<<<<<<<We are also seeing more unpopular/(troubling to status quo stuff) coming out of the Whitehouse that is causing a lot of media noise that is also potentially upsetting to investors especially given the size of the run since Trump was elected.
I was premature in thinking the honey was over when I stated this thread and I could be wrong again, but it has more of that kind of feel to me now.<<<<<<
it would help if you use the facility to give quotes, rather than your DIY method, which does not tell the reader who you are quoting. The " button at the top of a post will do that for you quite simply, and you can use it for different posts in the same reply.
Good to see you still posting ody, things have gone a little quite and I am mildly surprised at how little opinion is being put forward in the threads on this macro board since there seems to be so many eyeballing the posts but failing to make any comment and a diverse collection of views should and would be quite welcome.
My own view is that we are living in an age of disrupton on many levels and disruptors of all shapes and sizes are changing the face of almost every facet of our social and economic life.
Trump is an archetypal disruptor who will, again in my view, be institutional in attemting to mark a great change from the path we have been sleepwalking along and I think we are in the very early stages of what I expect will be great and on the whole a beneficial change.
I don't believe there will be any immediate universal sunny uplands aound the next corner, there is no such thing as plain sailing through periods of politcal or economic upheaval. Both here and in the US the magnitude of the change will be so large and wide ranging that the course of events will beimpossible to predict but Trump love him or hate him is one of the few people that looks likely to be able to implement those neccesary changes.
The shear size of this disruption together with impotance of much of the old, almost rdundant political idealogy is bound to have many repercussions and leave many people smarting almost dazed as they are being parted from much of their long held belief systems that go vey much to the core of present economic idealogy.
Apparantly acording to an article in The Times today Trump's presidency will not derail the global shift towards greener energy according to Shell who want to bein he vanguard of that transition.
We do live in very strange times and I have to say I do have a very different belief system but it is as you observed more eof an emotional stance as visions of the future must remain. The article is behind a pay wall but is well worh a read if you can get access to it.http://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/busin ... -k96kl3g7w
Time to put a bit more on a Marine Le penn I think.
