Kimchi

 

Today’s commentary is going to be way way off the normal path. Why? Over the weekend, I got to swapping some recipes with some friends of ours. Then it dawned on me that in 25 years of putting out commentary on just about every topic imaginable, I’ve never put a recipe out.  Or, if I have it’s been so long ago I forgot I did.

 

Anyway, while desperate for the recipe to our friend Karen’s incredible Osso buco recipe, which she sent over Sunday, she asked for one in return. One I didn’t think she’d ever be interested in, caught me off guard. She wrote “Bob, do you know anyone that makes Kimchi?”  Bingo. Yes I do.

Good morning all, welcome to hump day. 

I wasn't able to watch the action yesterday as I was tied up with medical all day. But last evening when I got to looking around, I was a bit surprised at some things. For instance, the market ended the day green, which wasn't surprising, but I was sort of caught off guard by being stopped out of ADSK.  With earnings coming up and the market trudging higher, I thought that might be a safe call. But instead, after opening well and spiking to almost 120 in the first few minutes, it faded off and I stopped out at 118.50. Granted I had a tight leash on it, but I wouldn't have expected a red day.

Morning all, welcome to the never ending rally. Yesterday they couldn't get much in gear for the morning session, but then as the day wore on, they came piling in. We ended the day with the DOW up 84, the S&P up 4 and up 18 with the NASDAQ.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a really good one for you all. My wife had a fun day Saturday, as she wanted to get a new dress for the wedding she's going to in NJ. Her niece is getting married in November and she spent the day finding just the right dress and accessories. 

10.14.2017 - Vapers Have Joy! Bookmark

Today's free investing newsletter is posted and we start the general commentary with great news for all the people that employ E-Cigs. The draconian rules concerning having product applications into the FDA has been pushed from 2018 to 2022. So you can read about the evolution of that. 

 

In the market commentary we are talking about the possible market reaction to Trump changing policy about Iran, and the idea that the market might get a bit nervous if Iran pushes back. Give it a read, it's a good issue.

The Vape Wars
 
Love them or hate them, “Vaping” or the use of Electronic cigarettes is on the rise. You can see them everywhere.  Well like a lot of things, I have a big opinion on E-cig’s because I am a user. So let’s talk history.
 
The electronic cigarette was invented in 2009 by a pharmacist in China. Looking for a way to deliver the nicotine that users crave, but also making it safer than a regular cigarette, he came up with the original versions. They were bulky, didn’t work well, but it was a start.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday. Oh and Friday the 13th no less. I guess that's fitting for an October, considering Halloween and this spooky market. 

So they used yesterday as their pause day. The DOW faded off about 30 points, the S&P fell by about 4. Is that significant? In a 23K market, that's not even a rounding error.

It took them most of the day, and getting past the Fed's minutes, but they scratched and clawed and sure enough, we ended the day green. The DOW got 42, the S&P got it's "tenth of what the DOW does" nabbing 4 and another green day goes in the pocket. 

10.11.2017 - Russia, China and the Vegas Thing Bookmark

Hi all, the latest Free Investment newsletter is up and tonight we mention a bit more about the Vegas shooting, but we really focus on Russia and China's desire to distance themselves from the US dollar. 

 

China has launched an oil futures market, funded by their currency the Yuan and convertible to gold. Russia has an alternative to our SWIFT system, and is working on a blockchain technology to maybe implement a cryptocurrency backed by gold. This is important stuff and most people are ignoring it. 

 

Give it a read, it's pretty good stuff.

Thoughts
 
There’s several ways I could go with tonight’s letter, from poking more holes in the official Vegas shooting story, to commenting about China and Russia’s continued moves to distance themselves from the US dollar.
 
I will go with the shooting for just a brief moment. More and more videos have emerged that prove without a doubt that there were shooters on the grounds, and yet the media continues to follow the official plot of one lone wolf gunman on the 32nd floor.  Now we’re hearing that the shooters home has been “broken into” and they’re going to have to go back to investigate.  Really?
