Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

"Success breeds complacency. Complacency breeds failure. Only the paranoid survive." - Andy Grove   Perhaps this qu…
"This will be unpleasantly earnest, but having witnessed the atmospherics the past 10 days it's what I think needs saying: Everyone, get serious. Democracy is not your plaything.... This is not a game. The president of the United States has produced a building crisis that is unprecedented in our history. The question, at bottom, is whether Donald Trump has demonstrated, in his first four months, that he is unfit for the presidency-wholly unsuited in terms of judgment, knowledge, mental capacity, personal stability. That epic question is then broken down into discrete and specific questions: Did he improperly attempt to interfere with an FBI criminal investigation, did his presidential campaign collude with a foreign government, etc. But the epic question underlies all. It couldn't be more consequential and will take time to resolve. The sheer gravity of the drama will demand the best from all of us. Are we up to it?... But if Mr. Trump is truly unfit-if he has demonstrated already, so quickly, that he cannot competently perform the role, and that his drama will only get more dangerous and chaotic, how much time should pass to let him prove it? And how dangerous will the proving get?... The president's staffers seem to spend most of their time on the phone, leaking and seeking advantage, trying not to be named in the next White House Shake-Up story. A reliable anonymous source who gives good quote will be protected-for a while. The president spends his time tweeting his inane, bizarre messages-he's the victim of a "witch hunt"-from his bed, with his iPad. And giving speeches, as he did this week at the Coast Guard Academy: "No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly." Actually Lincoln got secession, civil war and a daily pounding from an abolitionist press that thought he didn't go far enough and moderates who slammed his brutalist pursuit of victory. Then someone shot him in the head. So he had his challenges... Stop leaking, tweeting, cheering. Democracy is not your plaything. There's a sense nobody's in charge, that there's no power center that's holding, that in Washington they're all randomly slamming into each other. Which is not good in a crisis... We're chasing so many rabbits, we can't keep track-Comey, FBI, memoranda; Russia, Flynn, the Trump campaign; Lavrov, indiscretions with intelligence. It's become a blur. But there's an emerging sense of tragedy, isn't there? Crucially needed reforms in taxing, regulation and infrastructure-changes the country needs!-are thwarted, all momentum killed.... The world sees the U.S. political system once again as a circus. Once the circus comes to town, it consumes everything, absorbs all energy. I asked the ambassador to the U.S. from one of our greatest allies: "What does Europe say now when America leaves the room?" You're still great, he said, but "we think you're having a nervous breakdown." It is absurd to think the president can solve his problems by firing his staff. They are not the problem. He is the problem. They're not the A-Team, they're not the counselors you'd want, experienced and wise. They're the island of misfit toys. But they could function adequately if he could lead adequately. For months he's told friends he's about to make big changes, and doesn't. Why? Maybe because talented people on the outside don't want to enter a poisonous staff environment just for the joy of committing career suicide. So he's stuck, surrounded by people who increasingly resent him, who fear his unpredictably and pique and will surely one day begin to speak on the record. A mystery: Why is the president never careful? He doesn't act as if he's picking his way through a minefield every day, which he is. He acts like he's gamboling through safe terrain. Thus he indulges himself with strange claims, statements, tweets. He comports himself as if he has a buffer of deep support. He doesn't. Nationally his approval numbers are in the mid to high 30s. His position is not secure. And yet he gambols on, both paranoid and oblivious... Here's an idea. It would be good if top Hill Republicans went en masse to the president and said: "Stop it. Clean up your act. Shut your mouth. Do your job. Stop tweeting. Stop seething. Stop wasting time. You lost the thread and don't even know what you were elected to do anymore. Get a grip. Grow up and look at the terrain, see it for what it is. We have limited time. Every day you undercut yourself, you undercut us. More important, you keep from happening the good policy things we could have done together. If you don't grow up fast, you'll wind up abandoned and alone. Act like a president or leave the presidency." The president needs to be told: Democracy is not your plaything."  --The Wall Street Journal, Peggy Noonan: "Democracy Is Not Your Plaything" I pride myself on being transparent of view, hard-hitting in analysis and logical in analytical argument. I have not and will not shy away from unpopular or contrarian views. This morning will be no different.  It is my view that Washington, D.C., is skating toward more uncertainty at a time in which secular developments, principally in globalization and technology, have served as headwinds to global economic growth. As such, effective fiscal policy bears more weight in the investment equation.   For months the market has been accepting of the Trump administration -- among other things, compulsive and impulsive tweeting, his obsession with the press and, arguably, a vague view of the truth -- in the belief that his fiscal policies will catalyze growth. I believe that perception is now changing rapidly.   While many don't want to read this, will disagree with my assertions and will view this as a political statement (it is not, it is my objective view of the situation), truth matters and "orange is the new stupid."   It is my view that the president's behavior and the administration staff's disorganization and chaos, lack of cohesiveness and clarity of thinking and inability to work with others in government, including his own party -- often routinely accepted since the November election, and perhaps even before --  may start to have an adverse and cumulative impact on investor and consumer sentiment, on the timing and substance of the implementation of the administration's initiatives, on the capital markets and on the economy. Regarding the economy, the flattening 2s/10s yield curve, the low 10-year U.S. yield of 2.23% and the falling prices of commodities all point to far lower actual Real U.S. GDP growth than consensus expectations and/or the administration's goals.   Reflecting the above, I am growing more confident that trading opportunities are about to multiply as It's Not Ronald Reagan's "Morning In America" .   Donald Trump will make market volatility and economic uncertainty great again.   Going forward, I am of the view that trading is to be a far more attractive strategy in delivering good investment returns than buying and holding for those with less than a 12-month time frame.   Higher-than-average cash reserves seem appropriate in a backdrop of economic, profit, political, geopolitcal and policy uncertainties.
