Hello everyone, it's jobs day. It's also Friday and that makes me happy!

Okay, yesterday was the ultimate in boredom.  Individual stocks did well if they had company specific news like earnings, but if not...you probably went nowhere fast.

Everything's Rigged, All of It
 
You all know that the major bankers have been hit with over 30 BILLION dollars worth of fines for rigging markets. They've rigged LIBOR, Gold, Silver, Forex, etc. This isn't speculation, this isn't a theory, this is simply the truth. You can look up the cases.

So the question is, if the banking institutions will collude with each other and rig the price of say LIBOR rates, or the daily quote on Silver, do you think it stops there? I argue "no way!".   From where I sit, I see manipulation and rigging every where I look.

Earlier today we got the oil inventory numbers. Now think back to your economics 101 class. What happens if supply is tight on something? The natural reaction is for prices to rise. Likewise, if supply is abundant, then it holds to reason that prices would fall. So, what did we see in the oil numbers? Let's take a look....

Good morning all, are we ready for another day? 

Yesterday they pulled off the late day "Ramp Capital" as they do so often. There was a particular level they needed to take the market to and just like magic, it happened. So, am I surprised that this morning the futures are green? Not even a little bit.

So, where do we go today? Good question. If their "pattern" continues, they'll probably try and inch us back up to the 2182 level. However, if we can't get through that... we'll probably be right back to testing 2175 again.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend.... and one that I hope you very much enjoyed. Here at our homestead, Saturday was fairly routine, capped off by a night of Free UFC fights courtesy of Fox. I've been a fan of the UFC since its beginning, mainly because way back in ancient history, your editor spent 3 evenings a week from the age of 11 - 18 studying martial arts. I don't speak of it much, since it was so very long ago, but yes, I hold a black belt in Judo and a second "dan" in jiu-jitsu. However, truth be told I haven't trained in it in over 30 years

Race Wars
 
We are a world awash in lies. It is so prevalent that 90% of our citizens have absolutely no idea of what’s real and what is not. How can I possibly say such a thing? Because I have spent the last 25 years of my life digging below the main stream news, and discovering the truth about things. Rarely if ever do they match up.

Hillary is the Democrats big hope for the White House. She, just like her psychopathic husband Bill have looked into the cameras and into your eyes and said “I did not have, receive or send classified Email from my private server.”   But Jim Comey, head of the FBI said just the opposite. He said she had 113 Classified Emails on her server, several of them of the utmost security level of top secret, and she was probably hacked. She lied. She’s a serial liar.

4.22.2016 - Earnings Disasters Bookmark

Earnings are coming out fast and furious, and for the most part they're horrid. Intel guided lower and announced they'll lay off 12,000 people. Google missed. MSFT was light. Caterpillar is an outright disaster. If you look at the "scorecard" the TV will tell you that 68% of the companies reporting have beaten their estimates. Yeah, right. Using "NON GAAP" adjusted accounting. If they simply used GAAP standards, only 44% have beaten. But worse...of the ones that are beating, 80% of them are doing it on lower revenues.

Less revenues folks. Take that as "sales". Should stocks rise as sales fall? Not in a real market, but in this central bank controlled mess, it's just business as usual.

Hello all, welcome to Thursday....

While the only economic data we're going to get today is the initial jobless claims, we do see two of the Talking head Fed members will be out speaking today.  I wish they'd all just shut up, because on one hand they tell us they want to be more transparent, yet it isn't transparent when they parade a handful of them around to suggest we're really close to a rate hike, and then Yellen double crosses everyone and basically says there's no rate hikes in the works.

That's not transparency, that's fraud.

Hey all, welcome to another day....

Yesterday I was mentioning the S&P level of 2020.  That was the level that I thought would tell us if we were going higher, or if we were about to see some fade. So, in the early going they actually got us to 2022 and it looked like I might have to rethink things. But as the day wore on some weakness crept in and when the day was over, we had lost 13 S&P  points, closing at 2003.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday and another episode of "how the world churns".

This morning we saw a textbook perfect, in your face example of what passes for our so called "recovery".  Knowing that the most important thing in the universe is keeping your stock price up, JNJ announced a 10 BILLION dollar stock buy back AHEAD of their earnings release. Can you imagine that? They wanted cushion the reaction to their earnings release by announcing a buy back ahead of their release.

Bear Hunting

I’ve made mention several times concerning the idea that this fall could bring some real strange market action.
