FVITF approaching $4 - Australian $ at Par w/US - Expect Volatile Day in Markets

 The eyes of the world are on the U.S. election today. I am going to vote, but I hesitate every time, because voting gives credibility to a bankrupt system which provides us with options selected for us by the insiders. We get to chose between Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dee, neither of which we would select given a better opportunity. Basically, I will be voting against the incumbents for the most part. I really hate having to vote for the lesser of two evils, but that is our choice. That's the American way without sound Christian statesmen in the races.

"How long O' Lord," will this abominable situation continue? We must urgently pray for a return to Biblical world and life view for all Christians, families, and churches.

The big news on currencies overnight were the rate hikes by India and Australia. Both were to contain the growing inflation. It is becoming apparent that the Asian economies are growing while the West and Japanese are not. Thus, we should expect more growth from Asia as we longingly look to that area of the world for growing world leadership. The Austrian Dollar is par to the U.S. for the first time.
