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

Welcome to Communist Britain :D

We feel bad for the Jewish population during Hitler's time. Yet we feel socially responsible when we are treated the same today. But don't worry, more rights will be eroded soon and we will be thankful for those measures.

The protocols have been activated ... the communist state is in full force :D

Remember!  It is your duty to protect the NHS, not the NHS duty to protect you :P

“The legal instructions on not leaving your home without a reasonable excuse apply to everyone,” Chief Constable Iain Livingstone said in a statement.

Don't really watch so much circus shows but heard Boris has gone back to hospital for more tests after he was tested positve before. More tests, more acting.

 

Sorry, the Oscar award for best actor does not go to him.

EU #ExitStrategy will be adopted tomorrow, a Commission spokesperson says. It follows Austria, Denmark and Croatia's adoption of their own national strategies yesterday. They did inform the EU beforehand, he says. Timeline sped up for fear of EU coordination being preempted.

Remember ... we need to be prepared to lose loved ones before their time.

And ... we are to show good-humoured British resolve.

So, no point worrying about the t*sser :)

The EU same as the WHO have done nothing to help, EU more concerned with signing up new countries than aiding Italy. Now that countries have started releasing their own timetable for ending lockdown the EU has decided it had better do something and so has been forced to devise a coordinated EU exit strategy.

What exactly do countries like Italy get out of EU membership?

I also read that the EU court has ruled Greece was unlawful in preventing asylum seekers coming in during the epidemic, so that will be another fine for a country already long under the cosh of international banksters.

Italians have spent the last 2 weeks filming themselves burning EU flags to post on SM.😳

I will not be surprised if the Italian government will soon have to put all the art collection plus the museum buildings as collateral to get loans. This is what they get for being stuck in the EU trap.

I have a new business idea for to be bankrupted citizens to earn a living. They could transition over to acting. They probabaly won't fake death but I am sure they can fake sickness lying in bed covered by a face mask. These roles will be in high demand.

needed O2 which is standard for pneumonia but never needed intubation (tube inserted for ventilator hook up).

I'm sure he would love having a tube inserted up his rectum.

can't be left behind and the early modelling projections, esp for the US, were way too dramatic, and besides people (and businesses) really are running out of money.

If I was a betting man, I'd still bet against a general 'reopening' before end of this month (April).  🤔

expecting a staged exit from lockdown starting some time soon after Easter eg as Austria announced yesterday.

"How will UK lockdown be lifted? (after the flattening of the infection rate curve)

There’s been no official advice or information on this but judging by the plan from across Europe it will be gradual."

"For example, Austria will be reopening small shops first, Denmark is encouraging ‘staggered working’ so not everyone will be suing public transport at one time and Germany will consider opening some restaurants if the contagion rate stays low."

    • 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    
    • These are relatively rare events but I do find myself getting hung up on them. 
    • If we take the 2008 decline on the US500, I've attached a daily chart of this. You'd be better off shorting but of course you don't know that it's going to be an ongoing decline and the risk potentially is that you switch to a short preference and then the market does revert back to an upward trend. The market stayed below the 100 day MA for an extended time so maybe that's an indication of which way to trade but I know it's not always reliable. Probably also helps if you use a trailing stop at least to minimise damage.
