Monday started out sour with the news coming out of Ireland, but investors killed the market indigestion looking forward to the good news already coming in this week. News like Black Friday (especially online) sales showing consumers are making a better than last year merry holiday season. Plus, Cyber Monday is already trending to bring in a cool billion (yes, that is with a 'B', Billion). We will find out more on Thursday when retailers report November sales.
Onboard with this holiday spirit and also the reality of controlling what I can control. I cannot control what has manifested across the pond, but can seek out some good avenues of growth right here to invest.
