  • If the recent rally was predicated on the perception of reflation, will it take actual reflation (or validation on the fundamental front) to leg this puppy higher?

  • If you employ a disciplined approach, can't we take that journey one step at a time and remove the guesswork?

  • And maybe, just maybe, enjoy the purpose of the journey that is the journey itself?


In memory of our fallen friend and trusted colleague, Bennet Sedacca, 100% of the donations made to the RP Foundation through April will be channeled to philanthropic endeavors consistent with the RP mission, working closely with the Sedacca clan in the distribution of those funds. We thank you kindly for your support as we strive to effect positive change in the lives of children.
