Sunday Tables Posted

Date: Sunday, June 10, 2018 5:48 PM EDT

With difficulty, I have just posted the tables, the problem being that my bank which holds some of my positions is revising its internet system this weekend and I cannot easily get my data without several complicated visits to specific websites and careful calculations.

Having taken off to go to reunions at Radcliffe and the Bronx High School of Science over the past weeks, I realized I have to get the performance numbers out to keep my subscribers happy. If they have to look all those numbers up themselves they would be getting less value than expected from their subscriptions. 

So I did the job although it assassinated my Sunday, to quote Yves Montand. I like mentioning other countries and languages after the Trump performance in Canada.

You should never underestimate the lack of sophistication of US investors and their politicians and TV stars, but I expect that there will be another selloff on Monday which will not be reversed like the one on Friday. The initial reaction was negative when the President declared a trade war on the allies of the United States before and during the G-7 summit in Canada.

Alas, if Kim Jong-un looks at how other countries which gave in to US pressures like Iran or Libya were treated, I fear that the only remotely positive outcome I can anticipate from Trumpian diplomacy initiative is not going to happen.

Buy gold is the message for the subscriber base. It is less risky than bitcoins and volatility ETFs.
