Ukraine seems to have cooled down though there are some that think things will heat up again. I am not sure what will happen, but we can trust or elected officials to make things worse. The price of Gold is higher. I guess there are some who think things are going to get worse. Stocks are higher with the S&P 500 in record territory. It is amazing what low interest rates, FED security purchases, and outright manipulation will get you. If things are so good why are so many stores being scheduled for closings? Tomorrow we get the employment numbers for January. That is going to be interesting. I will not be surprised if the participation rate has been fudged again to make the numbers look better than they are. Not much news from Venezuela or any other country in disarray. I guess we are still in the calm before the coming economic storm.
What do you think?
