Read and Heed!

Y'all be careful now.

I'm gonna go buy me some more ammo for the upcoming armed rebellion.

That is a fairly good assessment. Anyone who is paying attention knows that this rally is going to have several blowups as folks take profits [people would be idiots not to grab profits on 400-800% clicks in 6 week runs].

It is the nature of all bottoms. They start going up in fits and starts. What we DON'T need is a balloon to start which outpaces any foundational support. [think of carpenters rushing to build the three story house before the foundation is complete and set, just so they can get paid quicker]

FT provides some pretty balanced views of the economy. They tend to have a much cleaner view, sans partisan spin.

I guess in a den of thieves they would be considered the most honest.

So, what's the deal here? Should I pull out tomorrow? Invest in guns and ammo after that?
