Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Hymn of the Cherubim - But If Not


"O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand.  But if not, even if he does not preserve us, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the images you have set up and commanded us to worship."

Daniel 3:16-18

"Walk with him this morning and believe in him and do what is right and he'll be with you even until the consummation of the ages.  Wherever you are going this morning, tell the world that you're going with truth.  You're going with justice, you're going with goodness, and you will have an eternal companionship.  And the world will look at you and they won't understand you, for your fiery furnace will be around you, but you'll go on anyhow.

But if not, I will not bow, and God grant that we will never bow before the gods of evil."

Martin Luther King, But If Not, November, 1967

"'We who live in the glory of heaven have no idea what it is like to live in darkness.  Every day of our lives we hear His voice and the heavenly music like rushing waters, but for them— there is so much darkness, noise and confusion on the earth.  Only a few who are humble, wise and still in their hearts hear His voice.  But now pay attention.  You are about to see something wonderful.'

And then, as the earth continued to rotate, many little lights spread out. Some would only light up briefly and then go off again. But most continued to burn evenly. As they looked further, they saw that a glowing light had spread over many parts of the earth.

'The glowing lights are His followers that He left behind; men and women who, with His help, continue to spread the light on the earth.  And now many little lights are beginning to shine all over the world.'"

J. B. Phillips, Ansichten eines Engels

"Behind the concrete, the visible events, behind all objective, logical considerations, we find the irrational element: The struggle against the demon, against the servants of the Antichrist. Everywhere and always demonic powers lurk in the dark, waiting for the moment when man is weak; when of his own volition he leaves his place in Creation, as founded for him by God in freedom; when he yields to the force of evil, he separates himself from the powers of a higher order; and after voluntarily taking the first step, he is driven on to the next and the next at a furiously accelerating rate.

Everywhere, and at times of greatest trials, men have appeared, prophets and saints who cherished their freedom, who preached the One God and who with His help brought the people to a reversal of their downward course. Man is free, to be sure, but without the true God he is defenseless against the principle of evil. He is a like rudderless ship, at the mercy of the storm, an infant without his mother, a cloud dissolving into thin air."

The White Rose, Fourth Leaflet, Munich 1942

"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

Ephesians 6:12

Stocks were in risk on rally mode.

The VIX fell.

Gold declined.  Silver held its own with equities.

The Dollar chopped sideways.

I think we have a rinse coming in equities.  Maybe not tomorrow but soon.

This is the way—  of Wall Street

Have a pleasant evening.
