Stock Market Humour

this is an audio post - click to play

A man stated to me that our gift is our curse and our curse is our gift.
At first I had to really think on this to understand it fully. It has such profound truth. Which I will going to in a future issue.

It made me think about how it relates to our languages as well. That which messes us up in our understanding of one another, also can give us a laugh or a smile.

Thankfully, I have friends who continue to send me the puns, metaphors and humour that shows how words can have several meanings.

These are based on the stock market.

  • Helium was up, feathers were down.
  • Paper was stationary.
  • Fluorescent tubing was dimmed in light trading.
  • Knives were up sharply.
  • Cows steered into a bull market.
  • Pencils lost a few points.
  • Hiking equipment was trailing.
  • Elevators rose, while escalators continued their slow decline.
  • Weights were up in heavy trading.
  • Light switches were off.
  • Mining equipment hit rock bottom.
  • Diapers remain unchanged.
  • Shipping lines stayed at an even keel.
  • The market for raisins dried up.
  • Soda Pop fizzled.
  • Caterpillar stock inched up a bit.
  • Sun peaked at midday.
  • Balloon prices were inflated.
  • Scott Tissue touched a new bottom.

Remember to stay open to the possibility that what we thought we heard, isn’t necessarily what the other person meant. So much more can be accomplished as well as improved relationships and business goals success.

If you like risk in life and want to make fast money then Share Trading is the best option for you. However if you are someone who wanna play safe and is happy with fix returns then simply go for Mutual Funds. Still in both its good to have experts views and tips. So just have them if and only if you want to earn from these areas.
