An Ideological Path To A Liquidity Crisis In U.S. Markets

Justice Deserved? Justice Served? Market Reaction To Kavanaugh?

The thing that troubles me most is that Democrats had already prounced him "guilty" at the outset without allowing him his constitutional right of "innocent until proven guilty" and due process...that is not a democracy by any means. People are entitled to their opinions, but in legal matters, facts and law matter. As far as Ms. Ford is concerned, none of the people who she said were there said they were not, so I have to conclude by those (only) actual facts that it didn't happen. And, you're right both lives will be ruined...needlessly and recklessly, I'd add.

You're welcome, Susan. Interesting...TalkMarkets must have enlarged them after I replied to you, as I don't have access to edit my posts here.

Thanks, Susan. You'll have to go to my website and click on the charts there to see larger sizes. It's too bad that TalkMarkets doesn't have that same enlargement feature, as I've older eyes, too. :-)

Trump Drives HOG Out Of U.S.
7 months ago


The U.S. already has 12,000 tariffs in place on a variety of goods from numerous countries, so Trump's tariffs will be piled on top of those. American consumers will pay the price of a trade war, which will end up costing the U.S. far more than any minor benefits to its producers and manufacturers, inasmuch as these tariffs are paid to the government as taxes, not to U.S. companies. So any tax relief offered to Americans by the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will be offset by trade war taxes, including job losses.

And, why would he want to restrict the sale of U.S. products to world markets? It makes no sense!

U.S. Major Indices Fail To Hold Onto Gains In 2018 Q1
10 months ago

Could be that the perception of its ties to customer data is weighing more negatively, at the moment, than on its other business pursuits...we'll see if that escalates or abates...either way, I think volatility will remain for awhile.

SPX 3000?
1 year ago

P.S. to my article above...

Alternatively, we may see a hit of 3000 (or beyond to its next major external Fibonacci level of 3047) at the +5 channel deviation level sometime in February, potentially taking the Dow 30 along with it to around 26,700 (as I described recently in my post of January 11). Subsequently, these indices may move sideways for awhile to allow some of this parabolic surge (that began after the November 2016 Presidential election) to dissipate.

Tech Sector Holds The Key
1 year ago's unclear to me at this point. Perhaps, barring any major geo-political (including domestic) upsets or oversees nuclear "mistakes" in the near future, we'll eventually see markets resume an uptrend after drifting in this range, or maybe a bit lower until the fall. Although, there's still the possibility that markets spike higher one last time before a (rumoured) June rate hike.
