Hello all, and welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday was simply a nothingburger. After an entire session of ups and downs, we ended the day with the DOW down 6, the S&P up 2. Yawn. Zzzzz. Yes there was some pockets here and there, like Amazon who was up because of their "prime day" and running huge sales for 30 hours. But overall it was a pretty boring session

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

Mine was fair to middlin. As you know I'm an MMA fan, and there was free fights on Friday night to watch, that's good. Then Saturday evening there was a pay per view MMA show with more free preliminaries. That was good too. The issue came up on Sunday however, as after church the wife and "thought" we were going biking to the beach. HA!  At 12:30 we started hearing rumbles and sure enough by 1 pm, it was raining sideways and lightening was flying.

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.

Hello all, welcome to Tuesday.  

I almost welcome random days of the week now. Every day that I get up and there's no reports of mushroom clouds anywhere on the globe, I figure we're off to a good start.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. As I always do I hope that yours was wonderful. We had a lot going on this weekend, and for the first time in many months, we didn't get in any bike rides or long walks. Booo. We really enjoy our times outdoors, but it just wasn't to be this weekend.

Hello all, welcome to another day of "as the market churns" 

We figured that the market would hug the flatline yesterday and it did just that. After a rocky open, we moved back up to the flat line and wobbled around it all day. When it was over, the DOW had lost 6, the S&P gained 4. But that's a tiny bit misleading because of the way the DOW is weighted. The fall in NKE was worth 28 red points. So as you can see, if NKE didn't whiff on earnings, the DOW would have been green too

3.15.2017 - Rate Hike Day! Bookmark

Yes folks today was the day we've been waiting on for a week. Today was the day Janet Yellen and her band of cronies at the "oh so criminal" Federal Reserve were going to meet and discuss their views on interest rates. Our view was that yes, absolutely she was going to hike rates and at 2 pm. we got that hike. 

 

In our last free investing newsletter, we said that we felt that the market would probably reward a rate hike. In all reality, for decades the idea of rising rates was a negative to the market. But today the narrative on negatives has changed. When Brexit was coming they told us the markets would crash. Instead it lit the fire of an all time high rally. When Trump got elected they said the market would crash. We ran to all time highs. So we figured that the market would reward this hike. They did, the DOW gained 112 and the S&P about 19. 

 

However... something wicked this way comes. The commentary section of the free investing newsletter speaks about the global debts that cannot be paid. The problems we face. We are in way over our head, with debt to Gross National product at over 14 to 1. This has never been seen in history and I assure you...debts that cannot be paid...will not be paid.  It's worth a ponder.
