    There is a mountain of cash waiting to come into this market. It’s amazing how human tendency is to assume the worst and those posts appeared right on schedule on Tuesday. If money wanted to leave the market it should be leaving now before a possible US government shut down but it’s not. Once a deal is made and it will be cash will be scrambling to get in.
