All Eyes on an International Vote

Capital moves quickly in today’s world. Trade with countries and companies around the world is efficient and prompt. With such movement a co-dependence can occur. If one country catches a cold it can effect others.

First British Vote since 1975 – To Stay or leave the European Union

David Cameron, current British Prime Minister promised a vote for the British people on the possibility of leaving the European Union. Here is a terrific BBC summary of the entire event and great background. Cameron desires staying in the EU.

Given the afore mentioned co-dependence, capital market fluctuations will likely occur as the polls drift back and forth on the vote. Currently the vote is seen as being VERY CLOSE!

We have no position either way, however as countries become larger and more independent, it does not surprise us on a desire for such vote.

Buckle up as the vote is Thursday June 23rd, and may make for interesting headlines along with violent moves by trigger happy traders who may be standing in for their elders who are in the Hamptons !

Doogie gets ousted shortly – Happy Labor Day — Relax, Enjoy – You Deserve it!

Today is the last “Unofficial” summer doldrums holidays for market participants. Next Tuesday (Monday is Labor Day- Happy Labor Day) the ExperienceHampton’s energy and population declines, as many head for their regular desks, rather than the remote offices.

Our bet… we will all see calmer capital market participants as Doogie Howser is pushed aside, and experienced, well rested, hands take over the wheel.

Our office will be closed on Monday- Cathy resting her recently operated on back- Donald prepping for a new addition to the family, Kathy our editor – readying for an extended trip — and myself  … Traveling back – leaving as many arrive.

But all of that is next week !!!

Pat yourself on the back, you have worked hard, had a great summer, and shared time with those special in your life. Best of all, you have a long weekend to unwind, reflect, and share once more, before the race to the end of the year ensues.

Enjoy ! You deserve it !!
