Still can't quite work out why we are deliberately destroying the economies of every first world nation because of this flu virus. Yesterday I went shopping at the local mega supermarket where the she

The lockdowns haven't destroyed the economy, they have simply shown us who is an essential worker and who isn't - and also shown us how to solve the problem of congested roads and trains and climate change all in one go :P

We'll see how many businesses survive this unnecessary shutdown and how many people are made unemployed. Stats on how long small business can last with no turnover at all do not bode well and as for the govt coming to the rescue, yes well ...

Based on antibody prevalence studies, @joeykrug and I calculated a new #COVID19 mortality rate for the US by age group in comparison to the seasonal flu. RESULTS: COVID-19 mortality rate is similar to that of the Flu for people under age 50.

so we're not actually saving any lives crashing the world economy but never mind, best we what for a vaccine, oh wait ...

Porton Down has been doing research into common cold (a corona virus which has no vaccination) for over 70 years. There is no vaccination for SARS There is no vaccination for MERS There has never been a vaccine for a #Coronavirus If we wait for a vaccine, we could wait forever. twitter.com/FensecLtd/stat…

YouTube goes into full censorship mode removing all content not in line with the official narrative.

"Don't listen to protestors; listen to the doctors! Wait.... not those doctors!!! Please Only listen to the Narrative Approved health professionals. Remember: The Ministry of Truth only wants to keep you Safe." Robert Barnes @Barnes_Law

50 minute video by 2 Drs with over 5 million views deleted by YouTube. They explained the virus is mild and very wide spread and that there is no evidence a lockdown of the healthy is beneficial and will in fact slow the gaining of herd immunity and lead to a second spike post lockdown.

I think this is one area, where we will have to be patient and see how the numbers play out.

The number of deaths is above average for several weeks. But the real picture needs more time to develop, are those deaths displaced from later in the year?

From the graph, it looks like we have circa 50k extra deaths over the last few weeks, so far this represents an 8% increase in the 600k annual death rate in the UK.

And from all this. Who actually has a trade to take advantage of their view, in either direction? (Please don't suggest buying an index and waiting 2 years!)

yes, as per the epidemiologist advisor the the Swedish govt pointed out (pic below reproduced from post above) the most vulnerable dying are the cause of the spike. The US chief medical officer said the same several weeks ago. Also associated deaths are now labeled covid if only a suspicion or if was asymptomatic but tested positive.

The healthy should never have been put into quarantine only the sick and vulnerable. There will be a second spike after end of lockdown until herd immunity which lockdown is just delaying.

Oil has the biggest potential as the world gets up and starts moving again but there is a possible trap for retail traders first. Listen to the podcast posted in the US Oil thread yesterday.

Just participated in a YouGov poll (and it gives your the results so far). 71% of people dont want to rush the ending of the lockdown and want to be cautious.

Choices were basically:

A) Be cautious, b) Start ending it now slowly, c) end it now.

"Covid-19 is a cold weather virus. It's seasonal, like the flu. By the third week of May it will be mostly gone in the Northern Hemisphere. I predict countries around the world will claim victory for for this natural occurence. Just watch."

Well the covid response has turned out a complete success.

YouGov polls show that the majority are now too afraid to even leave their homes. The police spend the day telling anyone out to stay indoors and issue fines and arresting non-compilers. Hospitals are so quite that nurses spend all day making TicToc dance videos, and with the economy in ruins no one can afford to get up to any mischief even if they wanted to.


Well done everyone, give yourselves a round of applause.


In spite of the medical profession's complicity by listing all deaths as caused by covid no matter what the real cause the annual deaths for this year look like being average in total and average for all the age groups.


So a massive increase in govt control over the individual and society at large at absolutely no extra cost, in fact the people are begging for it. The govt really couldn't have done it without your help.


Welcome to COVID 19 84.

Facts you won't find on the BBC;

In the US hospitalisation rates for the over 65s this year are similar to recent high influenza severity risk seasons while for the under 17 years it's much lower.

Sweden with no lockdown or business closures or the resulting collapse in their economy is no worse off than other countries. Belgium, who introduced hard lockdown very early (see past posts) has the worst record of all for deaths per million pop.

I now believe my original timeline of 2022/2023 being when the vaccine is deemed mandatory is too far away. I have reason to believe it will be sooner. Judging by the sheer number of useful idiots and useless idiots so eager to give up freedom for perceived security, it's happening sooner. Let all of them take the hit and the jab and the chip.

The very few seeing this as a scamdemic need to reorganise their life priorities. Transition over to trading the markets as your main income asap. Other measures need to start rolling.

The ridiculous modelling by 'scientists' and the resultant panic their doomsday outcomes caused verges on the criminal but at least it did make them feel important for a while. The ludicrous thing was that there where perfectly reliable actual stats already coming out of Taiwan, South Korea, Japan.  

Typical are these figures from the US for the state of Florida. Projection vs Actual. The actual (hospital capacity and actual hospitalisations are the 2 lines running along the bottom.

But the best joke is yet to come, it looks like the UK govt is going to double down and make everyone wear a mask after the end of lockdown, you may as well put a clown hat on as well.

So as UK covid deaths reach 30,000 how actually is that number arrived at. Well just list all deaths as covid is one way. Earlier in posts above is reported some weeks ago that testing after death was no longer necessary in the US first then quickly followed by the UK, there just needed to be a suspicion of covid involvement, but things have moved on since then.

Many are coming onto twitter to complain a relative had covid put on the death certificate when they clearly didn't die of covid, here's one.

And from the US a  funeral director saying they are just writing covid on all the death certificates.

For all the clueless dimwits, there is real educational material on this site.

Also, just found out how cheap it was back then to pay off our beloved Matt Hancock to start the ball rolling. Even I can afford it.

I think there is a big opportunity to make specific guaranteed longer term investments here.

    • 5 Best Trend Indicators That Tells You the Direction of the Trend (tradingwithrayner.com)
    • MHRA saying the benefits outweigh the risks of the experimental vaccines for children looks to be a lie. Myocarditis followed by CoViD-19 vaccines: A cause for concern or a reversible minor effect? | The BMJ The experts are saying more research is urgently needed. Children are at no real risk from Covid, mild symptoms and natural immunity thereafter if they do catch it, but but but save granny, the vulnerable have already been vaccinated. So why the push that everyone on the planet gets the jab as soon as possible? SAGE are already suggesting these vaccines don't work and are no more affective than an annual flu shot. Annual flu shots have been around for a long time, they are hit or miss in that they are based on the previous years dominant strain which may or may not be the current season's dominate strain, if not the shots won't work. So the 'booster' shots being planned are really just big pharma continually chasing after the next dominant variant. So this will go on forever. My own immune system works better than that without any experimental mRNA and DNA altering drugs.   Meanwhile the 'Fire Fauci' bill is going ahead plus a public condemnation of the Chinese development of biological weapons.    
    • You need to get hung up on them, because they happen - I know for a fact that during 2007-09 bear market you could have traded long and made money, because I did it, but the easiest route was shorting and down Get a chart WEEKLY of any forex market or commodity - go back as far as poss and notice the big turns/swings - much more volatile than the SP500 - there's a reason for that  I always say anyone who's making a packet from trading or Investing on SP500 etc go have a crack at the forex or commodity markets - the stock markets natural direction is UPWARDS - especially buy and holders, fund managers would get ripped apart on the forex + comm markets OK - Its totally Impossible to know EXACTLY what the SP500 is going to do on a daily/weekly basis, but it WAS possible to know that a) 2007-09 was going to be a bear market before 2007 even arrived and b) that the market would stop around the level it did.  But this is ultra advanced and very few people are bothered about it I've written a thread on Time Cycles on here - it covers what the SP500 is doing in terms of TIME - if you understand it and think about it, it will put you ahead of 99.99999% of traders out there, because these really big corrections and crashes do not happen out of the blue - they are predictable and forecastable with high reliability years in advance  Look at the chart below - think about what I'm saying: In 1909 WD Gann said that markets always seek their gravity centre, the half way point - that's the 50% level to you and I Traders go on about fib levels - the 50% level is clearly much more important a level  What if you KNEW 1974, 2003 and 2009 should be low points? What an opportunity both long and short! This is why I researched and spent hundreds of hours on Time and Time Cycles for - I missed 2000-2009 because I didn't know what I know now, but I know when the next ones are and I have no plans of missing them These are key once in a lifetime turn points that don't happen often So what I'm trying to point out is that on the stock market the big plunges like 07-09 aren't the norm, but they do happen with very regular intervals, that will catch a lot of people out during certain cycles that the market moves through. with regards to identifying bear markets - yes using a MA to say price below this level is bearish, but it's already bearish as it approaches the level if using price formations such as lower lows etc You don't need to know what I've discovered about time to be able to trade successfully - I was just intrigued if it was possible to be able to time the really big turns etc as I'd prefer to to know if it was
