Hello all, it's Tuesday. Do you have your "what's Trump going to do" popcorn bowl ready?  One thing is for sure, love him or hate him, he's not boring. Every day brings something to talk about, and today will be no different.

Good morning all, we've made it. After a month of trading sideways and banging our heads on that prize, we finally overtook it. There was much blowing of kazoo's, and high five's.

A Nostalgic Moment

I’m writing this on Friday as I’m watching the inauguration ceremonies. I didn’t really have the motivation to break into a long winded article however, because at 8 am I had to endure a Root Canal procedure.  While it went well, it is stressful and basically made me sleepy.
 
But watching the splendor and grandeur of the ceremony, was moving to me. For all the problems we have  - and boy are they many, for all the divisiveness, for all the vitriolic bickering, there was still something regal about it all. How? The very fact that it still functioned.

Everything's Rigged, All of It
 
You all know that the major bankers have been hit with over 30 BILLION dollars worth of fines for rigging markets. They've rigged LIBOR, Gold, Silver, Forex, etc. This isn't speculation, this isn't a theory, this is simply the truth. You can look up the cases.

So the question is, if the banking institutions will collude with each other and rig the price of say LIBOR rates, or the daily quote on Silver, do you think it stops there? I argue "no way!".   From where I sit, I see manipulation and rigging every where I look.

Earlier today we got the oil inventory numbers. Now think back to your economics 101 class. What happens if supply is tight on something? The natural reaction is for prices to rise. Likewise, if supply is abundant, then it holds to reason that prices would fall. So, what did we see in the oil numbers? Let's take a look....

Fearful Predictions 2017

 
Every year I make a fool of myself, by trying to predict what the upcoming year will bring.  But in my defense, I will say that after doing this for over 20 years, I have had quite a few years where things worked out almost exactly as I thought. This year will not be one of them. Why? Too many variables.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday was certainly interesting on a lot of levels. It was of course electors day, and all eyes were on the votes. In quite the interesting twist, Trump had 2 electors that wouldn't vote for him. But Hillary actually lost 5! Ha. Actually it is much worse than that for her, as in Nevada a lot of Hillary electors were going to abandon her, but a judge actually forced them to hold the line.

Good morning all, welcome to another day in the Trump rally!  

Yesterday the market spent the bulk of the day just digesting the huge gains from last week. But sure enough, later in the day they got their act together and "boom" up we went. While it's true that the S&P couldn't make it back to green, the DOW managed to tack on 40 more points.

Good morning all, welcome to a new week. This has become an interesting week for the wife and I, as 1) our friends from "up north" are down for a weeks vacation and we're enjoying seeing them, and 2) another dear friend (Charley) has given us an early Christmas present...the keys to his oceanfront condo for the week. So it truly is a blessed week for us. Good friends, and an exciting place to spend the week add up to another reason to be "thankful".  Wow. 

Oh, ps...if you see even more typo's than usual, I'm writing on a laptop for the week and the keyboard lay out is smaller than my normal keyboard and it's giving me fits. Sorry about that.

12.7.2016 - Free Investment Newsletter! Bookmark

Hey everyone, as we look at this "Donald Trump" rally, which has taken the market to extremely new highs, we have posted the free investing newsletter tonight. It's titled "The coming wars of 2017" and in it, we discuss the war on cash that's raging around the globe and the incredibly dangerous war on free speech that's being waged. 

While the Trump rally is built on the idea that tax cuts and reduced regulations will spur company growth, the real economy of the moment is still in dire trouble. The elites, who got burned when the alternative media exposed Hillary and the DNC, have now waged an all out war over "fake news" sites.  Twitter, facebook, youtube and others have been asked to censor the posting of fake news. 

Who decides what's real and what's fake? They do. Internet trolls with an agenda do. Yes folks, 2017 is going to be an incredibly crazy year.

Muddy Water
 
Trying to predict the future is an exercise in being wrong a lot. Yet the future has an interesting way of showing up in our lives. So trying to connect the dots, and create some form of landscape of what the future could/should bring, at least makes sense.  
 
So before we get too far down this rabbit hole, let me say this. IF Hillary had stolen the election, I had a very clear and precise idea of what our future was going to look like.  It was easy, too easy. All we had to do was take the 8 years of Obama’s admin, look at what they did and how, and project that into the next 4 years.  But Hillary didn’t win. Trump did.
