Sure to improve Goldman Sachs’ sh*tty image. – Ilene

I need IMMEDIATE clarity on this new Goldman rat policy, preferably from a real Goldman rat, as there are just too many questionable words out there for any reasonable Goldman rat to keep up with. Is asshat allowed? How about bonehead? Or **-burping **** slut? I need to know. Like now.
There will never be another s— deal at Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
The New York company is telling employees that they will no longer be able to get away with profanity in electronic messages. That means all 34,000 traders, investment bankers and other Goldman employees must restrain themselves from using a vast vocabulary of oft-used dirty words on Wall Street, including the six-letter expletive that came back to haunt the company at a Senate hearing in April.
OK so obviously "shitty" is out but what about all the almost-profanity out there? What about cocksucker, where does cocksucker stand? That’s not technically a swear word.
That’s one c*cksucking CDO. Yeah OK maybe it is a swear word. Whatever, they can call it the Unicorn and Rainbow Deal and it’s still shitty if you ask me.

Good for Tiger, and maybe even Buddhism. Sometimes it takes a life-changing disaster to find a healthier course. We hope Buddhism will help Tiger achieve the hole in one he’s looking for so he can keep his putter in his bag. – Ilene
Tiger Woods just announced plans to focus more on Buddhism to help him get his life together.
This will no doubt disappoint Brit Hume, who infamously suggested Tiger use Christianity to get over his sex addiction.
Tiger says he’s heading back to rehab, and he’ll use the religion to find his center.

The “value added” craze has been sweeping the mining world. With governments from Zimbabwe to Indonesia calling for miners to upgrade copper, nickel, aluminum and platinum in-country — rather than exporting lower-value mineral concentrates.
And this week, the world’s second-largest lithium nation jumped on the bandwagon. Calling for increased processing of lithium in the country, and offering financial incentives for those who help.By Dnn87 (Self-photographed) [GFDL or CC BY 3.0], ...

Courtesy of Declan.In the end, it was Theresa May and not Trump which saw the Russell 2000 cut through support and confirm the earlier 'bull trap'. This change coincided with a 'sell' trigger in +DI/-DI. Only stochastics are hanging on to its 'buy' signal.

Brownback wants Trump to emulate what he did in Kansas because it worked so well:
By RICHARD RUBIN and WILL CONNORS
Sam Brownback, the Kansas governor whose tax cuts brought him political turmoil, recurring budget holes and sparse evidence of economic success, has a message for President-elect Donald Trump: Do what I did.
In 2013, Mr. Brownback set out to create a lean, business-friendly government in his state that other Republicans could replicate. He now faces a $350 million deficit when the Kansas legislature convenes in January and projections of a larger one in 2018. The state’s economy is flat and his party is fractured......
