Stocks are getting hammered. Gold and the dollar are jumping, while oil is taking, a sure sign that investors are in panic mode once again.

Of course we never like to see anyone fail, but Trump is always a solid Schadenfreude candidate, and sometimes it’s just OK to laugh at the misfortune of others. You know, gallows humour.
