Geopolitical tectonic plates are shifting around the world presenting trading opportunities to those observers keen enough to pick up on them. As well as the usual safe haven assets such as gold, the Swiss Franc and Japanese Yen, traders may not miss out on the opportunities presented by somewhat “riskier” assets, such as oil.

This is a tricky question, as we have seen the sell-off that many bears were calling for since the beginning of time, so it now seems!
My indicators show that over 50% of retailers were calling for the Dow top since it surpassed the level of 16400 on the way up, toward the end of April nearly 4 months ago!
