The swoon set tongues to wagging, about its cause and likely effect. There can be no knowing about the former. Markets may have worried that rising wages would crimp profits or trigger a faster pace of growth-squelching interest-rate increases, but a butterfly flapping its wings in Indonesia might just as well be to blame. There is little more certainty regarding the latter. Commentators have been quick to pull out the cliches: that “the stock market is not the economy”, and that “stocks have predicted nine out of the past five recessions”. These points have merit. A big move in stock prices can signify some change in economic fundamentals, but it can just as easily signify nothing at all. For those not invested in the market, or whose investments consist mostly of retirement savings plunked into index funds, Monday’s crash matters about as much as Sunday’s Super Bowl result.
“The culture itself is very resistant to legitimacy,” Wink says. “It’s just this general feeling that going big is a death sentence. But in other communities, for example people who only visit Facebook, to them it’s not like, ‘Oh if I see this it’s dead,’ it’s like ‘Oh this is just the beginning and I’m going to be seeing this a lot more often.’” Due to their prevalence of crossover on different platforms, Wink noted that “Memes have a tendency to resurge… you’ll have a meme gain popularity, die out in a month, and then a year later suddenly it’s very popular again. Kermit has had three iterations that have died and then come back.”
I've posted a Guest Blog Entry at the Control Your Cash site titled Index Funds Don't Work in Bear Markets. Juicy Except: This approach (Valuation-Informed Indexing) sounds so easy and so rewarding and so rooted in common sense. Why doesn’t Mike Piper follow it? Why doesn’t everybody follow it? Stock investing is an intensely emotional endeavor. When stocks were priced at three times fair value in 2000, the numbers on the bottom line of the last page of our portfolio statements…
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. 
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.
Blague à part, même si vous gérez vous-même vos placements, je pense que les planificateurs financiers ont encore un rôle à jouer. Ils peuvent vous encadrer quant aux aspects légaux, aux assurances, à la fiscalité, à la gestion du risque, à la planification de la retraite, à la succession et aux placements (pour ceux qui ont les accréditations nécessaires). Bien qu’ils soient payés à la commission sur la vente de produits financiers, leurs rôles débordent largement de celui du simple conseiller en placement. Ainsi, les frais de gestion et le rendement des placements ne sont pas les seuls éléments à considérer. Plusieurs services valables, qui méritent une rémunération, sont également offerts.
Tesco's financial crisis of 2014[163] led to their reducing their capital expenditure on new shops, which led to the boarding up of new unopened shops in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire[164] and Immingham, Lincolnshire.[165] The controversial Chatteris mothballing caused local criticism after the £22 million project had re-routed a river and built a controversial roundabout and underpass, whereas the much anticipated Immingham development demolished a local shopping centre and closed several local shops to enable its construction. The impending arrival of Tesco also contributed to the Co-operative's decision to close their shop in the town.[166] Tesco's announcing the indefinite delay in their shop opening left the town of around 15,000 inhabitants without a supermarket. Tesco went ahead with the opening of shops in Little Lever,[167] Dunfermline[168] and Rotherham.[169]
The FTSE was ‘born’ with Psyche at 0 Capricorn, the sign which rules big business and government. She also has Pluto at 1 Scorpio. As soon as Uranus moves to  Taurus for the first time in most people’s lives, he will trine Psyche and oppose Pluto. That is a massive moment for the FTSE. In fact it’s historic. It’s confronting and it will change the balance of power for some time to come, as Uranus will return to this position after the initial May 2018 hit.
Since the early 1990s, many of the largest exchanges have adopted electronic 'matching engines' to bring together buyers and sellers, replacing the open outcry system. Electronic trading now accounts for the majority of trading in many developed countries. Computer systems were upgraded in the stock exchanges to handle larger trading volumes in a more accurate and controlled manner. The SEC modified the margin requirements in an attempt to lower the volatility of common stocks, stock options and the futures market. The New York Stock Exchange and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange introduced the concept of a circuit breaker. The circuit breaker halts trading if the Dow declines a prescribed number of points for a prescribed amount of time. In February 2012, the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) introduced single-stock circuit breakers.[66]
Généralement, les portefeuilles proposés par les conseillers robots sont constitués de fonds négociés en bourse (FNB). Par exemple, Wealthsimple, un robot très populaire, investit votre argent dans des fonds Vanguard. Or, ces derniers commandent également des frais de gestion. Ainsi, même si Wealthsimple annonce des frais de 0.5%, en réalité, il faut ajouter les frais reliés aux FNB de 0.2% en moyenne. Au final, on parle plutôt de 0.7% de frais.

I’ve been listening to psychic Lisa Caza’s 2018 predictions. The similarities with your predictions are uncanny. She makes one prediction about Big Ben being in the news this year but she could not be specific. That reminded me of your Big Ben prediction and the possibility that something really will happen to Big Ben this year, and what you saw may have nothing to do with the Grenfell Tower fire after all. I understand the clocktower is being repaired at the moment. Either the repairs could go wrong or a criminal posing as a builder could sabotage something. I wonder what you think.

Your MC or Midheaven is in Pisces in the Twelfth House using the Natural House system. Your vocation is an escape from the real world, so it may be the spiritual path, or the scientific one (quantum physics is an escape from reality just as meditation or astrology is). Neptune is in Sagittarius in the Ninth House so academia or religion/spirituality does seem very likely as your career or unpaid calling.
Also, note that the woman is holding a cup full of abominations and filthiness - the cup could be the CERN LHC particle accelerator, which is circular in shape, and the abominations could be the strange and dangerous particles the LHC creates, including Black Holes and Strangelets that could destroy earth. Note that the CERN LHC had a large increase in power in 2015, making creation of a black hole more likely.
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.

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…
Bonjour je voudrais investir a la bouse. Je vis a montreal. J’y connais rien, mais j’ai deja eu des regrets de ne pas avoir deja passez a l’action. Savez vous les facons de commencer a Montreal ? J’ai lu sur les stocks enligne, et j’ai vaguement entendu parler que certaines banques ont des comptes fait pour ca, certains sont plus libre et moins chere. Avez connaissance, des bonnes direction a conseiller s.v.p. Je veut profiter de la vague des stock du canabis. J’aimais bien Tesla y’a 3 ans mais je n’ai pas poser les actions necessaires pour investir.
Despite being in a recession, Tesco made record profits for a British retailer in the year to February 2010, during which its underlying pre-tax profits increased by 10.1% to £3.4 billion. Tesco then planned to create 16,000 new jobs, 9,000 in the UK.[107] In 2011 the retailer reported its poorest six-monthly UK sales figures for 20 years, attributed to consumers' reduced non-food spending and a growth in budget rivals.[108]
If you could only listen to one person's advice during a stock market crash, let that person be famed investor, Warren Buffett. Not only will the Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B) (NYSE: BRK-A) chairman and CEO's advice serve you well, but his knack for keeping a clear head -- and even getting a bit greedy (more on that later) -- when everyone else is selling, may make his the only advice you need to navigate uncertain times.
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..
La plupart du temps, les robot-conseillers utilisent des FNB. Et, les FNB sont composés de milliers de titres d’entreprises. Ainsi, ils reflètent le rendement du marché dans son ensemble. Ce rendement est similaire à celui des fonds communs, sur le long terme. Je me méfierais donc sérieusement des planificateurs financiers qui disent pouvoir constamment battre le marché. Donc, à mon avis, cet argument ne tient pas la route.
What we’re looking for is the ‘Venn diagram’ of overlapping dates when we see Uranus hit Scorpio-Taurus at the same degrees – or close by – in the charts of a number of key nations or sharemarkets. What we’re also looking for is another ‘Venn’ overlap of Jupiter (bargains galore – and lucky for some speculators) in Scorpio, also hitting key degrees across Scorpio-Taurus. This is standard astrology.
À mon humble avis, vos rendements espérés sont trop optimistes. En moyenne, le marché boursier a généré un rendement d’environ 7% à très long-terme. Toutefois, si vous désirez décaisser annuellement 40K$ (j’imagine que vous parlez de dollars), sur un avoir net de 450k$, ceci représente un rendement de presque 9% (sans compter les impôts sur le revenu). Peu importe la stratégie d’investissement ou la plateforme choisie, à mon avis, c’est serré.
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've posted Entry #2 to my weekly column at the Balance Junkie site. It's titled Why We Are Afraid to Acknowledge the True Cause of the Economic Crisis. Juicy Except: My boys (Timothy, age 12, and Robert, age 9) and I were watching a DVD of the old television series I’ll Fly Away a few days ago. The series tells the story of the civil rights struggle of the early 1960s and how it affected the people of a small town in South Carolina. There’s one scene that we watched that I believe…
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.

Vashistha is among the latest in a long string of high-profile prognosticators to work in the financial world: Though the practice has ancient roots, it truly took off during the scientific revolution and has guided certain fiscal luminaries ever since. W.D. Gann, a financial astrologer born in Texas in 1875, became a legendary trader; even J.P. Morgan and Charles Schwab consulted astrologers, notably Evangeline Adams, throughout the early 20th century. "Millionaires don't need astrology—billionaires do," Morgan supposedly quipped.

Many of the financial products or instruments that we see today emerged during a relatively short period. In particular, merchants and bankers developed what we would today call securitization. Mutual funds and various other forms of structured finance that still exist today emerged in the 17th and 18th centuries in Holland."

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.
Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site: And someday, Jack and Wade will come crying to you, saying that they have been wrong about you all along and will plead to work with you to solve the economic crisis. They will also be the first to help you get the $500 million you so richly deserve. You will be featured on the front page of the New York Times, books will be written about you and every financial conference will want you as the keynote speaker. Meanwhile, all the goons will be headed to prison, with John Greaney and Mel Lindauer facing the longest prison terms for their part in the massive cover up, death threats, etc…………………………….and then you will wake up from your dream and return to reality. And Bogle will get credit for all of his many genuine contributions because he really is a giant in this field. And Wade will be awarded the Nobel prize that he so richly deserves. And we will pull out of the Buy-and-Hold Crisis and enter a period of prolonged economic growth. And millions of middle-class people will learn how to invest in way that provides far higher returns at greatly reduced risk. And all of our Wall Street Con Men friends will be able to make more money than ever before because people will feel safer investing in stocks once the risk of stock investing has been greatly diminished. And all of our blogger friends will be having a blast exploring all of the hundreds of exciting debate that were taken off the table during the Buy-and-Hold years but which finally can be discussed freely. And the number of people who can retire early will be greatly expanded. Please tell me the downside, Anonymous. Of all the things that Bogle got right, the most important one was the one where he said that investors should look to the peer-reviewed research for guidance on how to invest in stocks. He should have just stuck with that. My sincere take. And my best wishes to you.

Stock up on supplies.  Make sure you are prepped. If you’re behind on your preparedness efforts and need to do this quickly, you can order buckets of emergency food just to have some on hand. (Learn how to build an emergency food supply using freeze dried food HERE) Hit the grocery store or wholesale club and stock up there, too, on  your way home.
You were born with Aesculapia at 2 Cancer in your Fourth House of property, houses and apartments. Psyche at 1 Taurus in your Second House of banks, assets and debts. The North Node at 0 Sagittarius in your Ninth House of foreign faces and places. The South Node at 0 Gemini in your Third House of internet and negotiation. Put all that together and you have quite a story about home as an investment, home as a financial obligation, but also home as ‘home’ in the real sense of the word. When Uranus moves into Taurus in May 2018 and slowly passes 0, 1, 2 Taurus you will be directly affected by a global economic revolution, and in your own country, radical changes affecting everything from pensions to property prices. Aesculapia is about something/someone which comes back from the brink. Often this is a house or apartment you have given up on, which you either renovate back to life – or perhaps a property comes back on the market. Then we have the Gemini-Sagittarius question about foreign faces and places and the internet plays its part there too. I suspect this is about a substantial asset, as Psyche is about what lives on after you have gone, and she is in Taurus – all that you earn, own or owe. At the very heart of this cycle are your values. What you will and will not sell your soul for. Who or what you consider to be priceless. You are going to be asked to look at that very, very deeply and make a new life budget. Uranus in Taurus 15/05/2018 to 05/11/2018 starts the cycle, then it picks up again after a break during the re-entry of Uranus in Taurus 06/03/2019 – we then see this cycle extending to 06/07/2025 but you will feel it most powerfully in May, June 2018 and at the start of 2019. Bitcoin will have a massive impact on the world then and the ripples will reach you.

The mid-1980s were a time of strong economic optimism. From August 1982 to its peak in August 1987, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) grew from 776 to 2722. The rise in market indices for the 19 largest markets in the world averaged 296 percent during this period. The average number of shares traded on the NYSE(New York Stock Exchange) had risen from 65 million shares to 181 million shares.[26]
The crucial point of their paper was that sandpile avalanches could not be predicted, and not because of randomness (there was no random component in their model) or because the authors could not figure out how to come up with equations to describe it. Rather, they found it impossible in a fundamental sense to set up equations that would describe the sandpile model analytically, so there was no way to predict what the sandpile would do. The only way to observe its behavior was to set up the model in a computer and let it run.
I will consider here three diseases that are a threat to mankind: AIDS, Ebola , and Influenza. The virus that causes AIDS, HIV, was discovered in 1983, so we will associate AIDS with the number 83. The galaxy M83 is in the constellation Hydra, which was a multi-headed serpent in mythology that kept growing a new head, each time a head was cut off. This sounds like AIDS, which keeps mutating to allow it to get around any treatment or vaccine. The Hydra was defeated by Hercules, by his nephew Iolaus burning each of the mortal heads as Hercules cut them off, and burying the immortal head under a stone. I wonder if this mythology story could somehow be a clue on how to treat AIDS? Note that the AIDS virus has 9213=111x83 bits of genetic information, so again we see the number 83 again.
"In turbulent times for financial markets, more books than usual are published on such subjects as financial crashes. This book is different. First, it is written by an internationally recognized expert in non-linear, complex systems. Second, it promotes some new ideas in both finance and science. In addition, it offers the general reader an insight into finance, both practical and academic, as well as some of the issues at the cutting edge of science. What more could one ask for?"―Neil F. Johnson, Department of Physics and Oxford Center for Computational Finance, Oxford University

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.

Bonjour Jean-Sebastien! Je viens de terminer la lecture de vos articles et je dois dire que vous me motivez encore plus à acquérir mon indépendance financière. Étant encore relativement jeune et aux études (21 ans et en voie de commencer son MBA l’année prochaine), l’objectif semble encore loin, mais facilement atteignable avec de la motivation! J’aimerais cependant avoir votre avis sur les stratégies de placement. Comme j’ai pu constater suite à la lecture de vos articles sur l’investissement, vous privilégiez beaucoup les FNB aux autres produits de placement à cause de leurs faibles frais de gestion et vous semblez être plus réticent face aux fonds communs investis à l’aide d’un conseiller financier. Cependant, que pensez vous des fonds communs investis à l’aide de plateforme de courtage en ligne qui diminuent considérablement les frais de gestion? En investissant dans des fonds commun de série D (directement en ligne) plutôt que A (avec conseiller) les frais peuvent souvent se réduire de moitié pour tourner autour de 1%. J’aimerais avoir votre avis sur cette situation. Merci beaucoup et continuez votre bon travail! J’espère pouvoir vous rencontrer un jour et échanger sur votre expérience.
I can’t thank you enough for your insight and accuracy in astrology since over the years you have been an absolute Godsend for me—thank you! I quote and reference you all time! As an American with a DOB is 11/17/65 @ 5:05pm CST involved with a person with DOB 5/13/60, the current astro-climate has seem extremely relentless when it comes to work, boss, co-workers, relationship, and home. I’m really concerned with the upcoming Uranus in Taurus astro, what should I/we do to ride this out? Will Chiron in Aries ease some of this or make it worse?
At least, that's what I'd say if I were a chain-smoking stock market trader, but for memes. For a while now, this mental image has been the running gag behind popular subreddit "/r/MemeEconomy." On the forum, users jokingly speculate about which memes are on the rise, and which should be dumped before they take down your entire portfolio by making it into a "normie" publication. You know, like this one. 
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?
Adverts in the early 1990s had a man called David, portrayed by Dudley Moore, on the hunt for free-range chickens from France and discovering many goods from around the world to purchase for Tesco.[132] Late 2000s adverts included many celebrities and celebrity voice-overs such as The Spice Girls and the voice of actors James Nesbitt and Jane Horrocks.[133]
Tesco has been targeted by protesters complaining the supermarket chain sells goods made in Israel, with most complaints being about products emanating from Israeli settlements in the West Bank. Protests generally occur when Israeli military operations are being carried out in the Gaza Strip or the West Bank. A protester was arrested at a protest at a shop in Birmingham on 16 August 2014.[161]
I had decided to find out what German clairvoyants say about the future of Europe, went on YouTube and came across a video called “Palmblatt-Prophezeihungen, Katastrophale Zulu ft says such ten Europa a 2018”. The source of the videos’ text is Thomas Ritter, a collector of Naadi oracle leaves ( German: Palmblatt). He had some Naadi leaves translated by a retired professor who understands the symbols used in the leaves. The prophecies are published on his website and they talk about the coming changes in Europe. Bearing in mind that the original Naadi leaves are thousands of years old, the prophecies are absolutely mind-boggling and corroborate prophecies from other sources.
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.

In this site, my method of prophecy combines Astrology and other New Age Schools, mythology, religion, the prophecies of Nostradamus, Bible Code in the King James Bible, Bible prophecy, and numerical analysis. In particular, the Book of Revelation of the King James Bible is discussed. This web site is huge, you can spend days reading it. The emphasis of this web site is on predicting the future for years 2018 - 2020. There could be ominous events possibly occurring in 2018 - 2019: quakes, volcanoes, Ebola, Zika, Bird Flu or SARS epidemic, and wars. This is a new holistic method of prophecy I have developed. Also on this web site are videos on Psychokinesis, where I demonstrate using Psychic Energy to control the weather, clouds and wind, by psychic ESP mind over matter power, telekinesis, making clouds grow or disappear and controlling the wind.
Regulation of margin requirements (by the Federal Reserve) was implemented after the Crash of 1929. Before that, speculators typically only needed to put up as little as 10 percent (or even less) of the total investment represented by the stocks purchased. Other rules may include the prohibition of free-riding: putting in an order to buy stocks without paying initially (there is normally a three-day grace period for delivery of the stock), but then selling them (before the three-days are up) and using part of the proceeds to make the original payment (assuming that the value of the stocks has not declined in the interim).

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.

The NASDAQ has surged by a similar percentage. In other words, the winds that brought Trump to the White House fueled some $5.0 trillion into Wall Street’s market capitalization. How much more energy can this already remarkable—and improbable—rally have? Chances are the rally will taper off. It could do this gradually or with a bang—that is, a crash.

Australia is in the strange position of having a Scorpio Prime Minister at the moment and a Scorpio former Prime Minister too. The leader of the Opposition is a Taurus. These two signs are opposite and Uranus about to enter Taurus suggests Canberra will be rocked in May, June 2018. This goes beyond a deep shift at the top of the two parties. It is also about Australia’s values – Taurus and Scorpio are very much about what the nation won’t sell out for. So this goes way beyond the lightning bolt of Uranus in Taurus on the world economy mid-year and into huge political questions for the nation. Scorpio, Scorpio, Taurus – you couldn’t make it up!
During the 2019 - 2020 time period expect to see economic chaos, wars, terrorist attacks, disease epidemics, great earthquakes, volcanos, asteroids hit earth. But how about in the past, were there any particular planetary alignments during times of economic problems? Yes, there is a general pattern we shall discuss here. During the October 1987 and October 1929 stock exchange crashes, the Planet Saturn was in the Astrological sign of Sagittarius. The significance of this is that Sagittarius, the combined horse/man, with Saturn having a connection in Greek / Roman / Etruscan mythology to agriculture as well as weghts and measures and coins, means that Saturn in Sagittarius represents the third Horseman of the Apocalypse, economic depression. When Saturn is in Sagittarius you may get the trigger event, such as a stock market crash, that begins an economic depression., Travel and Leisure in Singapore provides a variety of customized Singapore street directory, Hotels and Hostels, Singapore Images, Real estate, Search for Singapore Private Limited Companies, Singapore Wine and Dine Guide, Bus Guide and Asia Destinations.

“Investing isn’t rocket science,” says Janet Tyler Johnson, certified financial planner and president of JATAJ Wealth Management. “The keys to long-term investment success are globally diversifying your money, keeping costs low, and rebalancing your accounts as needed. And don’t forget the Golden Rule of investing – if you don’t understand it, don’t invest in it.”

If you believe in Taratam Vani [TV in brief] that manifested in India during 1657-94 AD – which can be termed as ‘Seventeenth Century Revelations’ – I feel after considerable thought that the Avatara of Kalki had manifested in the year 1618 AD in a personage called Shri Devachandraji [1581-1657 AD]. He is esoterically referred to in 2nd chapter of 12th Skandha of Bhagawatam as the horse called “Devadutta”. That happened after a 14 year long fascination and devotion/contemplation of the text of Bhagawatam. He one day accomplished his highest humanly attainable state of consciousness [that must have been, in my humble opinion, a state called ‘Turyateeta’ in the text of ‘Yogavasishtha’ when one has an audience with Paramatma].

Sree Veerabrahmendra Swamy a reincarnation of Lord Vishnu who is the Preserver of the deities predicted that from November 2016 onward through the year 2017 there would be many cataclysms which would wipe out millions. These comprise earthquakes of over 7 on the Richter scale occurring all over the world. In China from 2015 to 2023 since Saturn represents 8 Years it would see common man protests, Change of Government, bad karma and economic troubles. China would fight a war with India to divert public opinion from their economic troubles. America would see their currency collapse by 90% according to Gerald Celente and already the Asian countries are holding Euros and gold in their reserves. America will be wrecked by hyperinflation and food riots. The fall of a superpower with 20 trillion dollars in debt by 2018-2019 which is more than the G.D.P of the country. Britain would face economic crisis as well as its debt has reached alarming proportions. Overall Europe and America would spend less on defense affecting them in the future decades when the security of these countries is threatened.

I recently wrote a Guest Blog Entry for the Blunt Money blog. It's called "Talk Back to the Investing Experts." Juicy Excerpt: Investing experts are like everybody else. They are flawed humans. They get things wrong. And they are inclined not to admit it too readily. They do more harm to their reputations in the long run by failing to do so, of course. They need our help. Does that sound to you like the sort of thing that might undermine national security? Does it sound like hate speech?…

In other words, bear markets are part of investing. You can’t avoid them – but you can make sure a bear market doesn’t wipe you out. Rule number one is to diversify, and periodically rebalance your portfolio. When a correction, stock market crash or bear market comes along, the stocks that fall the most are those that are trading at the highest valuations, those with the most debt, and those with the lowest margins.
Why Buy-and-Hold Investing Can Never WorkThe Buy-and-Holders are not evil people. They are smart and good people. They made a mistake. They were so excited about their early findings that they experienced cognitive dissonance when the mistake was revealed. They painted themselves into a corner and now don’t know how to get out. This article explains how the mistake was made and how we came to find ourselves in the trap we are in today.
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.
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.)
I appreciate this answer of Craig to ‘seeker’. It is in tune with my inputs from equivalents of Craig’s Naadi readings that say many evolved souls have incarnated outside of India [in west particularly] and this would have happen for quite some time. This will serve an inevitable purpose to serve in God’s scheme by providing support in bringing about an unprecedented spiritual New Age characterized by Universal Brotherhood and also mankind turning back to respective scriptures. They would increasingly realize during the changeover period that scriptures of all world faiths had been manifested by same One God in different parts of world from time to time.
“Investors” on the subreddit are granted 1000 units of NASDANQ (the name of the market they’ve created) currency when they first join, with an aim to make as much profit as possible. The meme market operates just like any other stock market – new memes that are on the rise are desirable, while when a meme is decaying, those participating in the market try and sell it off as quickly as they can.
In my previous article entitled “Why Are So Many People Talking About The Potential For A Stock Market Crash In October?”, I noted that this has been the month with the most market volatility ever since the Dow was first established.  Absent some kind of major event, the stock market usually gets kind of sleepy around Thanksgiving and does not really spring to life again until after the new year has begun.
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.

During the 1950s and 1960s, Tesco grew organically, and also through acquisitions, until it owned more than 800 shops. The company purchased 70 Williamson's shops (1957), 200 Harrow Stores outlets (1959), 212 Irwins shops (1960, beating Express Dairies' Premier Supermarkets to the deal), 97 Charles Phillips shops (1964) and the Victor Value chain (1968) (sold to Bejam in 1986).[18]

One mitigation strategy has been the introduction of trading curbs, also known as "circuit breakers", which are a trading halt in the cash market and the corresponding trading halt in the derivative markets triggered by the halt in the cash market, all of which are affected based on substantial movements in a broad market indicator. Since their inception, circuit breakers have been modified to prevent both speculative gains and dramatic losses within a small time frame.[43]

I think it is such a pity that we are still, even now, locking horns with Russia. I believed that that this cloud of distrust and ill will had been dissipated, now it looms darker than ever. In the West we are as guilty on all levels as Russia on letting this happen, with Ukraine broken as the piggy in the middle. We have, stupidly, fallen hook, line and sinker into this pit and I don’t think Obama has any solutions to this. Him and Putin despise each other. We certainly should not be building the structures to keep Russia out for another generation.
August has been a study in contrasts, another month in which calm persisted in the U.S. despite jarring news flow. Daily volume dropped to an average of 6.1 billion shares, the second lowest since last October. Negative headlines flashed, from an escalation in trade tensions to emerging market turmoil to continued political chaos in Washington. Yet none was enough to rock the market out of its slumber.
Tesco purchased the restaurant and cafe chain Giraffe in 2013 for £48.6 million.[43] In 2014, it began to open restaurants within some of its shops. The company set up Tesco Family Dining Ltd in 2014 as part of a new department called 'new food experience', including Core Cafes, Giraffe, Decks and Euphorium bakeries. That year, Tesco reached an agreement to take the in-shop cafes run by Compass Group and Elior back under its own control, so as to improve its dining offering.[44]
Writing with Brunello Rosa, Nouriel sets the scene this way: “The current global expansion will likely continue into next year, given that the US is running large fiscal deficits, China is pursuing loose fiscal and credit policies, and Europe remains on a recovery path. But by 2020, the conditions will be ripe for a financial crisis, followed by a global recession.”
Je crois que je n’étais pas clair dans ma question. Qu est ce que ça me rapporte de plus et est-ce qu’ils tente vraiment de me diriger vers les fonds qu’il veut pour faire une commission ou bien y a til vraiment plus de risques ou moins d’avantages dans des fonds auto gérés. je dois avouer que le 2.3% me donne mal au coeur, ça voudrait dire que je pourrais investir dans le même fond moi même et aller chercher 10%. (je comprend aussi le principe d’avoir quelqu’un qui nous donne des stratégies d’épargnes et placements variés.
Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to the discussion thread for another blog entry at this site: “I hope that helps a bit. I have heard of the Coffeehouse Portfolio. I don’t know what the Cowards Portfolio is. I obviously get it that a three-fund portfolio would include three funds but I couldn’t tell you what those three funds would be. These questions don’t interest me too much.” So you don’t really know what is in all those portfolios as well as their strategy, yet you say that they will all lose 50% of their value and that VII is superior. I don’t say that. It’s the last 37 years of peer-reviewed research in this field that says that. I REPORT it. I am a reporter. That’s the kind of thing we do. We don’t just push smiley-face marketing slogans. We REPORT realities. What if these funds went by the name of “The Irrational Exuberance Portfolio”? Do you think that would sell? Why do you think they don’t do it that way? It’s because they want to turn a quick buck. Valuation-Informed Indexing is what works. Buy-and-Hold is what sells. It can’t all be about marketing. When millions of middle-class people see their lifetime savings wiped out, they are going to get angry. When they learn that there were people trying to tell them what the last 37 years of peer-reviewed research teaches us about how stock investing works in the real world, their anger is going to intensify. The Buy-and-Hold marketing slogans will be spoken as obscenities in those days. Not a good thing. There’s plenty of money to be made in this field telling the truth. You could have all these funds and still tell people the truth about the need to practice price discipline (long-term timing) when buying stocks and the funds would actually work and people would like them. The problem stems from the fact that we didn’t always know everything there is to know about how stock investing works, and when Shiller published his Nobel-prize-winning research, the Buy-and-Holders elected to ignore it rather than to work up the courage to say the words “I’ and “Was” and “Wrong.” Now we are in a trap. It is now 500 times harder for Bogle and the other Buy-and-Holders to say those words than it would have been to say them […]
Or it may not be. Think about it. Doomsayers have pointed to any number of reasons in recent years why they believed the market was headed for a downturn: Standard & Poor's downgrading of U.S. Treasury debt in 2011; the growth-slowdown scare in China that sent stock prices down 12% in the summer of 2015; Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, both of which were supposed to be catalysts for a market rout. But none of these warnings panned out.
What’s happening to the stock market since last Friday? I have been so preoccupied with the Russia mess and actually while I was working on the e-book – I got a strong feeling to look into the stock market. I’ve been feeling something was going to happen and when I did a cursory look into it – the time frame for a major problem seemed to be fall of 2019. I started getting worried about it because I was doing personal readings about the markets for people and kept feeling something coming. But of course I was busy and put it off. So the feeling built and while I was writing I just freaked out and started rectifying the NYSE chart and dove in.
Buffett is being optimistic. In fact, if history can offer any lessons, note that the Dow Jones 100 years ago, in 1917, stood at 1,328 points. That would be less than 20 times the current number. But Buffett probably doesn’t have to worry too much about the events that may or may not occur in the 22nd century. Now, as far as the present is concerned, you can be sure that Buffett chooses his words and predictions more carefully, as it were.
Fourth, other US policies will continue to add stagflationary pressure, prompting the Fed to raise interest rates higher still. The administration is restricting inward/outward investment and technology transfers, which will disrupt supply chains. It is restricting the immigrants who are needed to maintain growth as the US population ages. It is discouraging investments in the green economy. And it has no infrastructure policy to address supply-side bottlenecks.
