Good news everyone. It appears the Algerian hostage “situation” has been “resolved.” All of the terrorists (15) are dead– as well as the hostages (35). But at least the natural gas facility has been returned to its rightful owners and law, plus order, has been restored. Perhaps the gents over in Algeria took a page out of the Waco, Texas playbook in learning how to properly deal with a hostage “scenario.”
Futures are sharply higher this fine, glorious, morning. On the bones of hercules himself, we’re all going to make lots of money today. Most of us will wear bowed ties and take our families out for “steak dinners” this evening, in order to properly celebrate today’s market wins. A small minority of you will sit at home watching Youtube videos, swearing to the almighty himself that the entire town of Newtown is one giant fiction, created by Hollywood to strip Texans of their pistols.
Some of you are very ill, indeud.
The Japanese yen is on the decline again, further validating my robust opinions that the Samurai nation of Japan is the single best developed stock market in the world right now. HMC and SNE are my top picks, alongside Yahoo Japan and NMR.
