Hope Floats: Fear Still Distant
The financial sphere along with the ruling army of entrenched corporate and political elites, deeply committed and harboring inordinate interest in perpetuating an unsustainable war/debt-based prosperity paradigm - are keeping their fingers tightly-crossed that "hope" and illusion, along with a likely forthcoming tsunami of ponzi-rigged bailout schemes will float the right number of boats - rather than sink the good-ship Lollie-Pop. It is in all of our best interest that all such hope truly "float," unlike the sinking anchor and shackle effects of fiat currency.
A multi-generational mutation - spawning oblivious visionary-wizards of social decay, have been slowly digging their own graves for more than one-hundred years now. When the last of them finally finish the job, may those with genuinely good intent R.I.P, and those without R.I.H.
A long, long way to go - in getting to "UNCLE"
Delusion and denial will likely reign supreme for a period. Until fear grips societies at the undeniable and clear visible hand of widespread economic pain, business shall continue virtually unabated, in its usual arcane manner.

The Week in Review:
The NASDAQ 100
Stinging like a bee in August - will "hope-float" the NDX back to a new high above 2060?
After three-weeks of unsustainable non-stop rally off the V-bottom low in August, the NDX must now stand-and-deliver into the heart of the "fall" season.
As we ponder such question, let us see how the balance of broad market indices' are floating into the month of September:
Re-testing multi-year lows, The Dollar remains under pressure and has a ways to go before reaching its lower trend channel boundary of support.
Though lagging the NDX in terms of snap-back percentages only, The Dow also maintains a level of "float-status" off the V-bottom low in August.
Gold has spoken - implying imminent anticipation toward a glut of global bailout schemes that will further erode purchasing power of the world's fiat currency's.
Though its trajectory channel is virtually flat in comparison to the Dow, The S&P is in "float-mode" just the same.
