1…………> The FBI’s “Bonnie & Clyde”: Footsteps
Wayward counterintelligence FBI agent Peter Strzok was advised of an irregularity in the metadata of Hillary Clinton’s server that suggested a possible breach, but as one source said: “Nothing happened,” and he did not support a formal damage assessment.
The Justice Department Inspector General, Michael E. Horowitz, who is aware of the allegations according to intelligence community directive 732, damage assessments are done “in response to unauthorized disclosure or compromise of classified national intelligence.”
2…………> Laser Shield: Russia
President Putin speech that revealed Russian “significant progress in laser weapons and systems” being delivered to the military last year was accompanied by a video showing off what appears to be a heavy, truck-mounted laser platform, whose energy source was rumoured to be a portable nuclear power plant.
Experts suggested that Russia’s new battle lasers are most likely designed with close-range air defence in mind, and specifically for the destruction of drones and cruise missiles.
Another set of Mr.Putin’s new toys, including the Sarmat intercontinental ballistic missile, the Avangard hypersonic strategic missile, an ultra-long-range underwater drone platform, and more.
3………….> The iPhone Bandit: Mexico
A clumsy drug deal gone bad in Mexico’s borough of Venustiano Carranza led police to witness two men exchanging a bag of marijuana with another man, and the discovery and confiscation of 278 boxes containing 2780 iPhones, worth at least $1.5 million dollars and 800,000 in cash.
When the Mexican “Stan and Ollie” realized that police saw the exchange both fled the scene, but police were able to arrest one of them.
4………….> Hold On, California: Judge Orrick
If the leaders of California “La Resistance” against President Trump’s immigration removals of criminal convicted aliens were hoping to score a quick legal victory in the courtroom of U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick, they came short of victory, since he has turned down a request from the State of California to put an immediate stop to enforcement of a key part of the Trump administration policy aimed at punishing so-called sanctuary cities and other jurisdictions seeking to protect undocumented immigrants.
Judge Orrick said many of the legal issues made it clear that “the California government has not demonstrated forcefully” why a preliminary injunction blocking the Justice Department from using the two decades old law known as Section 1373 to deny certain federal grants to localities and states seen to be in violation of the federal law should be granted.
Short position at 24850 was covered for a gain of 50 DIA points, and new long position established at 24900, sell stop triggered at 25350 for a gain of 450 DIA points. Current position short at 25300, cover shortstop 24,700 was triggered for a gain of 600 DIA points, a new position long 24750, sell stop 24775 for a gain of 25 DIA points.
Stock market old timers have said that “you buy the rumour, and sell the news”, and that is exactly what is happening right now, with the news that President Trump is about to start a metal tariff war, slapping 25% surcharge on steel and 10% on aluminium. DIA resistance is in the 27,000 area, with supports at 24135, 21354 and 18900 level, US dollar in a downtrend, resistance at 1.003319 CHF, support at .92 and 0.9: Gold in an uptrend, watch break resistance of 1377 to be taken soon. The massive Fed balance sheet contraction will result in a $600 billion dollars being dumped on the credit markets each quarter, a leftover of the horrendous $4.3 trillion money printing of Obama’s septic tank that will surely exert a severe pressure on stocks and financial assets.
We warned long ago that an organized attempt to remove President Trump from office is underway, and if this activity is not curtailed soon, the market will open on gap below 20,000 with next stop 17300 and 11800 support levels.
Stocks were up 337 to 24875, DJ futures at +20
Gold down to 1322.7 and USD/CHF up to 0.94 due to the tariff imposition. Translation? As the dollar goes down, we have to wait and see if the new Fed Chair Jerome Powell will continue pressuring gold and the Eurasian block with it down below $1000/oz in an economic WW3. Watch sell stop at 24775. We have to wait and see if new Fed chair Powell will attempt to destroy Eurasian block by sending gold prices below 1000, despite the fact both Russia and China have been buying their whole gold production in local gold backed currency instead of money printing machines. In other words, US has lost controls of the precious metals complex, and with Trump’s infrastructure and tax cut campaign the National debt will soon be at, or over 30 trillion dollars, since D.C. swamp alligators have no intention dropping their pet projects.
