Per the course, some dipshit(s) is loading up on oil going into the teeth of the summer slowdown, keeping steady pressure on the contracts. Who exactly it is that thinks buying crude oil while inventories are undergoing surprise builds and PMI is missing expectations, I cannot say. All I know is that this is cliché.
The market is rolling over and some genius is trying to strip down my shield and use it for a wake board on a lake somewhere.
The euro is also hitting pressure around that 1.3 area. Look, Europe is inevitably at the heart of this slowdown. Their unemployment and economy issues are what is derailing China. Japan is front and center, but Europe is always lurking in the background.
If we slow down, there is zero chance that the euro can hold this strength.

I don’t know what it is about the bar exam that turns people into sociopaths – I don’t want to know.
