We are back again on Monday and seeing the markets on the defensive from where they closed on Friday. This past weekend we witnessed the closure of the summer Olympics, with an impressive medal score not only for the United States, but also for Team GB.
This past weekend Mitt Romney announced that he has picked his VP running mate, Paul Ryan, a 42-year-old Congressman from Wisconsin. Regardless of one's own political beliefs, we say Game On! What happens now in this race for the presidency is going to have a direct bearing on the markets, so we should all be paying close attention.
On the other side of the pond, BOE Governor King was quoted this weekend in the Sunday Mail (an English Newspaper) as saying he sees, "no obvious end in sight" for Europe's crisis. It would appear as though the European problem, as well as the slow down in China, is not on the radar of most traders at the moment.
Europe, China, and the upcoming general election will give traders a lot to think about. As always, we are going to rely on our Trade Triangles to point to where the markets are headed in the months ahead.
Now, let's analyze the major markets and stocks on the move using MarketClub's Trade Triangle Technology.
