Good morning all, welcome to the last day of the week. Wow, these Friday's just keep rolling on through, don't they?  There's no question that time has sped up the older I get.

Howdy all, welcome to a new day. 

After seeing them respond a bit negatively to Facebook last evening, one might have thought that this morning the futures would be a bit pink. We had AAPL miss phone sales and FB say that portions of ad revenue's would sink in the future. That's not a great recipe for a higher market. But this morning when I flipped on the monitors, I saw the DOW futures up 50 and the S&P up 6. What's that all about?

Hello all, Happy Wednesday to you. 

NOTE>>> I have a Cisco "workstation" splitter that sends net to three different devices here in the office. Well, it's dying. Starting last night it would periodically just shut down, and I'd have to reboot it. It's happened 2X this am already. When it happens, my work computer and my trading computer go down.  I know I have another one somewhere in my boxes of electrical junk, and I'm going to try and find it  after the open.  I'm simply warning that I might be late with the second update.

Good morning all, happy Tuesday to you. 

What the heck was yesterday? While the NASDAQ continued it's run, the DOW and the S&P were having issues. Yes the DOW only closed red by 27 and yes the S&P actually stayed green by 4. But volume was punk, and overall it was a pretty sorry session.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I won't bore you to tears telling you of mine, but I will say thank you to all who wrote in to wish me a happy birthday!  I'll simply say that my wife set up what could only be called a perfect weekend for me, and we really had a wonderful time. I sort of wish it didn't have to end. Oh well, there's always next year...I hope!

Hi Folks, happy Friday.  

Yes we've made it to Friday, which is a good thing. Every week lately, tends to come with so much drama that I find myself looking forward to a break. Oh and what a break it will be, for me anyway.  Tomorrow's my birthday. As much as I've tried to fight it off, it had to happen and yes, I turn 60 tomorrow.  So, the wife has "surprised" me with a weekend away at a resort we like, and reservations at one of our favorite eateries.

Mornin' all, welcome to a new day. 

While I'm far from being a sports nut, I do enjoy watching NHL hockey during playoff season. Somehow I allowed myself to stay up and watch the second game of the evening, and before I knew it,, it was tomorrow.  Ouch!  So yeah, I'm a little bleary eyed this am.

Hello everyone...welcome to a new day. ( And what a strange day it could be....)

Yesterday they turned on the afterburners and put in a second 200 point day. Interestingly, the entire month of April didn't have one incident of back to back gains, and then Monday and Tuesday, we not only got back to back gains... they  were the two biggest up days since the Election almost 6 months ago.

NOTE>>>>>> 

Before we get rolling on the day's market activity I want to chat a bit about the mining stocks, the GDXJ, and the nightmare mess that's going on there.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a "ton-O-fun" for you all. Mine wasn't quite as wonderful as I was hoping. What I had in mind was a nice bike ride to the beach, then a good 2 mile stroll along the waters edge, followed by a great ride home. What I actually got however was "orders" to take down curtains, clean ceiling fans, etc.  Ha... !   Of course there were no orders, it was simply time for some spring cleaning. We have been so void of rain in Florida for the last 5 months that we're in a drought, fires are burning all over the state, and the dust is just ridiculous. 5 months of no rain makes for insane dust accumulation.
