If you haven't been periodically rebalancing your portfolio, you may be invested more aggressively than you think. Someone who started out with a mix of 70% stocks and 30% bonds when this bull market began back in 2009 and simply re-invested all gains in whatever investment generated them, would have something close to a portfolio 90% stocks and 10% bonds today.
We would rather see that signal reversed at least near term. Also, the 50-day moving average has dropped below the 200-day moving average and both have rolled over. That must be reversed as well. Politically all metals have been smashed recently on news of Trump tariff activity. I believe this reaction is temporary but require better technical stock action to take a more aggressive stance.
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…
I recently engaged in a discussion of the Efficient Market Theory at the Early Retirement Extreme Forum. The thread is titled Is Efficient Market a Theory, Hypothesis, Fact, Law or Notion? Juicy Excerpt #1: I want to be fair in my descriptions. I don't want to underplay the extent to which I believe the evidence has been misinterpreted. I believe that this misinterpretation has caused a great deal of misery. So I want to be firm on this point. But I also want to be fair. I don't want to be…
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.
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.
You still need to use Jupiter on your Hygiea at 16 Scorpio in your Eighth House of finance, property and business. In mythology, Jupiter was actually her great-grandfather! This conjunction happens in the final quarter of 2018, from September onwards. I am seeing quite a few people with Scorpio placements late degrees, so I am beginning to wonder about the European Autumn/Australasian Spring. I think you’re going to see some new bank, tax law or similar spring up. It would help you to protect the future so look seriously at it. Hygiea is really about ‘prevention is better than cure.’ Insurance offers would be another obvious outcome.
Le fonds Fidelity Special Situations est composé de 54% d’actions canadiennes et 40% d’actions américaines de petites et moyennes capitalisations (petites et moyennes entreprises qui versent généralement peu de dividendes ou aucun). À mon avis, c’est risqué compte tenu de votre âge. Il faudrait constituer un portefeuille équilibré contenant 40-50% d’actions et 50-60% d’obligations. Le rendement réaliste et prudent à long terme est 5%. Souvenez-vous de la règle de Buffett : ne pas perdre votre capital. Le fonds Fidelity Special Situations pourrait être approprié pour un investisseur qui a un horizon de placement à long terme (plus de 10 ans).
Ce que vous espérez de vos investissements a bien sûr une incidence dans votre prise de risque. À titre d’exemple, si vous voulez réduire votre horaire de travail, il vous faudra miser sur des placements sûrs qui vous offrent un rendement plus modeste, mais régulier (ex : dividendes). Donc, le niveau de risque sera plus modéré. Or, si vous êtes jeune et que vous voulez vous bâtir un « fond de liberté », vous pouvez vous permettre de viser la croissance rapide en assumant plus de risques.
America, Anaconda, and Isis: When your GDP growth is higher than anyone expected, ISIS is on the run, the stock market is skyrocketing, and China is cooperating with you against North Korea, but the media still says your presidency is a failure. Despite historic Democrat obstructionism, President Trump has worked with Congress to pass more legislation in his first 100 days than any President since Truman, appointed a Supreme Court Justice, withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, dismantling Obama-Era Regulations, President Trump Has Reduced The Debt By Over $100 Billion, Illegal crossings from border down 61%, Stock market has gained over 3 trillion dollars since he was electedBest numbers from small businesses since 1984, Saved jobs from going overseas such as intel, wal-mart, exxon mobil, carrier, ford, general motors, fiat chrysler, sprint, one web, and softbank.

Also, investments and business dealings with Russia should be avoided. Europe and in particular Germany, which are increasing economic and political connections with Russia, I think are making a big mistake that will be regretted when Putin turns against Europe in the future. Putin is evil, but Europe will be fooled by him. Watch out for a mother bear (Russia) that has lost its cubs (Russia's empire), it can be an angry mother bear. I think Russia's economy will actually grow under Putin, but I think Russia will turn very dangerous and angry towards the West within a few years.
Governments and economists have discovered that these outbreaks can be fought. They can be fought by replacing the lost spending directly (that is, by having the government pick up the slack) but also by persuading everyone that their worry is misplaced, that things are actually fine, and that they should go back to being cheerful and optimistic. Central banks do this by having public policy targets that they promise to hit and by announcing the policy steps they take to hit them (like changes in interest rates). Keeping an economy out of recession, in other words, is in large part a matter of psychology. It is about coordinating everyone’s expectations, so that everyone believes the economy will continue to chug along—and that any stumble will quickly and adeptly be managed by governments and central banks.
(13) Earthquakes and Tidal waves. There could be steadily increasing earthquakes and volcanoes in 2018 - 2019. Especially after the CERN LHC was turned on again at higher power in 2015. There is also a volcano in the Canary Islands off Africa that could collapse in a few years, producing a giant tidal wave that could hit the coasts of Africa, Spain and Portugal, the U.S. East Coast, and the Carribean; see this page on King James Bible Code matrices on it. Another place there could be a giant tidal wave is from an undersea earthquake fault off the Northwest U.S., that could have a magnitude 9 earthquake causing a mega tsunami hitting Northern California, Oregon, Washington State, British Columbia, Alaska, Hawaii, and Japan. In June 2005 there were Northern California earthquakes near that under water fault zone, off Northern California and Oregon and Washington State, that brings up the possibility of a giant tidal wave occurring there, or the San Andreas fault could slip in Southern California or Northern California, hitting hard Southern California and Los Angeles or San Francisco.
“The kingdom affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it, whether by threatening to impose economic sanctions, using political pressures or repeating false accusations,” the government said in a statement released to Saudi media. “The Kingdom also affirms that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action.”
Set forth below is the text of a Guest Blog Entry that I recently submitted to my friend "Pop" at the Pop Economics blog. Pop asked that I take a different focus and on Saturday I submitted a different version. So I thought I would set forth here the language of the initial take. It's entitled "Valuation-Informed Investing Is Risk-Diminished Investing." My name is Rob Bennett. I am the author of a Google Knol entitled “Why Buy-and-Hold Investing Can Never Work” and argue for an…
There are several basic strategies for using astrology with stock market investing. The first, and most important is obtain the first trade data of a stock, ETF, currency, etc. and cast a horoscope for that time and place. Over time, this chart can then be analyzed with respect to transits, progressions, and dashas in order to ascertain the likely price movements of the stock.
It’s not life-threatening but maybe something like a perforated bowel – serious but not terminal. A Trump family member has a near-fatal accident. (CORRECT: 10/10 was this what I ‘saw’ or is there more to come? This happened on 17th October 2018 soon after these predictions made. See the Independent: “Melania Trump’s plane forced to land after ‘haze of smoke’ spotted.“
I do not hold positions in these investments. No recommendations are made by me one way or the other. If you're an investor, you'd want to look much deeper into each of these situations. You can lose money trading or investing in stocks. Always do your own independent research, due diligence and seek professional advice from a licensed investment advisor.
Il y a tellement de fausses croyances par rapport au courtage en ligne. Un peu à l’image du marché immobilier, on dit que c’est extrêmement risqué d’acheter une maison sans courtier immobilier. À mon avis, une fois bien informé, on peut tout faire soi-même et épargner des milliers de dollars. Il suffit d’y aller progressivement en respectant sa zone de confort.
On Black Monday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 38.33 points to 260, a drop of 12.8%. The deluge of selling overwhelmed the ticker tape system that normally gave investors the current prices of their shares. Telephone lines and telegraphs were clogged and were unable to cope. This information vacuum only led to more fear and panic. The technology of the New Era, previously much celebrated by investors, now served to deepen their suffering.
In a 2003 paper by Vissing-Jørgensen attempts to explain disproportionate rates of participation along wealth and income groups as a function of fixed costs associated with investing. Her research concludes that a fixed cost of $200 per year is sufficient to explain why nearly half of all U.S. households do not participate in the market. Participation rates have been shown to strongly correlate with education levels, promoting the hypothesis that information and transaction costs of market participation are better absorbed by more educated households. Behavioral economists Harrison Hong, Jeffrey Kubik and Jeremy Stein suggest that sociability and participation rates of communities have a statistically significant impact on an individual’s decision to participate in the market. Their research indicates that social individuals living in states with higher than average participation rates are 5% more likely to participate than individuals that do not share those characteristics. This phenomenon also explained in cost terms. Knowledge of market functioning diffuses through communities and consequently lowers transaction costs associated with investing.

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. 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.
En effet c’est impressionnant, et c’est un autre regret, qui est en partie dû à mon écoute des conseils financiers: j’ai trop misé sur les obligations / dépôts à terme dans mes comptes enregistrés, alors que si j’avais plutôt utilisé mes comptes REER et CELI (surtout CELI), ils auraient gagné en « espace » .. ainsi rendu à la retraite, au moment où ça fait du sens d’avoir des obligations, tu as beaucoup d’espace pour les mettre dans le CELI, à l’abri total de l’impôt.
The smooth functioning of all these activities facilitates economic growth in that lower costs and enterprise risks promote the production of goods and services as well as possibly employment. In this way the financial system is assumed to contribute to increased prosperity, although some controversy exists as to whether the optimal financial system is bank-based or market-based.
The Fibonacci number sequence since 1932 is nearing an end. The numerical ratio is found throughout the natural world as a fundamental structural relationship in bee hives, leaves, snowflakes, etc. The sequence also correlates with major economic downturns such as 1987, 2000, 2008, 2013 (false), and 2016. 2018-2020 constitute the last three consecutive years before the series repeats. 2018 and 2019 could, therefore, mark brief but significant corrections leading to a severe depression in 2019 or 2020.
In the middle of the 13th century, Venetian bankers began to trade in government securities. In 1351 the Venetian government outlawed spreading rumors intended to lower the price of government funds. Bankers in Pisa, Verona, Genoa and Florence also began trading in government securities during the 14th century. This was only possible because these were independent city-states not ruled by a duke but a council of influential citizens. Italian companies were also the first to issue shares. Companies in England and the Low Countries followed in the 16th century.
Preparation is key. The best time to react to any potential market crash is before it occurs. Not after. Reacting in the moment can lead to expensive and costly mistakes. For example, if you saw that socks were on sale, you'd be more interested in buying socks. However, when it comes to stocks, people take a different view. When stocks are on sale, as can occur in a market crash, then often investors' instincts are to run away. Thinking about your strategy ahead of time and writing it down, just in a couple of paragraphs, can be key. Then if the markets do crash, make sure to look at that document before you act.
I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Free from Broke site titled Playing Dominion vs. Playing the Market. Juicy Excerpt: It’s possible to finish a game of Dominion in 30 minutes. Newcomers to the game make dumb mistakes the first time they play. They learn from those mistakes. They get better. Investing is a game that extends over 60 years of your life (if you start at age 25 and die at age 85). By the time we figure the game out, it’s…
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.
September 2017. The Cassini Saturn space probe crashed into Saturn/Satan. Cassini's connection to Putin: Putin first rose to power on August 9 1999. Also then, the day of the Astrology Grand Cross in the sky: August 18 1999, was the day after Cassini, carrying Plutonium, passed close to earth. And 1999 has 666 upside-down, 666 being the number of the Antichrist in Revelation 13. This August 1999 Grand Cross, which is one of the most amazing astrological alignments ever seen in history, consisted of: the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the sign of Leo, Mars and the Moon in Scorpio with Pluto close by in Sagittarius, Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus, and Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius. If Scorpio is considered to be the Eagle, and Aquarius the man, then we have the four beasts seen in Revelation 4 that sit at the throne in heaven, that have the faces of an eagle, a man, a lion, and a calf. This seems to indicate an important time for mankind; I think it may also relate to the rise to power of the Antichrist in year 2000 as Russian President Putin, especially since there was a cross pattern. Also, note that August 13, 1999 was Friday the 13th, said to be an unlucky day. Also note that August 9, 1999, was the 30th anniversary of the Charles Manson group's murder of Sharon Tate and others in Los Angeles, significant because of the Charles Manson group's Satanic-like cult.
In November 2007, Tesco sued a Thai academic and a former minister for civil libel and criminal defamation, insisting that the two pay £1.6 million and £16.4 million plus two years' imprisonment respectively. They have been alleged to have misstated that Tesco's Thai market amounts to 37% of its global revenues, amongst criticism of Tesco's propensity to put small retailers out of business.
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.
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.
The equity market actually peaked in late 2007, and appeared to be undergoing a correction in early 2008. However, after a brief recovery in April 2008 failed to reach the all-time highs, the market fell for the following 11 months. By March 2009 the S&P 500 index had fallen more than 55%. Unprecedented action by the Federal Reserve to stimulate the economy and market led to the beginning of the bull market that has continued until today.
Page 12a: Is there Life outside Earth in our Solar System - on Mars, Europa, or Titan? Are Flying Saucers and Aliens for real? Men in Black. W56 UFOs and Aliens. The Nazca Lines in Peru, a sign of Alien Visitors? President Obama and Aliens. George Adamski who saw Aliens and UFOs in the 1950s. The missing Flight 370 in 2014, a possible UFO connection?
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.
Right now, Republicans have control of the legislative branch of the U.S. government, albeit by a slim margin in the Senate. Having a majority of seats in both houses of Congress, and a Republican President in Donald Trump, increases the probability of legislation being passed. Not to mention, the GOP is often viewed as a party that’s friendlier to businesses. This Republican majority is responsible for passing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December 2017, which slashed the peak marginal corporate income tax rate to 21% from 35%.
