You all know how much I railed back against Facebook for their self imposed censoring of anything they feel is “against their policies”. The most “in your face” for me was when they decided to shut down all the gun forums. They sent a letter to any and all gun forums that if the forum allowed the private sale of rifles or handguns between members, they’d pull the plug on them. Well the following Monday morning dozens of well run sporting and gunning club sites went dark.

Hello everyone, welcome to Wednesday.

Yesterday had a lot of twists and turns to it. After the giant up day on Monday, Tuesday dawned and erased all those gains. But as usual, while it looked like uncontrolled mayhem, if you step back a bit and look at the bigger picture, the numbers tell a story.

What was the low back on Friday's big sell off?  2127.  Where did we end the session yesterday? 2127.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day....

One could ask... what the heck was Friday all about?  A 400 point drop out of the clear blue over someone suggesting they might do a 25 basis point hike??  Then Monday rolls around and after a soft start, we soar for 250 DOW points... but more importantly, the S&P runs ALL THE WAY BACK to being "inside the box" again.  Really?

Good morning everyone, welcome back from the weekend. As always I hope it was a good one for you all, especially since it was the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  Down here the weather held up perfectly for the wife and I to sneak in our bike ride to the beach and get some time splashing around in the warm waters of the gulf.  Then, Sunday evening I was invited to attend an incredibly well done memorial to the 9/11 families and survivors. Many don't know this, but Sarasota is home to an incredibly beautiful National Cemetery. The 295 acre is home to thousands of passed Veterans and members of their family.

9.10.2016- Market PUKE! Bookmark

The new edition of our Free Investing Newsletter is posted up already and in it we explore the market melt down that happened on Friday. Was it all because of some hints of a rate hike? Is there something else to it, like being connected to the Election? Did the Central banks decide not to play any more?  We take a look at all these things and try and figure out the plot.

Folks our letter is completely free and has been for over 20 years. When someone posts up a free investment newsletter, you might figure that because it is free, it's fluff. I assure you our letters are NOT fluff. Take a few minutes and read this issue, I think you'll find it interesting.

September Slam?
NOTE>> Today is the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  There will be solemn observances of this event going on all across America. By all means, take your moments to pay homage to the thousands of people who were killed, and the tens of thousands that mourn the loss of their loved ones. The criminals will be outted one day...but for today, just pray for those in pain.

Things just continue to get ever more curious, don't they?

On Wednesday, the labor department "revised" away approximately 150,000 jobs over the last 12 months.  Many don't know this, but once a year the Government compares its jobs date against a more complete set of information and then "adjusts" what they see. Well, that doesn't happen until February, but they did go ahead in their "first look" and suggest that their numbers are off about 150K.   If you think about that, and add in all the hundreds of thousands of jobs the Birth/Death model added, you come away with the idea that the jobs market is really broken.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday.

So yesterday they pulled the magic levitation levers late in the session and reversed a 6 point S&P dump.  When the final bell rang we were statistically unchanged on the day. Then last night we had the interesting "town hall" interview between Hillary and Trump. I found it interesting.

Us and Them 
In 1973, the bank Pink Floyd released the album "Dark Side of the Moon". For many, myself included, it was one of the greatest albums ever released. I was still in high school and a lot of the words in those songs reverberated with me and my peers. One in particular, "Us and Them" was loosely composed around the horror of war, and how regular people wouldn't choose to ever go to war.

Morning all.....

Yesterday many of you noticed there was no 1 pm update. Folks... I could lie, make up some baloney about a tech problem,  or what have you. But the truth is there was no post because I was on a conference call, got all wrapped up in it and by the time it dawned on me that "holy crap I gotta do an update" it was well past 2. I looked at the market, saw things hadn't really done anything and figured "what's the point?"  At that point I just continued on with the overseas call.  Sorry about that.
