10.31.2014 Japan Goes Full Stupid Bookmark

As if seeing the market rise 200 points yesterday on the heels of Visa and their 5 billion dollar buy back wasn't enough, this morning I wake up to almost "limit up" futures. What in the world was that about? Well it seems that over in Japan, they've gone "all in" on a new round of QE, saying they will flood their market with 80 TRILLION yen.

Yesterday for no really discernible reason the market decided to go nuts. The moves weren't little and cautious, we were seeing stocks moving in big chunks. CMI for example was up 9 dollars. Buffalo Wild wings up 18 on the day. If a company even got close to its estimates, it was "straight up".

Consider for a minute Amazon. The other day they announced earnings that showed they were off about a buck a share. Everyone grumbled that maybe Amazon's river of no returns was over. Yet it was up over 7 bucks a share.

Sanity has left the building.

Yesterday the market took a pause to catch its breath. It was a well deserved rest considering how far the indexes have come in just 6 trading sessions. But overnight the futures resumed their magic levitation, and frankly...there's not a lot of reasons for it that make any sense.

Here we go again....

After four days of intense buying, the market was short term overbought, and quite stretched. It needed a pause day, and yesterday was it. They blamed oil, they blamed the strange shooting situation at the Canadian Parliament. But we tend to think they were excuses rather than reasons.

All night long the futures were soggy. Over in Europe most of the indexes were slightly red. But then they got the juice they needed.

Good morning folks, the madness continues.......

Yesterday the S&P put in a good showing, and even the DOW made it to slightly greed despite IBM missing earnings by a mile. After the close and Apple's earnings, there was a flurry of futures action, and then the air started coming out. Futures were drifting lower and once again there was the all too familiar "save".

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I surely hope it was a good one for you all. Down here in Florida, we had a most spectacular weather weekend. The humidity went away, the temps cooled off and the sky was deep blue. It made for a perfect day to go for our weekly bike ride and beach walk.  I could surely go for a bunch more days like that.

In market land, things got sort of crazy this morning. Overnight the futures were up pretty strong, although they were fading just a bit from the highs. Then they simply "crashed". What was the problem? IBM.  They came out with their earnings, and they missed by a mile on the top and bottom line. It was the 10th quarter in a row of year over year drops.

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.

10.16.2014 More Selling?? Bookmark

Last night in the Newsletter we suggested that the selling wasn't over. We felt that we'd be going down again. BUT we felt that would happen AFTER a bounce off yesterday's lows. In other words, we figured we'd go green for a couple days and then see the energy fade out again and we'd go down and test the lows. But this morning at 7 am the futures are down 150 points on the DOW and the S&P is off about 20.

Morning all, welcome to what could be an interesting day.

The futures are all over the map this morning but mostly deep red. So, what's their issue this morning? Didn't they do a pretty good job of at least keeping the market flat yesterday? They did.  So what's up with all the red? Well, it started in Europe. Italy, Greece, and a handful of others were very weak, So this morning we've got a sea of red over there, with Germany down 100.

But there's another twist to the story. Evidently down in Texas there's another healthcare worker that's tested positive for Ebola. That's got folks rattled a bit.

10.14.2014 Bounce Day? Bookmark

On Monday the market was trying to hold up all day, but then in the last hour an enormous futures dump hit, as somebody liquidated over  4400 E-mini futures in one sell. That sent the algo-bots into hyper drive and it fed on itself. But today is a new day, and 3 of the major banking institutions have released earnings.
