    I’ve always thought of the stock market as being the biggest legal gambling scam in the world. People put their money down on the prospect that possibly they’ll hit the jackpot and select a company or corporation that’s going to make it big.

    Well, it seems a certain individual in American politics is making the right noises.

    There is an emerging sense of optimism being sparked by a trifecta of geopolitical happenings which have unfolded within the past 48 hours.



    China wants to come to the table, a deal on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is making good progress and Qatar is providing a $15 billion lifeline to Turkey to steady the lira and soaring interest rates. While I support the first two items of progress, keeping pressure on Turkey for the release of American pastor Andrew Brunson — after that country tried to negotiate clearance for a Turkish bank that has been under legal investigation by the United States for violating sanctions against Iran as conditions for his release — is the right posture.

    The artile then goes on to state that these events foreshadow good advances in the market making it a good time to speculate and invest.

    In other words, gamble on what President Trump is causing in the world’s markets.
