Coming Stock Market Crash $SPY, $VIX, $VXX 

Everything is pointing up. Euphoria is a sweet nectar.  We are entering over confidence. Stupid people about to be separated from their money. Case in point Bullish sentiment indicator on Dogs of Dow Sentiment Indicator.  Last we heard Bullish is now 68.4% vs 42.6% three months ago. That’s just outright red hot toxic danger.

Not enough for you look at their Neutral indicator 19% vs 405 three months ago. Everyone is piling on. Bears have shrunk to 12.7% vs 17.4%. Over exuberance. 

Remember Bulls make money Bears make money Pigs get slaughtered.

Castro’s Funeral Russian Propaganda American Response #Trump, #Putin

Foreign leaders will attend Castro’s funeral. Russia will use the spectacle for their own  propaganda purposes. Trump has rightfully called Castro a Brutal Dictator.  How will Trump deal with his friend who Putin? Or will the deal be America keeps Cuba and Putin keeps Syria.

#SoftwoodLumber Dispute Solved $WOOD, $TSLA, $SCTY

The softwood lumber dispute is suffering from the law of unintended consequences. Long a trade irritant between Canada and the United States it seemed to never move beyond the argument stage.

Now Elon Musk throws in new roof tiles that create energy, last a life time and can melt snow. Very cost effective. Check out the rationale for merging Tessa and Solar City. 

Why would a home owner want a roof made from softwood lumber. Both American and Canadian lumber has a problem.  

The roof tiles will go a long way to meeting green energy objectives.

Too bad about labour and small business on both sides of the border totally screwed on the softwood side.  Hope the solar jobs offset.

Trump as Chief Wire Brush and Stock Market Opportunities $SPY, $VIX

Trump was elected by a disgruntled electorate who lost faith in conventional leadership. He is the proverbial wire brush hired to clean things out.  Best places to invest. America. Something Warren Buffett has been saying for decades.

Lower American taxes means higher American spending. Trick wil be to improve employment. Next wave of factories will be highly robotic. Bad news for uneducated white male who did not finish high school.  Bad news for Black Youth with chronically high unemployment rates. 

Caveat Emptor Perspective.
