Good morning all. I guess today we'll see if I read the whole Thursday/Friday sell down wrong and it was just another in a long long string of "one day wonders" that just happened to stretch into two days.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday they pinned the market to the flat line all day. The start to the day didn't go as I figured it would, instead of a nice fat bounce higher, the first moves were to dump the market fairly sharply. But then they hit some technical supports and the robots kicked in. As the day wore on they pulled the market back up to flat. In fact, in a couple Instant messages to trader friends of mine, I laughed with them as I'd glance at the ticker and see "S&P change - -0.10" or "S&P change - + 0.30"

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a great weekend for you all. Mine wasn't all that glamorous. The wife was still up in NJ wrapping up her visit with her dad and brother, and I hung around down here, keeping an eye on my 90 year old mom and my son. But I did get some things accomplished that desperately needed doing, so that's a big plus.  Then late last night the wife flew back in, and while it was a late night getting home, we did fine.

Good morning all, we've made it to another one of those Friday things. Just in time if you ask me. 

Okay, so what about yesterday? I've been saying like a broken record that one day the market will go red and they won't buy the dip. Well the market went red yesterday and they didn't buy the dip. When it was all over we plunged 274 DOW points, and 38 S&P's. The NASDAQ wasn't immune either, it fell 123.  Noticeable was the volume on the SPY.  118 million shares traded.

Good morning all, welcome to Hump day. I have a bit of running around to do this morning, but overall I should be set up to do the updates as usual.

Hello everyone, welcome to a better day ( for me anyway)

Yesterday I was way out of the loop taking care of the sickly son, but from what I saw, I didn't miss much. A massive ramp out of the gate, and then a slight fade off to cruise into the close with a gain of 135 DOW points, and 24 S&P's. The big winner was the 83 on the NASDAQ. That's a lot.

NOTE>>>  There will be NO 10:40 update today, I will only be doing this one and the afternoon update.  read more to see why: 


Hello Everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a really good one for you. 

Ours was quite a mix of emotions. On the one good hand, my wife flew out Friday evening to spend a week with her dad and brother up in NJ. Since her mom passed two years back, she finds these yearly trips to spend time with her dad really important. I couldn't agree more. I hope they have a fantastic time.

Good morning all, we've made it to another Friday.  They just keep rolling on. This one is pretty special for my wife however, she's leaving today to fly back to NJ and spend a week with her dad. We lost her mom  way too young and her and her dad are really looking forward to getting together for a bit.  So it's a happy morning here.

Mornin' all, welcome to a new day.

Yesterday afternoon looked a lot like so many that have come before. Down and sloppy for most of the day, with a push towards the flat line in the final hour
