Political Unity…An Oxymoron

By -

Some things never change…I wonder if they ever will? Case in point, my post of November 7th, 2012…still seems relevant today, except the U.S. National Debt has now reached $18.6 Trillion and there are even deeper differences, not only between Democrats and Republicans, but also within these parties (on issues such as the refugee crisis, as one example).

I repeat:

“The war between its own political parties is a greater threat to America 

than any threat from its enemies.”

I’ve stopped hoping and am simply waiting to see action now…but am not holding my breath on this…perhaps the next generation will figure things out if ours isn’t smart enough to do so…some legacy, eh?


Third Major Leg Down Ahead For Shanghai Index?

By -

You can see my original post of July 8th and four subsequent updates covering China’s Shanghai Index here for background information.

In my last update of September 8th, I noted that a bearish moving average Death Cross had formed on the Daily chart and price closed at 3170.45. Since that date, price moved sideways for over a month before it, finally, rallied to where it closed today (Tuesday) at 3604.80.
