Saudi Crown Prince MBS ordered Khashoggi execution. CIA says so. Still need Saudi’s in fight against Iran. Do not need MBS. Saudi Arabian Kingdom of Saud has many competing interests. Treachery is an established weapon. Watch for an assassination, a successful assassination. Clear the decks fresh start keep trying to kill Persians and selected terrorists. American and western hands are clean very clean. House of Saud sustains itself. Come on haven’t you ever watched House of Cards. Question is when.
Today what was once a symbol of American greatness probably enters liquidation. Sears is recommending its own liquidation. Tens of thousands of employees lost jobs, suppliers not getting paid, pension plans gutted, investors less than happy. Tales of woe all around.

Bezos is on such a roll.
Up down and around. The market is psychotic. In layman’s terms the market is fat and ugly. In the words of the president “she is not a Ten anymore”.
More metaphors if you chase too many girls you might catch something that’s very awkward and makes your doctor shake his/her head.
Market is bouncing up. People want heroin again. They want that drugged out high. Fools. The best time to by stocks is When Blood flows down the street. For one thing not enough margin calls yet.
