And so it begins...

Obviously "timing a market" in both price and direction should be impossible.  I've been doing for for 18 months now.  For those of you who have profited immensely from "the me" good for you.  Unfoturnately "it ends now."  I can "guesstimate" a buy going "into a war"--and recognize a sell once the inevitible war begins--but that's it.  I called it "the Phony War" for a reason--but unless you understand painting you don't understand war.  It's simply a "blank slate" that must be filled.  How it is filled "is up to the artist."  One thing is certain:  there will be no doubts--and certainly no doubter from me.  What "the market" will do "as a result of these mere political views" besides obviously "getting hammered right now" requires more than anything in my view "an act of faith."  Needless to say "that leaves a lot of room for more than just doubters."
