Covid and the Economy


Recommended Posts

lol, hearing about people getting 'strong pain killers' - one of the side effects of opiate-based medications is that it causes shortness of breath, and in some cases asphyxiation.  Dumb f*ks.

The official Covid model just re-adjusted again and now says peak resource need for US is 3 days away. Projected hospitalizations way down again to just 94k nationally. Remember the prior estimates for 200k+ beds already factored in social distancing.

Doesn't matter.  People are now locked psychologically into 'virus mode'.  Even after curbs are lifted, it will take a long time for people to change their minds again.

It's just the madness of the crowd.  Don't try and put facts in the way of people's feelings.

The Government's emergency Cobra committee will meet later to discuss how long the UK will remain under coronavirus lockdown, Monday will mark 3 weeks since Boris Johnson ordered non-essential business & schools to close. Follow the news as it happens:

Interesting fact. Both CDC and Johns Hopkins receives private funding. They are not government organisations. The current WHO chief was selected for his incredible track record. He was involved in a few cover ups in Africa which makes him ideal for the job.

People might wonder who funds WHO.  People might also wonder who provides the private funding to CDC and Johns Hopkins.

Hint...the advocates pushing for vaccine and microchip.

"Professor Didier Raoult has just released the results of a new Hydroxychloroquine treatment study involving 1061 patients. It shows after being treated with Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin, a complete virological cure was obtained in 91.7% of patients within 10 days."

Woman at Tesco today was asking whether the trolleys had been disinfected yet.

This thing ain't going away for a long, long time.  There are some neurotic women who will have a phobia of touching things in public for the rest of their lives.

"Britain not doing too badly when you look at the figures adjusted for the size of population"

(see graph)

Interestingly Belgium has the steepest rise in fatalities per million and third worst total so far but had the earliest and most stringent lockdown.

"The country currently has 85,200 confirmed cases of Covid-19, resulting in more than 10,600 deaths, according to a tally maintained by Johns Hopkins University."

All you need to know.

By the way, do we expect Boris to go back in again for more tests to divert attention when more suspecting public call this scamdemic?🤔🤔

Given that there is on average 10,000 flu deaths and 20,000 pneumonia deaths each year this year could still turn out to be below average. Rumours out of the US say Drs are being coached to call all pneumonia deaths Covid tested or not which could be why we get the chart below posted earlier (pneumonia deaths each week in the US way down this year).

So all those news stories about Britain being the "worst hit in Europe" were.....

Same people who will compare the raw death rate in the USA vs Belgium probably.

I do think we are close to the point this changes from a medical issue to a political issue. We cant stay in lockdown forever, and people will get ill when we undo the lockdown. Its just a question of how many vs crippling the economy.

The ONS have just published registered deaths up to 3 April: https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/birthsdeathsandmarriages/deaths/bulletins/deathsregisteredweeklyinenglandandwalesprovisional/weekending3april2020

I'm afraid it looks like the death rate from COVID-19 is going to be a lot higher than currently projected. The interesting comparison is the variation from the 5 year average (the top two lines) as this removes uncertainty about testing, deaths at home/hospital etc:

yes, a very interesting uptick starting week 13 (March 23rd).

Worst week for deaths in England and Wales since records began

 

Article states: Covid-19 outbreak is deadlier than any UK flu epidemic, official data show

 

These documentaries are both scary and educational:

 

The Flu That Killed 50 Million

 

I would pay particular attention to the difference in outcomes by those authorities that did and those that did not head the warnings of public health officials.

Suspected covid involvement now enough for listing as cause of death.

Stats from ONS on week ending 2 April;

Total covid (week) 3,475

over 65 age group 3,020 (87%)

zero deaths in the under 14 age group.

I would urge you to take the vaccine when it is released. It will be good for you because Dr Fauci "$100 Million donation" told you.

The world has gone crazy.

Bill Gates being attacked by conspiracy theorists, no evidence for any of this other than "it's on Twitter". This used to be a reasonable discussion forum....Maybe I should post some screenshots from Twitter arguing that that earth is flat!

oh dear , Gates just keeps popping up again and again.

The truth is that President Donald Trump is locked in an intense power struggle with Bill Gates, who is pushing his vaccines, which may not be available to the public until after November’s election.

    • 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.
