Good morning everyone, welcome to Tuesday. 

Yesterday my plan was to do "nothing" and just watch. I think it was a good idea, as we saw some pretty interesting sell downs across quite a few sectors. 
the poster child was CAT.

Good morning all, welcome back from your two day hiatus. I hope it was an exceptional weekend for you all. 

Ours wasn't exceptional, but it was good enough. Saturday had me doing some of the normal things we do, like restocking the food shelves, and getting the oil changed. But Saturday night we managed to hit a sports bar and grille that was recommended to us as "having great food, great prices and a fun atmosphere".  Well it was all of that, and we'll be going there again for sure.

Good morning folks, and yes it's yet another Friday. 

My theory had been that the market would hold up Thursday, and then after the bell Amazon would report earnings, beat the estimates and soar. That would pull the entire NASDAQ higher and we'd come into Friday with big bright futures.

Morning all, this should get interesting. 

Yesterday afternoon, the news broke that the EU and the US were making progress on open trade, and the market loved what it heard. In 30 minutes the DOW, which had only been up about 15, was up 170. The S&P was up 4, and ran to + 25. It was good news

The Wednesday evening edition of the Free Investing Newsletter is up, and you're going to like it. Why? It's considerably shorter than normal!  In a massive mistake, I left the actual article that was scheduled for tonight on my office Computer and never forwarded it to myself here at my wife's office. Since I have to pick her up at the airport, I can't run back up there and send it. So, I cobbled some ideas together. 

 

One of them is this: The EU has decided today to work a bit closer with Trump on trade, maybe lowering taxes and tariffs. If that catches on, they're going to be very happy. We could see that carry the market momentum to new highs. Wow, I didn't think that would happen, but it's looking possible now. 

 

Give it a quick read, and then on Sunday we're going to publish an interesting "back and forth" about how it could happen. Or not.

Boom!

 

I think you’ll find the best part of today’s letter is that it’s going to be pretty short.  I had a nice article all finished up to send for this evening, but I wrote it in my home office, and simply forgot to forward it to my wife’s office.

Good morning everyone, are we ready for another strange day in market land? Probably not, but it's coming anyway. 

I woke early today and when I flipped on a monitor on the way down the hall, I saw the S&P futures "unch" , meaning unchanged. They were 100% flat. Not up, not down. But as the news cycle evolved over the mornning, the futures started dipping and by 8 am, we had the DOW down 100 and the S&P off 6.

Well now....

After a remarkably flattish day yesterday, where the DOW lost 13 and the S&P gained 5, we come into today.  When I first rolled out of the sack, the futures were flat, almost unchanged ( 5:30)

But with some good earnings reports and the hype around Google's upgrades, the futures started climbing and by 6 am, we have the DOW up  over 100, and the S&P flirting with +10.

Good morning all, welcome back from what I hope was a wonderful weekend!  

Saturday was fairly routine for me, I did a bit of shopping, hit the farmers market, etc. I did have to spend some uncomfortable time helping clean out my Aunt and Uncles place, now that they've passed and their unit will be sold. I didn't enjoy that much.

Hello all, we've stumbled into another Friday. 

Yesterday they "saved" S&P 2800.  For a brief time, we traded below that level, but they came in and boosted it back over.  Despite the save, they ended the day with the market red across the board. Not terribly deep red, as the DOW was only down 134 and the S&P was down 11.
