2020-03-17T15:50:00-04:00March 17, 2020|

Today was hardly a rally – yes, it will look good on the nightly news but lacked serious conviction relative to what has been seen of late.  I’m not trusting this rally at all and did not participate in it one bit today. People will chase after it today and [...]
