Other random thoughts from my vantage point in the real world:
- Machine Tools - big ticket items selling in the $100k to $300k range are moving briskly. This is not opinion, it is fact... right here in the real economy.
- The shady silver pitch [wo]men are working the phones again. I got a call the other day from some lady seeking to let me in on a big silver trade. Her company is making a recommendation on silver and I can be part of it! Ha ha ha... I tried hanging up with a "thank you I am not interested..." and she keeps pitching and I am like "okay I am going to hang up now..." and she keeps yammering on and I let out a laugh and hung up. The only question is from what levels are the boiler rooms going leave the unsuspecting victims holding the bag?
