BLM = black lives marxist.  
If you are a trader you not a Marxist (or even a 'socialist').  They are mutually exclusive.  In Marxism, value is assigned.  Traders negotiate value.  
Marxism systemically exploits those who will produce, ostensibly to support those who ‘cannot’ produce... but it really never works out that way ... bcse Marxism doesn’t ultimately care one bit about those who cannot produce...  I’m just sayin

Why does this happen? Because pea-brained celebrities that are idolized like @KingJames tell young black men that they are “literally being hunted”. This is the natural result of such hyperbolic, dishonest rhetoric.

The racist, anti-police, black lives matter LIE is to blame.

Why else does this happen? Because when pea-brained athletes put the name of an alleged RAPIST on their helmets and jerseys, criminals begin believing they are acting as heroes.

BLACK LIVES MATTER AND THE COMPLICIT MEDIA ORGANIZATIONS, ATHLETES, AND ENTERTAINERS ARE TO BLAME.

"I use the word derealization to describe the inner disconnect between what we experience and what the propaganda / marketing complex we live in tells us we should be experiencing.

Put another way: our lived experience is derealized (dismissed as not real) by official spin and propaganda."

...

It is because of the mad mathematical modelers. The academic epidemiologists. Neil Ferguson, and others of his ilk. When they were guessing (sorry estimating, sorry modelling) the impact of COVID they used a figure of approximately one per cent as the infection fatality rate. Not the case fatality rate. In so doing, they overestimated the likely impact of COVID by, at the very least, ten-fold.

...

So yes, it does seem that ‘the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza.’

Wise words, wise words indeed. Words that were written by one Anthony S Fauci on the 28th of February 2020. If you haven’t heard of him, look him up.

Critically though, eleven days after this, he rather blotted his copybook, because he went on to say this “The flu has a mortality rate of 0.1 percent. This (COVID) has a mortality rate of 10 times that. That’s the reason I want to emphasize we have to stay ahead of the game in preventing this.”

The mortality rate Dr Fauci? Could it possibly be that he failed to understand that there is no such thing as a mortality rate? Did he mean the case fatality rate, or the infection fatality rate? If he meant the Infection mortality rate of influenza, he was pretty much bang on. If he meant the case fatality rate, he was wrong by a factor of ten.

The reality is that, no matter what Fauci went on to say, severe influenza has a case fatality rate of 1%, and so does COVID. They also have approximately the same infection fatality fate of 0.1%.

It seems that Dr Fauci just got mixed up with the terminology. Because in his Journal article eleven days earlier, he did state… ‘This suggests that the overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza… [and here is the kicker at the end] (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1%).’

You see, he did say the case fatality rate of influenza was approximately 0.1%. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong… wrong.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. With influenza, Dr Fauci, the CDC, his co-authors, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the National Institutes of Health and the New England Journal of Medicine got case fatality rate and infection fatality rate mixed up with influenza. Easy mistake to make. Could have done it myself. But didn’t.

You want to know where Imperial College London really got their 1% infection fatality rate figure from? It seems clear that they got it from Anthony S Fauci and the New England Journal of Medicine. The highest impact journal in the world – which should have the highest impact proof-readers in the world. But clearly does not.

Imperial College then used this wrong NEJM influenza case fatality rate 0.1%. It seems that they then compared this 0.1% figure to the reported COVID case fatality rate, estimated to be 1% and multiplied the impact of COVID by ten – as you would. As you probably should.

So, we got Lockdown. The US used the Fauci figure and got locked down. The world used that figure and got locked down.

That figure just happens to be ten times too high.

I know it is going to be virtually impossible to walk the world back from having made such a ridiculous, stupid, mistake. There are so many reputations at stake. The entire egg production of the world will be required to supply enough yolk to cover appropriate faces.

Of course, it will be denied, absolutely, vehemently, angrily, that anyone got anything wrong. It will be denied that a simple error, a mix up between case fatality and infection fatality led to this. It will even more forcefully stated that COVID remains a deadly killer disease and that all Governments around the world have done exactly the right thing. The actions were right, the models were correct. We all did the RIGHT thing. Only those who are stupid, or incompetent cannot see it.

When wrong, shout louder, get angry, double-down, attack your critics in any way possible. Accuse them of being anti-vaxx, or something of the sort. Dig for the dirt. ‘How to succeed in politics 101, page one, paragraph one.’

However, just have a look, at the figures. Tell me where they are wrong – if you can.

The truth is that this particular Emperor has no clothes on and is, currently, standing bollock naked, right in front of you. Hard to believe, but true.

I would like to thank Ronald B Brown for pointing out this catastrophic error, in his article ‘Public health lessons learned from biases in coronavirus mortality overestimation.’  I had not spotted it. He did. All credit is his. I am simply drawing your attention to what has simply been – probably the biggest single mistake that has ever been made in the history of the world.

...

This "inflation" of asset valuations makes those who already own these assets richer, while impoverishing those who must buy them with wages that are losing purchasing power. The Fed doesn't care if small businesses go broke or households slide into poverty; the Fed's only concerns are maintaining "inflation" in asset valuations and "deflation" in the cost of borrowing, so that debt-serfs, zombie corporations, local and federal government--everyone--can borrow more money, further enriching banks and Wall Street.

This is [and always has been  ... since long before Jekyll Island (italics mine) ] the sole goal of the Fed. Everything else is distracting PR.

As I often say: if you don't change the way money is created and distributed, you've changed nothing. If you don't change the means of acquiring capital and political power, you've changed nothing. If you don't change labor's share of the economy, you've changed nothing.

Money-printing, inflation and "socialism-light" are just what the super-wealthy ordered: so by all means spark runaway inflation with "free" (heh) bread and circuses, provide trillions in "stimulus"to corrupt insiders, industry giveaways (New Green Deal, carbon credits, etc.), and slap a feel-good "wealth tax" that mysteriously misses the super-wealthy but guts the tattered remains of the productive class.

"The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the state houses, the city halls. They got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies, so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying. Lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well-informed, well-educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. They want obedient workers. Obedient workers, people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork…. It’s a big club and you ain't in it. You and I are not in the big club. ...The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged and nobody seems to notice…. Nobody seems to care. That’s what the owners count on…. It’s called the American Dream, 'cause you have to be asleep to believe it."

“There is no bull market without intervention.”  Sven Henrich

“There is no bull market” zdo  As I have mentioned several times on TL, the dow would have to be past 37000 to be in a bull market... interestingly though, that number has dropped in last few months from 38000.  Only the second time it has decreased since I started running the algorithm years ago.

 

 

 

Meanwhile back at the plandemic.  High on dexamethasone , Trump is not afraid of Covidity1984 ‘anymore’.  If you really not afraid, Donald, it’s time to get out of the vaccine mob - Now! .  "Vaccination" as an alternative to a healthy body does not work!  I’m not just sayin’

You live in a crazy world ... I’m just sayin’ .  Day by day, you live more and more in a world in which facts no longer matter.  ... I’m just sayin’

Children at an elementary school in Virginia are being taught that traits such as “objectivity” and “perfectionism” are ‘racist’ characteristics of “white supremacy.”

The “15 characteristics of white supremacy” include “perfectionism,” a “sense of urgency,” “individualism,” and “objectivity.”

Uh oh that makes people like Kobe Bryant a white supremacist because he worked  extremely hard to perfect his game, he brought a sense of urgency to each moment, he lived true to himself instead of following the crowd,  he attempted to see things as they are... setting a bad example for kids all over the freaking world... I’m just sayin’

    • EURUSD RISKS DEEPER DECLINE AT 1.1800 LEVEL ON SURGE IN EUROPE COVID-19 CASES EURUSD Price Analysis – October 26 Growing fears of a surge in Europe Covid-19 cases may slowdown economic recovery as new infections trigger stricter measures and prompt investors into safety. EURUSD risks a deeper decline at the 1.1800 level as buyers repeatedly failed to make a sustained break above the daily cloud top around the 1.1850 level. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 1.2150, 1.2011, 1.1917 Support Levels: 1.1807, 1.1612, 1.1422 EURUSD Long-term Trend: Ranging EURUSD is under pressure, trading near the 1.1810 level, and is in danger of further falling. The EURUSD rally appears to have hit a decent barrier at recent highs around 1.1880. A break of this area is expected to push the pair higher towards the 1.1917 area as the bullish trend is expected to resume at the key level. In a broader context, the rise from 1.0635 is seen as the third phase of the pattern from 1.0339 (low). A further rally towards the cluster resistance at 1.2011 can be seen. This will remain a preferable case as long as the resistance at 1.1422 is held and turned into support. EURUSD Short-term Trend: Ranging EURUSD intraday trend stays neutral as consolidation from 1.1880 regions continues. Nevertheless, further growth stays in favor while maintaining the support level of 1.1685. The break into 1.1880 regions will be a test at the 1.2011 high. The 4 hours chart shows that the pair is developing below the moderately bearish 5 and 13 moving averages. A move below 1.1800 is needed to mark an immediate (minor) high for a pullback to the bottom of the short-term channel seen at 1.1725. On the other hand, a breakout of 1.1685 is likely to extend the corrective pattern from 1.2011 by one more phase. Intraday bias will return to the downside towards 1.1612 and below.

    • Date : 26th October 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.A gigantic week is coming with FAANGs reporting their Q3 earnings, along with the rate decisions and monetary policy statements from three key Central Banks (ECB, BoJ, and BoC) as the second wave of Covid-19 is hitting the world with full force. Across the Atlantic, all eyes will be also on what emerges from the Brexit talks and how markets will reform in the final week prior to the US Elections. Focus will be on inflation data from the biggest economies in the world, including the US, China and Europe. Monday – 26 October 2020   German IFO (EUR, GMT 09:00) – German IFO business confidence is expected to slip slightly to 92.9 in October after the jump seen in September to 93.4. New Home Sales (USD, GMT 14:00) – New home sales are seen at -1.1% in September after a drop-back to a 1,000k pace from a 14-year high of 1,011k in August, versus a prior high of 965k in July. With the economy’s reopening, the recovery for new home construction and sales is proving much faster than for the rest of the economy, partly due to solid fundamentals going into the crisis, and even lower mortgage rates now. Tuesday – 27 October 2020   ECB Bank Lending Survey (EUR, GMT 09:00) Durable Goods (USD, GMT 12:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to drop -0.7% in September with a 3.0% decline in transportation orders. The durable orders rise ex-transportation is pegged at 0.4%. A defense orders gain is pegged at 4.0%, following a -3.6% August correction. Boeing orders fell back to zero planes in September from 8 in August and zero in July. Wednesday – 28 October 2020   Consumer Price Index (AUD, GMT 00:30) – Australian inflation data in Q2 was moderate but in line with projections and remained within the average rate of increase between 2% and 3% that the RBA targets over the medium term. The RBA trimmed mean CPI for Q3 is seen at 0.1% q/q. Interest Rate Decision and Conference (CAD, GMT 14:00) – In September, the Bank of Canada maintained an aggressive stimulus posture, reiterating forward guidance and the continuation of its QE program until “the recovery is well underway.” However, the BoC removed its promise to “provide further monetary stimulus as needed,” keeping its commitment to hold rates at current levels and maintain the asset purchase program at the current pace. The policy rate was held steady at 0.25%, and it is expected to be maintained in this meeting as well. Thursday – 29 October 2020   Interest Rate Decision and Conference (JPY, GMT 03:00) – The Bank of Japan remains pledged to do whatever it takes to support the recovery. The BoJ minutes last time highlighted that some council members are becoming concerned that virus developments will negatively impact the recovery. On the political front, PM Suga is expected to maintain policy continuity. Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 12:30) – Gross Domestic Product should advance in Q3 and reveal headline growth of 33.5%, with a reversal in the inventory trajectory from a record-liquidation rate of -$287 bln in Q2 to a $12 bln accumulation rate in Q3, as the inventory figures begin a long rebuild into early-2021. Interest Rate Decision and Conference (EUR, GMT 12:45 & 13:30) – More than data releases, it is developments on the virus front that will have strengthened the dovish camp at the ECB. The number of new infections, but also hospital admissions and deaths, continues to rise across Europe, with Ireland just announcing a full lockdown until early December. Developments are adding to pressure on the central bank to act sooner rather than later, and the debate at next week’s ECB meeting will likely be lively, although on balance Lagarde is expected to hold fire for now and focus on a dovish presser that will lay the ground for a PEPP extension in early December. Friday – 30 October 2020   Retail Sales and GDP (EUR, GMT 07:00) – The German Retail sales are seen at 4.2% y/y in September from 3.7% y/y last month. The final Gross Domestic Product in Germany for Q3 is seen at -8.9% q/q from 9.7%. Gross Domestic Product and Consumer Price Index (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Fears of a double dip recession are on the rise, with preliminary Q3 GDP s.a. numbers likely to show the index down to 16.9% y/y from -14.7%. The Euro Area preliminary CPI is anticipated at -0.4% y/y in October with core reading at 0.5% y/y from 0.2% y/y last month. Personal Income/Consumption (USD, GMT 12:30) – A 0.3% increase in personal income in September is anticipated after a -2.7% decrease in August, alongside a 1.1% climb in consumption after a 1.0% bounce in August.

    • BITCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS: COULD CBDCS BE THE END OF BITCOIN? Ever since Facebook publicized its plans to develop a digital currency called Libra, central banks across the globe have tried to counter it with their cryptocurrency. While Facebook’s Libra has come under heavy scrutiny and regulatory obstacles, more than 80% of the world’s central banks are working assiduously to develop a central bank digital currency (CBDC). Meanwhile, the foundational basis of a CBDC is fundamentally disparate to what Bitcoin (BTC) is about. That said, the cryptocurrency community has begun speculating what the effect of a government-issued digital currency would have on the benchmark cryptocurrency. Below are some of the possible outcomes of CBDCs on Bitcoin: Plot A The common expectation is that CBDCs will be bad for Bitcoin and the crypto industry at large, considering that world governments will place their weight behind CBDCs giving it a higher adoption rate compared to BTC. Plot B The next popular opinion is that CBDCs could give Bitcoin better widespread use and adoption, as it could spark heightened interest in digital currencies. Plot C Assuming that Plot A comes into fruition, there would be no use for Bitcoin as a peer-to-peer payment system. However, this doesn’t mean BTC becomes useless, instead, it becomes an excellent store of value. BTCUSD -4-Hour Chart Key BTC Levels to Watch in the Near-Term Bitcoin, against popular belief, doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. The cryptocurrency just recorded a new YTD high at $13,357 in the past 24 hours. BTC has been trading within a consolidation range between $13,300 and $12,895 for the past four days, as traders expect a fresh bull wave. That said, as long as Bitcoin maintains its stance above the $12,895 support, we could see a fresh bull wave in the coming days. A sustained fall below the aforementioned support could trigger an extended retracement for the cryptocurrency.

    • ETHEREUM (ETH) PRICE ANALYSIS: ETH FACES REJECTION AT $420, FLUCTUATES BETWEEN LEVELS $400 AND $420 Key Highlights Ethereum battles resistance at level $420 high The coin is likely to reach another high of $434 Ethereum (ETH) Current Statistics The current price: $415.57 Market Capitalization: $47,020,287,242 Trading Volume: $12,506,980,622 Major supply zones: $280, $320, $360 Major demand zones: $160, $140, $100 Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis October 25, 2020 Following the breaking of the $395 overhead resistance, Ethereum resumed upside momentum. However, the coin rallied to a high of $420 and was resisted. Since October 22, the upward move has been resisted as the coin resumed a sideways trend below the resistance. On the upside, if the price breaks the current resistance, the coin will resume the uptrend. However, Ether will face another resistance at $440. The coin will rally to $480 if the current resistance is broken. ETH/USD – Daily Chart ETH Technical Indicators Reading The 21-day and 50-day SMAs are sloping upward indicating the uptrend. Ether has risen to level 65 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. It indicates that the market is in the bullish trend zone. The coin is approaching the resistance line of the ascending channel. A break above it will push the coin upward. ETH/USD – Daily Chart Conclusion Ethereum will rise after breaking the resistance at $420. The Fibonacci tool analysis has indicated an upward move to level 1.618 Fibonacci extensions. The market will reach another high of $434.55. Source: https://learn2.trade
