Kc128x88

I have to emphasize again:

I don’t believe in forecasting
• I

• Neither do you, nor does

Bull or Bear are irrelevant labels.

That said, I will be defending why I see "risk rising and opportunities diminishing in the U.S.

This also means that there may be a terrific buying opportunity coming up — for equities, and maybe for for Real Estate, also. But you have to be well positioned to take advantage of it.

The graphs are actually too wide for my layout, so they require a 2nd click . . .
