OR MONDAY: (10/17) We continue to move toward 4 major financial market turns over the weekend so changes of trend next week for higher gold and lower dollars has to be paid attention to. We do expect some huge event involving leadership or govt. over the weekend that will be a surprise given hourly headlines. Lack of confidence in leadership and government are strongest for the year from Sunday into the end of the month. Earthquake and violence cycles are stronger and cycles are very powerful for US government transformation. Will Obama have the leadership to push us out of this election mess or will he continue to threaten Russia to take attention away from Wikileaks? Trump is too strong and will not back down and not sure Hillary knows who she is fighting. Last few years, the markets have gone up the last few weeks of October but this is an election year so maybe more like 2008, which was a down October.
