Adam Fergusson, When Money Dies

Tech continued to be a bit of a drag on the equity market.

The broader, non-weighted indices gaining on what the pundits claim is the anticipation of a broad-based economic recovery.

It seems to this gimlet eye that it might also be a broad inflationary trend buoyed by historic money printing.

Gold and silver continued to rebound a bit after the trouncing they took from the Banks.

There was a to-do about the newly empowered Democrats lambasting the moneyed interests and their personal ATM and wealth transfer machine called Wall Street. 

They always talk a good game, but then hide behind the GOP Senate filibuster, and do little or nothing.

And the band played on.

Have a pleasant evening.
