    [size=5]SUPER GREEN FINISH – as Money never sleeps
    and as long as we keep A3’s cup full – lol
    we have a chance for a POSITIVE FINISH[/size]


    RALLY TIME on WALL ST … Two back-to-back 3.0 GDP quarters … Blow out earnings on TECH firms (NASDAQ up 107 points to all time record … although Janet & company may have to raise 25 bps at next meeting to KOOL things down a little 😉


    [color=blue][i][b][size=5]and for a rare FDIC Friday poem 🙂

    Bring out your banks, Bring out your banks
    If your local branch survives, it is time to give thanks

    Bring out your kitties, hounds, and deer,
    Toast frosty beverages full of good cheer

    The deer strive for the last tomato vine,
    As a favorite midnight snack, when they dine

    Winter inches ahead day-by-day
    as farmers harvest their last straws of hay

    Infrastructure investments will help us grow
    As 2017 has been a touch row to hoe

    Janet is trying to keep interest rates low
    and a few politicans could star in the Gong Show

    and while PERMA-BEARS buying TZA and FAZ weep
    just remember that MONEY NEVER SLEEPS

    And may mankind live peacefully as we share this turf
    or else one day the deer shall inherit the earth

    HAPPY FDIC FRIDAY :)[/size][/b][/i][/color]
