Why does it matter?

  • Economic decisions & effects on the US market which has a correlation effect on most other markets including Malaysia


Sep 26 8:30pm ET First presidential debate


Key Points

  • Trump: US being used unfairly by other countries, portrayal of fear, bubble going to burst
  • Clinton: Plans for economy, ISIS, crime, etc.
  • Opinion: 1-0 for Hillary. While the bubbles are something to be watchful of, a climate of fear is not healthy. There’s a need to be rational, aware & plan.


Q: Who is the best person to go fishing with?

A: Take Clinton. She baits great!! 😛
