Here Comes the Next Peace Dividend

Iran Nuclear Missile

I was amazed to see the Dow Average open up only 60 points this morning, and oil to fall a mere $1.50, given the enormous long term implications of a real nuclear deal with Iran. Over the decades, I have noticed that Wall Street isn’t very good at analyzing international political matters and the implications for their own markets. This appears to be one of those cases. The … [Read more...]
