Markets are recovering from the doom and gloom of the past few months. The Dow Global index ($DJWO) is headed for a test of resistance at 228. Breakout would signal the start of a primary up-trend. Twiggs Money Flow (13-week) recovery above the zero line strengthens the signal.

Reminder:

The end of the third quarter is approaching and we can only be certain of the current resurgence when the quarter-end has passed and temptation for fund managers to window-dress their balance sheets has subsided.

The 20th Century was a horrible litany of absurd experiments and atrocities committed by intellectuals, or by elite groupings that claimed a higher knowledge. Simple folk usually have enough common sense to avoid the worst errors. Sometimes they need to take very stern action to stop intellectuals leading us to ruin.
