10.4.2017 - The Vegas Shooting Bookmark

Today's free investing newsletter starts with a commentary about the Vegas shooting. While I do not know exactly what happened, I do know what didn't happen. Some 64 year old patsy didn't single -handedly injure 500 and kill 59 people. The video's disprove that theory, as does the sounds and even the direction the people were running. 

 

No, there's an agenda here and who's behind it is the question.  

 

Then of course we talk about the market's insatiable drive higher, a drive based on coordinated Central bank QE. How long will it go? What's the end game? What happens when it ends?  It's all good conversation.

The Shooting
 
First off, let me assure you that I do NOT know what happened in Vegas. But what I can tell you is what didn’t happen.  One guy in one room of the Mandalay Hotel, did not shoot down 60 people and injure 500 more.  Who did it and why is still a matter of speculation, but the official story simply doesn’t add up.

Good morning all.

If you're wondering "what the hell was yesterday all about" you weren't alone.  Art Cashin has been a staple on the exchanges for a long long time. This is his quote on a quick interview by CNBC

Hello everyone, welcome to a new week and a new month. Let's see if they push the market ever higher through October, as they have in September. 

9.30.2017 - I Forgot! Bookmark

 

Hi all, I just wanted to alert everyone that the newest free investing newsletter is now posted on the site. It appears like the last two letters we posted, I totally forgot to update the front page and let everyone know it was there and outline what they were about. Well, in today's commentary we're talking about human nature, and the concept of goodness. Then we talk about the market's insatiable drive higher, that is confounding so many people.

But over the past week, we've talked about such varied topics as "staying cool in a no power situation" and the evils of Ethanol gas. So by all means make sure you give the latest letters a read. I think that both of them will be real eye openers to a lot of people.

The Honest Mechanic

 (and other anomalies)

Today I’m not going to rail against the bankers. I’m not going to whine against the Fed, or call Wall street any dirty names. Nope, today I’m going to talk about something that seems to be missing from society lately. The concept of being a good person.

 

What brought this up? A few things, all bundled into a short period of time. First off, I learned quite late that a “friend” of ours had spent the hurricane and the next 16 days in the hospital. Suffering from an ulcer, he was overtaken with vomiting and actually tore his esophagus and collapsed a lung. He almost died.

Any time something like that strikes, it takes you by surprise and gives you that kick in the head to tell you “hey, slow down, remember your friends, say a kind word, etc.” 

 

But it was my trip to the mechanic’s this week, that really got me pondering just how much society has appeared to change. Quite often when the conversation tends to focus on the typical mechanic, it can get pretty harsh. I’ve heard them called rip-off artists, and all manner of criminal. How many times do you hear someone say that some mechanic did 300 dollars worth of work only to find out he really only replaced a 20 dollar part that took him 20 minutes?

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new day. Oh, and a Friday no less!

Yesterday they put in another low volume "up" day, and they weren't going to let anything take it away.  But then, it's easy to "create" an up day when the total volume of shares traded on the SPY is only 44 million.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Wasn't yesterday a hoot? Out of the gate big, pushing for new highs, and then all of a sudden the air came out and from up 80, we went red by 26. The details of the tax reform plan was being "leaked" and they didn't love it.  
But then Trump got on TV in a live interview, and he pushed it as the best thing since sliced bread. The market bought it hook, line and sinker.

Ethanol, the Problem
 
The other day I wrote a piece about dealing with the heat of Florida during a power outage, where the temp might be 94 degrees and the Humidity over 85%. I mentioned that a good gas generator, and a small window air conditioner can indeed get you through some rough nights.
