Disclaimer. After nearly 40 years managing money for some of the largest life offices and investment managers in the world, I think I have something to offer. These days I'm retired, and I can't by law give you advice. While I do make mistakes, I try hard to do my analysis thoroughly, and to make sure my data are correct (old habits die hard!) Also, don't ask me why I called it "Volewica". It's too late, now.
BTW, clicking on most charts will produce the original-sized, i.e., bigger version.

Off to the races
No, prolly not. But the US share market is drifting higher, and I suspect will continue to do so. It's about to break out of the top of the range it's been in since May (Ozzie markets have already decisively broken out on the upside)
Nothing too dramatic, because the US recovery continues to be a bit sickly. But China is the key, and as long as China continues to race along at 14% IP growth, big US companies (who earn a lot from exports and their overseas subsidiaries) are likely to have rising profits. But if China falters . . . we are in serious trouble.
I'll keep you posted.
