    Default Negative Financial News

    I just read this fear porn, here is an example of the upside down & backward thesis:

    Would you be prepared if the Dow Jones Industrial Average were to fall 5,700 points?

    This was front page headlines on Market Watch:

    https://www.marketwatch.com/

    Here some more titles to their articles:

    .This troubling trend may wreak havoc on the stock market, analysts warn
    .Short-term boost or ‘the trigger that kicks off a brutal, worldwide, financial crisis?’
    .Be wary of ‘dead cat bounce’ because more pain lies ahead: Morgan Stanley’s Wilson
    .The real reason value and small-cap stocks lag the market
    .Market Snapshot: U.S. stocks lose ground as earnings season heats up

    Do you see a trend? .. negative reporting to make one move in the direction they want. I can't say for sure that it's to make Trump look bad, but if the market falters he will be blamed. This has been going on for sometime (24 months). Just another media outlet with an agenda.I realize they are owned by News Corp, Barrons,and The Wall Street Journal belong under them. There has been a lot of talk about a economic collapse, even here on this forum.
    I hope people will see thru the propaganda. How much money that hasn't be made because of this fear. They have you 2 ways... 1 . you don't invest, so you don't make any money... 2nd ..you have missed the biggest run in the market in years because they have scared you with the talk of a collapse. Think about it, if there is a financial collapse , what you have in U.S. dollars will be useless. Your dollars worth nothing, they won't let that happen. Yes, "the powers that be" won't let that happen, they are making huge fortunes off of this. And your not and you know, they don't care about you.

    This correction happens every 7 to 10 years.

    If the correction is 10% it can't compare in the 40% increase in 24 months ... don't fall for the collapse. I'm not Ben Fulford but,....... the sky is not falling.

    Oh, it's coming. I doubt we see 5700, but the market is way too inflated and there is a definite correction coming.

    If you look at all the major bad new bears, you'll find they're all pushing gold, which has been dead for 7 years despite their efforts. When gold was peaking in early 2011, many were saying it would go to $5k/oz. I'm not saying their ideas aren't valid, but you should keep in mind an advisor's vested interest.

    Thumbs down Re: Negative Financial News

    Well, commodities are very cheap now. Not that I'm an expert, but considering many factors, there is a good valid reason to purchase some precious metals now or just AFter the next market correction.

    I should add, for those that feel the gloom and doom, and are worried about things in general, STart with upping your vitamin B1 levels. I like a shot of 2-3 raw egg yolks in a glass of plain grass fed kefir. Try this for 2 weeks and you should feel calmer. I would actually make this a prerequisite for joining Avalon 😉

    Looks like a sizeable correction is in the making which is quite normal as are huge unpayable state debts. Because the world is all interconnected it is in no ones interest to have a huge collapse unless its intentional.

    1.Will Central Banks keep intervening – quantitive easing – cheap money?
    2.Will Central Banks continue purchasing Facebook, Apple, Amazon and Netflicks (FAANG stocks) stocks to prop up the stock market
    3. Will Corporations continue purchasing their own shares
    4. Will any trade war escalate?
    5. Will war escalate in the Middle East and spread wider?
    6 Will the Dollar fall significantly?

    I just want to say there is a difference between a correction and a collapse. There is no collapse coming ....
