    Goldman Sachs is warning that the presidential election could see delayed results, and is therefore recommending that clients hedge their market bets through December in anticipation of heightened volatility through November. “Given the several-week delay in finalizing the results of the 2000 presidential election ... the elevated volumes of mail-in ballots used in recent primary elections, and potential for increased mail in ballots this November, we see heightened risk that election-related volatility could extend beyond Election Day,” Kostin said in a note to clients Tuesday night. Kostin said options market traders seem to believe the next president might not be...

    Democrat lawyer Daniel Goldman announced on Sunday he has tested positive for the coronavirus. Goldman tried and failed miserably to impeach President Trump while the coronavirus was spreading in China. Maybe Democrats shouldn’t have been wasting their time with a sham impeachment when they should have focused on the real issues? Goldman blamed President Trump for the virus! Figures.

    Despite contrary reporting from John Solomon and the New York Times, former United States Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified before the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on November 15, 2019 that a Ukrainian prosecutor recanted his previous statement that she had identified Ukrainians she did not want to see investigated and prosecuted. You can see her testimony here at 1:15:00 to 1:15:20 in the video. She did this under questioning from Democratic Counsel Daniel Goldman.

    Real Clear Investigations ^ | Oct. 30, 2019 | Paul Sperry
    For a town that leaks like a sieve, Washington has done an astonishingly effective job keeping from the American public the name of the anonymous “whistleblower" who triggered impeachment proceedings against President Trump — even though his identity is an open secret inside the Beltway. More than two months after the official filed his complaint, pretty much all that’s known publicly about him is that he is a CIA analyst who at one point was detailed to the White House and is now back working at the CIA. But the name of a government official fitting that description — Eric...

    Goldman Sachs (GS) on Tuesday launched its "most ambitious" recruiting campaign to attract its next generation of talent.

    There’s something odd about the explanation The New York Times offered for standing by a blockbuster report that former FBI Director James Comey characterized as “almost entirely wrong” in testimony before Congress Thursday. “Would it be fair to characterize that story as almost entirely wrong?” Republican Sen. Tom Cotton asked Comey during the hearing. “Yes,” Comey replied. And at another point in the hearing he said of the report, “in the main it was not true.” The paper of record reported Feb. 14 that U.S. intelligence officials had intercepted repeated communications between the Trump campaign and senior Russian intelligence officials...

Bad if lost. Consider w/ making policy on enviro, trade, defense, etc.”(continued)

    [txt on image] Trump: Considering Rewrite or Elimination of Dodd-Frank President Trump entertained the idea of breaking up big banks Monday, sending major Wall Street stocks lower. Trump suggested that he is considering reinstating some form of Glass-Steagall, the repealed law that for decades mandated a separation between commercial and investment banks. "There's some people that want to go back to the old system, right? So we're going to look at that," Trump said when asked about the policy by Bloomberg.

    For the dramatic impact of technology, and specifically trade automation from algo, quant and robotic trading  on today's capital markets, look no further than Goldman's cash equities trading floor at the firm's headquarters which, according to the MIT Tech Review, employed 600 traders its height back in 2000, buying and selling stocks for Goldman's institutional client clients. Today there are just two equity traders left. Complex trading algorithms, some with machine-learning capabilities, first replaced trades where the price of what’s being sold was easy to determine on the market, including the stocks traded by Goldman’s old 600.Call it the...

    Oil barrel prices could climb between US$7 and US$10 by the end of the first half of 2017, according to Goldman Sachs analysts. Yesterday, OPEC surprised nearly everyone and reached a deal to curtail oil production. And now, if all members of OPEC strictly comply with their new quotas, which are to be (and that’s a reasonable “if”) agreed upon at the November meeting of the organization, Goldman is predicting a sizable recovery for the price of a barrel of oil. For this scenario to take place, all other circumstances on oil markets must remain unchanged.

    Goldman Sachs has enacted a set of rules that bans the firm’s top employees from contributing to certain campaigns, including the Trump-Pence ticket. The rules kicked in Sept. 1 and will apply only to partners of the firm. The memo detailing the rule change was first reported by Politico. The firm says the rules were meant to remove any implication of so-called “pay to play.” Four years ago, the bank paid $12 million to settle charges that a former Boston-based banker had picked up bond underwriting business in the state while working for and contributing funds to the campaign of...

    A new attack ad put out by the Hillary Clinton campaign this week achieves the near-impossible, making Donald Trump look wronged and (almost) like a victim. More believably, it makes the Democrats look sleazy and disingenuous in comparison. The ad begins with a picture of a grinning Trump and the words, "In 2006, Donald Trump was hoping for a real estate crash." It was caused by the existence of a speculative bubble in the first place. And that bubble was inflated not by Donald Trump, but by the people who have at least in part bankrolled Hillary Clinton's career: namely,...
