ASX bath of blood floods into streets

The Australian dollar is approaching another 70 cents retest within its bearish descending triangle this morning:

Bonds are bidly:

Stocks caught the escalator up now the lift down:

More pain ahead as the North Atlantic virus and political crisis intensifies.

Possibly a LOT more.

  2. I’m sitting on the sidelines waiting, waiting, waiting to put more back into the market. Second covid wave = more buying opportunities.

    Have to wait until after the election though! Otherwise I’m just gambling and I don’t do a lot of that, (I did put a bet on Trump yesterday for a bit of fun though).
