Long Term Holds
 
Quite often we seem to get “accused” of playing only very short term trades, and ignoring the longer term holds. To a certain extent that’s true. Not because we have anything against long term holds, in fact we have several of them in place as we speak. No, the reason we haven’t been focusing on longer term holds lately, is precisely what we saw happen in February.
 
The “correction” that hit in February was the single fastest drop of 10% the market’s really ever seen, and it was obscenely overdue. If you look back at the history of the DOW, what you often see is that somewhere between 8,9, or 10 years into a rising market, it changes direction. Sometimes it’s a simple correction, and sometimes it’s a crash.

Hello everyone, welcome to yet another Friday. 

Another wild day of big dips and big recoveries.  I had a hunch we'd see that, as this is what I said at the 1:15pm update yesterday:

So, we're supposed to get the Presidents declaration on tariff's this afternoon. I imagine that as they leak info, we'll see some more pops and drops. But I also think that the tariff situation will not be as ugly as many think and that they'll end up liking the final product

Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

And what does this new day bring us? Good question. When I first looked at 6 am, the futures were flat and mixed. The DOW was off about 20 and the S&P was up 1. But as the morning progressed, the futures started climbing and by 7:40 we had the DOW up 50, and the S&P up 8.

Good morning all, and what a wild morning it portends to be. 

The futures were up smartly overnight, but then they got "silly" high for a while. The reason? Well in what can only be called a diplomatic victory, Kim Jung Un of North Korea fame has formally hinted that he'd be okay denuclearizing if his regime was allowed to remain stable.  Kim also held out an olive branch to South Korea, suggesting that they should work hard to reunify the peninsula, and attain peace.

Good morning all, welcome back from what I hope was a tremendous weekend for yourselves. I know my friends up in the Northeast got walloped with some nasty weather late last week, and if you're one of those that got hit, I hope it all went okay. Down here in Florida, this weekend is the reason that so many tens of thousands continue to move here. After 13 days of near record breaking high temps, things got "wonderful".

Good morning everyone, it's Friday already. I swear I don't understand how that can happen.  These weeks just roll by like a shot. 

Anyway, I'm sure you all know the deal about yesterday. The market was a bit nervous over Powell and his talk to the Senate and he didn't disappoint them. Saying point blank that the US is on an unsustainable fiscal path, he laid out his views. But the market was "okay" with it. Yeah, we were down a bit, call it red by 70. But it looked as if the minute he was going to finish up, they were going to pile in.

Hello everyone, welcome to another day of "What the heck's going on?" 

2.28.2018 - The Gun Ban Push in Full Press Bookmark

They needed a big event and they got one. They came up with a really diabolical plan and I have to give them credit for it. Use the brainwashed children to plead to the politicians to ban guns. It's hard for any politician to stand up to school children that are asking them if they'd take "blood money" from the NRA. 

 

Today's general commentary is about the full court press attack on gun owners. This is the biggest and best planned one I've seen in my 40 years of monitoring this stuff.  They're going "all in" on this one. If you're a gun owner, you'd best be following along closely here, this is big. 

 

In the market section, we discuss the wicked chop the market's been in, and the 300 and 400 point swings it's doing. Generally chop like that tends to portray a market willing to change direction. Since it's been going up for 9 years, is this signalling a top? We talk about that. 

 

Give it a read, it's good stuff.

Here’s My Issue
 
Yeah, this is about guns again. If you’re an “anti” gun person then I’m sure what you’re seeing with these companies distancing themselves from the NRA is probably making you quite happy. I’m sure that seeing Dicks Sporting announcing that they’re no longer selling “assault” rifles is tickling you. But I do think you’re missing the bigger point here.

Mornin' all. 

Yesterday was simply weird. No matter how I slice it, it was just a strange day.
