Hello Eizell.




YESTERDAY: November 3


SPX 3369.02 58.78

LET ME BE STRAIGHT AND STERN. The market was up 554 points in the Dow, higher by 1.29 points in crude oil, and 59 points higher in the SPX BECAUSE THE MARKETS WERE OF THE MIND TRUMP WAS GOING TO WIN. Not because the markets thought Biden would win like the media sold.


I don't care what the POOP FLINGGING MEDIA MONKEYS SAY. Most of the media attributed the market being higher because they through Biden was going to win. That is B*LL Sh*T ! ! ! There is a famous joke that says “73.6% of all statistics are made up”. How does the guy even come up with his “65%” chance? What is his background and training? Why doesn't his editor hold him accountable?

The malfunctioning and corrupt media said Biden was going to win Wisconsin by 17 points. WHAT? The NY Times said Biden had a 70% chance of winning Florida. LOL How do they even manufacture this?



A - All you need to know is that CRUDE OIL was higher by $1 on Monday and $1.29 on Tuesday. Biden wants to shut down the country, meaning no oil will be used, and it would fall (not go higher) if the markets thought Biden was going to win. In addition, Biden wants to get rid of oil, fracking and coal altogether. Oil would not be higher.

B - Also, the market is not going to run higher on an candidate who wants to shut down the economy and raise taxes at the same time. IT WON'T HAPPEN.

C - Airlines would not have jumped huge on news Biden would win and shut down travel.

D - I am not saying anything negative about Biden. I am directing my attention to the media. They are a bigger enemy of the country than China. The do NOT report the news, they manufacture it.

E - Here is another fact the media conveniently forgot: The last 20 elections saw the market higher the day before the incumbent won.


(Look at e-mini chart above.)

The night session was crazy up to 1am NY TIME. The minis fell to -30 when Trump was initially behind in Ohio and Texas. So much for the markets wanting a Biden win?

In the chart above, you see the minis jumped 90 points (900 Dow points) when Trump took over the lead in Florida, Texas and Ohio. So much for the markets expecting a Biden win and liking it?

Then when the media declared Arizona a surprise win for Biden the market fell again. Hmmm.

TELL ME HOW I AM WRONG and the “poop-flingers” are right? What the media “reports/creates” doesn't even make sense, but people accept it as fact if it fits the narrative they want to hear. I thought when making up lies they had to be believable?





Please do not take offense to what I write here. I am not being partisan or trying to upset people. I am trying to make a prediction on an election, and how it will affect the market. I still maintain Trump wins as I have not wavered on this. Even if Biden wins, I am definitely MUCH CLOSER that the 14% lead and 79% chance of a Biden win that the media vomited. I do not dislike either candidate, rather view the media acting as creators - not reporters of news - as the real threat to the country. How is it different than Goebbels?

It is going to be a crazy week. There is going to be more lawyers in DC tomorrow than at a demolition derby.

Pennsylvania is a HUGE state in this election with 20 votes. They have more problems than a math book. They had some machines shut down, and people had to fill out forms, then deposit in garbage cans. They are also having problems counting the votes, so they shut down for the night. Why keep people up past their bedtime?

They also had a LOT of “questionable” ballots come from mail-in delivery. They are being inspected today. We likely will not get anything resolved today.

What happens today? WHO KNOWS. Either way, one party and their followers are going to cry foul. All I know is Twitter is flagging Trump, which is crazy. NO ONE expects any politician (Biden, Trump, Pelosi, Schumer or Schiff) to tell the truth. Why ban only one of these people?

I am still standing by my prediction (made December 31, 2019) that we will be positive for the year and making new all-time highs by the end of the year. I maintained this stance even when the SPX was down -36% for the year (this has been here since January 1).
