Suffering lies ahead for many.

Recommended Posts

I noticed IG TV has been unrelentingly negative for weeks, almost as if they knew another crash was coming.  Is this it now?

I f*ked up big time first time around so here's hoping I can survive the sloppy seconds :)

Hoorah!  Job cuts will continue through 2021.

Isn't life great?

I think 'technical analysts' should be the next to get the chop :)

What are the chances, given that our skumbags don't give a f*k about anyone but themselves?

“As prospects of quickly finding new work will remain poor for many, some countries should extend unemployment benefit durations to prevent jobseekers from sliding too quickly into much less generous minimum income benefits,” the OECD said.

The organisation described the economic impact of the pandemic as “far worse” than the 2008 financial crisis, noting that government policy “must remain supportive” throughout the crisis to minimise the risk of a “prolonged” slump.

One of the side effects of mass unemployment - predators trying to sell you bullsh!t courses on how to become a day trader.  Swamped with ads on Youtube full of them.  Because desperate, gullible people will believe anything.  :D

The majority of Americans in the largest metro areas felt down, depressed or hopeless last week, according to Bloomberg calculations from a new U.S. Census Household Pulse Survey, which collects data on how people’s lives have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Big wave of suicides coming?

Unemployment has not surged, as many feared, because large numbers of firms have put employees on the government-backed furlough scheme.

But economists say the full effect on employment will not be felt until the scheme ends in October.

By winter we will have a second general lockdown as well as mass unemployment, dark nights and awful cold weather.

I can't f^cking wait :)

These miserable-looking c&nts seem to be suffering enough already

that photo gave me flashbacks,, 15+ years going into the financial district with the masses of people on the subway. Depressing as f@ck , listening to all the cringy talk like  'implementing strategies', 'low hanging fruit', 'providing excellence'. 

Got  hacked off with it as I thought I might go postal,  went to Asia years ago and never came back . Life is too short. Sun, cheap lifestyle,  beaches and no politically correct BS talk or having to acknowledge the 472 different genders we have now 😄

And yet people flock to London from all over the world.  Even from places like southern Europe.  Things have got to be pretty bad when your kids want to leave sun-drenched countries with gorgeous diets to come and work low-paid jobs in a stinkhole like London.

Hopefully the EU can sort out things like 25%+ youth unemployment.  Why do they need millions of Syrians and Africans to work low-paid jobs if they already have millions of kids milling about doing nothing?

I dunno.  The more I think about the world's problems the less I understand.  I just want to go away and hide.

    • If in the UK you can buy physical silver (coins or bars) from the royal mint or royal mint authorised dealers. Just search the internet. You probably want to buy whatever is captial gains tax exempt (I think silver britannias are). Shop around for the best price and also be careful about VAT as I think you may have to pay that on some purchases and not on others . Of course when you buy physical silver in UK as an investment you also have to consider what GBP/ USD is up to as any change in  exchange rate in future will affect your return (as silver is priced in USD). If you don't want physical then you could buy shares in a silver ETF (eg. SSLN) which is  backed by physical metal or if you want to spread bet it you could buy spot silver. It all depends why you want to buy it. If just as an investment then you get a better return buying etf or spread betting (easier to cash in when you want to and potentially less hassles with tax). If you are worried the banking system will freeze up and you can't get money out at some point in the future ( possibly not likely but you can never rule it out) then it's physical - stored outside the banking system either with a company or stored somewhere by yourself. I'm not an expert on this but have just read a bit about it lately as lots of articles suggesting silver will go higher over the next months / year.
