Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

NOTE>>  The normal 10:40 update will be delayed some this morning. Something happened to one of my teeth last evening and I have an emergency dentist appointment at 10.  I don't know if I cracked it or what, but...man is it rappin. I have no choice but get this fixed quick.

Good morning everyone, welcome to the day. 

Yesterday the market didn't do its magic late day levitation, instead it continued to fade off.  When the final bell rang, we were down 76 DOW points and 8 on the S&P.  In the big picture, losing 76 points in a 20K market is a statistical rounding error. It means nothing.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. Considering that on Saturday the AVERAGE temperature for the United States was..... 11 degrees, I'd think it safe to assume a lot of you spent the week indoors. Well, don't think you were alone! For the first time in 2 months we had a series of Thunder Boomers and drenching rains on Saturday morning, and then Saturday night the temps plunged for us too. I woke up at 6 am Sunday to just 34 degrees. That's almost record breaking stuff for Sarasota Florida

Good morning folks, I hope the day dawns bright for you all.  We've made it to Friday, and not a day too soon!

So yesterday they allowed a pause day. I continue to call it just a pause, since at one point the DOW was off 128 points and they could have easily turned that into 200 points and really got a sell off brewing. But instead they came in and saved the day for the most part. So this morning the futures were flattish, with a "pink" tone as we approached the release of the non farm payroll reports

Good morning all, I hope the day finds you well....

They closed out yesterday with a pretty good showing. However like the day before it, there was a time or two where the DOW wasn't far away from going red. That shows us that as much as they're still deploying new money in areas, there are people heading for the exits. It will be interesting to see who wins in the longer term.

Morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Well, did you see it? The once very common late day magic levitation has returned! Yesterday the market was bouncing around at the low end of its range, mostly between say DOW + 40 and DOW + 65 points. Then exactly at 3:30 it hit. From 3:30 right into the close, everything just magically went higher.  The S&P gained a full 10 points in just 30 minutes. The DOW was pushing 70.  What was that all about?

Good morning folks, welcome to 2017.  I figure it will be sometime in maybe February before I stop writing 2016 on things.

Good morning all, welcome to the last trading day of the year. 

If you've been watching the media, you know that Obama has put sanctions in place against Russia. They are kicking out some 35 Russian diplomats, and closing down two Russian "compounds" here in the states.  This is supposedly in retaliation to the Russian Hacking that they say they can prove.

NOTE>  If you go to Investyourself.com you might see a warning that the security certificate has expired or isn't yet valid, and that you probably shouldn't continue to use the site.  There's NO  attempt to "fool you" or do anything silly.  Our SSL certificate was scheduled to expire on the 28th. So back on Friday, I went through the steps to renew it. Well, I guess because of the Holiday, it still hasn't been renewed, however they were QUITE fast to charge my credit card. 

Another NOTE>>> we do NOT store any credit card info on our site. None. Nada. Zip.  When someone signs up for the Insiders club, the form you fill out is actually hosted by Authorize.net, the biggest card processor in the world. We implemented that 15 years ago, because I never ever wanted  the problem of getting hacked and being responsible for people's cards being compromised. No thanks.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Wednesday.  

Yesterday was a low volume session, where the indexes hovered around the unchanged line for most of the day. While they did manage to tack on 11 DOW points and 5 S&P's, it was a tough session to endure. We only beat Friday's volume by a few million shares, making it one of the lowest volume days of the year.
