    Deep State may very well start a war or crash the markets per Shipp.

        Dont forget, the president himself can be murdered with thousands/millions of witnesses and nothing will happen.
        Eisenhower had the loyalty of the army, he did nothing.
        A warning, whoop dee do, he did nothing.

        Clintons murder and steal at will, nothing happens, they could bump off Trump, what would happen? A few protests?

        They simply blame Iran or Venezuela,China or Russia the people would believe it hook line and sinker.

        Until something happens, Clinton in jail for example, I will believe its all for show.

        I’ve said all along that Shillary and Billary will never see the inside of a prison cell and I stand by that. IMO they won’t even have to give back a penny of their ill gotten gains. And I doubt much will happen to the Deep State swamp creatures. At most, maybe a few minor characters get indicted just for show.

      Maybe its just me but I dont see voting being too high on the priority list of things to do for illegal immigrants, only about 60% of americans vote federally as it is.
      Just cant see americans saying “go vote”.

    I think Trump’s threat of impending tariffs on Mexico are about his only option to put a stop to the out-of- control influx of illegal immigrants thanks to the Democrats who refuse to change the laws that incentivize their coming. At least we have a President who is doing something.

      Something must be done now but I am afraid it may already be too late.

      They are far from his only option, IMO. What he should have done was what he threatened to do months ago: declare a national emergency and beef up border security BIG time. Instead he lost his nerve and unilaterally surrendered to the Democrat Party on that —

        +1 Trump’s adding insult to injury.
        The vast majority of Americans will be negatively affected by tariffs.

          For those who don’t know the basics, tariffs not only increase the price of foreign goods, they also allow domestic producers to charge more money for lower quality goods. Nothing benefits the consumer like competition.

      IMHO this chart is about to roll over. The only time the RSI has been this high after a long rise is early 2016.

      I still wish someone could explain to me the relevance of this ratio in 2019. . .I’m hopelessly lost.

    GDX broke through 30 month downtrend resistance in January and has since come back to retest it. Whether the sector is starting a big sustainable move up from here or not, the action in recent weeks has not been big-picture bearish or bearishly unusual in any way.

    Tellingly, gold never did give up its important pivot support on a weekly closing basis and now that the 200 week MA is pointing up, that MA might not be revisited for a very long time. The last time it turned up, gold didn’t touch it for eleven years.
