Interest rates. The Fed will raise interest rates this week. Friday’s payroll was pretty decent, so there is no room for them not to go. Three rate hikes are pretty much priced in to the Fed Fund’s curve out to the end of the year. If we go into Europe and European elections, Netherlands actually starts this week, but we are really looking at the French election as the key one, April 23-May 7. If Marie Le Pen wins the election, that is going to be very destabilizing globally, far more than BREXIT, far more than the US election, and far more than the Italian election. We haven’t seen any impact from British breaking trade agreements with the EU, other than the weakening of the British pound. If France decides to leave the EU, and it goes back to the French franc, the whole European project begins to come apart. BREXIT was a warning shot across the bow, and this would be breaking it apart. If it is not this one, maybe it is the Italian election, sometime within the next year. If one of these goes extreme right wing it is going to start falling apart. That is what he is really worried about. The US economy, for all its ills, is still the strongest economy in the world. The restructuring that Trump is trying to put into place should be very, very good in the long run. There is lots of execution risk. We are now hearing Congress may not go for these trade deals, it has to be revenue neutral for tax cuts, etc., thus execution risk for the next couple of quarters We just have to be cautious on the markets.

Hi, My name is Kathy Morris and i just want to share my experience with
everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i
never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i
discovered a hacking guy called Wilson. He is really good at what he is
doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works
or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random
money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online
purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i
gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and
conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. One week later i received
my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like
magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5000. This was unbelievable and the
happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $55000
without any stress of being caught. I don’t know why i am posting this
here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial
stability. Blank Atm Card has really changed my life. If you want to contact
them, Here is the email address:( )
And I believe they will also Change your Life. once again contact them via email:
