    #SignsOfTheEndTimes ~ Despite horrible PMI reports from across the globe – Japan, China, Germany, France, Italy, UK, USA – markets aren’t tanking.  In fact, some are up in celebration because they believe the economy will force central banks into more monetary “stimulus” which will feed the markets (if no one else).
