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 :)

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.

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.

Welcome to your next job:

The think tank and advocacy group that repeatedly takes companies like Google and Facebook to task warned in the report [PDF] that Amazon's retail side has gone far beyond promoting efficient working and has adopted an almost dystopian level of control over its warehouse workers, firing them if they fail to meet targets that are often kept a secret.

Among the practices it highlighted, the report said that workers are told to hit a target rate of packages to process per hour, though they are not told what exactly that target is. "We don't know what the rate is," one pseudonymous worker told the authors. "They change it behind the scenes. You'll know when you get a warning. They don't tell you what rate you have to hit at the beginning."

If they grow close to not meeting a target rate, or miss it, the worker receives an automated message warning them, the report said. Workers who fail to meet hidden targets can also receive a different type of electronic message; one that fires them.

But hey, at least Jeff Bezos is very rich.

a new study suggests parents are particularly worried about the wellbeing of their children.

Simple answer to that: don't have any children in the first place.

There's no future and no hope for anyone but the very rich :)

British employers planned more than 300,000 redundancies in June and July, as the coronavirus outbreak took its toll on the workplace.

However, the government's own spending watchdog the Office for Budget Responsibility estimates that in a worst-case scenario, unemployment could hit four million next year.

Great stuff.  A free and independent Britain, with a crippled economy and millions out of work, will be in an excellent position when negotiating trade with the USA :D  :D:D:D:D

Britain is on course to suffer the biggest increase in redundancies in a generation in the second half of 2020, based on lay-off notifications by employers hit by the coronavirus shock to the economy, a think tank said on Monday.

See?  The liberal left are very selfish people.  I view them as being merely one side of the ruling bourgeoisie.  As long as they can keep their five-figure salaries and keep their 'pets' (BLM), they don't care about massive swathes of people seeing a reduction in their living standards.

Workers need unions now more than ever:

    • Everyone, it seems accepts the result of the recent  US elections, except the President and half of the GOP.  Convinced of his own meritless delusions of fraud and other voting chicanery, he now pursues a policy of obfuscation, denial of service and general spite while mad dog Giuliani and even madder Sidney Powell pursue laughable cases in various courts in the vainglorious expectation that 6 million perfectly legal votes will somehow be annulled/ cancelled and cease to  exist. This is not to be, though the only realists in the GOP are keeping their own counsel on the subject, thereby enabling the Presidents' persistent delusions. That's the problem when you believe your own propaganda, it is easy to become confused with reality. Apart from hiding rotten fish behind the radiators of the White house and carving his name on the Resolute desk, soon to be ex president Trump is doing his best to make the transition for "sleepy" Joe as difficult as he can. This includes a tacit refusal to provide more stimulus.  He has instructed Steve Munchkin to end funding for various emergency programs to the tune of $438 billion., thereby hampering the incoming Treasury secretary before he/she even walks through the door. This has rightly upset Jerome Powell who has the interest of the US economy as his overarching priority. Unfortunately, the President is unmoved by the needs of the American public as he feels they have betrayed him.  Why reward treachery? Trump is known for his heartless ardour when crushing those he deems as unworthy, which in this case is the American people as a whole, overcome as he is with nihilistic zeal.  Playing golf while ignoring a health crisis , at the same time as full denial in the face of outright defeat, does not an effective president make. Indeed, might I venture his very legacy as president and future GOP kingmaker hang very much in the balance, indeed may have been irretrievably  lost. Like Trump, lost with nowhere to go. Though he will surely be welcomed in Turkey, Russia, not to mention North Korea.  The markets really want to break higher and gap up to new ATH's but Trumps intransigence, denial (of Covid and the election results) and general spite ( no new stimulus)are causing a state of intermarket bearish divergence, with the SP and Nasdaq refusing to break into new ATHs(all time highs).  I guess we will have to wait until he is forced out come 20th Jan. 
    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
