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]
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]
Thank you. I don’t get to my desk as often as I like, when I am travelling, but I have an opportunity to sit down with comments and questions this week. Your stepfather’s chart is missing from this and you need to have all the charts there if you are to figure out a three-way property or financial agreement. You also have Fortuna at 1 Scorpio in your Eighth House of houses, apartments, bank accounts, and the rest. In the middle of May, Uranus moves to 0 Taurus, right opposite your Fortuna, for the first time in your life. He will slowly cross to 1 Taurus and for most of the rest of this year, you will need to deal with a situation which is by its very nature unpredictable, erratic and hard to call – in terms of any previous experience you may have had. Just be aware of that. It’s quite true that Jupiter with all his solutions and abundant opportunities will cross your Mars at 20 Scorpio this year too and that’s worth using, but you do need to be a total realist about Uranus in Taurus. We have not seen this since the Thirties.
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.
We can see that Mercury dashas do not generally correlate with higher prices and fall well below the +6%/year historical norm for stocks. The best performing period occurred during Jupiter-Mercury but even there, Mercury revealed its bearish tendencies since it marked the biggest crash in history. The overall positive price effect from 1985-1988 was largely the result of Jupiter's overriding influence. It is perhaps no coincidence that the greatest bull market in history occurred during the Jupiter dasha from 1981 to 1997. The only other strongly positive period occurred during the Sun dasha. Here we can see the combined effect of two 11th house planets (gains!) fending off whatever bearish influences they encountered. Looking ahead to Mercury's next major dasha period which begins in 2016, it's hard to be optimistic about the stock market's performance.
This will work out, but you are dealing with a classic Aries-Taurus type. This person has a head full of steam, as they say in Australia. Part ram, part bull. The bull digs his heels in the ground and will not move, on pure principle, and the Aries wants to win – to compete – to do battle if necessary. You have also bought into the fight unfortunately because you have Juno at 24 Libra in the Seventh House of partners and opponents, so you tend to ‘wed’ yourself fully both to partners – but also to enemies. It can honestly be like tying a knot with someone who is against you. Of course you invested in this energetically because you have a huge sense of justice and fairness (Libra) and cannot bear things to be so lopsided! You also have your Nodes in Aries and Libra so I suspect some past life entanglement here. You have been a soldier, captain, guard – and similar roles – in many lifetimes and the idea of ‘fighting the good fight’ is embedded in who you are. I am very sorry you are being put this, but you have committed to him. The Nodes always show karma and I do wonder (if I had his full chart) if he isn’t your mirror and vice versa. I wouldn’t normally suggest all this soul-searching, but your Aries-Libra nodes (and in fact all your Aries-Libra placements) have been well and truly hit by Uranus since 2011, repeatedly, and I think a great deal of what you are dealing with here is karmic in nature. So if you change yourself, and change your approach/attitude, he changes in turn. Chiron enters Aries soon and will go over these same degrees, across your Aries and Libra placements, so you have to take that into account. The unpredictable, erratic nature of the whole situation will fade by 2019 as Uranus leaves Aries for good, but Chiron in Aries is still here. It may help you to sit down with your Astrology Oracle cards when you have some time and space and really go through everything very deeply, particularly as I don’t have the chart of the other person who is with you in this matter. And of course his/her karma is also tightly woven in. Finally, I will say that Uranus in Taurus is ‘a revolution in values’ and the core meaning of our values is what we will and will not sell our soul for; who and what we consider to be priceless; how we ‘price’ things we cannot buy like peace of mind. Uranus in Taurus, for all three of you, may very well result in a brand new calculation. Uranus is about being free. What price release and relief?
So, the way to prepare for a market crash is not necessarily to artfully predict in advance, and step aside when the crash comes. That's virtually impossible. Rather, it can be useful to consider your overall investment strategy ahead of time, so that you know you could stomach the next inevitable crash when it comes. Ideally, through proper diversification and forethought you'll have an investment approach that will enable you to ride out a crash, rather than turning you into another panicked seller. If you only act on these issues when the crash comes, it will likely be too late.
A potential buyer bids a specific price for a stock, and a potential seller asks a specific price for the same stock. Buying or selling at the market means you will accept any ask price or bid price for the stock. When the bid and ask prices match, a sale takes place, on a first-come, first-served basis if there are multiple bidders at a given price.
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.
In this web site I have tried to show how astrology, new age methods, religion, bible prophecy, the King James Bible Code, and mythology can be used in a combined way, to explain the world today and to predict the future. I try to find a middle way, between Christianity and New Age, because I think that is where the truth is. A middle way, as in Buddhism where a middle way between extremes is emphasized. And as in Hinduism, I have looked to Astrology and the stars for guidance. And the idea of a unifying religion is advocated here, as the Baha'i faith has a goal of unifying mankind; Baha'i is one of the most enlightened of world religions; begun in Iran, its world headquarters is in Haifa, Israel. And as in the Kabbalah, the spiritual and New Age branch of Judaism, I have searched for the hidden meanings in the symbolism of the Bible, and its numerical patterns.
I have posted a Guest Blog Entry at the My Personal Finance Journey blog. It is called Investors Who Ignore Valuations Are Like Overeaters Who Ignore the Risk of Heart Disease. Juicy Excerpt: Raddr examines the numbers and concludes that: “The poor retiree’s real net worth has dropped nearly two-thirds (from $1,000 to $367) in only 11 years, and he is now withdrawing about 11 percent of his portfolio per year, which is a recipe for disaster even if the market heads up big-time from…
Together, the 1929 stock market crash and the Great Depression formed the largest financial crisis of the 20th century.[30] The panic of October 1929 has come to serve as a symbol of the economic contraction that gripped the world during the next decade.[31] The falls in share prices on October 24 and 29, 1929 were practically instantaneous in all financial markets, except Japan.[32]
Two things are gathering speed as I read your question. Malcolm Turnbull the Australian Prime Minister – a Scorpio – is about to see what it feels like to have Uranus (the revolution, the shock) move into his Seventh House of rivals, enemies and opponents, as well as partners – his wife Lucy but also his Deputy. This obviously happens with a bang, crash, wallop in the middle of May. Tony Abbott is also a Scorpio. The PM also has a Taurus name – TurnBULL and actually, the literal translation of Uranus in Taurus the bull, is ‘the bull is forced to turn.’ This means gold bullion and bull markets, symbolically, but also the cattle market. I am sure you know independent politicians are pushing for an end to the live export trade because of its cruelty. Put all that together and very close to May 16th, some will gain an awful lot, and some will lose. Massive highs and lows in Australian business, government and on the share markets. It just depends what side of history you’re on. Watch Julie Bishop.
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.
I've been a stockbroker for more than twenty years so I approached the book with experience in the investment market. I thought I knew a great deal about the causes and course of the '29 Crash but this book certainly opened my eyes. I had heard of famous men like William Durant and Richard Whitney but I never knew the wide ranging courses of their careers. One of the main lessons I drew from the book is the comparison between the actions of both the elite and the commoners in 1929 vs. those of the elite and the commoners in the Great Recession of 2008 to the present. Recommend this book highly to anybody interested in economic history or the history of the USA in the 20th Century.
However, we do life in less-than-traditional times – the effects of the extraordinary monetary policies that the Fed undertook in response to the recession are still working their way though the system, so despite the fact that it’s been almost a decade since the last recession, we quite likely still have room to run. A very wise man once told me that “the bull market [when stocks fairly aggressively go up] doesn’t end when the Fed raises rates, the bull market ends when the Fed STOPS raising rates.” Chairwoman Yellen & Co. have only just begun lifting off the proverbial gas pedal from the Great Recession, and my guess, as well as that of many others, is that we have a ways to go before a full on crash next occurs.
In 2000, Weingarten was hired to provide astrological services to a company called UN Dollars Corp. The guy who hired him, Edward Durante (who also has gone by several aliases), was convicted in 2001 for a scheme to inflate the value of stocks before dumping them and cashing in. Weingarten settled a complaint involving UN Dollars with the Securities and Exchange Commission for $15,000 and admitted no wrongdoing. He wasn’t accused of conspiring with Durante, but of hyping the stock in his newsletter and investing his clients’ money in the company without indicating that he had been paid with 250,000 shares of UN Dollars, though he did say on his website that the company was a client. Weingarten says he can’t really talk about the case, citing a nondisclosure agreement, but insists he settled it only because his wife said she’d divorce him if he fought the case in court.
Because they’ve got the frackers sitting on them. Every time oil gets back to $50 or $60, the frackers start cranking up again, and then they get excess supply. The Saudi princes are saying we’ll never see $100 oil again, and I agree — or at least not for a very, very long time. I see oil at pretty much between $20 and $60 for decades. And we won’t see natural gas at $14 again — because of fracking.

Beginning in 1997 when Terry Leahy took over as CEO, Tesco began marketing itself using the phrase "The Tesco Way" to describe the company's core purposes, values, principles, and goals[101] This phrase became the standard marketing speak for Tesco as it expanded domestically and internationally under Leahy's leadership, implying a shift by the company to focus on people, both customers and employees.[102]
Mars will enter Poorva Phalguni constellation on 8th. Demand of Peanuts, Coconuts, flex and betel root will rise in Southern states of India. Sun will conjoin Saturn on 16th, when it enters Sagittarius sign. The conjunction of two inimical planets will definitely create lots of volatile situations in business and political scenario. Cotton, Textiles, Steel, Gold, Silver, Cooking oil and Ghee related companies will see hike in demand. Mars will enter Pisces on 23rd. The buying trend in the stocks of grains and groceries related companies will decline. In the last week of the year, the long term investors will take interest in the buying the stocks of Marico, Britannia, Tata Steel, TBZ and Voltas etc.
That is when a ‘swaroopa’ appeared before him and said what can be briefly summarized as follows: He was the Aksharateeta Purushottama, Shri Krishna! Shri Krishna then gave him certain directions and revealed certain truths that are contained in TV. Thus the 5000 year old text composed by the revered Vedavyas, especially for enlightening the Parama-hamsas [most spiritually evolved souls] expected to appear in world later in Kaliyuga, truly turned out to be the forerunner of manifestation of TV via Shri Devachandraji and his chosen disciple Mahamati Prananath. It was through the latter that TV containing 18758 divine verses in several languages of 17th century India manifested during the period 1657-94 AD.

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.


These stocks are known as high beta stocks, as they outperform on the way up and underperform on the way down. During a bull market, these high beta stocks are often the stocks that perform best. As a result they will grow into the largest positions in your portfolio. That’s why it’s a good idea to rebalance your portfolio and make sure the weighting of these “high beta” stocks aren’t too high. Here some more ways to prepare for a stock market crash:

Miranda Marquit recently posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Investor Junkie blog called How to Invest Using Valuation-Informed Indexing: Interview with Rob Bennett. Juicy Excerpt: Rob Bennett has been advocating valuation informed indexing for years, and his insistence on it has even had him kicked off investing forums, including the Bogleheads forum. “Buy and hold is intellectually dead,” he says. “It’s not practically dead, since plenty of investors still use the theory, but…

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.
Fifth, growth in the rest of the world will likely slow down – more so as other countries will see fit to retaliate against US protectionism. China must slow its growth to deal with overcapacity and excessive leverage; otherwise a hard landing will be triggered. And already-fragile emerging markets will continue to feel the pinch from protectionism and tightening monetary conditions in the US.
