  1. This is not a disparaging, but a constructive remark. Considering and for the sake of your new viewers, you should consider not using your white on black reverse Heisenberg logo image – as on the top chart. It looks far too much like a pig in a hat and glasses.

    As usual your catch and comparison between economic and market perception contradictions of relative certainty – is excellent.
