Good morning all, are you really ready for yet another day of this insanity?  No? Me neither, but alas...we plod ahead.

If you're a market watcher/participant you saw the crazy moves yesterday. After the Fed's minutes were released the market puked, and was well below 2040 on the S&P. They had to get a few more hats to pull rabbits out of, but they did indeed pull it off. The S&P didn't close at 2034 which was the low of the day. It closed at 2047 comfortably above any danger zone.

What a week it's been. Yellen Chickened out of talking tough about interest rates, and the market loved that. The market then expected the Japanese Central Bank to come out with an even bigger QE program and see them buying more ETF's and individual stocks. But no, Kuroda pulled a fast one on them and did NOTHING extra. So all the stocks and currency swaps the Street had bought in anticipation had to be unrolled. As they were doing that, Carl Icahn came on CNBC Thursday and said he had sold his whole stake in Apple, and that he wasn't too positive about the overall market. That sent us down 200 points.   Today should be interesting to say the least. Do they once again "buy the dip", or do they let the rug get pulled?  You'll know shortly.

Morning all, welcome to the day....

Last night we got confirmation that every single thing I ranted about in the newsletter was spot on. Everyone and his brother was convinced that the Bank of Japan was going to increase their QE program and thus knock down the yen, and boost stock prices. So they got positioned for that.

Can You Beat City Hall?

While there’s a million things I’d like to write about, I keep trying to hammer one point over and over, because it is indeed “that important”.  What is that point? If you truly see what they’ve been doing, you’d have to admit to yourself that we’ve entered the twilight zone matrix-like market.

Because I pump out 2 letters a week for over 20 years, it becomes hard to follow the plot sometimes. Hey, I get it. We talk about a lot of things in these letters. But there are “big themes” that don’t change week to week and it is the big theme that I’m talking about right now.

4.27.2016 - It's FED day! Bookmark

Yes folks, today is Fed day. Today the merry band of un-elected criminals get to tell us what they're going to do concerning monetary policy and interest rates. While there's no chance of a rate hike announcement, everyone and his brother will be scanning the release to see if Yellen is going to remain "Dovish" and talk softly, or lean "hawkish" and warn that a rate hike could be coming in June.  Oh and by the way, I'll be posting the Financial Intelligence report at about 6 pm, where I'm going to lay out exactly how and why the Central banks ( our Fed included) are propping up the stock market. You'll want to read that one.

Good morning all, welcome to Fed day.

Today we'll get the decision of the FOMC concerning interest rate policy. I can't wait to see what mumbo-jumbo they spew this time. While the chances of them announcing a sneak rate hike are about 0, the interesting part will be if they "talk tough" about possibly doing something in June.

Good morning all, welcome to another day....

Doha didn't matter. Morgan Stanley didn't matter. Nothing seems to matter, the market simply goes up. Every day.

Morning all, welcome to Thursday.

Yesterday got sort of stupid. JPM is blamed for being the catalyst to the almost 200 point gain, but frankly they were nothing more than an excuse that pushed us up over that 2075 level on the S&P. Once we saw that,  and then the Atlanta Fed HIKED their GDP estimates, it became a short covering frenzy.

4.8.2016

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday.  (Whew!)

In Sunday night's letter I suggested that my feeling was that we'd trade sideways and down this week. Well so far that's come true. Opening Monday at 2073 on the S&P, we fell Monday and Tuesday, bounced big Wednesday and then rolled back over Thursday.

As yesterday afternoon was developing, the market started to swoon. At one point the DOW was down over 215 points, and the S&P was down about 30+. It looked like they had finally decided to "pull the plug"  But...we'd seen things like this before, only to see them save the day.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day.

Once again a fairly "punk" day made it back to green, as the "riggers" seem to never want to allow a red close.  Yesterday was a study in low volume "wandering" as the market was green, then red, then green and back and forth all day. But the range was very narrow...within the statistical equivalent of "flat".
