Covit-19 Pandemic Prediction
When will Coronavirus Pandemic End?
Firstly, suggest you take a look at Basic protective measures against the new coronavirus WHO (World Health Organization) issues for your safety and the updated statistics worldwide.
Globally, the coronavirus shock could be very severe even compared to the Great Financial Crisis in 2007–08.
China shows that we can stop coronavirus through aggressive intervention, namely containment, but at a significant economic cost.
So, when will Coronavirus pandemic end and when will people go back to normal life? It fully depends on each country’s unique situation especially on Intervention level & its timing. The New York Times created an interesting interactive tool. Let me show a few charts which will give you a good insight on the predicted timing (the articles says “The figures are for America, but the lessons are broadly applicable to any country").
This is the worst scenario and will not end until at least mid to end 4Q this year.
This may possibly end early 4Q this year.
This is the best scenario which may end late 3Q this year. In fact China, the source of Covit-19 have done very aggressive lock-down to contain the virus since mid Jan ’20 and after 2 months, although nationwide there are still strict controls, some people are allowed to go back to work and seems social distancing are gradually removing.
4 – 10 Months?
Almost no countries will do extremely aggressive intervention China did in Wuhan such as “officials going door to door for health checks & forcing anyone ill into isolation", which can only be made by the desponic communist party.
But actually, the early outbreak countries such as Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore & South Korea look they already started having the virus under control – Japan’s social distancing is shrinking as coronavirus fears ease, probably too soon though;
Anyhow, taking all these into accounts, most of the countries need to wait at least for 4 – 10 months to gradually get back to the normal life.
New Working Pattern After the end of Covit-19 Pandemic
As many of you have already been aware, coronavirus could permanently shift people’ working patterns. Companies forced to embrace remote working by the pandemic.
Work From Home (WFH) requires both physical & mental preparation as below;
Physically such as PC, Chat app & Internet connection, most of the workers are already equipped, and some of the companies seem to facilitate the employees to work from home by providing an allowance for broadband and other facilities.
Apart from the security issues, the biggest challenge looks lying in mental factors. Keeping the productivity & engagement levels while avoiding isolation need people’ mindset changes. It depends on the nature of the business & individuals, once people get used to it, many people may start liking it. In fact, many employees are already starting to question why they had to go in to the office in the first place. Because, overall, working from home doesn’t change your day-to-day work, it just means you’ll be doing it from a different environment. Actually, people are getting the chance to experience days without long commutes, or the harsh inflexibility of not being able to stay close to home when a family member is sick etc. This might be a chance for a great reset in terms of how we work.
As a result, many employees may not want to return to the office once the closures are lifted. The sudden increase in working from home is presenting problems as well as opportunities.
So, smart people will start making additional task to create extra income by making the best use of their better work time flexibility.
Consequently, the WFH ideas under Covit-19 you will find in this report may become your permanent extra income opportunities even after the pandemic ends.
Our WFH (Work From Home) Opportunities
We have 2 pillars to build Extra Income, which are Advantage Gambling & Passive Trading. Please see more detail reasons why we believe these are the best methods in Three Clever Ways to Diversify Your Income for a Rainy Day.
Let me share the snapshot of each pillar and how they could be workable measures in coronavirus WFH (work from home) circumstances. The specific programs & process will be found in the next “Advantage Gambling Action Plans" & “Passive Trading Action Plans" respectively.
Advantage Play – Direction under Covit-19
Advantage Play or Advantage gambling refers to legal methods, in contrast to cheating in casinos or sports bookmakers, used to gain an advantage while gambling. So, although it uses the word gambling, we actually never gamble which we define “Count On Chance". Our aim of playing Sports Betting & Casino Games is to create solid Extra Money based on 6 Advantage Plays by making the best use of mathematical edge to beat the bookies, casino & bingo.
When it comes to Sports Betting, we use Matched Betting / Sports Arbitrage / Value Bets On Proven Software, Tipsters (handicappers) & Systems to lock-in profit or consistently earn extra income for long-term.
With that said, one of our policies is “Betting On Luck Is For Losers, Stop Gamble Betting But Bet on Only +EV (Expected Value) To Win Reliably“. It is effectively our way to promote Responsible Gambling. And we strongly support GamCare being explained in about us.
Covit-19 Influence – Sports Betting
Major sports events have been cancelled or postponed by the Covit-19 fear, what opportunities can we use?
Matched Betting & Sports Arbitrage: Better to forget given the Not Enough active sports to make decent profits from these methods.
Value Betting: The method counting on Law of Large Number (LLN) may not work under the current circumstances, but the system that keep exploring available sports events & ESports can be still used.
Covit-19 Influence – Casino
Luckily, casino is not affected by Covit-19 at all and can be done via WFH flawlessly. In fact, we have observed increasing juicy offers (bonuses) since all betting sites (, which provide both sportsbook & casino) try to make up the loss caused by the decrease of sport betting revenue.
Passive Trading – Direction under Covit-19
Stock market suffered gravely by coronavirus, in fact it always happens when the bubble bursts. However, Forex (spot forex market) is a Zero Sum Game, means the total market size doesn’t change. However, as explained in the harsh reality of Forex Trading, very skilled trader (means who committed strong efforts to go through proper training) & institutional trader possessing “information advantage" beat the average & inexperienced retail traders. So, we can describe this situation as “Expert Traders are Casino (House) whereas Retail Traders are Gamblers". Given the House Edge, the Gamblers Can’t Beat the House.
With that said, our principle is Using Expert’s Expertise to Beat the Market consistently. In order to do that we use 3 passive trading methods of Social/Copy Trading, PAMM Account & Trading Robot (EA).
BTW, although we usually focus on Forex trading, you may not overlook the equity market opportunity based on the basic principle said by Warren Buffet as below;Anyhow, regarding our passive trading direction, given the lack of good performing PAMM account at this moment in time and the fact that it’s very difficult for the programmer to adjust or build a proper robot algorithm to deal with unprecedented uncertainties caused by Covit-19, suggest focus on social/copy trading.
Covit-19 Influence – Social & Copy Trading
Despite the current turmoil with extremely high volatility, there are several smart traders you can copy and enjoy the same profits they make. On top of it, participating social trading will give you additional benefits as eToro CEO Yoni Assia described;
If you’re missing some social interaction, hop onto the eToro social feed and share your thoughts and insights with the community. During these times, it is important to over-communicate and to leverage the technology we have to maintain a sense of togetherness. It is also a great way to read about what is happening in other countries, and what our investors are thinking about the markets as the situation develops.
Covit-19 Influence – Manual Trading
We know that many of our members still prefer “Own Trading", but as you’re aware that given the current high VIX – Volatility Index (VIX bounces between a range of approximately 18-35 in the majority of the time, and over 50 indicates S&P 500 index will be in the range of +/- 50% over the year, 68% of the time), it’s extremely risky, therefore you should be very cautious.

Firstly, currency and equity trading rely heavily on electronic execution, which needs state-of-the art communications. Working from home may still be hard since access to office trading platforms via VPN requires ultra-reliable, high-speed internet connections and cyber-security resilience. Besides, needless to say, traders should operate under strict oversight, means there are regulatory oversight challenges associated with working from remote locations on top of the issue of controls and compliance.
All in all, there must be a lot of institutional traders who are not allowed to WFH but have to stay home due to Covit-19.
Then, it’s a good opportunity to execute your own tradings while earning commissions by being copied by other investors. The above 2 social trading platforms enable you to do so. See the below;
