Well here we go. It's earnings season and as I expected, earnings are going to be manufactured, lied about and made to look better than they are.

Last night Alcoa "beat" estimates on lower revenues.
Shortly after, BBBY came out and they too missed revenues. They guided lower.

I have no clue.

I have no idea why we were up about 65 points with only 30 minutes left in the day, and we closed red. There was no big news that I could find, there was simply no solid reason for the sell off that is "public" news. Surely something was said or done somewhere, but I didn't find it.

This morning the futures are flattish - green. We've got the DOW up 16, the S&P up a couple.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Tuesday.

Monday they celebrated an absolutely atrocious jobs report that they couldn't cheer about on Friday because the market was closed. If that seems sort of upside down...cheering a lousy report...it is. Unless of course you're a Wall Street criminal who only cares about money printing and zero interest rates for ever.

Big Money and Easter

(Rich and Wealthy aren’t necessarily the same)

In many circles this is the most holy week of all. From Palm Sunday through “Spy Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and Easter itself, this particular time of the year is incredibly important to millions of people.

Because of its solemn importance to so many, I’m not going to go off about the elites, the criminal bankers, the crooked politicians. I’m not going to diatribe about provoking Russia, endless mindless wars, race problems, gay activists, or any of a million other topics just ripe to discuss. No. We’re not going to talk about “bad things” and what you have to do about it.  If you’re looking for a rant, stay tuned for next week because I have some things to “go off” on that need discussing. But for today, in the spirit of the season, I want to talk about being rich. Do you need big money to be rich?

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your Holiday weekend. I really do hope it was a wonderful time for you all, and that you spent it with friends and family in the spirit of the season.  Down here in Florida, we also had the benefit of some incredible weather to help with the occasion. It was simply a spectacular weekend.

What is Your Goal?

We all have one, whether we even remember it or not. As children, we all aspired to be the doctor, the fireman, the teacher,  the policeman, the nurse, what ever. We had our dreams, and the world seemed to be a place where you could be anything you wanted to be.  Often however as we “grew up”, either our goals were changed, or enough negative people filled your heads with the idea that you couldn’t reach your goal. You weren’t smart enough, strong enough, pretty enough, etc. In any event, facts show that it is indeed a “rare club” that reaches the goals and desires that one starts with.

Okay folks, this is the last trading day of the week. Are they going to ramp us up for the long weekend and make everything look better? It would fit the plot for sure.

We are probing some market lows here, and it isn't terribly clear if they're going to hold. But if you look back at enough long weekends over the last few years, you usually see that they do come in and buy things up.

The futures are a bit soggy, but nothing in the range of scary. The DOW off about 26, the S&P off about 4.

Mornin' everyone, let's try and make sense of this mess....

Yesterday was going along "okay" for most of the day, although it was no doubt weaker than we expected. Then at about 3 pm the bottom fell out and "down we went".  Over "a billion shares to sell" hit the market in that last hour as we had a combination of profit taking and rebalancing for the last day of the quarter.  We ended the day down 200.

Did I expect that? Not even a little bit.
