Lot of hysterical men online want this to be It.
They don’t want to lose much money or they want to look as if they called it and timed it properly.
Should’ve listened to me, obviously.
Not even close. 600, 800 points?
Don’t insult me.
I’ll look when it’s 2,500 to 3 or 4,000 in one DAY.
Because trust me, that day is coming.
I ain’t buyin’ up shit.
I’m not a Boomer, retirement isn’t looming for a long, long time.
The big banks still seem to be hoovering up dudebro investors with this, pretending it’s a low.
Babe, you’ve never seen a low if you’re 18 and this is your first trade.
It never specifies sector drops in the titles either.
FANG drop? Who gives a F?
Oil? I’m listening. That means more people (coughs China) are purchasing. For what?
too much discussion of dollar, insufficient on the petro- part.
Especially threats to.
This guy is goooooooooood.
Not just good.
“Since gold can’t be “debased”, it begins to attract investment from those who would rather not consume today’s overproduction (and via that sharing wealth and ‘favours’) but continue to hoard these for the purpose of individual wealth accumulation.
Owning your own money makes you a Bad Person.
Gold in this way symbolises humanity’s selfish streak.
What’s more, while gold encourages anti-social behaviour and hoarding in individuals, a fiat-based system encourages the very opposite: sharing, distribution, collaboration and cooperation.
SJWs in finance, called it here first.
Welfare-phobia is round the sharp corner of a Hillary victory.
The “NWO Socialist Welfare State” (or whatever you want to call it) is completely dependent on the US dollar’s global use in the store of value role. Something that cannot be controlled. It can only be earned through confidence. And most simply stated, that’s ending. Look no farther than how the creep of progressivism has paralleled the creep of the US dollar, and then you will see how far this movement is about to be set back.
We live in the end times of progressive religion. PREACH.
Meanwhile, whatever your opinion of gold.
I read a statistic… The average American has less than a $5000 net worth… it’s pathetic… we’re basically broke… but in fact it’s much less… If you actually took the national debt and broke it down per capita, the average American has a negative net worth because the government has borrowed in his name more than the average American is able to save.
What’s happening is pretty much what we would anticipate. I don’t see from the data any real economic recovery, certainly not in the United States.
We’re spending more money, but it’s not because we’re generating more wealth. We’re generating more debt. We’re using that borrowed money to consume and so temporarily it feels that we’re wealthier because we get to spend all that money… but we have to come to terms with paying the bill.
The bills are going to come due. Right now interest rates are being kept at zero which makes it possible to service the debt even though it’s impossible to repay it… at least we can service it. But once interest rates go up then we can’t even service it let alone repay it.
And then the party is going to come to an end.
In a game of musical chairs, you watch for the teacher to edge nearer the music player before hovering near a chair. The teacher has a finger above the Stop button. Nobody is hovering.
I think the whole of civilization will collectively refuse to pay it. They can’t force us without becoming slave owners. I think the Jews or whatever usurers are in control are gonna get a shock when the pound of flesh is taken from the heart of every person who conned us pre-birth.
The full GOV link herein is also completely worth the read.
“Once Europeans go K, the Muslims will flee in large numbers, but that will take the misery and amygdala activation of K-selection to trigger.”
Once? His optimism warms the cockles of my Cockney heart. The British Government is so far gone it would sooner collapse than stop paying out benefits, which are truly bribes for Londonistan to hold off on rioting this week. I wonder what will happen to all the hipsters of the East End or celebrity Champagne Socialist sets? I don’t think they’ll run, I think they’ll initially try to ‘help’ – the invaders, but soon hide in their massive Burgle Me! homes.
Based on observation, they might try joining (like the UAF and SWP) to bring about what they imagine to be the End of Capitalism (that’s why they’re doing it, they told me, like an immigration version of Cloward-Piven) but I don’t see that working, it would function like an anti-white pogrom. Practice your NAMALT memes.
“Not all Muslims” will be their retreat song, as they greedily watch those same people beat you down and, they hope, to death.
Begin playing a game of Warrior/Informer. If your country were taken over, who would work with you to take down the system, and would be the snitch? You get uncannily good at spotting the snitches.
“It is easy to confuse Islamists with warriors, given Islam’s violent reputation. My guess is that the rabbits importing these Muslims have done so, and are hoping they have imported a violent army which will subjugate the evil nationalists when the unrest begins.”
They have never fought with their back against the wall. The natives have nothing to lose and the nationalists are fighting for a future. The enemy are nihilist degenerates who live for nothing and believe in nothing, no God will protect them. It’s cold and nobody will fight for that ‘dream’.
They have two obvious weaknesses.
1. They cluster. Weapons were designed for this herd marker. We have narrow roads.
2. They are dependent on the European welfare state. If our version of EBT were shut down by a single patriot in the system, or a single hacker from without, their future jihadi children would starve. Kidnapping the children would also occur, since they’ve done that to ours already. Civil wars are fought with women and especially children, and which group has more of those?
The biggest issue is the disarmament and they do have us on that count.
“If the economic collapse goes down, expect those free resources to be pulled. When they are, there will not be much keeping these migrators from migrating on, is search of safety and security elsewhere.”
Except their primary motivation is sex with white-blonde whores. They think all Western women are the whores they see in porn. Low IQ, what ya gonna do.
The secondary motivation is money, yes. The simplest way to end this invasion, as I’ve mentioned, is to harshly punish rape again. Even the feminists couldn’t complain. Unlike the Barbarians, we can see them coming, hear them coming (the Call to Prayer is LOUD and broadcasts where they are reliably at multiple points throughout the day) and in many cases, smell them coming (acrid off-curry stench, don’t ask). In a dark, enclosed urban environment, utilizing all the senses would be crucial. Their men tend to be lard-arses too. White girls need to learn to run again.
“There will be ISIS fighters who have come to Europe specifically to launch attacks”
As I mentioned, the Paris attackers targeted a Left-wing Socialist area. They knew those places were least defended. We have religious rabbits targeting atheist/hedonist rabbits, that’s why many in Europe have suddenly gone quiet. Their plan literally backfired.
“Hopefully nobody will forget the cowardice and treason of the rabbits, before it is all over.”
Keep reminding them. Everywhere. On the street. In casual conversation. WHO MADE THIS HAPPEN.
I keep telling Germans ‘but you voted for Merkel’. It’s beginning to sink in.
The timing of the EU invasion this year was deliberate, to distract the West from the Christian Genocide in MENA.
It’s a useful rhetorical trick to turn back the SJW’s cry on them.
You’re on the wrong side of history, you should be wearing a hijab.
Demographics is destiny.
This also shows that mass immigration, to put it politely, will screw over the poor. It will disrupt the direction of this trend in favour of the native poor.
One can dream.
Shares in China were on the slide again yesterday, with the stock market in Shanghai down another 2.67 per cent, taking losses since June in what has been dubbed ‘The Great Fall of China’ to 39.71 per cent.
The Great Fail of China.
Last month was the worst for the FTSE 100 index in London for more than three years and the blue chip benchmark is nearly 15 per cent off the all-time high reached in April.
You think that’s bad?
You think that’s it?
Claudio Borio, chief economist at BIS, warns it is ‘unrealistic and dangerous to expect’ that central banks ‘can cure all of the global economy’s ills’ through low interest rates and money printing and BIS is calling for an end to the era of ultra-cheap money.
The time for sanity was 2008.
Of course, he was not alone in being taken by surprise by the last crash. The Queen famously asked in spring 2009: ‘Why did no one see this coming?’
The answer, from the British Academy a few months later, was that there had been ‘a failure of the collective imagination of many bright people’.
Oxymoron in there somewhere.
Seven years on, the storm clouds are gathering once again, as the world struggles to bounce back from the collapse of Lehman and its painful aftermath.
This was the foreplay. It didn’t work. The IMF is going in dry.
In other financial news:
Despite the rise of new generations, it’s worth remembering that the baby boomers still hold a large chunk of the developed world’s wealth.
Demographic change is a particularly dominant theme across the portfolio and the funds’ managers exploit play this theme via a number of healthcare and pharmaceutical names.
As a wise philosopher once said – ‘demography is destiny’.
Wise to remember when they push for hostile immigration of more people who want to sponge off the State.
It’s short and they’ve been going SJW so, in full so I can explain;
The manager of one of Britain’s biggest bond funds has urged investors to keep cash under the mattress.
Ian Spreadbury, who invests more than £4bn of investors’ money across a handful of bond funds for Fidelity, including the flagship Moneybuilder Income fund, is concerned that a “systemic event” could rock markets, possibly similar in magnitude to the financial crisis of 2008, which began in Britain with a run on Northern Rock.
“Systemic risk is in the system and as an investor you have to be aware of that,” he told Telegraph Money.
The best strategy to deal with this, he said, was for investors to spread their money widely into different assets, including gold and silver, as well as cash in savings accounts. But he went further, suggesting it was wise to hold some “physical cash”, an unusual suggestion from a mainstream fund manager.
He knows something. He grew a conscience?
Reminds me of the Most Honest Stockbroker in the Entire World.
His concern is that global debt – particularly mortgage debt – has been pumped up to record levels, made possible by exceptionally low interest rates that could soon end, and he is unsure how well banks could cope with the shocks that may await.
He daren’t mention the other 3 horsemen of the economic apocalypse: student loans, pensions/welfare and the NHS.
He pointed out that a saver was covered only up to £85,000 per bank under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme – which is effectively unfunded – and that the Government has said it will not rescue banks in future, hence his suggestion that some money should be held in physical cash.
Per banking LICENSE.
Many banks operate under a single license, meaning you’re entitled to 1 (one) £85k payment. You need to check yourself. This assumes the currency value doesn’t change compared to nominal.
He declined to predict the exact trigger but said it was more likely to happen in the next five years rather than 10. The current woes of Greece, which may crash out of the euro, already has many market watchers concerned.
Mr Spreadbury’s views are timely, aside from Greece. A growing number of professional investors (see comment, right) and commentators are expressing unease about what happens next.
The prices of nearly all assets – property, shares, bonds – have been rising for years.
House prices have risen by 26pc since the start of 2009, and by 68pc in London. The FTSE 100 is up by 75pc.
Although it feels counter-intuitive, this trend of rising prices should continue if economies remain weak, because it gives central banks licence to keep rates low and to carry on with their “quantitative easing” programmes.
Conversely, if the economy does pick up and interest rates need to rise, the act of doing so is likely to stall the economy and force them to be reduced again. Once more, demand for those mainstream assets would be rekindled and the asset boom continues.
But then there is the shock event. Daily Telegraph columnist Jeremy Warner also captured some of the concerns this week when he wrote that the trigger for an “inevitable correction” could come from “a clear blue sky – a completely unanticipated event”.
Like a…. Black Swan? If only there were a name for this effect?
How are fund managers preparing for this gloomy possibility?
Sadistic glee since they’re making bank twice (getting out before this Black Swan crash plus future selloff). 3x if you count ’08 but who does?
Mr Spreadbury sticks to bonds because of the remit of his funds. Within that world, he said a shock to the system would cause a flight to safety and the price of British government bonds, or gilts, would rise sharply. He also holds bonds of companies that would be most protected in times of turmoil – water companies, power network operators – and those where the bonds are secured on a solid asset, such as land or buildings.
Sounds like he’s prepping for a war.
Examples include Center Parcs and Intu, which owns shopping centres.
Marcus Brookes, another well regarded fund manager who looks after billions of pounds worth of investments, is less constrained in where he invests, because of the different remit of his funds. Schroder Multi-Manager Diversity, for example, can pick and choose between assets.
Mr Brookes said the probability of a major shock event was small but even he holds 29pc of the Diversity portfolio in cash, a huge proportion compared with most funds. This decision is due to his concern that bonds are overvalued and may fall. He aims to deliver returns of 4pc above inflation so can’t afford to put too much in assets that he believes will lose money.
“The problem is that people are struggling to work out how to diversify if QE programmes stop,” he said.
Mr Spreadbury added: “We have rock-bottom rates and QE is still going on – this is all experimental policy and means we are in uncharted territory.
Seems pretty planned to me.
“The message is diversification. Think about holding other assets. That could mean precious metals, it could mean physical currencies.”
But you said above….
Nevermind, they don’t have a clue.
Apocalypse incoming. Got it.
