I recently wrote a Guest Blog Entry for the Improve the Quality blog entitled Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires -- and Bull Markets! Juicy Excerpt: We cannot wait until prices are insanely high to warn people that they must sell their stocks, however. By then, people are too caught up in the fantasy thinking that characterizes bull markets to listen to reasonable advice. I think we need a change in our mindset toward stock investing. We need to think of the stock market as a community…
Venus will enter Leo sign on 4th and will be under the aspect of Mars. There will be rise in the rates of Gold & Silver. The demand in the grains & commodities like peanuts & sesame will be noticed. Sun will enter Cancer sign on 16th, Monday and thereby conjoin Mercury & Rahu. These three planets will be under the aspect of Mars. The rates of dairy & beverages stocks (Hatsun, Kwality, Parag & Manpasand etc) will go down. Petro stocks may also see decline in the demand (BPCL, Chennai Petro & IOC etc). Rains will be normal. Bullions will see selling trend. Stocks indices will also see depressing sentiments.
Plus votre horizon de placement est long, plus vous pourriez augmenter votre exposition au risque. Ainsi, si vous disposez de 25 ans avant votre retraite, vous pourriez choisir des placements plus risqués, qui offrent de bons rendements à long terme. Par ailleurs, n’oubliez pas de considérer tous les projets futurs qui pourraient entraîner des besoins en capital (ex : rénovations, achat d’une propriété, formation universitaire, etc.).

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.
Sadly my feeling is that more lone nuts will continue to do the same type of thing for some time to come. Celebrity and the Rich and powerful Kidnappings will become a serious issue too. I am very hopeful though about outcome of the School attack in Pakistan: I predict that Nawaz Sharif will make a real effort now to rid Pakistan of terrorism and ordinary decent Muslims will become more vocal about enough being enough. As well as cooperation with Afghanistan I believe he will come to a compromise with India too and terrorism groups hiding out in Kashmir and Nepal will be disrupted.
IN AUGUST 1999 WHEN PUTIN FIRST ROSE TO POWER IN RUSSIA, THERE WAS A RARE GRAND CROSS ASTROLOGY PATTERN OF PLANETS IN A CROSS SHAPE, AND A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OVER EUROPE, INDICATING THAT PUTIN IS THE EVIL ANTICHRIST OF REVELATION 13 WHOSE NUMBER IS 666. Putin is attempting to destroy NATO and take over the world. Do not underestimate Putin - Putin has hypnosis mind control powers he can use to control people, hypnotizing them by staring at them, his eyes are said to be intense and hypnotizing. Others who could hypnotize people with their gaze were Rasputin and Hitler.
De mon côté, c’est ma première et unique expérience en bourse via mon CELI. Je ne suis passé par aucune autre étape. J’ai pu enfin avoir l’argent pour le combler d’un coup, et puis me voilà depuis le 17 juillet dernier. J’ai donc opté pour la stratégie passive à long terme que Buffett recommande à ses connaissances qui n’ont que de modestes ressources mais qui aspirent comme tout le monde à obtenir leur part de l’enrichissement collectif. Dans ce but, le FNB qui suit le SP 500 reste la base, le classique du genre: à lui seul il suffit à la tâche, c’est un portefeuille en soi, il est déjà parfaitement diversifié, et les transnationales qui composent l’indice nous fait aussi participer indirectement à l’économie mondiale. Il faut cependant croire autant que Buffett depuis toujours en la pérennité de l’économie américaine. Dans mon cas, cela ne représente que 18 % de mes avoirs, soit moins que les 25 % en actions pour le profit prudent comme le mien, à mon âge, presque 65 ans. Je vais m’en tenir à cela pour me mettre à l’abri de l’inflation, rien de plus. Là-dessus, je vais continuer de lire votre blogue vraiment très pertinent et intéressant. Bonne continuation!

“ The stock market — the daytime adventure serial of the well-to-do — would not be the stock market if it did not have its ups and downs. (...) And it has many other distinctive characteristics. Apart from the economic advantages and disadvantages of stock exchanges — the advantage that they provide a free flow of capital to finance industrial expansion, for instance, and the disadvantage that they provide an all too convenient way for the unlucky, the imprudent, and the gullible to lose their money — their development has created a whole pattern of social behavior, complete with customs, language, and predictable responses to given events. What is truly extraordinary is the speed with which this pattern emerged full blown following the establishment, in 1611, of the world's first important stock exchange — a roofless courtyard in Amsterdam — and the degree to which it persists (with variations, it is true) on the New York Stock Exchange in the nineteen-sixties. Present-day stock trading in the United States — a bewilderingly vast enterprise, involving millions of miles of private telegraph wires, computers that can read and copy the Manhattan Telephone Directory in three minutes, and over twenty million stockholder participants — would seem to be a far cry from a handful of seventeenth-century Dutchmen haggling in the rain. But the field marks are much the same. The first stock exchange was, inadvertently, a laboratory in which new human reactions were revealed. By the same token, the New York Stock Exchange is also a sociological test tube, forever contributing to the human species' self-understanding. The behaviour of the pioneering Dutch stock traders is ably documented in a book entitled “Confusion of Confusions,” written by a plunger on the Amsterdam market named Joseph de la Vega; originally published in 1688, (...) ”
These blogs also often lead to additional resources you can use to further your education. Generally, they mention other bloggers or books they’ve read to help them on their investing journey. This a method that Robert Farrington, investor and founder of TheCollegeInvestor.com recommends to his readers. "I highly suggest reading blogs and websites geared towards beginning investors," Farrington says. "There are a lot of amazing free resources out there for individuals looking to learn how to invest. For example, we have our free Learn How To Invest video training course, that goes through the basics of how to get started investing."

Fast forward thirty years. I’ve discovered an analog chart model that correlates the markets of the 1980s to the markets of the 2010s. Specifically, it correlates the S&P 500 from 1978 to 1987 to the S&P 500 from 2010 to 2018. The correlation rate? 94%. In other words, this model shows that the stock market of the past eight years is trading similar to the stock market of the 1980s.
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.)
Any investor or investment professional who seeks a genuine understanding of looming financial disasters should read this book. Physicists, geologists, biologists, economists, and others will welcome Why Stock Markets Crash as a highly original "scientific tale," as Sornette aptly puts it, of the exciting and sometimes fearsome--but no longer quite so unfathomable--world of stock markets.
Tax avoidance has not always related to corporation tax. A number of companies including Tesco used a scheme to avoid VAT by deeming 2.5% of purchases paid for by card to be a 'card transaction fee', which reduced the company's tax liability without changing the charge to the customer. Such schemes came to light after HMRC litigated against Debenhams over the scheme in 2005.[147]
Blind optimism over the tax cuts have led Wall Street analysts to produce a 2019 forward earnings estimate that's 46% greater than the most recent 12-month operating earnings for the S&P 500, he said. "The combination of extreme valuations and extreme earnings expectations creates a situation that's ripe for disappointment," wrote Hussman in a recent blog post on his company site.

Last year I predicted a ‘world flu epidemic’ toward the end of 2017 or the start of 2018. I feel this could still happen. (10/10 Correct: “‘worst killer flu’ in 50 years” – Headline: The Sun 5th Jan 2018.) There may be a link to biological warfare seeded in multiple countries by North Korea working with a terrorist group. (Happening? “Reports Pyongyang is testing biological weapons for use on ballistic missiles.” Sky Television 27th Dec 2017 – these predictions were posted in October 2017)

On October 24, many of the world's stock exchanges experienced the worst declines in their history, with drops of around 10% in most indices.[38] In the US, the DJIA fell 3.6%, i.e. not as much as other markets.[39] Instead, both the US dollar and Japanese yen soared against other major currencies, particularly the British pound and Canadian dollar, as world investors sought safe havens. Later that day, the deputy governor of the Bank of England, Charles Bean, suggested that "This is a once in a lifetime crisis, and possibly the largest financial crisis of its kind in human history."[40]


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.
