  1. I thought about buying some Berkshire. Problem is, it performed quite bad form a european based investor perspective during 2000 to 2009 when USD was weak. Another thing: It doesnt beat the S&P since 20 or so years it seems. The S&P Total Return actually beats Berkshire since that time? Berkshire pays no dividend, so I simply don‘t know why I should buy Berskshire and not just the S&P. Besides that I like Buffet. He doesn‘t seem to be an asshole and is calm and so, not very loud. I like that. Buffet quotes I like: "You can't produce a baby in one month by getting nin
  2. That is your best market related post ever. A classic, a keeper. Should be printed at a prominent place on the website.
  3. We can not say that violence when it comes to politics is somerhing new n the US after WW2. Both JFK and RFK were murdered most likely from some kind of right wing sources. Who exactly we will maybe never know. Take Bobby Kennedy for example. There was a good chance that he would have beaten Nixon, once he overtook Humphries what he quite likely would have achieved. Then came that Palestinian guy.,, ah yes... just like Ali Agca killed almost the Pope... alone... just so... ah yes 🙄 When it comes to political violence from law enforcement we have thst example from Kent University
  4. Yes. Absolutely and totally. They will not only prevent stocks from going down, they will actually BOMB it higher. S&P 4000 and NDX 15000 before Nov 3.
  5. Yes. The FED as an institution is under threat. Its further existence. It is as simple as that. During 2000 to 2003 the FED was not under threat, not at a single moment.
  6. They ARE smart. Definitely. Same like with the guys from McKinsey: Assholes at heart, but smart. They are good, very good in what they are doing. Same counts for Goldman prop traders: Assholes at heart, but good, VERY good.
  7. Yes. Absolutely correct. He is part of the game, part of the club so to say. There is a reason why there is never a guy like the one from the Union Head of the FED. That guy with the fat glasses is more like a FED head (notice him saying to the Union guy „you are not a Professional“ 🙄)
  8. He would be immediately made responsible for the „crash“ by Trump and likely killed by Albanian snipers or something like that. Or maybe poisened. My guess would be that he is not ready to die. So he won‘t ignite a crash.
  9. Sorry typo: Clochard (without h). That‘s French for something like a tramp/bum.
  10. Btw, have I ever told you that I admire Dr Ruth Westheimer? Hard core German accent 😂 and not only that, she speaks Frankfurt dialect, even when she speaks English 😂 In my view she is an absolutely outstanding personality. A role model. The Germans/Nazis killed all her relatives, her mother, her father... She then went to nowadays Israel to fight for the Hagana and so on, look here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Westheimer There is also this outstanding documentary about her: „Ask Dr Ruth“. Trailer here:
  11. Who says that the March low was not already the 1932 +89 (88) years Fibo projection low? This was a very serious downmove we had. In the US it was somewhat contained, espacially in NDX. When you look globaly, many indeces went down 50% and more. That is NOT nothing. In past decades it would have taken 12-36 months or so to make a 50% downmove. Just the fact that it now took only a few weeks doesn‘t mean nothing happened. Pricewise A LOT happened. Bears are often too greedy. They are as greedy as bulls. If you gave Noland 1 million in 1995 you would be a chlochard right now. Mayb
  12. Hmm yes. There could be a hard core right wing fraction like that one which wanted to nuke the Soviet Union back in the Cuba crisis. Back then we had Kennedy who prevented this. Now we have Trump... ou la la...
  13. Yes very interesting. I am absolutely sure that the inner circle of the Forces have a major problem with Trump. NATO was founded by the US. It is an US-lead project so to say. Generations of high honored Army personell was raised and educated in the spirit of NATO. The Army has very good relations with Germany for example. Trump destroys this all. Everything. The Forces will NOT go with Trump into the abyss. Never ever.
  14. NATO warns Russia not to interfere in Belarus affairs That‘s big. It is like if Russia would say to the US: „Canada is a souvereign state. Don‘t interfere.“. Belarus is like a backyard for Russia. What NATO says is:“If needed, I invade your backyard“. Why should the Russians NOT think:“And the next step is invading my house or what?“ Will be interesting to see how this market handles major geopolitical risk.
  15. Yep. How is the old saying? „The one‘s asset is the other‘s liability“ 😉
  16. It trippled since the March low. Crazy. is it correct that this is the fastest advance of Lumber ever? Even faster and bigger in magnitude than before/during the housing bubble? Can someone confirm?
  17. Germany a few days ago did put Croatia on the „risk country“ list. So that basically makes it impossible for you to come to Germany now or maybe possible but only with major hassle I guess. It seemed Croatia had Corona somewhat under control. But then they opened the country because big dependancy on tourism and imported the crap big time. Sad. Awesome that you made it to that magazine. Very cool! 😎
  18. What‘s going on with Tesla stock is simply beyond insanity. Now they are even talking about „flying cars“ 🙄🙄🙄
