Predictions for 2018

Among new year's predictions, this one seems quite possible, if not likely:
On the domestic political front, the Mueller investigation will keep taking on water as it becomes clear that the real issue is not Russian meddling in the presidential election, but FBI meddling in the election. Trump may even appoint a new special prosecutor to dig into the FBI, Uranium One and the DOJ shenanigans. This will begin to spill into the midterms, as the Republicans figure out that this is a chance for them to blunt Democrat gains. 
 From another source, here's a set up for a potential 2018 scenario:
Manipulation of the markets by the Fed and its water-carrying Too Big To Fail partners have deprived the markets of their chief function: price discovery, the ability to discern what things are really worth. Markets are therefore functionally useless and their uselessness is a giant hazard. No society that depends on money can work for long if nobody knows the true value of things, including the value of money itself. 
And one more, for the sake of covering all the bases:
So what will happen in 2018? Well, it will either be terrible, or great, or kind of both. You can take that to the bank.
Stay informed, stay on guard my friends.

2018 has potential to be like no other year in our lifetime.

Or it may be mostly another year of can-kicking, as we put off the re-set until yet some other year farther forward.
