Good morning all, welcome back from the weekend. 

For all you fine people down along the Texas/LA coast, our hearts and prayers go out to you all. I know what you're going through, I've been through it and it isn't pleasant.  God Bless.

Statues of Hate?
 
With all the Madness going on across the country concerning the tearing down of Confederate statues, my goal for today was to show you that slavery was NOT, not even by a small margin, the reason behind the Civil war.

But maybe as luck might have it, there’s no sense in re-inventing the wheel, and Paul Craig Roberts did a pretty good article about that very topic recently. So I’m stealing it.  Some of the highlighted or bolded areas, I did. All Credit goes to Roberts:

Hello all, it's yet another Friday.  I don't know how they can appear so quickly, but indeed this one has already arrived. 

Yesterday, there was no bounce, but there wasn't any real washout either. When the final bell rang, we had the DOW off 28 and the S&P down 5.  I think they're all focused on Jackson Hole and all the big movers and shakers that are speaking there.

I wonder what happened?  

After the close yesterday, the after market trading saw the S&P continue to fall. The SPY, which trades as the proxy for the S&P was down another entire dollar per share from the close.  When after hours trading ended, the SPY was at the dead low of the day.

Good evening all, welcome to this edition of the free investment newsletter. Today we're talking about Norway and their enormous sovereign wealth fund, and the fact that they've been directed to increase their stock holdings to a whopping 70% of their holdings. 

Think about that for a minute. When you buy a stock, you're worried about the price, the "value" the P/E, etc. When these guys buy this is what they say, and I quote " We don’t have any views on whether the market is priced high or low, whether bonds and stocks are expensive or cheap,” he said in an interview after presenting second-quarter returns in Oslo on Tuesday.

 

Well there you have it. This guys going to be buying 275 million a day in stocks, and he couldn't care less if the stocks are overpriced or not. Unreal.  

 

Then in the market section, we talk about the "levels" we'd need to see to continue thinking we have more highs coming. We put out the specific numbers we're watching.  Give it a read, it's valuable stuff.

Norway did it,
 
I’ve been telling you all;  about the Central banks of the world buying up stocks and propping the markets up. Hell, the Swiss National Bank owns more Facebook than Zuckerburg does.  Well, on the heels of all that, we also have to consider the sovereign wealth funds that are also heavily into buying stocks.

Good morning all. I guess today we'll see if I read the whole Thursday/Friday sell down wrong and it was just another in a long long string of "one day wonders" that just happened to stretch into two days.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday they pinned the market to the flat line all day. The start to the day didn't go as I figured it would, instead of a nice fat bounce higher, the first moves were to dump the market fairly sharply. But then they hit some technical supports and the robots kicked in. As the day wore on they pulled the market back up to flat. In fact, in a couple Instant messages to trader friends of mine, I laughed with them as I'd glance at the ticker and see "S&P change - -0.10" or "S&P change - + 0.30"

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a great weekend for you all. Mine wasn't all that glamorous. The wife was still up in NJ wrapping up her visit with her dad and brother, and I hung around down here, keeping an eye on my 90 year old mom and my son. But I did get some things accomplished that desperately needed doing, so that's a big plus.  Then late last night the wife flew back in, and while it was a late night getting home, we did fine. 

8.19.2017 - Is this the End Times? Bookmark

For thousands of years, people have been predicting the end of times. Well, history shows that so far they've all been wrong. But when we look at the world today one has to wonder if indeed the Biblical end days are getting close. So in tonight's commentary, we discuss the censorship that Google, Youtube, twitter, etc is embarking on. We look at the elitist agenda's to "homogenize" the world, and think about what it all means. 

 

Then in the market commentary, we suggest that it looks like for the first time in many months, ( years) that maybe, just maybe we're setting up for our first meaningful pullback. The charts say so....what do the Central banks say? They're the ones in control.
