If you are still in stocks you're buggered.....
I saw a swarm of Black Swans migrating......heading south.....last month...
Dow futures currently at -200 +....
And this is before - China militarily invades HK. before Brexit stuffs the EU, before Trump bans Chinese imports, before Australia realises they have nothing more to export to China.....except, hopefully, the dollars the Chinese have spent on our infrastructure, real estate, and agriculture.....The Chinese should be fucked off and reimbursed with their slimy investment here....If they get nasty about it - they shoud be fucked off - without reimbursement....
AND in the meantime, we should be giving base rights to anywhere the US wants to contend with China Inc.....AND we should be looking very hard ourselves at Chinese students and residents, and even 'citizens'...Weed them out and sent the pro-CCP ratbags on their way home........It is not that hard to figure out. I am available, $100 an hour to do that.....to compensate for blind dildos....AFP/ASIO are welcome to contact me.....
Yep, all a guess.
For me , safe property, ie apartments not built in the last 10, maybe 15 years , are worth a look.
It's a minefield, absolutely no guarantees.
As I've said before the IPA has a lot to answer for, seriously, I blame them for the current situation, and the fallout.to come.
Assholes , who dont care.
i got some very nice prices in 2011 and 2012
i should be able to ride out the drama
and also M&A activity is also evicting me from several holdings automatically crystallizing profits ,
now ( imo ) entry price is important here ( and those buying near the bottom of the GFC would be better positioned than me )
( and the last property i bought was in 1975 , so even the stamp-duty if i sold it would be more than the official purchase price )
but obviously recent investors should be taking extreme care ( especially if they have current debt obligations ))
No support anywhere. All governments do, including the "Federal" Reserve, is throw billions of dollars in to their markets. This has a band aid effect for about a day then down their market go again. But they will still do it. I think Einstein said something like this: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is insanity.

"Europe’s stock markets tanked again on Wednesday amid fears that increasingly extravagant government support measures ($1.2 trillion from the U.S., $400 billion from the U.K., $220 billion from Spain announced in the space of the last 24 hours) still aren’t keeping pace with the spread of the Covid-19 virus."..........Investing.com
but it is all about saving the bond markets ( and a LOT of those corporate bonds are issued by the banks like our BIG 4 )
how would the world banking system be trusted if it proved itself to be a huge pus-filled boil ( it already is , but the poor trusting plebs believe they are 'unquestionably strong ' )
how are the banks going to steal the pleb's money if nobody will leave money with them
the government would be happy if they did .. undoubtedly
but the game is all about debt
the plebs defaulting on mortgages , car loans , , education debt , credit cards or even unable to pay the rates or power bills , a wave of business bankruptcies ( on top of the own's we have had already , and then there is council and state debts ( and all the default swaps taken out on those loans )
a wave of defaults in any sector will unravel our current debt shell game ( remember all those debt instruments are 'assets' on somebody else's balance sheet ( which they probably have borrowed against )
