    Thorn got a reaction from Harley in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    That fits with “You Will Never Receive Anything Back From The State When You Get Old”... isn’t the Yellow Vest movement about XS tax - like the cost and tax for buying and having your own yellow vest- and people starting to get fed up

    I'm going to hold on to the wee bastard and see what happens over the next couple of years I reckon. But it's like watching a drunk lunatic on vodka and Red Bull.
    There it goes up again just now. Headed up over 2?
    Buckle up.

    Loads of pm miners look ready to turn upwards now and follow Eg Wesdome.
    If Gold next punches up through 1300 now I reckon it’s game on for most of them for a good run up.

    As for DB from what I’ve seen I’ve 100% faith his readings are unreal- but it’s always DYOR for us all etc. I reckon he’s not here to lecture just to muse.
    And its all a big balancing act. 
    DYOR for me means keeping a roof over my family’s head because nobody else will. And landlords frequently throw you out when they feel like it because they are allowed to. Here in NIreland we get 4 bastard weeks notice to get out.

    Aye - the INDU, SPX, VUSA, VUKE, VFEM and when you look at the DOW components, Verizon, Boeing... all look to be starting to roll over the top of their hills...
    I'm out of all of them and expecting a massive drop now. Pretty much just IBTL, GDX look attractive at the moment, as well as some of the pm miners that might just get greener and greener.
    Just watched The Big Short again, this time was the first time though with my better half. She suddenly isn't looking at me with that sort of look she had before. 
    I'm off to adjust the chinstraps on my tinfoil helmet. 
    And build a tinfoil hut for the whole family now under the table.

    That’s great- been embarrassed to ask for ages because I understand the ex-dividend date alright. But it’s the bit before that I can’t figure out. Whats the title of the Start date before then, the date you have to hold the shares from in order to qualify for the dividend?

    I think if Corbin or even a Tory could ever get longer secured tenancies through they would save a generation from at least some of the constant mental torture of waiting for eviction by their all- powerful landlords.
    This article seems to indicate that Landlords Would Hate That. That could make some of them want or need to sell and get out before the rush. 
    Currently awaiting latest landlord to call and give us the usual 4 weeks notice to get out here in NIreland ...so bring on longer secured tenancies please.

    We are. At least, I am. Holding goldies, Reflation stocks, some IBTL and some cash...
    ...not trusting ETFs and can’t understand how the feck Netflix is still in business. But here we are...
    ...so still no sign of a flight to quality...nothing seems to make sense out there at the moment. 
    Viceroy many thanks for the update. Seems MA is guiding towards DOW stocks as the quality thing to hold in the coming drop in confidence his model predicts shortly.
    Do you think that’s his idea of the Trade of the Century? the Dow 30 is The Flight To Quality?

    Battered but solid divi players and pms, check, Harley and leonardratso. Lovely and going nice and green on there today. 
    Today I have attached the BS detector to my tinfoil hat more firmly after reading the Guardian RICS story saying house prices were falling just because of Brexit...and realised it wasn’t for the VUKE and CIND and VUSA I wouldn’t be down 3%. 
    So ditching them finally out of my SIPP and happily watching the miners and defensives with some in reserve to BTFD.
    feels a bit like a war film and we’re being told to “wait for it... wait for it...”
    ...good man Sergeant DB.
