    George Noory from 'Coast to Coast AM' had a piece on this Superhighway last week. It was pretty informative. I had never heard of it until then. George always looks past the company line when he delivers his message.

    Now HERE is an interesting site for political junkies:

    http://markets.rasmussenreports.com/

    Allows you to make wagers on the "Political Stock" of various races and candidates. Today Senator Ted Steven's stock on re-election took a nose dive, and his opponet gained greatly.

    If you are a political junkie, and a stock trading guru, you'll LOVE this site....

    If you don't like bad news, do not read this report from the IMF


    It's from a blog, but the guy pulls information from the INF Report, for those who care.

    I was looking for where Coolhand puts his Stratfor links, couldn't relocate so decided to post here. Pretty interesting update on Turkey and strategic energy-economic alliances that could go either way at this point. I was just looking at the fundamental stats for the Turkey fund ETF yesterday thinking looked pretty interesting right now.

    Sunday's my day for reading international news papers/blogs, see what the rest of the world is talking about.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/in_pictures/8135031.stm

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8134896.stm there is an incredible pic halfway through this live video series. If you don't know what a "standing wave" is, now is your opportunity to learn by viewing.

    The Uganda bombings aren't the scale of natural & Gulf disasters that we've been experiencing, but IMO, have the potential for possible greater effect on world's markets - especially when linked to the passion in World Soccer tourney's (likely these bas**rd's dersired effect). I would have expected greater european effect today. Maybe tomorrow?

    Sarkozy announces French financial transaction tax

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy has announced plans to introduce a tax on financial transactions.

    The 0.1% levy will be introduced in August regardless of whether other European countries follow suit.

    The tax is part of a package of measures set out by the president to promote growth and create jobs.

    "What we want to do is create a shockwave and set an example that there is absolutely no reason why
    those who helped bring about the crisis shouldn't pay to restore the finances," he said.
