I feel the FTSE is teetering on the brink of a BIG drop. Could it be black Friday tomorrow.

The magic money must have ran out by now and they wont get another fix unless 'collapse is imminent'.

I have probably jinxed it now tho. :lol:

Is this your first call?
"For who has served me more faithfully than you with your coward's hope?" said he, "And where are the others that might have stood side by your side in the common good?"

"Dead," I whispered; and amiably "Murdered," the Hangman corrected me; "First the alien, then the Jew... I did no more than you let me do."

Beneath the beam that blocked the sky, none had stood so alone as I - and the Hangman strapped me, and no voice there cried "Stay" for me in the empty square.

The Welsh blood service want me to donate blood on Friday 13th, but I think I will give it a miss till next week.
The success or failure of your deeds does not add up to the sum of your life. Your spirit cannot be weighed. Judge yourself by the intention of your actions and by the strength you faced the challenges that have stood in your way.

The people closest to you have been trying to tell you that you have made a difference. That you did change things for the better. The Universe is vast and we are so small. There is really only one thing that we can ever truly control - whether we are good or evil.


The political triumph of the American Right has been to advance relentlessly the economic interests of the country's richest people, while emphasising a swath of moral, social and foreign policy issues that motivate and certainly distract middle-class and poor voters.

Truly incredible.. you timed the rally nearly to the second :D

So, housing affordability is better than it has ever been, but no-one can take advantage of this because they can't afford the houses. I see.

Italian borrowing costs increasing, same with the Spanish. Cost of petrol getting out of control in the UK.

House price asking prices back at crazy bubble levels 0% interest rates. Job losses spiralling out of control

reality is just around the corner.

It could be part of his cunning plan.

The best way of him getting a Black Friday is from a higher close Thursday.

Democorruptcy
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.

Governbankment
A "Governbankment" is a Government that has no line between itself and banks. It diverts public money (our taxes) to private companies (banks). George Osborne's Help to Buy Bail Banks, will see our taxes go to bankers to cover their losses on mortgages that default. The UK's Governbankment will even pay bankers "reasonable repossession fees" on Help to Bail Bank mortgages that default.

The Funding for Lending Scheme (FLS) is stealing from savers to make them pay for crimes by bankers. Via lower interest on savings, all the bank fines for PPI, LIBOR, interest rates swaps, etc. are being paid by savers so that bankers can keep pocketing bonuses. 

"We need to make a really big change: from an economy built on debt to an economy built on savings" - David Camoron Jan 2009
"Printing money is the last resort of desperate governments when all other policies have failed" - George Osborne Jan 2009
- So what do Camoron & Osborne do? Print money and leave interest rates at 0.5% when inflation is over 5%

If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

I suspect Google's after-hours results have just destroyed the Black Friday.

I think it is to be welcomed that the market now has sufficient reserves of confidence to go in and sort out the remaining piigs.

Spain and Italy will come quietly, there might be some domestic ructions, but the Greeks are more volatile and the Germans soon pacified them.

Naively optimistic?

Nothing will happen until the Giant Squid has it massively profitable Facebook IPO - after that, all bets off IMPO.

It's a good call IMO. I've been nervous about it all week.
