The ultimate risk off trigger … U.S. sends missile defense to Guam!
Illustration 1: Continental U.S. land based missile defense system cannot cover Guam
You have all been warned by Asianmacro from all my post in the past 2 weeks to prepare for a down leg in risks. The final trigger can be the news that U.S. will send a missile defense to Guam as it is currently undefended and out-of-range of continental U.S. land based missile defense systems. You can also refer to the U.S. Department of Defense on their Ballistic Missile Defense Report in 2010 for more details. http://www.defense.gov/bmdr/docs/BMDR%20as%20of%2026JAN10%200630_for%20web.pdf
Let’s make some good money if you have prepared well!
