Wall of Worry Wednesday – Time to Climb Again?

Posted on the 26 June 2013 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

Reading the apocalyptic tone in many of the comments today — the imminent demise of Japan, the imminent demise of France, the inevitable implosion of China, the Demolition Derby of Euro, Yen, Dollar and Swissie, and the collapse of gold —  all viewed against the fiery background of a Middle East abandoned to war because we don't need its oil anymore, a Brazil, Australia, Latam & Africa whose commodities are now worthless, and an Asia and India whose cheap labor has become superfluous — I have been given the sense that we are now riding the Fifth Wave up the Limpopo with Yellow Jack
