Answering Readers’ Questions…

Hi Everyone:

If I don’t get to post for the next couple of days that’s because I’m in a non-wireless zone, so hopefully I will be able to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving, but if not:
Happy Thanksgiving!
OK, now more questions. This first one is very important because remember all the financial posts I had done and how if Barack Obama were to win our situation would actually get better, not immediately, but it still would be less dire even in the short term.
Well, I’ve been thinking a lot about that. I can feel the panic in the air as I’m sure all of you can, but I also have a feeling with this aggressive restructuring of the market we are currently undertaking, the beast will be tamed to a large degree. I’m not saying there won’t be people losing their jobs, and several shaky years when people will feel unsure about their employment, their investments and what’s going on in the world financially, but I am feeling (and seeing) that this Pluto aspect (once Obama is officially in office) will actually be more about restructuring then about total devastation.
It’s as if we were in a big car barreling down a freeway at 150 MPH, headed toward a sink hole when the passenger yanked on the car steering wheel and the car lurched away from our certain death, totaling the car, but everyone lives, and has varying degrees of injury. 
So while that sounds kind of insane and scary, and it is. Our future is not nearly as bad as it would have been. We have in a way, saved ourselves from certain disaster. We will still have to pay for the sins of corporate greed, but I believe their days (at least for several generations to come) of being robber-barons is over. And the world as a whole (if we stay on this path) will find its way out of crisis.
So here’s the first question from Anonymous:
From Anonymous:
The big concerns expressed by some economists, is the perilous time before the inauguration which obviously coincides with your prediction. Evidently, in the 1930’s, the delay between the Hoover administration and FDR’s was disastrous. It appears that Obama’s administration has been getting the message and he is inserting himself into the Bush administrations’ management of the economy. Do you see a possibility of the tsunami being avoided if this trend continues? (Hope springs eternal)
Hello Anonymous,
I won’t go as far as saying the tsunami will be entirely avoided because there’s only so much Obama can do until he becomes president, but I do feel his inserting himself into the situation is absolutely a blessing to us, and will soften the blow a great deal. I feel this for a number of reasons:
1) He is reminding us (while we are panicked) that there is a competent leader who will carefully and cooly appoint the right people, and delve right into this on day one to fix the problem. This is kind of like cuddling your baby when he has an ouchy. This in itself I feel is helping to some degree to reassure us from total panic.
2) He is making good well measured decisions that are inclusive of all sides of the argument, further reassuring us that he is willing to listen to whatever idea is best no matter what side of the aisle or whether it be left, right or center. I think this is very important right now that the best idea win, politics aside.
3) We are in uncharted territory here with the economic crisis, and conventional wisdom isn’t going to work. Even the financial experts, deep in the pit of their hearts know this, and we can all smell their fear. This is exacerbating the market because they keep lying to the public when they are aware that they really can’t give advice right now, there is too much novelty, too much emotion and things are far too volatile to predict. But Obama’s measured, cool demeanor and show of strength really helps to calm this sector down. People respond to strong leadership which he is showing. 
I do feel that we’ll have a strange couple of years, and by the time its over we won’t recognize the way the market works anymore. It will be very different. It’s the end of capitalism as we once knew it.
It will no longer be a free for all anything goes as long as it can make money sort of ideology.
As I’ve said before in many posts, there will be new international banking, and trading laws that we will have to abide by, and the world will come together to make sure this never happens again. This means a lot of dirty underbelly will be exposed and rooted out, and a new way of doing business will be ushered in.
So it’s really hard for me to know how many companies will collapse under the weight of these new laws, and how many will be strengthened by it, but my gut feeling is it will be corruption darwinism, with the worst offenders dying off. That being said it will take awhile to discover all the nooks and crannies of these company’s books, and the market will be pretty nutty for awhile.
From Amber:
Denise, I found the information on t mobile and when they filed the merger with the security and exchange commission to become t mobile. I hope this is sufficient info. 
Here’s the chart:

Hi Amber,

I don’t see anything catastrophic here. It looks like they will be fine through this, they may actually expand into other communication services, the worst of it is they may have to lower their prices, or cut rates and try to go into encouraging usage in a more traditional home phone kind of way.


Hi Denise,

Can you give me some advise on a couple of mutual funds? I had originally thought that I would just hold them through this – but if it is going to get much worse, perhaps I should sell. I just don’t know how low they will go, or how long it will take for them to recover.

Hi Jean,

Can you give me the stock names and also if you have their first trading or incorporation date in case I don’t have it in my database. If you can’t find it don’t worry I’ll try to find it, but if you can find info on it, then I will be able to answer you much more quickly.


Hi Denise,

I am interested in the stocks for Boeing (BA) and Airbus (EADSY) – how this ecomonic crisis will effect them and should we hold out for the long-term?

Hi Cathy,

Here are 2 charts I found for Boeing:

picture-251There will be opportunity for them to be more profitable, but they have to make some major changes. It looks to me that this stock will be very volatile for the next couple of years, and go through some very major shifts, even perhaps changing what they are known for making and potentially getting more into experimental or innovation orientated/research driven work. That’s there best chance at staying valuable. Otherwise as Pluto makes opposition after opposition to Mars, Mercury (the chart ruler), Pluto and then the Sun, this company could go under, but that won’t be for awhile, not until about 2020. So you have some time here to decide when the best time to sell is.

I couldn’t find anything for Airbus. Do you have their incorporation date or the start date of when they began trading? If so please post it in a comment and I’ll run a chart for you.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you.

And of course have a great Thanksgiving!

Global Economy; The Start Of The Collapse…

I’m sorry to say that I saw this coming, like dominoes we will see all markets starting to collapse. I’ve had people ask me if it was safe to invest in other foreign markets, my answer to them has been no. I wish I would have posted this instead of talking just talking about it to several people. My hope is that none of you pulled your money out of the stock market, and put it into another market. I did warn about the domino effect in an earlier post. But I wish I would have addressed this directly in a separate post since so many people seemed confused about this issue.

A friend told me that his financial adviser said a few conventional things (after he told his advisor my predictions). 1) Not much happens historically in the market place in December and 2) Over time the market will rectify itself. But we will not see anything conventional over the next couple of years, this is the problem with listening solely to financial adviser types. You must trust your own intuition, but not your fear. 

In my friend’s case, he has enough diversity and time on his side that even if 75% of all the stocks he owned went belly up he’d be OK. He wouldn’t go broke. He wouldn’t really gain anything though. We are all in a quandary as to where to put our money. I’ve been asked that question a lot. Should you hide cash in your house? Will the FDIC fail? Is there anything really safe?

The sad answer to this is, not really, nothing is safe right now. The safest thing is an FDIC account, however if your bank goes under it may take awhile for you to get your money. But keeping large amounts of cash in your house is not a good idea for obvious reasons. Another friend asked if real estate investing was a good way to go. Well, not right now because it will be a liability. If people can’t afford to pay rent then you still have to pay the mortgage and the taxes and the upkeep. 

So for now. I’d say, try not to freak out. Just keep your money in a safe conservative bank. Maybe some extra cash on hand, nothing crazy though, some extra food, water and necessities and save your money. Things will get better once Obama takes office. Things won’t turn around overnight, but plans will be put in place, action will be taken to save the middle class. This I see so clearly. And this will start the turn around. And with that there will be more hope, more confidence and things will start to move (slowly) toward the America we’ve known so far. But hold onto your hats for awhile things are going to get really scary before they get better. And don’t invest in anything right now! If you’re still in the market, it maybe too late to get out without losing, so use your best intuitive judgement there. 

Just remember, things will get better, we’ll get through this. Make sure to be active in politics. Those of us who couldn’t understand how politics directly effected us will see exactly how it does. It’s important for us as citizens to stay informed and participate.

Best wishes and good luck. 

PS. Remember don’t let fear get the better of you. You will be seeing some very scary things, and as I said in an earlier post late December something very mind boggling is going to happen in regards to the market. But, we will be OK. I feel the country turning toward the light. It will ultimately be OK. We’ll have some trouble for awhile, but hold tight and save, save, SAVE!

Blessings to you.

Global Economy; The Start Of The Collapse…

Pluto and the Stock Market…

Pluto ruler of death and rebirth, karma and transformation — uh, oh, here it comes. It will be crossing the first house of the Dow Jones chart late December as I wrote in an earlier post. I’m not going to go cover everything I put in that post, but as the economy continues to go south, we are going to see some other bad things not previously mentioned in earlier posts. I was hopeful the bail out agreement would conclude positively with oversight and helping home owners, etc. But as we have seen that didn’t happen, as predicted by the tarot the night before the vote. And of course we saw the repercussions on Wall Street today.

OK, here goes:

We are going to see the collapse of a lot of businesses. I’m afraid there will be infrastructure problems, such as getting goods from one place to the next. Stock up on what your need, we’re in for a big storm. This won’t happen overnight, you will have time and I’m hopeful that congress can still get it together to some degree to stop the bleeding. But if McCain wins we will see a global DEPRESSION unlike anything we’ve ever experienced. It’s imperative that you don’t vote for McCain, really I say this for no other reason other than I know this.

I’m not saying Obama is going to make daisies pop up all over the place and butterflies are going to fly out of rainbows, no. It’s going to be bad for a while either way, but it will be the difference between an economic Nagasaki (McCain) and an economic knife fight (Obama).

Seriously, it will take all of Obama’s 4 years to turn this tragic boat around, but if he stays in office for another 4 after that, I believe we will see ourselves put safely back on track. 

I started this blog because I saw all this coming. I had a horrible feeling this summer, but couldn’t figure out exactly what my intuition was trying to warn me about. As soon as I got clarity I began blogging. 

I’m scared. I’m sure a lot of you out there are as well. It’s imperative that you tell people how dangerous a situation we are in, and that you educate your friends, and family members on the positions of the candidates. I believe this is the most important election in the history of our country. We are at a cross roads. Pluto is a karmic planet. It can be a great turning point or the worst tragedy we’ve ever seen. Help make our country go in the right direction. Make sure to encourage people to get informed (in a real way not in a Fox news/propaganda/Lenny Riefenstahl way) before they vote. 

Now that Pluto is going to cross the Dow Jone’s first house what could have been a positive transformation in the way we did business (if we hadn’t had 8 years of George W.) will now be the karmic equivalent of a shot gun to our head. It’s not going to be good.

We can turn this around. It will take time. But those of us who are intuitive, compassionate and logical must reason with the blind sided. It’s time to put politeness aside for the good of our country, and let those around you know how important this is, for the sake of the global economy and our world as a whole. It’s not just that we are faced with the loss of jobs, money, housing and credit, but this really could cause massive starvation (like Germany in the 1920s when people had to use a wheel barrel full of money to buy a loaf of bread).

There are so many crucial issues, not just this one. Global warming which is doing us in more and more each day — it still seems abstract, and its effects can still be blown off by the majority. But it is every bit as deadly as this economic crisis. So it really is imperative that we all get involved and try to save the world not just for us, but for the generations to come.

Best wishes, blessed be and good luck.

Pluto and the Stock Market…

The Big One

So from what I can tell, what starts in December, the plummet is finished around the end of January. Pluto will be officially conjuncting the DOW’s first house and will be lit by a bunch of other things. From what I can see this crash will be different than the 1929 crash in that it won’t just happen in a day but rather will be a domino type of effect happening over the course of a couple of months. This will continue for awhile. There will probably be bail outs and efforts to save the market with some positive Aquarian aspects going on (I won’t bore you with the details) but ultimately there will be such a fundamental transformation in the way the market works that it will be highly unstable for a long time to come. The period I’m pointing to will be the worst of the hits but it will remain highly volatile for the next couple of decades! I would say that it will really never be the same because once Pluto passes through the first it will go into the second house of money also causing problems. Whatever this storm is it will not only reek havoc in the short term it will change the face of the DOW. 

Being that nothing like this has happened in the history of the DOW I can’t point to history and tell you exactly how it will play out other than to say the balance of power will shift, there will be tremendous instability and losses. Perhaps it will be akin to what has happened in the US with the rich getting richer and the middle class slipping into the category of the poor — we maybe on the brink of a feudal style form of Capitalism or perhaps if the Democrats win they can turn that energy around and use the transformation to shift the power back toward the middle class. There has never been a more important time to vote your interest. If you are middle class or struggling have no sympathy for the wealthy, they are in the process of shoring up the boat so you can’t get in.
