    Although this story is meant to be 'inspirational' by TPTB for the delude of 'future retirees' who are going to get 'you know what' ......fact is this may well be their fate, as their dreams of a blessed retirement following decades of servitude - goes 'pooff'!! come next year or so .....Sorry!

    I say man....I'm surprised you ask this ......then again, maybe your question was centered around the word 'imminent' ...........Then again, how close is 'imminent'? Do you mean days? Or Months?.........Me 2cents......The crisis has been around since 2008.....they found ways to kick the can all the way till now. The question remains, How much of road is left to kick it down? Or worse, How much of the 'can' is intact?

    I see it as, the time we are in now is possibly the 'Beginning of The End' Not much TPTB could do to stop Greece. Nor does it look like they wanted to stop Greece and bring EU to the brink in the first place. Not much the Chinese 'Plunge Protection Team' can do for their markets anymore......Why? Out of 'can' or 'road'? OR Is it time to 'Let It All Go?'


    Not exactly yet....but all part of the build up

    Wait till mid September, when the FED will be 'forced' to raise rates. Then, ??? You know la

    But then again, other than for a few lucky or shrewd ones.....for most of the flock......Carole King says it best in her classic....

    The songs and the issues are related... perhaps you cannot get the drift.... chill dude...

    Her other top hit "I feel the earth move" was actually quoted in a SMS message to Jho Low from one of his aides when the USD700 million transfer to his bank account in Seychelles succeeded...

    Touchy, Touchy

    May I ask, What's 'irrelevent'? The video? Or the song? Or, perhaps the title 'ITS TOO LATE'?

    Glad you like this album too. Tapestry was a superb piece of work from Carole and that album remains dear to me till today, not just on account of her songs but it was also my late brother's favorite. We used to play it often

    Nope, Though Carole married 4 times, she never married James Taylor .....although there was some speculation around the time when James became popular after the song 'You Got A Friend' became his big hit......which Carole wrote.....she was to go on to claim that she never wrote it for James.

    Something interesting though......Neil Sedeka and Carole King dated during high school for which his famous song 'Oh Carol' is believed to be inspired.

    Thanks for noting that "songs and the issues are related" ......Who knows,....someday soon, the song "I feel the earth move" will be relevant.....right now 'I just feel it under my skin'

    And here's a concert version of 'You've Got a Friend' by Carole King & James Taylor - dedicated to all my Friends
    [btw, sad to see age catch up with James....all his long locks are gone ]

    Was at the KLAV show yesterday, the re-issued LP of CK Tapestry, retail for RM199 10% discount.
    Oh well..again how much you buy for RM10 nowadays..nothing much!
    Any used copy of Tapestry pressed in USA will be good to keep and play once a while. I have 1 gold disc CBS Mastersound edition, collector items now. Its the best if no record player.

    You asked.....And this guy answered

    >>> Read: "Is A Flash Crash Imminent?"<<<

    Kinda technical....so if you hate clicking to >Read More< but, need to know quickly, here's his conclusion.....

    " I would repeat that I am not making a call on the next week or next month but rather on the next three months. In this context, my stop loss levels will afford critical protection to my call if I am badly wrong in my expectations around the fundamentals and around policy responses in particular. I will revert if the facts change materially and either of my stop losses are triggered; otherwise, I will be patient deep into September."

    There you go .......meanwhile out in Beijing.....

    "What do you do when two policy rate cuts, $19 billion in committed support from a hastily contrived broker consortium, and a promise of central bank funding for the expansion of margin lending all fail to quell extreme volatility in a collapsing equity market?"

    The Sing dollar is now almost the same as Australian dollar, selling at rm 2.8.

    To think that Msian ringgit was equal to one Sing dollar just 50 years ago.

    That's how low our ringgit has dropped.

    Sporeans can buy three times more goods than Msians with the same amount of money.

    Timely lessons from China....


    "On a hot, humid Sunday afternoon in mid-June, around 600 eager stock investors packed the largest ballroom at the Grand Hyatt in Lujiazui, Shanghai’s equivalent of Wall Street.

    With Chinese stocks at a seven-year high, the investors had gathered to listen to a talk by one of China’s top fund managers, Wang Weidong, of Adding Investment. The crowd was so large, the air conditioning couldn’t keep up and hotel staffers brought in chairs and bottled water for the sweaty participants."

    Today the Shanghai index and smaller, more-volatile indexes in Shenzhen are off more than a quarter from highs reached in June.



    "Even after the peak, new investors opened millions of brokerage accounts so they could play the rally. Sophie Wang, a 32-year-old college art teacher in Nanjing, said in a recent interview that she opened her first stock trading account two weeks ago and bought some shares on “the advice of my hairdresser.”

    "Ms. Wang said her holdings are down 32%. “I don’t really follow news on stocks that closely. My hairdresser said it was still a bull market and I needed to get in,” she said.

    Well, in such times.....Kenny Rogers offers some sound advise [hope its relevant ]




    "You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for counting
    When the dealin's done"

    You see, when hawkers, shoe-shine boys and yes, hairdressers start giving you tips it means it is the time to bail out.

    That's what Joseph Kennedy (father of the late President John F Kennedy) did during his time. He escaped the stockmarket bloodbath and later become very rich.

    Generally, people think they can make money and should make money just like others (who made more money than them). They don't look at the underlying risks and consequences..

    Not all of them are less-educated folks.. Many well-educated folks do the same as they think they are luckier (always) than others..

    They are also people who talk about risks and crisis non-stop, but never do anything and perhaps can't afford to do anything to capitalize the oppotunities offered by the risks and crisis ….
