Howdy....

I had to do a double take. I stumbled out of bed this am, and as I usually do on the way to the bathroom, flicked on my monitor.  I thought I had seen the futures down 80?  Nah, I must just be imagining things.

6.14.2017 - The Fed's hiked rates today. Bookmark

 Yes  the FOMC hiked rates today. Does it matter? What's the ramifications? Why have so many big name investors been screaming about a market crash coming? Is the Fed going to hike us into recession? Are we really in a recession, but they've papered it over? We chat about all of this in today's free newsletter. Take a few minutes to peruse it and see what you think.

Chicken Little
 
The story of Henny Penny, also called Chicken Little, or sometimes Chicken-licken (not to be confused with “Finger-licken” from Kentucky Fried Chicken), the terrified little chicken convinced that the sky is falling and that life as we, or at least as chickens know it, is over... is so common that “the sky is falling!” and “Chicken Little” and related names have become bywords for fearmongering, and the often tragic results that occur.

Gooooood morning everyone, welcome to rate hike day. 

First off if you haven't heard, there's been some events overnight and this am.  In Washington, some Congressmen were meeting on a field to practice for tomorrow's Congressional baseball game and someone with a rifle started taking pot shots. The House Majority whip was struck, as was some other people. Obviously this is horrible news.

Hello all, welcome to a new day....

Yesterday spent most of its time trying to decide what it wanted to do. Should the techs fall more, or should they bounce? Should the overall market begin a true correction or should it simply push higher?  By the time the last hour rolled around, it felt pretty clear that they were getting braver and willing to nibble on things. When the session was over, the DOW wasn't down 70+, it was down 36. The S&P which had been down 11 at times... was down 2.  The NASDAQ, which was looking pretty lousy all morning, bounced nicely.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a great one for you. 

6.10.2017 - It Just Won't Stop Bookmark

On Election night I was at the Republican party at a local hotel with the Sarasota politicians. That night when Trump won, I mentioned to several around me that "this isn't over, they won't let this die" and boy was I right. It's 8 months later, and what do you see each day on TV?  Trump this, and Comey that. Impeachment noise, endless investigations, Russians and you name it. 

 

Along with all that, there's the stuff under the surface. Who killed Seth Rich? Who killed the other 5 people that were close to the Hillary team and DNC?  Who's the Awan brothers and why did they have the contract for IT services?  This is an onion with many many layers and the Deep state is shook up. 

 

Then of course we talk about the market, and the mini crash that hit Friday where Amazon fell 80 points in seconds, which kicked the algo-bots to sell off NFLX and AAPL and PCLN, and other high fliers.  Was that really an accidental "fat finger" or was that the warning shot that the techs are ready to pull down and they rotate into dividend stocks?  Time will tell, but it's fun to ponderr.

Off the Rails
 
It’s been quite a while since I left the reservation and did a talk about “conspiracy” stuff, and today I’d like to go there for a change.  
 
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware that since the Election of Donald Trump, there’s been nothing in the news OTHER than Trump, Russia, hacking, leaks, Comey, Wikileaks, Emails, etc. etc.  It never stops, and one of the most prescient forecasts I ever made was Election night when I said to everyone “this isn’t over”  I didn’t know how right I was.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. Oh wait...it's another Friday!  They just keep on rolling in. 

So, how do we explain yesterday?  Well, the ECB did what I figured they'd do, they announced that the billions are coming for months on end, and while they didn't mention it in the press statement, Draghi himself said that if there was any worry about growth they'd increase the QE again. That was music to the market's ear.
