Bank Holiday Memorial Day Weekend ~ Saturday, May 26th - Monday, May 28th
Note: My Dream ~ imo, (speculation) we could have a window of opportunity beginning this week. We know that the 5+1 Meeting on Wednesday will provide Iraq with Tight Security .. link ..*Iraq 5+1 Meeting Wednesday, May 23rd ~ Curfew and 15 thousand security element and the band "Swat" and 15 helicopters to protect the 5 +1 .. and .. we have a long weekend coming up with a bank holiday on May 28th. I still believe that Iraq will RV first and then, soon after, other countries will follow. This would allow for the currency swaps (which have been ongoing) to take effect .. giving foreign currency reserves of all countries a boost .. And then .. we could see a rebalancing of the global economy. That's my dream .. and i'm sticking to it ..:) Kel ...

Memorial Day is observed on the last Monday of May. It was formally known as Decoration Day and commemorates all men and women, who have died in military service for the United States. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials on Memorial Day and it is traditionally seen as the start of the summer season.
Memorial Day started as an event to honor Union soldiers, who had died during the American Civil War. It was inspired by the way people in the Southern states honored their dead. After World War I, it was extended to include all men and women, who died in any war or military action.
Memorial Day was originally known as Decoration Day. The current name for this day did not come into use until after World War II. Decoration Day and then Memorial Day used to be held on May 30, regardless of the day of the week, on which it fell. In 1968, the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed as part of a move to use federal holidays to create three-day weekends. This meant that that, from 1971, Memorial Day holiday has been officially observed on the last Monday in May. However, it took a longer period for all American states to recognize the new date
