“The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine upon you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”

Numbers 6:24-26

The wiseguys managed to goose the stock indices up a bit into the close, but the overall performance of the markets into the year end is not a bang, but a whimper.

Gold and silver are pushing the breakouts.

There will be a Non-Farm payrolls report on Friday.

The trade tensions and government shutdown/dysfunction will continue to weigh on the markets in the coming year. Not to mention the lagging economic health of the broader public.

Have a Happy New Year's day.
