Germany is asking the EU to impose counter-sanctions against the US, for imposing sanctions against Russia. Stupid Congress forced President Trump to sign an increased sanctions bill into law that even has our allies turning their backs against us. Germany claims that the increased sanctions against Russia by Congress are actually illegal according to International law. Doesn't Germany know? The US Congress is above the law because their the law makers (insider trading in Congress is apparently legal). Way to go Congressional idiots. You're turning even our allies against us.

Knowing when to trade is just as important as knowing what to trade. Don't force a trade. If a trade isn't there, it isn't there. You forcing a trade is likely to result in a losing trade. Sometimes the best trade is no trade.
I wanted to spend some time slowing down and going back to review the price action of the US dollar on July 26, 2017 after the Federal Reserve announcement.

Congress is not representing the American people and is completely out of control right now. I demand that my government leave Russia alone. What ever happened to "America First" and working on improving relations with Russia?
This stock could have an explosive move higher as signaled by the rapidly rising large players volume while the price has pulled back over the last few days. This stock may be a good way to play the rise of chips inside computer assisted driving technology and even autonomous driving vehicles. Warning: the fundamentals of this company are fairly poor which is why the stock is so cheap. I would classify this stock as a mad-money play and done only with money you can afford to lose.
