I’ve had readers ask about this next debate.
OK, so far Obama is 2 for 2, but will he make it 3 for 3? Let’s ask the tarot…
Will Barack Obama win the next debate?
A surprising, No.
It looks like the appearance of some financial stability will enable the McCain camp’s nasty smear campaign to carry more weight. It also looks like McCain’s behavior may throw Obama off, as he will be unable to completely stave off the assault of unjust, and hurtful words. This may make Obama look weaker than he has.
I asked for further clarification and got:
It looks like McCain has been working hard on this one and is going to also hit Obama with the inexperience thing, with Obama being “naive.” McCain’s going to cite how experienced he is and how hard he has worked to help our country. But this will be an empty victory.
My intuition is this will not be a terrible lose for Obama, but McCain will win over some undecided voters and shore up some of his base. We will see McCain narrow the gap for a little while after this debate. Until the economy starts to tank again.
You’ll see a downward spiral in the stock market again. So you may want to trade before the debate if your worried. I feel the spiral will be next week, but timing is a hard thing. I felt the rally coming, but thought it would be later this week, now I’m not sure. I could have been off by a few days. I do think the G7 meeting will be helpful in keeping the markets positive this week, but again, I can’t be sure of exactly what days will be great, only a general time frame in terms of weeks. I’m not getting a bad feeling about tomorrow or this week so far, but thinking about the next couple of weeks is making me feel nauseous. It’s like a roller coaster ride.
This is why I didn’t want to answer anymore stock market questions because it’s so erratic right now. Tapping into its energy is like reading a naked schizophrenic running down a highway with his hair on fire. There’s too much stuff to sort out, and so many different factors colliding at once that literally every day is like a quantum physics experiment. People’s emotions are effecting this as much as real factors, and right now we are all so high on adrenaline, fear and panic one minute and then lulled into somnolence the next, that we are like that schizophrenic running down the highway with his hair on fire that I mentioned earlier. I believe that once the election is over, it will be a lot easier to read. This is one of the quantum factors muddying the waters right now.
If I get any clear information through this storm, I will post it. But I’m going to try to lay low on this until I do get something hitting me over the head.
I do know we are going to see some wild fluctuations for awhile, so don’t be lulled into a sense of safety just yet. Not to say anyone should freak out, but this election is really the choice between two very different paths. Obama really does represent hope and the future. McCain represents fear and clinging to the past. It’s our choice to make. And with Pluto being a karmic planet, it’s essential we choose to walk away from fear, prejudice, greed and hatred or we will suffer very dire consequences.
Make sure to vote! Don’t take anything for granted. We are living in very strange erratic times!
Best wishes and good luck.
