"You don't have to be a Weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing" - Bob Dylan
In other words the binary (political) fate we face now depends wholly upon whether or not the zombies get their wake up call ahead of the election. Of course, my own work says that is by far the most likely outcome; however, I've been early before, because these fucking zombies can take some pain. They got monkey hammered in August, bought that clusterfuck. Got shellacked again in January, bought that disaster, and now they're still pretending there's nothing wrong. Like the Black Knight in Monty Python with no arms: "It's just a flesh wound". Nevertheless, relentless sector and asset class obliteration preceding and paralleling these above events has brought the critical juncture into view, attended by mass complacency, low volume, low implied volatility, short-covering, non-stop political circus spectacle and of course the meetings of the Money Printers.
