SPIDERMAN SPOTTED IN CHINA!!!!

Does the image above mean anything? Nope, not a damn thing! I just thought it was cool. No wait, the U.S. and China are holding trade talks and maybe something good will come of it. Does that connect? Nope. How about high risk diplomacy? Or high risk Chinese stocks and ETFs? Well... let's just say I liked the image and leave it at that.

Meanwhile small-caps and techs again had a better day than the DJIA. Is this a trend? Nope. Let's give it more than two days.

Alright, that’s enough about tech and our stuff. Elsewhere, we look to the usual suspects to sense the mood and get a feel for the future.

I think the trade talks end Wednesday and both sides want trade peace. The Chinese sense a growing level of protectionism in U.S. politics, and should extend an olive branch to quell this mood.

You can tell we're focused on small-caps and tech closely right now. If the market should continue higher, these two sectors should follow along. If they don’t, it just means we’re in a “deal market” with future earnings taking a back seat. That would mean when the music stops, the party’s over.
