Buy the Bulls @BuyTheBulls

If you’re the buy and hold type this low maintenance enhancement will make your life a hell of a lot more comfortable. Especially if you need funds in the middle off a GFC meltdown.

"In summary, a low frequency strategy with minimal workload that provides a slightly better return than buy and hold, yet without the significant downside that a buy and hold investor needs to contend with."

Great News, the average age when people see the light and crossover from supporting socialism to supporting conservatism has dropped by 8 years, now the average age is 39, down from 47. (You Gov).

That's the amount of real life experience needed to see that socialism is not about a fairer society at all but is really about taking complete and total control while conservatism is not about selfishness but is really about protecting personal freedoms.

Australian firefighters slam climate alarmists and 'green tape' for preventing back-burning which would have prevented the now huge bushfires. I'll believe Australian firefighters over a Swedish NWO puppet-child any day of the week.

This has just turned up an looks to be an extract from a new biography of Nav Sarao. Those about around 2015 will remember he was the Brit who was extradited to the US on market spoofing charges and said to have caused a major global flash crash. He served time and payed a massive fine but also while inside was swindled out of his complete trading earnings of $50 million (if memory serves).

The extract covers his early days day trading the US markets at Futex (UK company).

(google 'nav sarao' for more).

DAX seems to be between a rock and a hard place?

I wonder where the max pain is?

"Max pain, or the max pain price, is the strike price with the most open contract puts and calls - and the price at which the stock would cause financial losses for the largest number of option holders at expiration."

the key is the interconnectedness of these large international companies and their dependence on a booming US economy, currently Dax and Ftse are marking time waiting for that next US boom, note marking time and not collapsing because markets are expecting US growth in the future. If the US economy picks up substantially then so will demand for Audis, Mercs and BMWs, same for Ftse company products. Markets have been waiting for some kind of resolution to the US/China trade dispute and true the picture is still not clear but is clear enough to encourage the US markets, if that continues the others must follow.

    • I cannot see that the global economy will have a fast recovery. I can only see a depression looming unless a vaccine is quickly developed. This is the first time in a long time that the US has been directly affected by a major negative event (9/11 was localised). With the US slowing down, there is no other economy that will be able to create the demand required to get us a fast recovery. China's domestic demand is not large enough and Chinese personal debt was going through the roof even before the virus pandemic. How will the world and the global economy be once this pandemic subsides? I think a very changed society and traditional retail will be one the worst sufferers. Also with all this money printing, is there a risk of hyperinflation in the long term? Well, gonna buy a couple of KGs of gold just as insurance and not for investment per se. Also think property prices will come under the cosh so sitting on cash will enable you to buy distressed properties as getting loans will be hard for many. I am reevaluating my log term investment strategy to take into account the changing environment.
    • Yes...lots of people reacting in strange ways right now......Keep smiling.... How long will it all last? I know it sounds boring....but forget the noise (harder said then done) and watch the charts...the trend is your only friend.... That said....down for april.....sell in may and come back in june!!
