Another crisis is coming.
Who will strike first / be stricken and how to prepare?
Some Questions and Answers

Preamble: Lehman Brothers filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on September 15, 2008. DJIA dropped 4.5% that day.
How to recognize a crisis

Conventional thinking and propaganda by establishments various experts (ministers - authorities - economists):
The crisis is known only when it hits. The crisis can not be predicted. If we could foresee it, I believe we would do our best to prevent it.

A crisis is more than just a normal cycle of the economy - a recession that is simply defined as the performance of the economy declines consecutively in two quarters. The crisis is a big problem, the order is collapsing as a house of cards - one problem infects the rest and as a rapid contagion spreads through the whole organism - the economy. It requires rapid intervention.

How long does it take.
• How long do the crisis last and how do we know the crisis is over?
Most crises in the advanced world are counted in units of years. In emerging economies it may be the decade - the decade lost.

A crisis ends when the economy collapses and the situation stabilizes. Theoretically, this is simply defined as the economy is growing two quarters in succession. But the crisis is often the father of a deep recession from which the economy can wobble for a long time, and then it can only grow poorly, as was the case with the latest global financial crisis. In this context, there is talk of so-called secular stagnation.

How to avoid it?
• How do crises come about and why they can be avoided, for example, by state economies being satisfied with "sustainable" stagnation and unwilling to show just steady growth?

A crisis is in some way a radical cleansing process, separating "weak from strong", something like evolution. It fully reveals what is wrong, and separates the grain from the chaff. The crisis is a crash of accumulated problems. The earlier the accumulated problems cause a crisis, the more bearable and less devastating the crisis.

However, the economy can not be "preserved", protecting it from change, so as the state of "sustainable" stagnation could come to a crisis.

The most vulnerable sector(s).
• Which sectors are the most vulnerable in a crisis?
Which sectors can - on the contrary - profit?

A crisis can be of several species. In today's world, the most vulnerable are finances that trigger financial crises. This is due to their size, which has grown paradoxically after the global financial crisis, and their connection to the economy mainly through loans or debts.

Commercial wars can trigger business crises and mineral crisis can occur in a situation where a rare and hardly substitutable mineral occurs.

Irrespective of the type of crisis, the sectors most heavily affected are the sectors heavily dependent on consumption. The so-called "early birds" are, for example, adventurous businesses and, in the case of production, transport services - namely truck transport.

The most vulnerable sector - luxury goes aside.
• We must not forget the automotive industry, which is the representative of the so-called "luxury goods" that people stop buying as soon as they experience the first signs of uncertainty and fear. Once people are afraid of the future, they will not buy a new car, jewelry, or a luxury holiday.

By contrast, fields that are more connected to the state and are handling state orders are more stable. But in the event of sudden cuts in purchases and orders by the state these sectors will not be spared either. In general, however, the recession will come later.

The crisis can also be a catastrophe of change, and "Revolution" can bring new opportunities for new or existing but flexible firms. Today we call this the start-ups sector.

How to handle a crisis as an employee.
• From an employee's point of view, how can one prepare self to best survive a crisis ?
Do not sleep on laurels. Watch what's happening in the world. Everyone should have some alternative solutions to what to do when the situation in the field becomes complicated and be ready for change and lifelong learning.

The employee, as well as the firm or the state, should create reserves, saving for worse times, always thinking of the back door and mitigating risks.

When the next crisis strikes.
• When is the next crisis more likely to happen and in what sector will it occur?

Allegedly crisis can not be predicted. It can be sened, be documented and disused and argued about partial problems such as, and still (even greater) government and household indebtedness, rising borrowing rates, cooling economies, lack of people in the labor market, enormous pressure on wage growth, trade wars, unpleasant fears of brexit, financial problems of emerging economies, China's rapid cooling

The above-mentioned factors are so-called known unknowns according to the English term "known unknowns". "Known unknowns" (for example, still high debt) are a well-known problem. If we do not address them, it is threatened, as happened in 2007-8, that one problem will break into other problems.

The crisis of poor mortgages will become a financial crisis (huge losses of banks from poor credit), a crisis of confidence (financial institutions have not trusted and stopped lending each other) and all this leads to a deep economic downturn. One problem, as a harmful and insidious bacillus spreads throughout the body - the economy - and the result is all that affects the recession.

When the next crisis strikes - the sequel.
• The problem of today's economy is in the interconnectedness of everything with everything. The global financial crisis has clearly shown how an overwhelming financial sector can strike a deep blow to the whole economy by shutting it off from sources - loans that hae turned into addition.

But the problem can come in the form of the so-called black swan entirely from another side ... then we have to deal with "unknown unknowns," with strangers unknown. They can not be predicted at all, nor can they be prepared for them.

Due to all the signals, fear is that the world economy is on the verge of a slowdown. If we are slowing down into recession, one can not guess yet. So far we know of partial problems that have potential and strength together with other unfavorable factors of recession.

Thus, the crisis can come from the financial sector again due to the amount of debt. However, the states themselves can well make a crisis, since they are the ones who have been the most indebted for the last decade and their debt is still growing. There may be a number of even partial state bankruptcies, particularly in emerging economies, which claim to be unable to pay the bond issue - and trigger the earthquake on the financial markets.

However, the crisis may also come from the real economy - innovation and the so-called Industry 4.0 can bring about changes, that some firms and then entire sectors and then whole economy "will not digest". Before emerging and establishing new businesses / sectors, the economy may experience a severe recession. An example may be the electrification of cars which, if overburdened and hurried by government intervention (regulation or too expensive price subsidies), can lead to the rapid disappearance of sectors such as parts suppliers to cars with internal combustion engines. Before creating new companies supplying electrical components, the entire eco-system of automotive suppliers may be considerably less sophisticated. And this is an example of a significant risk for countries where the automotive industry plays an important role

How to prepare for the crisis.
• How should people in general be prepared to cope with a crisis so as to best withstand it?
The golden rule is to have financial reserves and to think backwards, specifically to make a reserve in advance that is sufficient to cover family expenses for 4 to 5 months.

And it's important to realize that nothing lasts forever. Best not to be subject to the illusion that the current real estate price growth, historically highest employment, rapid wage growth, and so on are here for ever.

On the other hand, when it's not about life, it's about nothing. We have to learn to live with crises and take them as a natural part of being.

Luck favours those who are prepared.

... experts and decision makers ....

The Global Risks Report 2019, published by the World Economic Forum and based on a survey or more than 1,000 experts and decision makers around the world, found climate change risks at their highest-ever level, accounting for more than half of the top 10 risks. Experts are increasingly concerned ... .. ... and Mindy Lubber, chief executive of the sustainability-oriented nonprofit Ceres, said the report’s findings on climate change are “more compelling, more concerning and more extreme” than in previous years.

“To effectively respond to climate change requires a significant increase in infrastructure to adapt to this new environment and transition to a low-carbon economy,” Alison Martin, Group Chief Risk Officer at Zurich Insurance Group, said in the report. “By 2040, the investment gap in global infrastructure is forecast to reach $18 trillion against a projected requirement of $97 trillion. Against this backdrop, we strongly recommend that businesses develop a climate resilience adaptation strategy and act on it now.”

Pondering Powell.
The Fed deliberately created the "Everything Bubble" so that it could be deliberately imploded at the proper time - in other words, the crash we have been witnessing so far during the final quarter of 2018 and continuing into 2019 is a controlled demolition of the economy. Jerome Powell is not some "rebel" going against the easy money dictates of the Fed. Jerome Powell is playing the role that has been given to him. Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen's job was to inflate the bubble. Jerome Powell's job is to crash the bubble.

This process of controlled demolition needs a considerable distraction so that the central banks and the globalists ultimately avoid blame for the painful consequences of the event.

Enter Donald Trump and the false Trump vs. Globalist paradigm.

Because "could" is not "will"

An interesting couple of observations in the piece that - to me - serve as reminder of the insidiousness of things "investing" and "financial"

"The spot energy index in the S&P Goldman Sachs Commodity Index (GSCI) gained 25 percent between January and October. But with the books closed on 2018, the index ended the year down 21 percent. "

However a more impactful / instructional number is the difference between the Index's high and year's close: Oct 3rd 2018 505.55 (367.29 dec 24 low) and 374.33 dec 31 = -25.96%.

The other - again to me - noteworthy clip is ..."the strategy for oil and gas executives to appease investors is to focus on “quick cash, quarterly payouts and fast talk,” Sanzillo says. “Either way the stocks lack a long-term value rationale.”

which relates to my earlier screams on the forum that jerome FED's duty and mission is to take and keep away money from wrong hands.

Looking at jerome's Friday performance and market reaction evidence it would appear that, at least in round one, I was wrong about jerome as he blinked.

.... Asked about Monday’s stock market plunge and his attitude toward Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell, whom he appointed but has also blamed for the recent market woes, Trump said: “We’ll see” and that he lacked confidence in Powell.

The president has been enraged over the Fed’s decision to raise interest rates in light of the strong overall economy.

“They’re raising interest rates too fast, that’s my opinion. I shouldn’t have confidence. They’re raising rates too fast because they think the economy is so good. But I think they will get it pretty soon. I really do,” Trump said, a day after the Dow lost more than 650 points and fell 2.9 percent — the worst Christmas Eve performance ever.

“I mean, the fact is that the economy is doing so well that they raised interest rates and. President Obama had a very low-interest rate. We have a normalized interest rate, a normalized interest rate, it’s good for a lot of people. They have money in the bank, they get interest on their money,” he said. .../..

How I learned to love a good downturn in the stock market

some plums:

If you are losing sleep over market swings, then you should probably not own stocks.
You see, corrections aren’t all bad. In fact, if you don’t need the money any time soon, you should love your corrections.
“Corrections can be very healthy,” said Jeremy Siegel, professor of finance at the Wharton School
Market declines create opportunities.
Geniuses who pick stocks for a living even have difficulty pulling it off.
“We can use volatility to our advantage, as it provides opportunities to purchase quality growth companies at attractive prices,”
If you are retired or close to it, you should have already diversified into some cash and fixed income to avoid the market swings. (haha, should huff)
“Declines in stock prices are your friend, because you can buy more stocks,”
another silver lining to downturns. Corrections can weed out investors like hedge funds who are not in for the long term.

- allows to buy more securities that one could with cash only.
- is the difference between the market value of a stock and the loan amount.

100 shares x $10 x 50% margin rate = $500 required cash in account to buy $1000 worth of shares.

Always, ALWAYS KNOW the amount by which a stock falling in price will wipe out your position so that will lose all your money, plus interest and commissions.

The BEAUTY of a margin account vs a cash account is that when things go south, they get ugly really fast. In fact so ugly as to lead to personal or corporate bankruptcy, possibly suicide.

Everything in your account - ALL you assets - as well as your personal guarantee, are held as assurance by the broker. You WILL repay the debt no matter what happens in the trading account itself.

IF the account blows up you are on the hook for the money immediately (usually within 3 days max).
No payment plan.
No terms.

If you don't pay the broker can haul you to court to get judgments to seize your other assets. You may have to borrow new money (ie go into debt) to pay off the broker's judgement.

We’re going to go $200 billion at 25 percent on Chinese made goods. And we will come back with more if they retaliate. We have a lot more to come back with. We are cracking down on the unfair trade practices of China… We have rebuilt China. We have given them such wealth. And we are changing it. So we charged 25 percent on $50 billion worth of merchandise tariffs coming in. And then they said, 'We're going to do the same thing'. And I've said: 'That is okay. We have far more bullets'.” - Trump at a packed rally in Missouri for Republican Senate candidate Josh Hawley. Sept 21, 2018

JP Morgan's top quant warns next crisis to have flash crashes and social unrest not seen in 50 years

J.P. Morgan's top quant, Marko Kolanovic, predicts a "Great Liquidity Crisis" will hit financial markets, marked by flash crashes in stock prices and social unrest.

The trillion-dollar shift to passive investments, computerized trading strategies and electronic trading desks will exacerbate sudden, severe stock drops, Kolanovic said.

Central banks will be forced to make unprecedented moves, including direct purchases of equities, or there could even be negative income taxes.

Timing of when this next crisis will occur is uncertain but markets appear to be safe through the first half of 2019, he said.

Some small publishers have seen their income slashed over 50%.
“One of the Facebook policy changes that kind of went under the radar and it went into effect in February was the branded content policy. And it decreased my income from Facebook by 60 percent, overnight. No explanation.” said Holly Homer, a Texas entrepreneur who runs the Facebook pages for “Quirky Mama” and “Kids Activities.”

Last month, Facebook was once again in the news after a top executive allegedly told a group of digital publishers that Mark Zuckerberg "doesn't care" about news publishers, and is happy to let them die if they don't cooperate with the company.
"I’ll be holding your hands with your dying business like in a hospice," said Facebook global head of partnerships, Campbell Brown.

Mtl JP 15:33 GMT

If Tesla's PR department thought today's reported SEC subpoenas and 'formal' investigation transition by the regulator would be the worst of its problems, they got a very unpleasant surprise when Tesla whistleblower Martin Tripp started tweeting photos, internal emails, and Vehicle Identification Numbers of Model 3 VIN numbers that allegedly have damaged or punctured battery packs in them, and which he says are evidence of flawed manufacturing practices at Tesla's battery factory, and could put drivers' lives at risk.

One month ago, we reported that Martin Tripp - the former Tesla engineer who on June 20 was sued by Tesla for allegedly trying to "sabotage" the company - and who subsequently turned out to be a whistleblower who was fired in retaliation for his attempts to warn Tesla execs of severe quality control production problems, was alleging several egregious safety violations that, if true, would likely destroy what remains of Musk's tattered credibility, which the SEC is currently subpoenaing.
