Re: Floor Talk, October 26, 2018
UN KNOWN destinations seems a bit of a fragile statement - only to be trumped by a cancellation notification - - -
Unknown ( a variable yet to be found - such as x,y,z ) Any place or fact about nothing is known - - -
Then - the word anonymous - which could mean , may - might, be tariff free ?
Lastly - the Dow & NYSE, S & P are definitely into a STRONG buy position compared to October 6 , 2018 -? -? - ?
