E First Kill All The Lawyers
Because market forces have pushed up US dollar interest rates, most other countries have seen the same increase. Also stories about company legal issues, which justify my quote from William Shakespeare heading this blog.

E Penalties And Pardons
President Trump went ahead and raised the steel and aluminum tariffs on Canada and Mexico and European countries despite the fact that they are our allies. He alleges that they are acting as conduits for underpriced Chinese metals.

Stocks rose after the White House demands on China were eased, ending the threat of a trade war soon.

I am very fond of exotic stocks like Czech ones because they have growth levels unreachable in most developed stock markets where hundreds of analysts are looking for performance.

dear Susan

my subscribers know the name. it is Aurora Investment Trust. An IT under UK law is the same thing as a CEF under our law and US individuals may buy into one. However we are not allowed to buy non-US open-end funds under the PFIC law.
