Morning all....

I crawled out of the sack at 5:30. By the time I grabbed some coffee and flipped on a monitor, it was maybe 6:00.  The futures were red with the DOW off about 95. Hmm, what's that about?  As the morning progressed the futures got worse. By 7:15, we had the DOW off 150 and the S&P off 18

For two years now I've predicted that the IMF would accept China into their SDR basket of currencies, and today we just learned that indeed they have. Bravo!  So what's that about? The IMF uses a reserve basket of currencies made up of the Pound, the Euro, the Dollar and the Yen. China believes it should be in that basket since it is the second biggest economy now. So today it became official and they're "in".  You should read our Newsletters or join the Insiders Club to see what all that will mean.

Hello everyone, welcome to yet another day in a very strange world.

Whether you want to talk about morality, economy, military, race, politics, etc...it is pretty evident that all manner of hell is breaking loose.  I have no idea what happened with the race situation at Missouri, but I know that all it took for protesters to get their way was to threaten "football" and "boom" action was taken. College football is simply big business and if the players say there's a race problem, you can bet they'll be appeased.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. Lets see if we can figure it out....

Yesterday finally followed the plot. We felt that a pause day was in order to at minimum "digest" the gains they'd racked up over the past two weeks. So when the final bell rang, we had just that, a low volume "go nowhere" day.

As if yesterday wasn't "in your face" enough, as we gained 300+ points; after the bell the big 'old techs" MSFT, AMZN and GOOG all beat the estimates. That pushed the averages even higher after hours. But we're not talking just " little higher", I saw AMZN up 60+ dollars per share shortly after their release.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday morning.

The big anticipation last night was that everyone's eyes were on China. After being closed for 7 days for Holiday, the wonder was...would they open big and join the global rally party, or would they be the Debbie Downers and be weak. Well what really happened was sort of "meh".  They were down, they were up.... they didn't do much of anything. But because they didn't outright crash, everyone was figuring that they'd see big fat green futures this morning. Well....that didn't happen either. Although they are well off the morning lows, at 8 am we have the DOW futures off 56 and the S&P down 6.  That's a big improvement over 6am when I saw DOW - 78 and S&P down 9.

Morning all, welcome back from your weekend. Once again the "not so sunny" Florida rains kept us from our weekend bike and beach fun, as we continue to have the wettest weather anyone here can ever remember. But, we salvaged the weekend anyway and made it productive. I hope you did too. ( by the way, the eclipse last night was pretty fun to watch... we had some clouds, but overall we could witness it. I hope you did too)

You’ve Been Double Crossed

 

We face a dichotomy. It certainly doesn’t get much press and frankly most people never put two and two together, but I believe it is something we need to at least give some thought to.

 

We know the Central Banks of the world have inflated bubbles of enormous size in both bonds and assets, especially equities. Why have they done that? Well the common thinking is that they’ve done that to ward off economic disasters and keep economies moving higher.  Okay, let’s go with that for a minute.

Well, you all saw that "disaster" yesterday. The Fed's, always looking for something to blame the ills of our economy on, punted on doing a rate hike and used the excuse of "China" possibly affecting the global economy.

8.24.2015 - The Crash Bookmark

For weeks we've been talking about something wicked coming this fall. There's approximately 20 different "things" that are aligning for the September time frame that we figured could really rock the markets. Well, they didn't wait.  They didn't wait to see what would happen when the UN holds it's meetings or when the Pope visits the White house. They didn't wait for the end of the "Shemitah" and the craziness that often coincides with that. No, they looked at China and the currency wars going on and decided to bail out.

Our opinion is that the market has set a "top" back in May and we're embarking on a long term bear market. Yes there's going to be wicked bounces, yes there will be money to be made trading long and short. But the "long term holds" idea is dead in the water now. We've had 6 years of up, we went too far, and now it's time for some payback. Be careful out there folks.
