INVESTOR INSIGHTS – Market Update
After a 3-day setback, it looks like the markets are ready for a rally today.
As of 7:15am, DJIA futures were up 161 points. This would indicate a gain of 151.19 points for the open.
The S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures also show sharp gains to start todays session.
A Bloomberg news report is boosting confidence that the US and China are ever closer to reaching a trade deal.
Right now, it looks like the US and China are closer to agreeing on the amount of tariffs that would be rolled back for phase-one.
Yesterday, the Dow dropped 280 points.
At one point, it dipped as much as 457 points.
These losses were tied to Trump saying it might be better to wait until after election day before making a deal with China.
“The volatility in equities over the last 72 hours is very discordant with the amount of actual incremental news crossing the wires. Markets are reacting too violently on both the downside and upside to all these headlines.”

YOUR SILICON VALLEY (LIBERAL) OVERLORDS
What’s going on at Google?
4 employees were fired during the Thanksgiving holiday for “data security violations.”
But that’s not how the employees are explaining it.
And they’re taking their case to the National Labor Relations Board.
They are demanding an investigation into what they call “a sweeping illegal campaign to quash worker organizing.”
It puts how Big Tech handles employee activism in the spotlight.
While Google isn’t alone in this struggle between Big Tech companies and their employees, they have been front and center in the public.
And Google won’t be backing down. They’re digging in for a fight.
They’ve hired on IRI Consultants, an anti-union consulting firm.
Two things that have employees up in arms?
The company possibly surveilling them. Plus company plans for a censored search engine in China and a Pentagon contract that could aid drone strikes.
“The company is afraid of something,” Berland said. “We don’t know exactly what, but the more they act to crush us, the more we understand what’s really at stake here and the stronger we get.”

TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME
You know you’re in for a full on mega dose of Trump Derangement Syndrome when this is an article’s opening paragraph.
“The stunningly consequential accusation spelled out in the Democrats’ impeachment report represents the most sweeping effort yet to capture the span of President Donald Trump’s alleged offense and to boil it into a crisp indictment.”
Oh, and that it’s on CNN Politics.
It was pretty much an entire article praising shifty Adam Schiff.
Just check out some of his soundbites:
Source: CNN Politics
“We should care about this, we must care about this, and if we don’t care about this, we can darn well be sure the President will be back at it doing this all over again.”
“The damage to our system of checks and balances, and to the balance of power within our three branches of government, will be long-lasting and potentially irrevocable if the President’s ability to stonewall Congress goes unchecked.”
“Any future President will feel empowered to resist an investigation into their own wrongdoing, malfeasance, or corruption, and the result will be a nation at far greater risk of all three.”
Says the man who wanted him out of office before he’d even unpacked.
CNN went on to lament us crazy conservatives.
“Given Trump’s almost mystical hold over Republican lawmakers and the vehement support he enjoys from his base, even a case as comprehensive as this is unlikely to overcome a nation that is irrevocably polarized over its President.”
As Schiff passes the torch and we get closer to formal Articles of impeachment, what will he be busy doing now?
