“Higher” Respondent Answers:

• Rally for the next three weeks !!
• trend
• The Federal Reserve mentioned a new normal’ I think maybe is ok i guess maybe
• This weekend NOV 30 2019 is of course, as usual, pivotal, we must see what global factor does what, and some more concrete metrics of the Friday and Saturday shopping results, Friday evening Beijing reported rather increased productivity numbers, out of the high 49 area, now at the 54 area, of course is it real, so let’s say it is, that’s a positive, however other corner of mouth calls the resolution ‘meddling’ while millions are cordoned into the electroperimeter up in the NW as if its just fine, and we have magnificent citizens walking together in HK with their held high USA Flags, a rather amazing tribute to just how blessed we are, and held in such esteem, while our Beijing leaning candiodates promote Fidel style ‘progressive_ism, a rather OxyMoronic as two photos would go together HK with flags of USA and BS EW etc calls to conduct financial vasectomies on those such as Leon Cooperman who grew up as a plain simple kid in Brooklyn and used smarts to build his multibillion company, he took the ‘buffet giving pledge’ many years ago and has given hundreds of millions already, and yet he and similar are decried as selfish… uh the total opposite of selfish is the thankful corporation creators that bring wonderful jobs and develop and refine the best products and services anywhere… ….so, in perspective, we see what next.. if we get more of same as full month, its continuation flow a go.
