Stocks don’t go ‘on sale’

This is the same rationalization given to stupid women buying five grand Gucci.

They’ll magically save for your retirement, because the central bankers would allow proles to get into this system.
You can sit on your backside like a hippy Boomer in the 60s because the economy has magical productivity, this is possible. You can work four hours a week and survive financially. It’s easy money! This time it’s different! Online jobs can never be outsourced!
Fairytales are stupid stories for kids!

A fool and his money.

The big fish are even telling you to hold in case of a crash(1) because Muh Markets always recover!

They don’t go to zero. Companies never go bankrupt. That has never happened in the history of America.

 

I mean, consider the wording. Worthless things that need to be cleared as stock go on sale.

They’re hinting in the wording.

I hope as many idiots are financially ruined as possible but that doesn’t include my readership so.

Actively encourage every leftie you know to buy in now. Apple, Tesla, the works!

100% in the stock market is not diversification. 401k, bonds, ETFs – all stock-bound. Did you at least buy modern art too? That is tangible.
Where do the people exist to buy this?

Kid’s culture is stupid!

Buy no hot potato.

internet con artists:

1 – Stocks won’t crash but IF they did, keep buying while I’m definitely not selling, no Siree.

Capitalist kitty

Worse than buying bonds before a collapse in the class, worse than buying French gilts, worse than buying single company stock, worse than falling for the siren song of “options” over cash, worse than an actor agreeing to be paid in net profits, is buying something calling itself a “currency” backed by precisely zero humans’ labour.

Those tulips smell lovely.

And to this day, nobody knows who invented it. You’re legally barred from purchasing land, the only real investment, with it. Every idiot you know is acting like 2005 with house prices, laughing at you for not buying it. If there’s one thing that motivates your investment strategy, it should be the emotions of the idiots who read one blog post or ‘trust’ a public adviser, reliant on clickbait.

Still, there is one group stupider. (I don’t care if that counts as a word, don’t @ me).

The EU-China land bridge builders. Bridges work both ways? You’d have to be especially thick to build a LAND BRIDGE during a time that a previously wealthy continent is experiencing demographic decline and being overtaken with African (and low-quality Asian) marauding rapists and bandits. You have more money than us and more schoolgirls. Where will they go, if there’s a land bridge? For their sake, I hope the debt falls through prior to completion. It probably will.

Watching the financial news is like reading Emperor’s New Clothes. You can’t see it, you can’t touch it, you pay for it and just – trust us, it’s there.

Currencies are backed by citizens, specifically their sweat.

I’m starting to see a connection between box office records and the economy. If anyone wants to follow that thread, I say go for it.

Penny stocks are a scam

I rarely give financial advice. You know this.

There’s a thing going round the desperate about Amazon penny stocks, don’t do it.

Please.

I don’t want to see any of my readers scammed.

Normally, I’d turn a blind eye but they trust Amazon for some reason and it’s intended to snag people who think they’re too smart to buy Apple. Problem is, you have no friends in this industry. I do.

I would rather buy seeds.

This was literally in Wolf of Wall Street as a massive con.

They’re lying to you.

I say this because I care.

With any stock tips, it’s 99% BS or 1% illegal.

Guardian: It’s over, the good times are gone

Give this one traffic.

http://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/jan/12/sell-everything-ahead-of-stock-market-crash-say-rbs-economists

Investors face a “cataclysmic year” where stock markets could fall by up to 20% and oil could slump to $16 a barrel, economists at the Royal Bank of Scotland have warned.

If they say twenty, they mean at least double.

Stock markets have already come under severe pressure in 2016, with the FTSE 100 down more than 5% in its worst start since 2000. In the US, the Dow Jones industrial average has made its poorest ever start to a year.

The Chinese know something we don’t. Since the yuan got reserve status, they’ve been cashing out their chips… into our chips.

RBS is not the only negative voice at the moment. Analysts at JP Morgan have advised clients to sell stocks on any bounce.

Any.

The preppers’ portfolio for doom and gloom

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/investing/gold/11685592/The-table-that-shows-you-should-always-hold-gold.html

I like this idea. Low-risk strategies are the way to go if you’re edging retirement and can’t risk high exposure.

Diversification, as a strategy, is all but dead, in that everything is both dangerous and correlated.

Thanks, bailouts.

As a result of this bleak world view, Personal Assets offers a glimpse as to how a portfolio might be constructed to best weather the ultimate in uncertainty.

If inflation resurfaces with a vengeance, 10pc of the portfolio is in gold and 20pc in UK and US index-linked government bonds.

Don’t trust gilts.
Governments can default, hello Greece.

If the menace is deflation, there’s a 30pc cash pile. If shares crash there is comfort in a current exposure to global equities of only 40pc – plus the fact that the stocks held are super-quality defensives such as Nestlé and Coca-Cola.

ah, blue chips
but their nominal value must be part of the overvaluation trend? when did they buy?

If the stock market tanks on a truly stunning scale, there’s the £170m cash hoard with which to go buying.

…such a holding within a portfolio otherwise made up of British shares and bonds in a 60:40 split would have affected returns over the past four decades.

The research was undertaken by gold investor service BullionVault – so not disinterested – and puts a price on owning gold in terms of its hedging benefits on one hand and loss of long-term returns on the other.

A 10pc holding, for example, would have roughly halved portfolio losses in the worst year of the past 40. The price paid would have been the reduction, by almost two percentage points, in the average annual growth over a five-year period….

I have heard good things about Bullion Vault.

Gold is the only valuable currency. No tarnish, low chemical reactivity, hard to fake.

Forbes: Are Stocks heading for a Crash?

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jessecolombo/2014/08/27/are-stocks-heading-for-a-crash-this-fall/

At the start of last month, I published a piece in which I showed twenty-three charts that I believe prove that the U.S. stock market is experiencing a classic speculative bubble that will end in a crash or severe bear market….

As we head into the fall – a historically weak season for stocks – it is a good time to reiterate the need for caution as stocks trade near all-time highs. Some of history’s worst stock market crashes, including the crash of 1929, 1987, and 2008, occurred in September and October after rallying in the spring or summer. I must emphasize that I am not actually predicting a crash this fall (thought it certainly could happen), but rather discussing the risks and potential sell-off catalysts to be aware of…..

Interesting read.
