ummm, no, that is NOT a fact...its how market psychology works...europe is in freefall and the US just elected a very left wing anti business ideological president who proved for 4 yrs that he does not feel he has to reach out to anyone to make deals...he thinks if he just makes nice speeches, everyone will simply say, yes we can!

Antonius: You have got to get out of that Republican bubble man. If you think President Obama is left wing, you might benefit from getting out a little more often.
