Each week Felix and Oscar host a poker game. We listen in on current trading ideas in the few minutes before the game starts. They like to call this their 'Stock Exchange.' I am the only human present, and the only one using fundamental analysis. Their methods are excellent, as you will learn if you join us for a few weeks.

We should expect either a La Nina Winter or a Near La Nina Winter which means where it will be wet or dry and warm or cool is becoming fairly clear for CONUS and also for other parts of the World.
