Keep Calm

I have an early appointment today so please forgive the brevity of this post. In essence your mission for the day is to parse your charting universe and then meditate on the fact that nobody in their right mind (which doesn’t include us of course) would have predicted a stronger Dollar and raging equities after a Trump victory.

Barring a meteoroid punching a hole through our moon or the St. Andreas Fault leveling the West Coast it seems that the collective sideways churn will most likely extend all the way into the November 8th presidential election. No matter where you stand politically I’m pretty sure you hate this tape even more than either Hillary or Trump. But let’s remember that bitching and complaining is the domain of losers. Instead let’s think about how we can take advantage of the situation.

In case you are wondering – no, I didn’t acquire a glue sniffing habit over the weekend. Let me explain the four scenarios above and it’ll all make [...]
