Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Standing Before the Nation With Judgement

"And they healed the pain of my people disgracefully, saying 'peace and prosperity,' when there was no peace or prosperity."

Jeremiah 6:12

"Easy is the descent into hell;
The door to death and darkness stands open, day and night.
But to retrace one's steps, to return once more
to the pure clean air, and cheerfulness and life:
That is our task, that is our true labour."

Vergil, Aeneid

The Non-Farm Payrolls came in 'better than expected,' as long as one did not look too closely, and not distinguish between low-paying, part time jobs versus jobs that carry a living wage that would enable further economic expansion.

Judgement and justice are long overdue—  but they are coming.

The highlight for next week will be the Producer and Consumer inflation figures.

I hope you have had a pleasant weekend.
