Basically this is your problem.... you don't get out....

You set up an AA, determine what funds etc. will be something that fits this AA and invest... you do some rebalancing if things get out of whack and that is it... you don't swing for the fence... you don't invest in the newest 'hot stock', (add any other phrase here)....

Now, if you have a testosterone account... sure, why not.... but I would not be doing this with my main investments...

Study is the answer. Thinking that Kim is trying an upgraded Duchy of Grand Fenwick ploy.

Kim Jong Un is a complete figurehead. I would suspect prince william has more authority than this little twirp. He had a western education and enjoys spending spare time with Dennis Rodman and the Harlem Globetrotters. There is 0 chance this guy is pressing any big red flashing buttons. zero. The military calls the shots in this situation.

While China may have been strange bedfellows with Kim Jong Il, they didn't have control over him. It would have been in NK's best interest to develop their own nuke capability to use it to threaten the West and get bribes (as well as for their own military might), and I doubt China could have done anything too overt to 'force' NK to abandon nuclear capabilities, since you can only push a self-obsessed neighboring dictator so far.

Besides - China isn't really an ally to the US, so having a regional nuclear state (with one hell of a military) on your 'side' is kind of a plus to China with the balance of power equation, even if NK is run by someone that may appear to be at times unstable.
