Key Macro: Yesterday Vice President Pence slams China in a powerful speech raising questions as to whether a trade deal can be reached, they have a phone call scheduled today to continue negotiations. Earnings continue to come in soft from Amazon, Ford, Caterpillar, Fedex, McDonalds and Texas Instruments. This helps central banks cut rates and expand the money supply with policy announcements coming Oct 31st and Dec 11th.

Now all we need is a small bounce on our TLT position and we’ll close October out with a healthy profit next week!
