I feel I’ve gotten a little soft here during the past few weeks.
In not being as “overly thrilled” with the market as I normally am – the blogging has suffered as……if you don’t have anything good to say well……you know.
This tiny blip / risk aversion based on “at least two” of the black swans we spoke of last week restores some faith in the fact that markets are still markets, people are still people, and emotions are still emotions.
The Central Banks do all they can to lull you to sleep but in reality are relatively powerless against the “true forces” of fear and greed – where human emotion will always take the front seat.
Take for example the massive printing efforts in Japan – propping up the Nikkei. It’s all going to look pretty ridiculous as “only a matter of days” can erase “1000’s of points” in a heartbeat. Imagine when things really turn? ( as they will ).
Russia has put Obama back in his bunker with suggestion ( if not action already ) dumping U.S Treasuries as well US Dollar reserves alongside their good buddy China – essentially holding the capability to “level the U.S economy” without the use of a single missile. You gotta love that eh?
As suggested earlier Putin will not let these tyrants in Washington get their grubby little mits on Ukraine without a fight….and rightfully so (if you understood anything at all of the importance of Ukraine, and its massive network of natural gas pipelines that feed Europe).
Obama can kiss my ass. He’s beyond desperate, and essentially “toying with war” as Russia merely protects what it already has.
Me…..I’ve got important things to take care of over the next couple of days – “very” important things…so I will look for WWIII to start Monday at the earliest ………..and “never” at the latest.
Have a good weekend all – keep your eyes peeled late Sunday.
Short AUD – killer, and the long list of gold and silver miners entered “weeks ago” doesn’t hurt either.
