    Never seen such a unprofessional display as last evening. IS the markets excepting the outcome already or still uncertain.

    Hi Dave,

    I agree with you, the bits and pieces I saw,

    Joe he remained calm but he seemed to have difficulty speaking his mind clearly.

    Trump tried to show off is skills as a speaker by letting is voice being heard and bullying through when it was Joes turn to speak,

    I think the producers should have controlled Trumps mic so that Joe could be heard clearly.

    I think the undecided voters will just stay home and not vote for either after last night’s ugly debate…….

  4. Bman/Van Says:

    The real question to ask is how much sugar high the market my get and for how long on a stimulus measure. It’s probably not much more than a lifesaver candy, small, short lasting and has a gap in the middle. Going to be hard for the markets to find a solid footing with the US election unknown timeline to get all the votes counted and certified. Also, given the main problem “COVID” is still here we may move sideways to down for the next couple months before hitting a low and forming a bottom for year end rally. A rally that then could extend well into 2021.

  5. Ron/BC Says:


    I think Joe has trained to “listen” to people so does so regardless. No point in listening to Trump though. And I agree with the cutting off one person’s mic so the other has his opportunity to comment. But the media loves the hype and chaos unfortunately. They always allow both speakers to speak and comment at once when it would be simple to just have one mic working for whoever has been given the chance to comment. I couldn’t stand to listen to that s.o.b. and finally convinced my partner to shut it off. No point in listening to that b.s. I don’t know why someone doesn’t …………………..

    I’m also surprised that someone hasn’t already…… used to be that too much money chasing too few goods resulted in inflation……that isn’t the case this time……..

    Markets are off to the races my indicators are bullish in a bullish environement as of this morning.

    So bought some nasdaq this afternoon.
