WuFlu 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.

    • I think most professional traders have that methodology and mindset its what sets us apart from the rest I don't look at the VIX, as with cycles for you, the VIX isn't of interest to me, done perfectly well without the need for it so far and that won't change going forward  
    • Ultimately what ever happens regarding " cycles" will be of no help to me . I am my own trader    Re volatility , its my niche , My models pick up most swings high and low .  My methods are recactive not so much predictive .   Its doesnt matter where it goes as long as it goes  .  1 year predictions are just a little fun with no weight in my profitability . Most years are up so just on that you should be bullish year on year and you will be right more times than not  .  I dont care if i am right or wrong . I left my ego behind a while back  .  Vix hasnt been around long enough to have a handle on its efficacy but i have done studies on realised volatility back multi decades and i put some credence in my conclusion  , but once again it will have zero influence on my returns unlike most  . We know there are no absolutes in this game , just probabilities and possibilities , define the former and manage the latter and it takes care of itself   ..  rock on   Wise words 
    • Can anyone help me understand why i am not seeing any market depth data for some shares? For example, the pic below is what i see for SThree plc (STEM) in my share dealing / isa account. I am seeing market depth for other shares, so it is just a case that there is no market in this share? I find this a bit strange given that it is listed on the main market. Is it some sort of bug in the trading platform?
