Yeah, it's all speculation at this point. The world has gotten so "globalized" and China needs things from abroad. So I think they're going to have to get along with the world, at some point, since they've grown so large. Of course, they could choose to "get along" with all of America's enemies. Seems, so far, that's the road they're choosing. Get out your popcorn!
Haha...got the popcorn out! Looks like the S&P plus the DOW futures are both down about .80% right at this point, as you've pointed out many times, the last hour is the one to watch. "May you live in interesting times", eh!
and the Dow is down over 400 points so far today. Wait until the major averages start trading under their 200-day moving averages. Whew! The Russell 2000 small caps and Dow Transports are already there.
