Open Thread

If its Saturday nite, then its time for an Open Thread.

The questions before you:  Is this the end of the Fed cycle — or is it a pause before the next raise?

Oil? Energy?

I said about 6 months ago its an election year, so we can expect more terror warnings and thwarted attacks — but this one looked real — was it?

Has the market gotten used to terror — like it was used to MAD/threat of global nuclear destruction?

Lastly, does anyone still believe there still a Summer rally out there to be had?

What say ye?
