    And a bumpy ride it was, with the Dow down 4.42 pct, S&P 4.71 and NASDAQ 3.6. And it’s only Monday. Cash, even at one pct is looking attractive.

    This could be the big one.It is surprising that
    gold isn’t rising in price.Oil is going down,also.
    This isn’t the fifth wave,in my opinion,it will
    come in October like in 1929.But,it is close.
    Years of letting foreigners run are government
    will soon mean total collapse.The USA has become
    a rudderless ship and eventually will hit the rocks.
    The sad thing is we won’t know when it happens.Even in
    1929, the newspapers and politicans kept saying it
    was only a temporary setback.As late as 1934,the politicians were saying the economy was rebounding..
