NOTE>>> Tomorrow there's only going to be one update... the premarket update.  I promised the wife I'd go with her on a business trip, and we leave at about 9:30.  I just wanted to get that out of the way so I don't forget. 

6.21.2017 - It's Hurricane Time Bookmark

Hey Folks, 

 

Yes it's now June and we've already had 3 named storms. The Hurricane center says we can expect 2 to 4 major hurricanes to make landfall this season. So today's commentary is about being prepared for that. Things you can do now, things you can do when it's just a few days away and things to help you get through it if you stay in your home. 

 

The market commentary is about the spike to new highs we had on Monday and the fade back down we got on Tuesday and Wednesday. Does that mean we've topped or are they going to jam us higher again and we see new highs? We chat about that in this issue.

It Has Begun
 
No Trump, no Syria, no Russians, no politics today. Today we take a break from that stuff and swing over to something very important...your safety.  So let me start by saying I’m writing this Tuesday afternoon, and there’s a storm brewing.
 
June starts “hurricane” season and it is starting off with a bang. Tropical storm warnings have been posted along the Louisiana coast for a developing system now in the Gulf of Mexico.
 
The system is labeled “Potential Tropical Cyclone Three” , which is a new designation from the National Hurricane Center for systems that have not developed yet, but that will likely bring tropical storm impacts soon.

Hi all....

Welcome to June 21, the summer Solstice!  Today if you live north of the Equator,  today will be the longest day of sunlight of the year.  Depending on how far north you live, the more light hours you get. Parts of Alaska will have sunlight for 20+ hours. 
So by all means, enjoy the day, it only happens once a year and unfortunately starting tomorrow night we'll start to contract our sunlight every day. Booo.

Hello all.... ready for more?

So it's a sleepy June weekend. Nothing big going on except for an escalation over in Syria.  We come into Monday and for "some" reason ( probably related to Friday's options expirations)  we put in a massive up day, gaining 145 DOW points, 20 S&P's, anjd 87 on the NASDAQ.  Tech rebounded from it's tiny sell off of the previous week, Financials got a bid, and the industrials continued higher. It was pretty amazing to watch.

Hi all, welcome back from the weekend. As always I hope it was a good one for you. Down here the weather change has really tossed a wrench in our agenda. They (the weather people) told us that Saturday would be a washout and Sunday was your best chance for "outside activity". So of course we planned mundane things for Saturday and it was bright and sunny all day.  Go figure. So Sunday, we attempted a bike ride. 

6.17.2017 - Civil War coming to a town near you! Bookmark

Civil War
 
If I asked you why a civil war might break out in this country, what would be your reason for it?  Probably the first thing that would come to your mind is the cleave, the divide, the absolute opposite poles of the more staunch “right” and the liberal “left” and I would have no issue with that.  But I think it’s much deeper than that, and I also think it’s being bred in places you might not have thought of.
 
You all know the deal. Some 66 year old mind numbed Bernie supporter leaves his wife in Illinois and camps out in his van for a couple months, right at the field that the Congress folks use to play their charity game. Then at one of the practices, he makes sure it’s the Republicans on the field and starts shooting them.   Everyone with a firing brain cell could see this coming. Some of us have even predicted it.

 

Yes today's Free investing newsletter starts with a commentary about what can only be described as a civil war brewing. However, it isn't simply a left versus right thing... it's completely and totally deeper than that. Take a few minutes to read this Sunday's letter, it's worth a ponder.

Good morning everyone and welcome to yet another Friday. The phenomenon of time "flying" is really becoming apparent to me, as just next week, we'll experience June 21, and the longest day of the year. How on earth has half of 2017 flown by? Didn't Trump just get elected like "  a few months ago?"   It sure feels that way, doesn't it?
