News - Daily Summary

It was basically a quiet day across the world. Nothing new in Ukraine except for accusation of involvement being traded by all the parties. The U.S. accuses Russia, Russia the U.S., Ukraine accuse Russia, and the cycle continues. There might be photographic evidence tying the gunmen who have occupied government buildings with Russian Special Operations units. Now that would be interesting. North Korea is increasing activity at a nuclear site. South Korea is recovering more bodies from the sunken ferry. Nothing major in Venezuela, Syria, or the middle east today. The search for the missing Malaysian airliner has been halted due to a cyclone in the area, so there is no news on the missing plane.

In the U.S. stocks were up and the rally started last week still continues. The price of oil was basically flat today, but gold and silver were down. There was no other major news in the U.S. today.

It was another day in the calm before the storm.

What do you think?
