  1. Plentiful, cheap, easy money from the Fed

    Corporate buybacks

    Almost daily jaw-boning from Trump, Kudlow, Clarida or some other Fed hack

    Trade accordingly.

    The US has the best economy in the world right now. Where should investors and traders put their monies? Lots of monies in the sidelines as one money manager said on Bloomberg yesterday. Maybe, they are going in the US stockmarket?
