A Delirious And Spaced Out Trump

Courtesy of PhiloStockWorld Monday Market Madness – Trade Wars Escalate Now what has President Trump done? You know, you shouldn't have to wake up in the morning and have that be your number one concern.

Bitcoin Quick Review

A bit of bragging time this morning - just a little - on my pushback post on Bitcoin last December.

US Markets - Crisis, What Crisis?

I love the market's attention span – or lack thereof… No matter what happens, just a day later it's all forgotten and the dip buyers come in to buy things back to their highs.  We had this pattern back in 2006/7 and it was even a joke meme.  It's the kind of behavior that works – until it tragically does not.    This morning, we've pretty much r...
