The hot weather is a great blessing, it's like being on holiday at home. The atmosphere is charged with a prana that is invigorating.
At the same time you hear that there are droughts in mid-west America, as well as late and not so generous Monsoons in India. Food prices are likely to move up, unless there may be some stockpiles lying somewhere to even out the requirements.
The shooting dead of the workers at the platinum mine in South Africa is a terrible event to associate with the price of platinum going up. If the workers there got better pay and conditions, maybe the higher price would justify itself in a good way. When the hard-working miners are treated fairly, their souls emit positive vibrations into the stratosphere, which in return will reciprocate positive feedback into planting and harvest and rainfall on Earth.
The DOW Jones Industrial Average has moved up, and tomorrow is going to be either a sideways day, where it may trade only a small range; or it may give up a little of the gain made today but end up on the week compared to last Friday the 10th. But, who knows, it may even be possessed by the bull spirit, charged as the Earth's prana atmosphere is at the moment, and add on another 100 points or so... Adding a few points for this week. Regardless, the market is at a healthy level, and will try for a higher level very soon, I believe. Let the trend be your friend.
Caveat, everyone trades at their own risk, of course.
