            [post_content] => The Dog Days are upon us, yet the animal ruling the roost is the bull. That is, if you are in the stock market and most of the metals. Not so much if you own U.S. dollars. With the world still upside down due to the pandemic, whole swaths of the economy are likely to change; that means rethinking portfolio allocations.

But you don’t need me to tell you about the new world, as we are all living in it. I do, however, have confidence that this time next year things will be mostly back to normal. We’ll still probably look at each other as if everyone has got a secret case of the cooties, which, by the way, is a real word in the dictionary. I had no idea.  But that, too, will pass with time.

In this month’s edition, we interview Jeanette Schwarz Young, options trader and educator extraordinaire. The feature article by a recent new member, John Letizia, looks at the FAANG stocks with a new spin. For most of them, the big gains have happened after hours, but that could be changing. He also introduces us to an index that tracks an expanded version of these stocks that we can actually chart.

Of course, we’ve got some Chapter meeting summaries from NY, Minnesota and Chicago, as we proceed with virtual-only meetings for the foreseeable future.  We've also got another first, as the Singapore and Hong Kong Chapters held a joint virtual meeting with three speakers and several attendee polls. Check this out and see that our Asia presence is alive, well and growing.

Membership news and a message from the President round it all out. Don't forget, pricing for the CMT exams increases on September 1, so register now to get the current (Standard) price.

The post-Labor Day period typically sees activity of all sorts pick up. When we add the Presidential election drawing near, these should be “interesting times” ahead. Stay safe.
