Thanks Sauncy. I think we all hope that Congress will come to its senses, make the deals it needs to make, and put this behind us soon.

Brief govt shutdown is one thing; govt defaulting on its debt is another.

Fixed income investors certainly need to be wary of what might happen with interest rates and a dollar crash.

It remain important to keep an eye on things, and act quickly if the markets turn against you.

We hope no action becomes necessary, but sadly if panic sets in disaster could follow.

And realize that this will probably keep happening at regular intervals until next election. The dice were cast at the last election. Voters asked for more of the same. And each time becomes more dire and more threatening.
