UPDATE: It’s all just one big misunderstanding.
It appears we did a 180 on this topic based upon Trump’s statement last week. After Iraq voted to expel US forces from the country, Trump told them to pay us back for the billions spent in the country, and how he’d harangue them with unbelievable sanctions. Well, here is a new approach: a letter to Iraq informing them of our planned departure.

In other news, Iran stated that after Soleimani was in the ground, on Tuesday, their campaign of revenge would commence. Back in the real world on Wall Street, no one cares. We don’t give a shit and stocks are sharply higher. They were down 200 at the open, but now they’re higher.
I would argue that the premium for WTI should be deflated, now that we’re leaving Iraq and Iran only wants to quarrel with us in court. This could of course all change rapidly, and stocks could once again tread lower. I am prepared to deal with that too. Nevertheless, it doesn’t look like the big crash is happening just yet and World War 3 has been delayed.
Or has it?
