“There ain't no clean way to make a hundred million bucks.  Somewhere along the line guys got pushed to the wall, nice little businesses got the ground cut out from under them.  Decent people lost their jobs.  Big money is big power and big power gets used wrong. It's the system.”

Raymond Chandler, The Long Goodbye

In case you had any geopolitical concerns or worries about repercussions for a missile attack on another country, forget about it.

Stocks were in rally mode from the overnight.

Gold and silver were largely unchanged.

We strike where we please, and we hit them with ease.

Have a pleasant evening.
