The weekend saw the news of a potential coup in Russia. However, it also appears to have dissipated as quickly as it developed. Western nations have spent decades trying to understand the Russian psyche, and have often failed to understand the country’s moves.
While the geopolitical fallout has been brief, investors and traders alike can see the crisis playbook at work. Stock futures dropped over the weekend, and gold prices inched higher. That’s typical of most geopolitical events – markets may initially have a move, but things will quickly settle back to their long-term trend.
That suggests that the market is likely to continue to trend higher in the coming months, especially if there’s a bit more of a pullback in the coming days off of overbought levels. Traders and investors alike should be looking for bargains on the long side here that haven’t run massively higher like tech stocks.

Most analysts have been downplaying the prospect of a recession. That’s changed in recent weeks at the macroeconomic level. But for company-specific changes, like a potential drop in earnings, Wall Street analysts look a bit behind the curve.
While some see a big profit recession for corporate America, including one who thinks it will be the worst in 50 years, chances are some sectors will fare better than others. Consumer goods companies have been good about gradually raising prices and passing off inflation to consumers. And energy companies are benefitting from a boom in energy prices right now.
Nevertheless, as the next earnings season unfolds over the summer, a number of companies will potentially surprise, mostly to the downside.

Dire prediction from former Morgan Stanley Chairman Stephen Roach:
“The dollar is going to fall very, very sharply.”
And bank “confusion” could have something to do with it. Looks like yet another economic ripple effect from COVID-19 is starting to become visible, and this one could have truly devastating consequences.
More personally, “How you all doing”? [At the almost mid-year point of 2020] with Canada Day and the 4th of July so close… Really… “How are you doing”?
It’s an interesting time, eh?
Not something any of us might have thought we would go through in our lifetime.
Every morning, l get up (maybe you, too) and I face what seems to be “the new reality.”
My wife and l laugh as we check in with each other on what the day holds — Not much!
Staying focused can be a challenge … And, that is just a “thought” and a choice.
Hear these words: Now, more than ever, staying relevant is important. Staying in front of those who you SERVE.
Please! Get clear on that word — SERVE.

“Do less of the things that don’t matter, so you can do more of the things that get you results.” @katenorthrup
We all want everything to go well for us, to get what we want or to feel happy, content and satisfied. The more we tell ourselves that ‘story,’ that our lives are supposed to be good, that’s what we start living as our experience. However, we live in a material world that gives us contrasting experiences – sometimes the opposite of what we want. Actually we should be more dumb! Darren explains:
Actually we ourselves create the problem or the challenge because it heightens our desire and helps us get really clear about what we want. Here’s why:
- The contrast can be very valuable to you … if you focus on the desire that the contrast has shown you or created for you.
- Worrying … dwelling in a problem and focusing on it, you aren’t using the challenge properly!
- The challenge you have invited into your life shows you what you don’t want … so that you can get really clear about what you do want.
- The trick is to get your focus off of what you don’t want … and to look at what you do want.
- When you are looking at what you want … you attract more of what you want, and feel.
“When you focus on the problem what do you think you get? Right, more problems.”
Very thought provoking stuff! 🙂
