(10) Europe, Russia, and the Muslim world. Watch out for Russia, an increasingly negative influence could arise there. Not the type of democracy we see in the West. This relates to the Confederation of Independent States being originally a Confederation of 10 states, although I think it is more now. There is a red 10-horned beast in Revelation, that is a nasty creature. It is explained in Revelation that this is a Confederation of 10 states.
Predictions or opinions it seems the two fit hand in glove and it don’t take a mystic to see the world is heading for testing times, it is always heading for testing times, I will take the predictions I read here with a pinch of optimistic salt. We see the world as we are not as the world is and if you look only for the bad that is what you will find, myself I have yet to read in a newspaper the billion random acts of kindness that take place every day because it never makes the newspapers. So ask yourself is no news good news.
Hi Craig, with only two days left now until the Brexit referendum, the statisticians are now that the chances of leaving Europe are now only 1/5. Polls and opinion are saying it’s 80% likely there will be a vote to remain (this may be directly linked to recent news events/incidents at the weekend, along with media scaremongering). Worth noting, that last week it was an even 50/50 chance for Brexit. So, do you still believe a Brexit will occur in two days time on the 23rd June 2016? And if it doesn’t would it be in the nations best interest to Br-remain?
By 2014, Tesco appeared to have lost some of its appeal to customers.[109] The share price lost 49 per cent of its value up to October as it struggled to fend off competition from rivals Aldi and Lidl.[110] In October 2014, Tesco suspended 8 executives following its announcement the previous month that it had previously overstated its profits by £250 million. The misreporting resulted in almost £2.2 billion being wiped off the value of the company’s stock market value. The suspended executives included former commercial director Kevin Grace and UK managing director Chris Bush.[111][112] The profit overstatement was subsequently revised upwards to £263 million following an investigation by the accountancy firm Deloitte, and it was clarified that the inflated profit figure was the result of Tesco bringing forward rebates from suppliers. The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) confirmed on 29 October 2014 that it was carrying out a criminal investigation into the accounting irregularities but declined to give further details.[113]
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…
All of these options will provide a basis that can make you feel more comfortable reaching investing decisions, but the best investing decision is often to sit tight and ride out market waves. You shouldn’t be making any radical changes to your portfolio based on something you read or viewed in an online course like this; the goal is to get more comfortable with the markets in general.
The key there is the huge gap between rich and poor you mention. This is a global problem. Capricorn is about the mountain goat who climbs to the top. It’s a symbol for the wealthiest 1% who have made it to the top of capitalism. People who make it, in a system, often tend to be strongly Capricorn. The Trump administration has a high number of Sun Capricorn men at the top. As Saturn, Pluto – and then Ceres and Jupiter – go through Capricorn to 2020, that is the end of the old, and the birth of the new. At the same time, the revolution of Uranus in Taurus (money) is here. If I can find a reliable chart for Hong Kong I’ll dig it up for you. But it sounds to me as if you’re on the money.
Tout dépend dans quoi tu investis mais si c’est des FNB et que tu as des frais limités à 9,95$…si tu retires 10 000$ par mois, ça te coûtera 120$ pour retirer 120 000$ –> 0,001%. Et si tu as des problèmes à liquider tes FNB parce que les positions sont trop grosses…c’est que tu auras ÉNORMÉMENT d’argent et les frais de transaction vont te passer 20 000 pieds au dessus de la tête.
People warned about subprime mortgage loans, derivatives, and too much leverage, but nobody, to my knowledge, said a bursting housing bubble would cause a global crisis that would lead to the demise of venerable financial firms, require trillion-dollar taxpayer bailouts, and cause a recession that rivalled only the Great Depression in its magnitude.
The mathematical description of stock market movements has been a subject of intense interest. The conventional assumption has been that stock markets behave according to a random log-normal distribution.[9] Among others, mathematician Benoît Mandelbrot suggested as early as 1963 that the statistics prove this assumption incorrect.[10] Mandelbrot observed that large movements in prices (i.e. crashes) are much more common than would be predicted from a log-normal distribution. Mandelbrot and others suggested that the nature of market moves is generally much better explained using non-linear analysis and concepts of chaos theory.[11] This has been expressed in non-mathematical terms by George Soros in his discussions of what he calls reflexivity of markets and their non-linear movement.[12] George Soros said in late October 1987, 'Mr. Robert Prechter's reversal proved to be the crack that started the avalanche'.[13][14]
Since Saturn will be entering Aquarius later in 2020, I predict that the shift towards the mass adoption of cryptocurrencies will be inevitable, in whatever form it will be by then… After all, Aquarius is the reformer of the zodiac and once Saturn in Capricorn tears up the poorly operating structures, removing illegal operations, scammy cryptocurrencies, ICOs and even IPOs (in traditional markets), it will want to adopt a new world order. We will not see the ultimate results of that until well into mid-2020’s (so mark my words 😉) because we will also be dealing with some environmental issues (but I won’t discuss that now), but for now, sit tight and don’t even think about fooling the system anymore. Trust me, Saturn in Capricorn won’t allow you to…

A number of personal finance bloggers have engaged in a good discussion of The Matter That Consumes Us All at the thread at the Hope to Prosper Blog relating to my guest post titled The Economic Crisis Is the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Us. Of particular import is an exchange between the blogger Roshawn @ Watson Inc. and me, set forth below: Roshawn @ Watson Inc: Okay Rob, Your article has intrigued me. My immediate inclination is the same as Bret: cool concept but applying it…

Moreover, the leverage in many emerging markets and some advanced economies is clearly excessive. Commercial and residential real estate is far too expensive in many parts of the world. The emerging-market correction in equities, commodities, and fixed-income holdings will continue as global storm clouds gather. And as forward-looking investors start anticipating a growth slowdown in 2020, markets will reprice risky assets by 2019.
I think its the Bhrigu Samhita that has predicted this (Similar to the Naadis) I was able to consult it about my own life and like the Naadis it had my name written in – it was written there centuries ago. I was very accurate about my life and confirmed the Naadis. I have not personally been given this prediction via an oracle or holy man or through my own intuition so I cannot comment.
Also, the Astrological events of August 1999 (a solar eclipse seen in Europe and a rare alignment of planets in a cross shape) is discussed. Possible Antichrist sighting: I think the Antichrist is the Russian President elected in March 2000, Vlad Putin, and the Red Dragon that Putin the Antichrist will be allied with is China, as well as Iran. And the planetary alignment of 5/5/2000 with the sun and planets on one side of the earth is discussed, note that Vladimir Putin was inaugurated as President of Russia 2 days later on May 7, 2000. And on November 4 2003 there was the largest solar flare ever seen, when Putin was in Rome, and on Nov. 8 there was a lunar eclipse and a grand sextile hexagon shaped astrology pattern, again indicating Putin is the Antichrist; apparently Putin visiting Rome, which is connected with the Antichrist in Bible prophecy, resulted in a tremendous Satanic force that resulted in the giant solar flare on Nov. 4 2003, see this page. And the possibility of a doomsday asteroid or comet collision with earth is discussed, note that in 2002 there were several asteroid near-misses with earth; and a King James Bible Code matrix may predict an asteroid hit in the ocean within a few years, causing a giant tidal wave. A suggestion: a great economic stimulus project would be to build an asteroid defense for earth, for a few billion $ NASA could build an asteroid defense using interceptor rockets, and this would create jobs in the U.S..
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…
Vous a-t-il au moins expliqué pourquoi il croit que les fonds indiciels sont une mauvaise idée? Personnellement, le seul point négatif que je vois actuellement aux fonds indiciels est que, si tout le monde investie dans ce type de fond, le marché va devenir stagnant, et à ce moment là ça risque d’être plus avantageux d’investir activement. Mais on est loin de ce scénario. La majorité des planificateurs financiers sont incapables de battre le marché de façon constante sur le long terme, et en tant qu’investisseur, perdre 2,3% de profit pour se payer un planificateur est énorme! On parle de 2,300$ par année sur 100,000$. Sur 20 ans on est rendu à 23,000$, sans compté les intérêts composés perdus. Imaginez sur une porte-feuille de quelques millions…
There will be a re-vamp of the flag. It will appear in the corner of the European nation’s flags as the stars appear in the corner of the USA Flag. (Flag not happened yet but the call for a 10/10 Correct European army has happened in November 2018. Predictions made in September 2018. See Sky News: “Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron in frosty meeting after French leader’s call for EU army”)
Stacey, your son needs to educate and update, on a constant basis, from this point forward and step it up, from the middle of May. This is not going to be the same world. Over the course of many years we will move away from banks and towards communities of friends who strike property or cryptocurrency deals with each other. All the old rules you and he knew will vanish in the revolution as Uranus (radical change, freedom, independence) goes through Taurus (money, houses, apartments, shopping, salary) and the age of Capricorn (the bankers, the multimillionaire politicians) ends in 2020, to be replaced by the Aquarius era, gathering speed from 2023. If ever there was a time to be open to all that is new and different, it’s now. Forget borrowing money from banks and paying them back interest, or borrowing money on credit cards. Forget banks ‘knowing best’ about where to invest your money. Those days are going, going, gone. I suspect the legal offshore tax avoidance by the super-rich (and of course the money laundering) may also, soon, be a thing of the past too. Different planet.

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?
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!
The talk about Scottish independence is clearly proving to be a long term matter, despite it already being something that seems to have been going on forever!. Scotland is very divided but pro-independence supporters are adamant that they’ll get their wish in the next few years. Scots(of which I am one) on either side of the argument seem to be developing an unhealthy aggression towards each other, the longer it drags on.
I have a hard time believing that she could only win by rigging the election. I think you are blinded by partisanship or your own personal political preferences. There are many people who don’t want Trump because he is very much a loose cannon or because of allegations related to his past business dealings. I think the Republicans are in a much stronger position to rig the elections because most governors and many state legislatures are GOP-controlled. To me, Trump looks desperate. I don’t recall any past major party candidate talking that much about someone rigging the election.
This new depression will be somewhere between the recession we felt of the 70s, and the 30s, but on a global scale. It won’t be barrels full of money to buy bread, but there will be tremendous unemployment and people having to change their lifestyles dramatically in some cases to get through this time. I also feel that the length and severity of this depression/recession has been greatly reduced by the election of Obama. His chart compared to that of the US constitution signing, and the Dow, and NASDAQ are good. Most of his energy regarding the markets will be spent in re-structuring them for the future good of the world’s economy.

The bottom line: As a sandpile grows, all sort of sand “avalanches” take place, but it is impossible to predict how big or how often they occur. Sometimes a few grains roll down the slope, while occasionally a large avalanche carves a big section of the sandpile. The size and frequency of those avalanches, mathematically speaking, bear a notable resemblance to the size and frequency of earthquakes, solar flares, river floods, forest fires, and stock market returns. Intriguingly, all of them have defied attempts at prediction. The question is why.

When markets are very volatile, the overall trend tends to be down.  So what investors should be hoping for are extremely boring days on Wall Street when not much happens.  That has been the usual state of affairs for much of the past decade, but now volatility has returned with a vengeance.  The following is how CNBC summarized the carnage that we witnessed on Friday…
Tesco introduced a loyalty card, branded 'Clubcard' in 1995, and later an Internet shopping service. In 1996 the typeface of the logo was changed to the current version with stripe reflections underneath, whilst the corporate font used for shop signage was changed from the familiar "typewriter" font that had been used since the 1970s. Overseas operations were introduced the same year.[9] Terry Leahy assumed the role of Chief Executive on 21 February 1997, the appointment having been announced on 21 November 1995.[22][23]
However, his 2020 call on a crash and burn scenario for the world economy does line up with the view of the Economist Intelligence Unit on the subject. And I have to say that I’ve written a number of times that 2020 looked like a year, when US economic growth could be getting a little long in the tooth, so I’ll be increasingly on the lookout for signs in 2019. 

I posted as Guest Blog Entry at the Married (with Debt) blog yesterday. It's called The Buy-and-Hold Myth. Juicy Excerpt: In the used-car market, the price of the car being sold is the result of a battle waged between the car seller and the car buyer. The seller wants a high price. The buyer wants a low one. Each side has to give something or risk seeing the negotiation fall through. The end result of the battle is usually a price that is more or less right. The car-selling market…

J’ai aussi lu jusqu’au bout et j’ai même pris des notes tout au long de ma lecture :). C’est un article très instructif et qui répond bien à son objectif de vulgariser aux néophytes (ce que je suis) l’investissement boursier. Je suis également un fan de CCP et de son assez récent podcast que je recommande d’ailleurs pour ceux n’ayant pas de problème avec la langue de Shakespeare. À ce point, et même si notre bas de laine n’est pas des plus imposants, ma conjointe et moi-même virons notre conseillère financière nous coûtant à elle seule 0,5% (de son propre aveu) pour prendre une part active dans notre avenir financier. Nous sommes bien sûr aussi d’accord que c’est d’abord en augmentant nos revenus ainsi qu’en se donnant une discipline d’épargne ambitieuse que nous atteindrons notre objectif d’indépendance financière.

“Across assets, these projections look tame relative to what the GFC delivered and probably unalarming relative to the recession/crisis averages” of the past, JPMorgan strategists John Normand and Federico Manicardi wrote, noting that during the recession and ensuing global financial crisis the S&P 500 fell 54 per cent from its peak. “We would nudge them all at least to their historical norms due to the wildcard from structurally less-liquid markets.”
Anaconda, Memes, and Obama: In Obama's first year, he prevented another Great Depression, saved the US auto industry, and put us on track to cut the uninsured rate in half and triple the stock market. Trump gave himself a $15-million-a- year tax cut and defended neo-Nazis. See the difference? OCCUPY DEMOCRAT Matt Palumbo Obama: 30 percent growth during the most volatile market on record-100% of that 30 percent gain was merely retracing lost value from past declines. Trump:25 percent growth. Least volatile market in history. First time since the 1980s where we had 12 straight positive months of stock market gains. Record low unemployment, rising wages, rising labor force participation. All gains make new all time highs
Hey DK. Since your brain is pegged to the 4th dimension. The $30 K I lost was back in 2002 when the dot com blew. I was making $90 K a year. Like spilled beer. Did not affect me. I was trading $20 K blocks at a time day trading. Its called the market maker, making the stock move. These are things you could only dream of. You cant even understand foreign exchange. The Yuan is not pegged to the dollar as you claim. You should stick to simple shit like beans and bullets. Economics is beyond you…
Tesco launched its customer loyalty scheme, the Tesco Clubcard, in 1995. It has been cited as a pivotal development in Tesco's progress towards becoming the UK's largest supermarket chain and one that fundamentally changed the country's supermarket business.[70] Tesco itself was cited in a Wall Street Journal article as using the intelligence from the Clubcard to thwart Wal-Mart's initiatives in the UK.[71]
I’ve posted Entry #417 to my weekly Valuation-Informed Indexing column at the Value Walk site. It’s called Three Comments That Reveal the Buy-and-Hold Mindset. Juicy Excerpt: My take is that Shiller really did start a revolution in our understanding of how stock investing works. Joe takes the more conventional view. He is not hotly opposed to hearing Shiller’s ideas explored, as are some of my critics. But he is not nearly as enthusiastic about the project as I am. He is complacent. He is not certain that Buy-and-Hold is the last word in investing analysis. But he does not feel any burning need to find a replacement for it. He is opened-minded about the subject but not intense about it. I think that that’s the view of most Buy-and-Holders and that that is why we will not see Valuation-Informed Indexing become more popular until a price crash causes many more investors to adopt a less complacent attitude.

The panic began again on Black Monday (October 28), with the market closing down 12.8 percent. On Black Tuesday (October 29) more than 16 million shares were traded. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost another 12 percent and closed at 198—a drop of 183 points in less than two months. Prime securities tumbled like the issues of bogus gold mines. General Electric fell from 396 on September 3 to 210 on October 29. American Telephone and Telegraph dropped 100 points. DuPont fell from a summer high of 217 to 80, United States Steel from 261 to 166, Delaware and Hudson from 224 to 141, and Radio Corporation of America (RCA) common stock from 505 to 26. Political and financial leaders at first affected to treat the matter as a mere spasm in the market, vying with one another in reassuring statements. President Hoover and Treasury Secretary Andrew W. Mellon led the way with optimistic predictions that business was “fundamentally sound” and that a great revival of prosperity was “just around the corner.” Although the Dow Jones Industrial Average nearly reached the 300 mark again in 1930, it sank rapidly in May 1930. Another 20 years would pass before the Dow average regained enough momentum to surpass the 200-point level.
It’s difficult to quantify Vashistha’s—or any astrologer’s—success rate since they don’t necessarily get client feedback on how predictions pan out. But that hasn’t prevented skilled financial advisors and money managers from seeing the practice as a way to apply big-picture logic to unpredictable markets. Especially in a secular bull market that some argue is overbought, investors are eager to integrate any data that may help them protect their money by foretelling a correction, even if the information has celestial origins.
Tesco Express shops are neighbourhood convenience shops averaging 200 square metres (2,200 sq ft), stocking mainly food with an emphasis on higher-margin products such as sweets, crisps, chocolate, biscuits, fizzy drinks and processed food (due to small shop size, and the necessity to maximize revenue per square foot) alongside everyday essentials. They are located in busy city-centre districts, small shopping precincts in residential areas, small towns and villages, and on Esso petrol station forecourts. In 2010 it became known that Tesco was operating Express pricing, charging more in their Express branches than in their regular branches. A spokesperson said that this was "because of the difference in costs of running the smaller shops".[61]
There are different methods of predicting the future - such as psychics who have psychic predictions where they actually see the future, Nostradamus was this psychic type of prophet. For my predictions I use Astrology, combined with Bible prophecy including the Book of Revelation, Nostradamus prophecies, and numerical methods. And for me there may be a psychic element also in my predictions for 2018 to 2020.
But I think the U.S. stock markets (NYSE and NASDAQ) will do better than Europe and Asia. I think worldwide economic chaos could occur during 2018 - 2019, during the End Times Period when the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse ride, with the Third Horseman being Economic Chaos. World economics will likely see wild swings, oil price instability, stock market swings in 2018 - 2019.
Le rapport de 100 pages de la SEC a été très critiqué par de nombreux spécialistes des marchés financiers. Bien que décrivant le trade de 75 000 contrats futures E-Mini, il ne nomme pas la société Waddell & Reed. Bien qu'analysant précisément la chronologie et l'origine du crash, il ne porte pas de critique concernant le high frequency trading ni même aucune attention à des pratiques de quotes stuffing qui ont eu une influence, révélée par la société Nanex.

To be able to make good decisions amid a stock market crash, investors will need to be able to remain calm. As Buffett has said, "Investing is not a game where the guy with the 160 IQ beats the guy with the 130 IQ. Once you have ordinary intelligence, what you need is the temperament to control the urges that get other people into trouble in investing."
There’s a surprising wealth of academic research on the relationship between the skies and the market. I read a half-dozen peer-reviewed papers. The most convincing was published in 2006 by three University of Michigan economists. While the effect of full moons was long thought to incur depressive and violent behavior in humans (and howling in wolves), its power over markets was a relative unknown. The paper’s findings were kind of remarkable: In a 48-country portfolio, annualized stock returns were 3 percent to 5 percent lower around a full moon than a new moon.
After all, he said, it took only 3 years for such a portfolio to recover all of its losses after the roughly 50 percent stock market decline of the last crash. But withstanding losses like those without selling any holdings took extreme fortitude. That’s why it was easier to live with a broadly diversified portfolio, with 50 percent stocks and 50 percent bonds. Such a portfolio recovered all of its losses in just one year, not three, according to data provided by Mr. Kinniry.
You might imagine that Wink and Vaisman are hoping for some real-world impact, given the mental resources they’ve dedicated to this project. But NASDANQ will be a self-sustaining economy, and the value of these memes will only exist internally. Wink and Vaisman see it as a sociological project — NASDANQ will be a visual representation of a very specific portion of our online selves. But the nature of assigning value to the things we share online means that a meme’s value will be taken personally by some. And so the backlash seems inevitable.
Plusieurs investisseurs optent pour les fonds passifs, comme les FNB et les fonds indiciels, dont les frais de gestion sont bas, afin de faire des économies… Je pense que c’est à cause des publicités vantant les produits d’investissement à bas prix, qui relèvent davantage du marketing. À mon avis, il ne faudrait pas tomber dans ce piège marketing. Se baser sur les frais de gestion pour choisir des fonds communs ou des FNB, c’est une erreur. Il faudrait regarder plutôt les rendements moyens annualisés sur une longue période par rapport à l’indice de référence.

I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Consumerism Commentary site titled Are Stock Gains and Losses Real? Juicy Excerpt: Losses suffered starting from super-high prices are never recovered. When you pay more than a fair price for stocks, a portion of your money is going to the purchase of stocks and a portion is going to the purchase of cotton-candy nothingness. Prices always return to fair value. So these price drops are not so much losses as they are the market coming to recognize phony…
Regardless of the outcome of who starts what, Russia verses USA or visa versa their will be no nuclear war as nuclear weapons don’t work. A load of hype same as moon landing as no flesh can pass thru the Van Allen radiation belts and survive. More hype the earth turns at 1600 KPH but if you travel by plane East to West and return takes the same time for the same distance.
As many other crashes, the Black Monday crash followed a major bull market in which the Dow rose by about 250% in a five-year period from 1982 through 1987. Also like many other crashes, it was preceded by a few smaller declines before major panic set in. Two of the three trading days preceding Black Monday were pretty dismal, with drops of 3.8% and 4.6%.

For 2017 I also spoke about a ‘toxic cloud over Norway’. This was wrong but I may have been seeing something closer to home here in the UK when we had a mysterious toxic cloud over the White Cliffs of Dover and an emergency evacuation of the beaches. Update: The prediction was correct. I did not see it in the News in the UK. See Independent Article here

According to much national or state legislation, a large array of fiscal obligations are taxed for capital gains. Taxes are charged by the state over the transactions, dividends and capital gains on the stock market, in particular in the stock exchanges. These fiscal obligations vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Some countries[which?] avoid taxing profits on stocks as the profits are already taxed when companies file returns, but double taxation is common at some level in many countries.
Le crash éclair du 6 mai 2010 a d'abord été expliqué comme une réaction à la crise de la dette souveraine grecque10 avant d'être rapidement imputé à une erreur de saisie de la part d'un opérateur de marché (une erreur communément appelée dans le jargon financier « fat finger » (gros doigt en français), correspondant à la saisie erronée d'une quantité largement supérieure au montant voulu). La CNBC ainsi que d'autres sources journalistiques ont déclaré qu'un trader avait saisi un ordre de vente de titres Procter & Gamble avec un « B » pour billions (milliards en français) au lieu de « M » pour millions. Cette information a été jugée crédible, le titre Procter & Gamble entrant dans la composition de l'indice Dow Jones ayant vu son cours chuter de plus de 37 %. La banque américaine Citigroup fut désignée comme responsable de cette erreur de saisie.
Uranus in Taurus vanishes from 6th November 2018 but he returns to the money sign, on March 7th 2019. Anything or anybody people assumed had ‘gone away’ has not. In fact, the FTSE will show dramas in March 2019. Why? Uranus suddenly jumps to 0 Taurus and begins to move closer to that 0-1 pattern. The Nodes, Jupiter and Chiron also dance around 0-1 degrees and also 24 degrees, which as we’ve seen are hotspots from Tokyo to Dublin – from the United States to the United Kingdom. April 2019 also sees financial spikes as Uranus moves to 1, 2 Taurus and both Jupiter and Pluto dance around 24 degrees. Very close to 23rd April 2019 the FTSE is in an intense spotlight. Wednesday 8th, Thursday 9th May 2019 challenge the world economy. Change or stay stuck. This is around a year away as I post this, but I will keep updating you from May 2019.
Thank you for all! I got intrigued by my first encounter with your work a few months ago when I was googling something Uranus and came upon your prognostication from a year ago about this Uranus-Taurus passage. I was hooked! My husband and I have been in flux for nearly six years now and have had all manner of our home situation bandied about, along with complete career changes. It’s been unreal yet has forced us to deep spiritual roots. Anyway, any insights about the future of our homes/homelife is appreciated…. much gratitude for your forthright, bold writing and insights.
Another not so great thing going on is a Saturn return happening in the Dow’s chart. This happens to all of us between the ages of 27 to 30 years old and if you’ve been a good girl or boy, good things manifest, your career takes off but so does your responsability. This is a manifesting aspect, a maturing aspect, making people or entities reap the karma of their past, so if you’ve been bad, it’s not a good time. It’s not uncommon for people who have lived a reckless life to die during this aspect or become very ill or near death.
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.
But I think an event frequently discussed in Biblical Prophecy called "The Rapture" will not occur, because this is a misinterpretation of Biblical prophecy by innumerable writers and preachers. Supposedly "The Rapture" would occur during or just before the rule of the Antichrist, and would be an instantaneous disappearance of millions of Christians around the world, leaving other people behind, and it is described as a joyous event where they will all go to heaven together. I think this will not happen, because these writers and preachers are not correctly interpreting Bible prophecy. I think we are in the End Times, but the Rapture will not occur. Or it could be that The Rapture is caused by a CERN LHC created Black Hole eating earth and all the people on it. In 2015 the LHC was turned on again with greatly increased power, making creation of a Black Hole more likely sometime in the future. Or The Rapture could be related to aliens, possibly a mass alien abduction of millions of people, possibly related to an alien invasion of earth that could occur within a few years, see the calendar page on it.

The magazines work months in advance so I made my predictions for 2014 around September and October. Soon after making this one there was a huge fire in Australia. So maybe I was seeing this – but I still feel that what I saw was really unprecedented. Similarly I note that bright light in the sky may be me ‘seeing’ Comet ISON but in my vision I saw something far far brighter in the sky. It would illuminate the whole sky – brighter than the moon.

The AFR has got its hands on the thoughts of Nouriel Roubini via a mob called The Project Syndicate, which is headquartered in Prague, Czechoslovakia, of all places. And this is how it describes itself: “A syndicate is a group of individuals or organizations combined to promote a common interest. In the case of Project Syndicate, these individuals are activists, Nobel laureates, economists, political thinkers, business leaders, and the likes from around the world.”
According to data from Equifax in August 2017, deep subprime auto loans -- i.e., loans with an origination VantageScore of 530 or less, on a scale of 300 to 850 -- have hit delinquency rates that hadn’t been seen since 2007. Interestingly enough, when examining the auto market as a whole, no red flags arise in terms of delinquency rates. But if you focus solely on subprime and deep subprime loans, they’ve been deteriorating of late.
