    Thanks for the mention! personally, I think the markets are just making a correction – the big dip should be in the second half of this year.

  2. Thanks so much for the mention MFIJ, I really appreciate it. Not certain if it’s a correction or not, but there is certainly more volatility going on. Could definitely be an interesting next few weeks/months.

  3. Thanks for the mention. As for the markets, they were still swinging around yesterday, too. We’ll see what this month brings in the second half.
