Cramer Sees the Light?
 
200 Billion A Month

That’s the amount of QE being done by Central banks around the world. Chew on that for a minute, because I’m going to take you on a little tour in a minute. So, every 5 months, 1 Trillion dollars comes sloshing into the worlds markets. Some of it is used to buy things like Treasury bonds, Sovereign bonds, and even short term notes. But a lot of it is used for something much more “interesting.

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday. However it's Jobs Friday and we have to get past that.

Yesterday was a low volume, boring session that basically just existed to keep the market flat ahead of today's jobs. However, like many days lately...as the big averages didn't do much, there was movement inside the averages.

So, Friday was “jobs” day. The first Friday of every month brings us the “non farm payroll report”.  This piece of data is watched by every market participant, because the labor data is correlated to monetary policy such as interest rates.

 

The Fed’s have been sitting on their pedestal telling us how wonderful the recovery is and that the labor markets are so hot that they’re worried about overheating. For months now they’ve had a smug attitude about how many jobs there are, and that their monetary policy has indeed saved the world.

Morning all, we've made it to jobs Friday. 

Since I got up this morning the futures have been inching higher. From slightly red at 5:45 to up 1.5, they've pulled the S&P up.  Around the globe most markets are slightly in the green.  

So the big question of the day is this... there's a two day Fed meeting on the 14th and 15th. Is this jobs report going to be instrumental in their decision?

Hello all, we've made it to Friday. And, not just any Friday, but JOBS Friday. That always puts a special twist on things.

Yesterday was another long soggy day, where their goal was not to push the market higher, but instead...not let it fall. After being down to 2045 during the session, the magic arrived and we ended the day at 2050. Smack dab on the exact number that I've been suggesting they have  to hold.

Good morning all, welcome to the new day.

Quick review....

We had a 300+ point day on Tuesday.  So Wednesday it would have been natural to give a bit of it back. 300 points, even in this Robot driven casino is a lot. But, it wasn't to be. After a couple small stumbles, they dusted themselves off and made a mad dash for green late in the afternoon. When the bell rang, we had 8 new S&P points and 34 on the DOW.

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday. It seems like I could say "and what a week it's been!"  almost every week. The market is going through gyrations that are really quite astounding. When you see the DOW dip 200 points and then end the day up 200, that's a 400 point round trip. For many "decades" we wouldn't see 400 points up or down in a month. Now we do it daily.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday...

Yesterday was another trip into the bizarre. The DOW moved over 400 points on the day, as it dipped by almost 200 and then soared for 200 positive points.

Overnight things were mostly calm, and coming into this morning we saw the futures up modestly. At 6 am I think I saw the DOW up 40, the S&P up 4.

Hello everyone, welcome to Friday.  Job's Friday.

I'm sure you all know what happened yesterday afternoon. After being soggy for a large portion of the morning, they appeared willing to hold the market up with just a relatively small loss. But no, as the afternoon progressed more and more traders started to figure out that things aren't quite as wonderful out there as previously thought and lightened up positions. Draghi didn't offer up the "bazooka" load of rate cuts and QE they were hoping for, and Yellen was still talking tough on the Hill at the joint economic committee

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday and more insanity than you probably need.....

You all know what happened yesterday. From Wal-Mart's horrific warning to JPM missing earnings, to the economic reports coming in like dog poop, to Netflix missing earnings after the bell. That had the futures last evening looking pretty bad, but then...."it" happened.
