For Markets, Geopolitics Grabs Center Stage – Who’s Excited?!

After all, the market's muted response to geopolitical turmoil in 2016 and 2017 was in large part down to the central bank put, which is now in question. And it goes without saying that the low vol. regime seems to have come to an end over the past couple of months.

    Unless the U.S., the U.K. and France enter the war against Assad’s forces to achieve a regime change, we are simply using Syria as a weapons testing ground, to gauge our latest weaponry and Russia’s possible counter measures. To me, the resulting casualties, even military personnel, are as lamentable as the gassed civilians. I doubt that a single individual who was behind the latest gassing attack will even be injured.

    • If I wanted to stir the shit pot and get richer, I would send my clandestine (or proxy) troops into Syria, launch a gas attack, blame someone for it, fire off my surplus weapons to make a political statement about “solving” the problem, sell some weapons to people in the area who would take advantage of the situation, then watch as my weapons stocks skyrocket.

      Just saying.

    Markets fear trade wars, but cheer shooting wars.
