I keep looping back to the word “annoying” to describe the market, and that still seems to fit. The goddamned thing just won’t go into a freefall. To be clear, I had a good week, but good God almighty, it’s way too much work. Market Gods, throw me a bone here! Give me a morning where the ES is down 50! Do it for the Timster.

Anyway, one big theme all year long has been the US dollar’s steady progression from (1) mega-powerful currency to (2) quilted toilet paper. I suspect this trend will continue as Trump continues to bungle his way through his only term.
