Budget Deal Reached

Washington leaders reach budget deal - MarketWatch

Asian stocks are rallying, Dow futures are up 179 points and gold futures are down 17.60 to 1613.70 an ounce.

Dare we dream that the deal will include some good news for savers?

This is all political theater. Anyone that doesn't think that this deal was planned in advance to be a done deal ahead of the opening of the Asian markets needs to have their head examined. All the participants in the deal have an interest in the markets surging Monday. What should you expect? The corruption is apparent. Good news for savers? Not!

The overall macro-economy picture is not pormising at all.  Like Scarlett said to Rhett: "Nothing you (Government/economy) do surprise me..."
