Think we bottomed today and go higher into Friday's close. Ukraine non-event as mighty dollar moves higher and rate rate hike inches closer.
Question is will you plays dust or go for a 'home run" with Jdst? Gold falls rest of year and well into 2015.
I'm going with the hint of a Fed hike in six, seven months. You can always outlive a nuclear attack if you have cover, food and clean water. On the other hand a rumored Fed rate hike can kill you in seconds.
with her comments that rates will rise now that U.S. economy data is so Strong. The Fed always said rates were tied in with improving U.S. economy and be data driven with improving numbers. Well Yellen just said, "get ready to rumble - higher rates coming in 2015. YIKES.
Putin is now back into a corner. - A analysis reveals that Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and the U.S., all countries with solid economies, would not be affected by the sudden shift downwards. The same cannot be said for three gas and oil producers, who are cash-strapped and will be further hurt by falling prices. Indeed, the countries likely to suffer the most due to lower prices of oil are Russia, Iran and so-called Islamic State. These countries are also currently engaged in highly controversial conflicts with the United States and the West. Russia is involved in Ukraine’s civil war, supporting the separatists, a highly criticized move condemned by the United States and its Western allies. Allies are studying how best to impose sanctions on Russia and to hit it where it hurts the most – its economy. Iran is already suffering from sanctions imposed by the West for its pursuit of a nuclear program. Countries remain skeptical over Iran’s claim that it will not use nuclear technology for military purposes. The Islamic Republic is involved in the civil war in Syria, supporting Bashar Assad, whom the US and its allies want to see vacate the Syrian presidency. Iran also funds and supports the Lebanese Shi’ite militia, Hezbollah that is backing Assad. The other entity that will be hurt by falling oil prices is the so-called Islamic State, who controls some of the oil wells in Iraq and Syria. The Islamic State was under-selling the established markets by accepting payment of $18 per barrel. While Russia, Iran and the Islamic State are cash-strapped, their involvement in current conflicts further drains their economies. Historically, it is worth recalling that near the end of the Cold War, when Washington and Moscow were at each other’s jugular, the US pushed for lower oil prices to apply further pressure on the Soviets. What followed was the beginning of the end of communism and the disappearance of the Soviet Union. What is happening today is
Bull scared of up coming Russia take over of Ukraine. But Europe is more scared as Ukraine first, then Baltic States, Poland, Belarus and East Germany. Putin out of control as the West starts to sweat.
World War III Coming To a Theater New You.
According to information released by NATO on Tuesday, the Russian military has increased troop movement close to the Ukrainian border in recent days. "We see Russian troops moving closer to the border with Ukraine," NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg told reporters in Brussels.
all depends how bad mid-term elections go for either party. If we get dead-lock elections as in run offs - market craters before our very eyes.
NATO's highest ranking officer, a U.S. general, said conditions were now in place to create a "frozen conflict", a term the West uses to describe rebel regions carved out of other ex-Soviet states that Moscow protects with its troops. In other words we either have a long drawn out civil war withing Ukraine or Russia invades and steps closer to confrontation with Nato.
as everyone throws up their arms over unresolved Senate races and a very weak President for the next two years. Kind of like have Jimmy Carter as Captain of the Ship and Republicans and Democrats rowing in opposite directions.
so the only question is will it be a large Sell off Wednesday or relatively mild downward move?
Google it baby and then head to your nearest store that offer nuclear bomb shelters.
Russia continues to stoke fears of World War 3 after a sharp increase in military activity in the North Atlantic and new revelations that the nation simulated an attack on Denmark this summer.
The way the stock is moving up I wouldn't be surprised if we're not over $40 a share by Friday. Next week might even be in the $50's/
so its time for Uncle Sam to defend the homeland and start signing Feye to some very Major Govt. contracts. Looking for $35 plus tomorrow as FireEye gets closer to Nov. 4th earnings report and also get closer to Uncle Sam for cyber security protection.
Some of the most sophisticated hackers in the world may be taking orders from one of the U.S. government's biggest adversaries: Russian President Vladimir Putin.s A new report released Tuesday by the security firm FireEye said it has uncovered evidence of "long-standing, focused operations that indicated a government sponsor -- specifically a government based in Moscow.”
The researchers said several clues suggest the Russian government is behind a widespread hacking campaign with victims around the world. For one, the hackers have spied on several targets of high interest to the Russian government, including several Eastern European governments, NATO and the country of Georgia, the report said. The hackers also likely come from Russia because they used computer code that contained Russian words and operated during Moscow working hours, according to the report.
or was he on that jet in Russia that took the life of the Total CEO? Seems a drunk snow plow driver drinking to much Smirnoff took out the private jet and the Total CEO. Many think the "bull" was also on the runway jet, thus the major reason Futures are crashing.
Futures now down 50 points even after China GDP bogus numbers beat estimate of 7.2. Sure looks like a good size sell off tomorrow with KO going to report lousy earnings before the bell. See you around $197 at market open.
