Mornin all, welcome to Tuesday.  

Yesterday was a snoozer for sure, as the volumes were low and the market hovered in a fairly tight range all day. But from just about every angle it looked more like a pause, than a sell off. No one wanted to push it much higher, but no one was running for the door either.

Hello everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a long and wonderful weekend. After enjoying the Thanksgiving Holiday, the wife and I did some fun "poking around" the west coast of Florida, taking in the scenery. Florida is indeed a beautiful state if you like the water. There's so many miles of mangroves and islands, and rivers and bays. It's really gorgeous. Oh and speaking of gorgeous, right now we are experiencing exactly why so many people come here for the winter. Yesterday we did our bike ride and it was bright sunny, not a cloud in the sky, 79ish... just perfect.  Cooler nights and perfect days is what put the west coast of Florida on the map from Nov - March

Good morning all, welcome back from Thanksgiving. I hope you all had a tremendous day of family bonding and enjoying your friends. I know we certainly did and I probably don't need to eat again for a month. Sometimes you even get a little "extra" reason to say thanks. That happened to me on Thanksgiving. I was talking to our closest friends back up north who are coming down to visit us in December.  The reality was that I hadn't talked to them for about 2, maybe 3 weeks and I was eager to catch up. Well boy, what a catch up that was.

Good morning everyone, welcome to the eve of Thanksgiving.  While everyone has their favorite Holiday, Thanksgiving has always been mine. Yes Christmas is wonderful, as the meaning of the season is so important. But in Thanksgiving we get one thing that can resonate with everyone regardless of race, creed, color, etc.  That thing is... the reminder that every single one of us has something to be thankful for. Many of us are blessed in ways we don't even understand simply because we live in the US, and don't have to endure the squalor that so many billions contend with.

Mornin' all, welcome to a new day. If you're doing a frozen turkey for Thursday, this morning is the time to get that puppy out of the freezer and into the fridge!  If you're doing fresh, it's already  "ready to go".   ( I only mention this, because a couple years back, I forgot to pull the silly bird out of the freezer until Wednesday and sure enough it was still rock hard in the middle. So of course I was reprimanded and sent to the store to secure a fresh bird. But that's okay, I wanted a fresh one anyway, we were only doing the frozen one because it was given to us for doing some fund raising for a charity)

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend!  As always, I hope it was a good one for you all. Down here in sunny Florida, we had our first blast of "cold" come through.  Last evening the wife and I were in a waterfront restaurant and you could feel the chill sweeping across the water. By the time we got home it was only 52.  When I got up this am, the thermometer read.....drum roll.... 39.   That's pretty darned chilly for us!    But looking at the weather maps for a wide swath of the nation, we're in great shape down here.  Up in New York and PA, friends of mine were posting photo's of 4, 5, 7 inches of snow.  It's undenyable... winter is here.

Good morning folks, we've made it to Friday.  Can you believe that in just 6 more days, it's Thanksgiving? Maybe it's just me, but where did this year go? I find it amazing that 80% of this year is gone already. 

Okay, so here we are. There's still so much pulling and pushing going on, that it's still somewhat hard to figure how things move forward from here. In the same week that stocks moved higher once again, with tons of new 52 week highs, we find that billions of dollars once again left equity funds.  Our Fed's are on course to announce a rate hike early next month, but over in Europe, Draghi has said that Europe needs QE for "years to come".

Good morning all, it's good to see you all......

The initial insane surge higher in the markets has cooled off a bit.  But in a technical sense, things are still favoring the bulls. Yet you all know the deal, charts don't tell you where things are going, they show you where they were and where they are now. Things can obviously change.

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday. 

One week ago today, half of the world woke up to a Donald Trump victory. Since that time, the world has changed in ways many couldn't imagine. The stock market, which was supposed to crash according to Mark Cuban, put on a run up not seen in a decade. One 2 hour phone call between Trump and Vlad Putin has cut the Defcon level from 3, ordering on moving to 2....back to the safest level there is.... 5.  Cities are experiencing riots and violence, but not from the so called "right wing extremists" but the left itself, the people that claim to be "tolerant".  There's been hundreds of calls to assassinate Trump, and the CEO of a major company has had to resign because he tweeted out that HE would personally do the deed.

Hello everyone, welcome to another day!

I don't know about you, but I'm having a ball watching truly "good" things taking place and it's only been a week since the election. Trump isn't even in the White House yet, and He's already eased tensions with Russia more in a few days, than I could have hoped.

However, as much as I'm excited to think that we're finally going to get on the right track, the push back is even worse than I imagined. I said on Election night that "this isn't over" and that's been an understatement. Soros is still massing protests and riots. The Media is still just as ugly as they were ahead of the election. How sad.
