Hey everyone, welcome to Thursday.

There was no margin call selling yesterday afternoon. Instead the buy the dip crowd rushed out of the woodwork and in the last hour we soared higher. Okay that's fine, because frankly that's the kind of wicked bounce we thought we were going to get Tuesday, but it didn't hold.

Good morning all, welcome to.... a wild morning

You all know what happened on Thursday and Friday. It was a blood bath no doubt about it.  Overnight it happened again. The Chinese market puked again and because of it, the selling resumed all across the globe. Most of Europe is off 5% on the session. Germany's DAX is now below 10K.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day.

NOTE>>>>  Friday will be like "last Friday" for me, my son and I are traveling back to FL.  Just a heads up that I'll be pretty scarce this coming Friday.

Good morning all, welcome to the new week. First off I want to thank all of you who sent along well wishes for my and my son on our trip north. It was quite uneventful thankfully, however I will say this...Ya know those 93 million souls "not in the workforce?"  Well, they're all out on the highways. I have never seen such traffic. I've made the trip by vehicle approximately 27 times from FL to NJ, and this was the single worst for traffic I've ever seen.   I find it bizarre in a way, when you are on a 4 lane highway designed for 75 mph travel, yet you are literally stopped in place doing the "go 20 feet, stop, go 20 feet stop" thing for 2 HOURS just to approach the Delaware bridge.  NO accidents. Just too many vehicles.

Hello everyone, welcome back from your weekend.

Okay, on Friday the world was ending, the market was crashing and all manner of hell was breaking loose. Or so it seemed anyway.

Well that was fun. Just because the Central banks jawboned about possibly extending QE, we've rallied hundreds of points. It wasn't because we opened more small businesses, or cut taxes or cured cancer...nope. Just the hint that the Fed punchbowl might get refilled fired them up.

But now the ECB has denied that it is going to go on a bond buying spree twice already

Will They Do More QE?

Pull up a chair and let’s chat folks.  This is going to be an interesting letter on a lot of levels, so let’s get started.

Everyone that has any interest in finance knows that the Federal Reserve has had a program in place called Quantitative Easing for the past 5 years. For those of you who don’t understand what it is, the basics are that the Fed’s have printed up money and then used that money to buy Treasuries from the Government and to soak up toxic assets like bad mortgages from the banks. In doing so, it has had the effect of constantly lowering interest rates, since they don’t have to raise rates to “lure” folks into buying the T bills. The Fed’s would buy them at any price, and any rate of return.

But the offshoot of QE was that because they were buying up toxic crap from the banks, AND because Treasuries are also bought from the “primary dealers” ( the big banks) the banks got tons and tons of money to go play cowboy in the asset markets. With virtually zero percent money for the big companies to borrow and buy back their own stock, and all the bank money sloshing around, we’ve had the best bull market that fake money can buy. Stocks are up gigantically since the beginning of the program.

The wild week continues....

Yesterday the market traded in a wild range of 276 points. From the lows to the highs, we made wild massive swings. At the close, things were relatively flat.

Last night the futures were pretty much flat all evening until about 30 minutes after Europe opened. Then all hell broke loose. Why? One of the ECB members came out and said that  QE would start within days to buy up assets.  Well that's all it took to fire up all the robot computers on earth. Europe started to soar, and our futures here in the states went from flat to up 25 on the S&P.
