASY’ IF YOU REMEMBER THAT TRUMP’S 2018 HOROSCOPE IS STELLAR.” I ask Weingarten what that means. He responds by chronicling his rise from fledgling East Village astrologer to financial oracle, from his prediction of the 1990 crash in Japan to his glorious 2016, in which he was long on a Trump victory and the market rally to follow. I ask the same question maybe five more times before he clarifies that he had seen a “double Jupiter” in Trump’s horoscope, “which was a big win.” This year “he has a Jupiter-Neptune.” Which means? “It means he’s going to win.” Which tells us what about U.S. markets? It tells us they will win. “Jupiter means winning. Win! Win! Win!”
Over the next year, "equities will probably continue to go up as we have all these stock buybacks and free cash flow," Minerd told CNBC. But "ultimately, when the chickens come home to roost and we have a recession, we're going to see a lot of pressure on equities especially as defaults rise, and I think once we reach a peak that we'll probably see a 40% retracement in equities."
Super article de vulgarisation. J’ai commencé à prendre mes finances personnelles en main également et la courbe d’apprentissage est vraiment impressionnante quand on s’y met un peu. Pour moi c’est terminé les fonds communs par le biais d’institution financière (et pourtant je travaille pour l’une d’entre elle…), je ne crois toutefois pas retirer immédiatement les sommes investies mais plutôt gérer de plus en plus activement le reste de mon épargne. Je continuerai de vous suivre ! Au plaisir d’échanger avec vous.
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.
“It Is Not Just That the Buy-and-Holders Get it Wrong. It Is That the Buy-and-Holders Cannot Tolerate Anyone Else Getting It Right. Buy-and-Holders Attack Those Who Advocate Research-Based Strategies Because, When People Come to See the Merits of Research-Based Strategies, It Makes the Buy-and-Holders Look Bad for Promoting the OPPOSITE of What Works. What Works Is to Always Practice Price Discipline When Buying Stocks. Buy-and-Holders Tell Investors NOT to Exercise Price Discipline (Long-Term Timing). Huh? What the F?”

George, the blogger at the Investing Online AI blog, has written a post advocating the use of P/E10 to know when it is dangerous to own stocks. George learned about Valuation-Informed Indexing from a Guest Blog Entry that I wrote at another site and we had a long telephone conversation the other night in which we discussed the wonders of the P/E10 stock valuation metric. His blog entry is titled P/E10 -- A Tool for Investing. Juicy Excerpt: If there were a way to know if the market was…
Set forth below is the text of a post that I recently put to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site: “Please tell me the downside, Anonymous.” We can’t all live in Rob’s fantasyland. We have to live in reality. My fantasyland comes with a Nobel prize. Yours comes with death threats and demands for unjustified board bannings and thousands of acts of defamation and threats to get academic researchers fired from their jobs. Reason vs. Emotion. My best. Fantasyland Rob Related PostsGoon Poster to Rob: “You Have Stated What You Think Are Problems. People Have Responded As to How They Disagree. People Eventually Got Angry Because of Repetitive Comments Going in Circles.”“Set Up a Debate at the Bogleheads Forum. We’ll Make History.”Buy-and-Hold Goon to Rob: “I Have Not Seen One Single Scared Person, Except for You. You Are So Scared, You Have to Make Up Stories About Pretend Death Threats, Job Threats, Fraud and Prison.”“Part of the Job is to Describe the Pressures that Caused so Many Generally Good and Smart People Either to Participate in the Cover-Up or at the Minimum Tolerate It.

That’s Why We See All This Strange Behavior. We Have an Emotional Time Bomb Out There.”

In the world of personal finance, there’s a long-standing debate that never seems to go away. Should you hire a financial advisor or can you just teach yourself how to invest? Some investing experts are even adamantly against hiring financial advisors and believe that an individual can learn everything they need to know on their own. Meanwhile, others insist on hiring a financial advisor who knows the market better than you do.
Other important economic barometers were also slowing or even falling by mid-1929, including car sales, house sales, and steel production. The falling commodity and industrial production may have dented even American self-confidence, and the stock market peaked on September 3 at 381.17 just after Labor Day, then started to falter after Roger Babson issued his prescient "market crash" forecast. By the end of September, the market was down 10% from the peak (the "Babson Break"). Selling intensified in early and mid October, with sharp down days punctuated by a few up days. Panic selling on huge volume started the week of October 21 and intensified and culminated on October 24, the 28th, and especially the 29th ("Black Tuesday").[26]
{+}  Lastly, there are transiting planet cycles to the U.S. chart that have repeatedly correlated with recessions and panics.  The greatest economic downturns tend to be when sunspots are low, during dry weather trends, and when certain slow transits (21-year Uranus, 41-year Neptune, or 62-year Pluto) are formed to the U.S. natal chart.  Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto transiting one of the U.S. chart angles also indicates panic.
You have the Nodes in Taurus-Scorpio and Pluto at 0 Scorpio. This is several past lives spent being both rich and poor, and you have incarnated to use all your previous lifetime lessons, in 2018 and 2019. Your spiritual lesson is about the need to let go, where business, money, property or possessions are concerned. Your other lesson is to learn that there is a price to be paid for everything and it may not be in dollars, pounds, or euros – you have to ‘put a price on’ other precious things like integrity, compassion, respect, credibility, trust and so on. I mention this because you have a strong chart signature across the Second House-Eighth House of your chart. In fact, you should really look up both those houses on Search as they have a big impact on you in 2018, 2019. Uranus will move to 0 Taurus and oppose your natal Pluto at 0 Scorpio so it is very important that you are ready to adapt, adjust and make changes very quickly in May and June, particularly where that combination of personal relationships and money is concerned. Pluto seeks to dominate, to control, to take and take over when it comes to business. I am sure you know that about yourself! Uranus opposing Pluto tells you to try and relinquish your grip on the reins and be ready to bend. Don’t hang on tightly or try to cling to the past. You’re not going there.
Set forth below is a Guest Blog Entry by Larry Weber, a new community member. I've taken the words from a post that Larry put last night to an earlier thread. Rob, I think we have found some common ground. There was absolutely no “main street/stream” investment type that agreed with my decision back in late 2006 when I opted out of the market (to be precise 92 percent out of the market). They thought I was crazy for leaving the market based on conventional investment wisdom at the…

I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the www.MyRetirementBlog.com site. It's entitled What If Everything You Thought You Knew About Retirement Planning Turned Out To Be Wrong? Juicy Excerpt: I never went to investing school. I never managed a big fund. It shouldn’t be possible for me to be the first person to develop a retirement calculator that gets the numbers right. I mean, come on! But the numbers generated by my retirement calculator are very different from the numbers generated by all…


Tesco made a commitment to corporate social responsibility in the form of contributions of 1.87% in 2006 of its pre-tax profits to charities and local community organizations.[121] This compares favourably with Marks & Spencer, whose 1.51% is lower than Sainsbury's 7.02%.[122] This figure, £42 million, is lower than the amount of money reported to have been avoided in tax during 2007 (see below). Will Hutton, in his role as chief executive of The Work Foundation, in 2007 praised Tesco for leading the debate on corporate responsibility.[123] However Intelligent Giving has criticized the company for directing all "staff giving" support to the company's Charity of the Year.[124]
Unfortunately we are going to the brink of serious global conflict, but it will be okay in the end. I was very unhappy with Trump’s timing of the North Korea/South Korea ‘peace’ talks as he did it on Mercury Retrograde, exactly the same cycle that Chamberlain appeased Hitler. What we have to trust and hope for is the mini Age of Aquarius which comes from Christmas 2019 when people power and one-world thinking will prevail. What you need to remember about 1935 is the anti-Semitism too. We just saw this in Britain and it affected this week’s elections, working against the Labour party. So, history really does repeat. Take a look at Tesla and Mr. Musk. That’s my big tip. Their charts show exact matches in late Scorpio and Jupiter (abundance) is headed there, later this year.
(1)1998=666x3, and 1999 has 666 upside down, and 666 is the number of the Antichrist (also called The Beast) in Revelation 13, I believe these numbers are connected with his appearance in year 2000 (as Russia's President Putin), and there will be a powerful satanic influence in the world (related to Putin) in 2018 - 2019, that relates to the rise of the Antichrist Putin. Revelation is the last chapter of the Bible, and includes a series of prophecies of catastrophic events-- wars, earthquakes, diseases, economic chaos, and the arrival of the Antichrist. Angels are also mentioned in Revelation, such as an angel from the East in Revelation 7, another Angel in Revelation 10. Many people believe the prophecies of the Bible are coming true now, as described in Revelation; the popularity of the excellent book "The Bible Code" by Michael Drosnin, (see this page for more discussion of it, and this page on the King James version Bible Code) indicates the interest of people in Bible prophecy. Another interesting book: "The Da Vinci Code", by Dan Brown, is about the Biblical-related mystery concerning Mary Magdalene, and the legend that she actually married Jesus Christ, and had children by him, whose descendants were kings of France, and that the blood line has been traced to present times by a secret society in Europe. See this page for relevant discussion on this subject. As described in the prophecies of Revelation, the Antichrist is the son of Satan, a Satanic imitation of Christ. The Antichrist will be assisted by the False Prophet, who is the Second Beast of Revelation 13. The False Prophet is said to work apparent miracles, including "bringing fire down from heaven". The Antichrist is described as having the mouth of a lion, feet of a bear, and gets his power from the dragon: the bear is Russia, the dragon is Red China and also Satan, and the mouth of a lion I think is Hong Kong, the former British colony that is now part of China. This indicates a Russia-Red China military alliance. A second meaning of the lion is Iran, where before the Islamic Revolution Iran had a Lion on its flag, indicating a Russia-China-Iran military alliance, with Russia helping Iran build the A-Bomb by helping it with its nuclear program, and Russia has been selling military equipment such as missles to Iran. The "mouth of a lion" could be Iran. Also, note that a Russia-China military alliance has formed in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) which consists now of Russia, China, and 4 Central asian Countries, and which met in October 2005, and there was a Russia-China joint military exercise in 2005. Clearly the SCO was formed as an alliance against the U.S. and Western Europe. And more countries may join the SCO. The SCO may actually develop into a confederation of 10 states led by the Antichrist Putin, the red 10 horned beast of Revelation 13. Also, it is possible that Belarus may unify with Russia, so it is shown in the drawing below. "The little horn" is a name for the Antichrist from the Book of Daniel (note Putin's small size), so St. Petersburg Russia is where this little horn of the red beast has grown.

To a financial astrologer, this is unsurprising. Recently I connected with an enigmatic finance guy who for decades applied his astrological models in relative secret as a trader on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. He was drawn to astrology via Buddhism, on which he overlaid, among other things, economist Joseph Schumpeter’s theory of cyclical creative destruction. The trader, who asked that his name not be used for fear of being shamed, cites Einstein to point out the universe is just a pattern of energy, and thus obviously shaped by the movements of large heavenly masses. How could markets not be affected by the sun, moon, and planets?
First Total Lunar eclipse (partially visible in India) will fall on 31st January 2018 in Cancer ascendant. Cancer is a Watery sign and possesses movable characteristics. Waterrelated problems can trouble India. Stocks of Agro, commodities, grains, tea and FMCG sector companies will be affected. The investors of these sectors are suggested to stay cautious and are advised to book profit at the first sign of weakness.
February of 2013 I had a dream prediction that Barrack Obama would be assassinated. Specifically, the dream precognition came twice, and was one of him being deleted as on a computer screen. So the assassination part was my interpretation, not the actual dream. I didn’t understand it the first time, then it repeated and I understood it, so it didn’t have to repeat again.

Some exchanges are physical locations where transactions are carried out on a trading floor, by a method known as open outcry. This method is used in some stock exchanges and commodity exchanges, and involves traders shouting bid and offer prices. The other type of stock exchange has a network of computers where trades are made electronically. An example of such an exchange is the NASDAQ.


Transitwise, Jupiter opposes its natal position and is conjunct the Moon. This will tend to be a positive influence. Other potentially favourable longer term influences include Uranus which trines the Moon. However, there are a greater number of negative transits here. Neptune precisely squares the nodes, while Saturn is applying to square Mars in the 2nd house of wealth. Perhaps more bearish is that Ketu conjoins natal Rahu and thereby aspects 2nd lord Sun, which is natally conjoined with Mercury. The most bearish transit influence is Pluto (powerful destruction) which sits on the IC and opposes Venus (money). This is a very clearly negative aspect. Moreover, tertiary progressed Mars was tightly squaring the very malefic conjunction of Ketu and Neptune, while P3 Mercury (trading) conjoined P3 Saturn (loss).
Cardholders can collect one Clubcard point for every £1 (or one point for €1 in Ireland and Slovakia or 1 point for 1zł in Poland) they spend in a Tesco shop, or at Tesco.com, and 1 point per £2 on fuel (not in Slovakia). Customers can also collect points by paying with a Tesco Credit Card, or by using Tesco Mobile, Tesco Homephone, Tesco Broadband, selected Tesco Personal Finance products or through Clubcard partners, E.ON and Avis. Each point equates to 1p in shops when redeemed, or up to four times that value when used with Clubcard deals (offers for holidays, day trips, etc.) Clubcard points (UK & IE) can also be converted to Avios and Virgin Atlantic frequent flyer miles.[72]

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is a physical exchange, with a hybrid market for placing orders electronically from any location as well as on the trading floor. Orders executed on the trading floor enter by way of exchange members and flow down to a floor broker, who submits the order electronically to the floor trading post for the Designated Market Maker ("DMM") for that stock to trade the order. The DMM's job is to maintain a two-sided market, making orders to buy and sell the security when there are no other buyers or sellers. If a spread exists, no trade immediately takes place – in this case the DMM may use their own resources (money or stock) to close the difference. Once a trade has been made, the details are reported on the "tape" and sent back to the brokerage firm, which then notifies the investor who placed the order. Computers play an important role, especially for program trading.
Hi, thanks for your work. I know you said that a couple of US ships sank already in a training exercise, but when you wrote about a big sinking event of a US boat I recalled that some time back Iran claimed to have “carrier-killer” torpedo. Not long ago after the US/Iran “Deal” was nixed Iran said it had total control of the Straights of Hormuz, and since then there seems to be radio silence concerning Iran, no news at all in the major outlets. Maybe it’s a carrier that’ll sink? Only time will tell I guess.

À vrai dire, j’ai une perception plutôt mitigée des « day traders ». Je suis un adepte convaincu de la philosophie Buffett, investir à long terme dans des entreprises de qualité, avec du potentiel de croissance, une bonne équipe de gestion, etc. J’imagine que vous vous basez principalement sur l’analyse technique. Même si c’est contraire à ma stratégie, votre approche pique ma curiosité.
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.
The trend towards forms of saving with a higher risk has been accentuated by new rules for most funds and insurance, permitting a higher proportion of shares to bonds. Similar tendencies are to be found in other developed countries. In all developed economic systems, such as the European Union, the United States, Japan and other developed nations, the trend has been the same: saving has moved away from traditional (government insured) "bank deposits to more risky securities of one sort or another".

Saturn at 2 Taurus opposite Jupiter at 2 Scorpio in your chart will certainly be under transit from Uranus, so it can help to take them apart. Essentially you have justified fear (Saturn) about money, business, property or possessions (Taurus) based on one or two very tough past episodes (Saturn) which have led you to build up ‘walls’ and defences. At the same time, whenever you attempt to build these walls to make yourself feel more secure, you realise you are blessed (Jupiter) by natural protection and good fortune, when it comes to more complex agreements about money, or arrangements about houses, apartments, possessions and the rest. This is a lifelong pattern of push/pull around your budget, security and values. What happens when Uranus crosses to 2 Taurus will change and challenge that pattern. Just knowing that Uranus is about independence, freedom, space, liberty and room to move will help you make informed decisions.


The Online Investing AI blog has posted my Guest Blog Entry titled All Stock Price Drops Help You, All Stock Price Gains Hurt You. Juicy Excerpt: The mathematical realities are precisely the opposite of what I have described in the scenario set forth above. The first year, the one in which stock prices went down 30 percent, was the lucky one for investors. The second year, the one in which stock prices went up 30 percent, is the one which you should be cursing your bad luck. Price drops are…
After a one-day recovery on October 30, where the Dow regained an additional 28.40 points, or 12 percent, to close at 258.47, the market continued to fall, arriving at an interim bottom on November 13, 1929, with the Dow closing at 198.60. The market then recovered for several months, starting on November 14, with the Dow gaining 18.59 points to close at 217.28, and reaching a secondary closing peak (i.e., bear market rally) of 294.07 on April 17, 1930. The following year, the Dow embarked on another, much longer, steady slide from April 1931 to July 8, 1932, when it closed at 41.22—its lowest level of the 20th century, concluding an 89 percent loss rate for all of the market's stocks.

It's the "experts" who got us into our current economic mess. It's does not make too much sense to think that it's going to be the "experts" who are going to get us out. We need new ideas. New ideas come from new places. That's why my first choice of a partner for my initiative on getting the word out to middle-class investors about what we have learned about the realities of stock investing over the past seven years was the author of the Frugal Dad blog. Frugal Dad is a smart fellow, a…

Le 6 mai 2010, en début d'après-midi, le Dow Jones a commencé à décliner pendant que la crise de la dette publique grecque s'intensifiait et alors que la plupart des grands indices financiers aussi bien sur le marché des futures9 que sur les marchés des actions avait déjà subi une baisse d'environ 4 %. À 14 h 27, la baisse s'accentua. À 14 h 45, elle devint vertigineuse avec des ticks (en) à trois chiffres. En trois minutes, le Dow Jones perdit 433 points. Mais à 14 h 57, le Dow Jones avait repris 619,42 points. Les prix de nombreuses actions avaient connu une importante baisse, suivie d'une remontée en quelques minutes. Soudainement, une nouvelle baisse de 5,6 % intervint avant de s'annuler tout aussi rapidement. Environ 8 000 titres de sociétés et ETF échangés alors ont enregistré des mouvements de cours similaires, perdant de 5 % à 15 % avant de les regagner en totalité ou presque. Des actions ont subi des mouvements de prix encore plus sévères. Environ 20 000 échanges boursiers concernant 300 sociétés ont été exécutés à des prix supérieurs ou inférieurs à 60 % de leurs valeurs quelques instants auparavant. À la fin de la journée, la plupart des indices actions avaient perdu 3 % par rapport au cours de clôture de la veille. Le Dow Jones, qui avait ouvert la séance à 10 862,22 points, a atteint un plus bas de 9 787,17 points avant de clôturer à 10 520,32 points.
You can cushion the effects of a crash by allocating to defensive and blue-chip stocks, bonds, gold and cash. Having some cash in your portfolio also allows you to buy back into the market at lower levels. The current stock market is fairly expensive, but there are no signs of an imminent crash. However, that doesn’t mean market conditions can’t change quickly. That’s why you should always be ready for the next crash.

One Stop, which includes some of the smallest shops (smaller than a Tesco Express), is the only Tesco shop format in the UK that does not include the word Tesco in its name. The brand, along with the original shops, formed part of the T&S Stores business but, unlike many that were converted to Tesco Express, these kept their old name. Subsequently, other shops bought by Tesco have been converted to the One Stop brand. Some have Tesco Personal Finance branded cash machines. The business has attracted some controversy, as the prices of groceries in these shops, often situated in more impoverished areas, can be higher than nearby Tesco branded shops, highlighted in The Times 22 March 2010: "Britain’s biggest supermarket uses its chain of 639 One Stop convenience shops–which many customers do not realise it owns–to charge up to 14 per cent more for goods than it does in Tesco-branded shops."[63]
In the case of books, it would be wise not to try to reinvent the wheel. If you know a book is excellent for investing, then pick it up and start reading. For example, if Warren Buffet says to read “The Intelligent Investor” by Benjamin Graham then you’d better find it and start reading. Admittedly, some of the older books on the topic of investing are very dry. In this case, it may be helpful to get the audio version.

50 years later from June 10 1967 is June 10 2017. Will this be starting in 2017 the End Times period, which according to this prophecy will see the coming of the Messiah? And the Christian interpretation is that this will be the returned Christ, who will defeat the Antichrist at the Battle of Armageddon, which I think is World War 3 started by Putin.
I’m ready, but nervous. IF, this is the big one, and you are wanting this or think you will pop some corn and enjoy the show, then you are unaware of the big picture. Yes it may be enjoyable for a while (I get no joy from this BTW), it WILL effect you in ways you haven’t yet thought of. Yes those of us that are prepared will weather it better than those not prepared, but this isn’t going to be fun in the long run.
The level of panic that we witnessed on Wall Street on Wednesday was breathtaking.  After a promising start to the day, the Dow Jones Industrial Average started plunging, and at the close it was down another 608 points.  Since peaking at 26,951.81 on October 3rd, the Dow has now fallen 2,368 points, and all of the gains for 2018 have been completely wiped out.  But things are even worse when we look at the Nasdaq.  The percentage decline for the Nasdaq almost doubled the Dow’s stunning plunge on Wednesday, and it has now officially entered correction territory.  To say that it was a “bloodbath” for tech stocks on Wednesday would be a major understatement.  Several big name tech stocks were in free fall mode as panic swept through the marketplace like wildfire.  As I noted the other day, October 2018 looks a whole lot like October 2008, and many believe that the worst is yet to come.
However, in 1929 we didn’t have have the same rules, regulations and stop gaps that were put into place later so even though the aspects were not as insane as they were in the 2008 chart – it clearly was enough for an innate volatile and unchecked market to plunge. In this chart Uranus is going through the 8th (other people’s money 8th and Uranus=volatility) Pluto was making an applying square to the Moon in the 8th and the lights were Mercury/Sun midpoint on the natal Jupiter/Neptune conjunction which opposes the natal Saturn/Moon opposition. So basically there is a T-Square from Pluto in Cancer being triggered by those faster moving planets. And the general volatility of Uranus in the 8th and the time period where there were less controls over the market made it take a plunge. Neptune was also conjunct the cusp – just hitting the first house. That big shift over that 1st house on the angle was also a major contributor despite the fact that it was making a trine to Venus. Whenever a big planet hits that point something should happen. Otherwise that T-square (by the Pluto in Cancer transit) should have had a counterpoint when Pluto hits that same point in opposition like – oops, NOW!
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 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.
