War in Iraq and Coins

      As of this writing, war has not started;  by the time you receive this, it might well be underway.  War is scary and unpredictable. A quick US victory is likely, but nothing is certain.  Expect a temporary slowdown as people choose television coverage of war over everything else - at least for a few days. Investors are sitting on the sidelines waiting to see what happens.  Ironically, even after Iraq is resolved, investors may find little attractive in stocks or bonds.  Coins however, should continue strong, and any political uncertainty will only strengthen the coin market.  Furthermore, investor disappointment at lack of opportunity after Iraq settles down could well push investors toward coins. In the unlikely event something really bad happens, it would be disastrous for stocks and bonds. Even coins might be hurt, but would likely at least hold value.  Think positive.
