Good morning all, welcome to Friday, and another day closer to Christmas....

Before we get started I want to relate a fun  personal note here for a second. Yesterday I got a phone call from a man I know whom I've become "phone buddies" with over the last 5 or 6 years. He's a radio host up on the Connecticut area, and he has me on about once every two months or so for our view of things. A truly good host, he encourages some great discussion. Yesterday when the phone rang and I saw the number, I said to myself...Oh, he's probably got an interview he'd like me to do"....

A day of records.

Yesterday brought the level of absurd to a whole new place.  After the 260 point mindless algo-bot driven romp in the morning, we then saw a reversal that not only took all that away, but we fell another 100+ points on top of it. Inside the day, the DOW moved over 800 points if you add up all the pops and drops. But there were other records. The morning gain was the most amount of points in the least amount of time seen all year. The amount of quotes posted on the S&P Emini futures board were higher than ever seen before.

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

Everyone knows about last week. It was the worst performance of the S&P in over two years. We saw something like 700 points flee the DOW. It was indeed the very sell off that we expected the week before, it was simply postponed a week.

There's a lot of reasons why we got the sell off. Profit taking, locking in yearly performance, tax selling, crashing oil prices and a host of other reasons. The only important question is this... is the selling over? I don't truly know that answer, but I can give my guess/opinion about it.

Good morning all, welcome back from the weekend. I had spent the last week up in NJ, seeing some friends, and shutting down our little vacation get-away in the woods. It was a fun week, but the weather certainly didn't cooperate for us as It rained almost every day I was there. After living in FL for the last 8 years, it doesn't take many 30 degree rainy days to chill me right to the bone! I'm glad I'm home!

Morning all....

Well at 8 am the first thing we learned is that the ECB has left rates "unchanged". Well there's a surprise eh?  They certainly couldn't raise them, and since they're basically at 0 now, cutting seems pretty desperate.  So, shortly after the ECB announcement, the US futures were up about 15 points on the DOW, 2 on the S&P. Now of course all eyes will be on Mario Draghi, as they expect him to plead the case for massive QE, something he's been jawboning about for two years.

Hello Everyone....

At 8 am the futures are statistically "flat" with the DOW down 2.

Yesterday we gained 102 points to a new all time high. Did I expect that? Nope. While I did figure they'd try and get us green after Monday's dip, I had no feeling that they'd get us "that green".

Good morning all, welcome back from your Thanksgiving feast. I had what I consider the perfect day, it was low key, filled with family and friends and we did a "whole lot of nothing" except chatting, eating and drinking. I wish it was more like the old pilgrim "days of thanks" because their's wasn't just one day, it was THREE!

But it's over now and we're back in the saddle. Remember folks the market is only open until 1 pm Eastern today. I'll probably be shut down an hour ahead of that.

Morning all, welcome to a new day.

The world is certainly a funny place right now. Overnight we saw PMI's come in below estimates from Europe to China, to Japan. That along with the fact that the Fed's minutes didn't contain any hints of keeping rates at zero for ever, or even the slightest mention of board members considering QE...has the futures a bit underwater. At 8 am we have the DOW off 60 and the S&P off 8.

Hello folks, lets see if any of these Emails get to you today. Back on Monday at about 9 am, our Email service "Constant Contact" pretty much blew up. It was a hard crash where none of their services worked. Even yesterday things were not looking good, as Emails were being sent but they were sporadic and very late.  Today they say they're back to running normally, but time will tell.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday.

There will be NO afternoon update today. I'm traveling to Arizona for the Financial Fest event being held in Scottsdale tomorrow.  In fact, I hope that any of you who live in the area stop by and introduce yourself. I'd really enjoy meeting you. 

Okay, on Sunday we said in the newsletter that the market was overbought and probably setting up for either a pause or a pullback. So far the week has been more of a pause than anything else.  Monday was up, Tuesday and Wednesday were "dead flat" and yesterday they rallied the troops in the afternoon to reverse a red start.
