The charts, graphs and comments in my Trading Blog represent my technical analysis and observations of a variety of world markets...
* Major World Market Indices * Futures Markets * U.S. Sectors and ETFs * Commodities * U.S. Bonds * Forex

N.B.
* The content in my articles is time-sensitive. Each one shows the date and time (New York ET) that I publish them. By the time you read them, market conditions may be quite different than that which is described in my posts, and upon which my analyses are based at that time.
* My posts are also re-published by several other websites and I have no control as to when their editors do so, or for the accuracy in their editing and reproduction of my content.
* From time to time, I will add updated market information and charts to some of my articles, so it's worth checking back here occasionally for the latest analyses.

The "Arts"

Actress, Ms. Meryl Streep, attacked football and mixed martial arts at the 2017 Golden Globes as not being an "art." Will she include fencing next...or what about learning how to walk on artificial legs for the first time, or learning to use one's damaged brain after a stroke? All of these, and much more, are, indeed, an "art."

She and others need to stop attacking and start providing solutions and support to those less fortunate, in need, struggling, and alone in their quest to make a better life so, hopefully, they can, in turn, become self-sufficient and maybe also help others in the future. And, perhaps, a mixed martial artist also needs help to get started or continue in his/her craft in order to make a living.

No one should be judged or demeaned for trying to look after him/herself...maybe he/she will grow up to be President one day, as well. So, please don't shatter their dreams by degrading their efforts...you may be pleasantly surprised by what you discover about yourself and others along the way.
