In today's Financial Intelligence Report, we're talking about the Feds latest interest rate hike, and what it means to the market going forward. We also talk about insider selling, and the length of this current bull market. 

As you may or may not know, the insiders have been selling record amounts of their own stock lately, and if you couple that with rising rates, a flat yield curve, and the duration of this bull market, you come away wondering "how can this keep going?" It's a good question and we chat about it extensively in today's letter. 

Please give it a read, and as always it's a free newsletter.

Rocks and Hard Places
This week the Feds hiked interest rates by a quarter of one percent. On the surface, that means very little to most people. Oh sure, they might see their credit card interest rate wiggle higher, or have to pay another 40 bucks a month on a 15 year loan, but "it just sounds so small."

Hello all, we've made it to Friday. 

Yesterday was really something to remember. The country was transfixed by the Kvanaugh/Ford testimony. In fact, so many people tuned in to those hearings, that volumes on Wall Street fell by approximately 50% during some of it.

Wow, I'm running a bit late today, and frankly I don't quite know why. It's not like I've traveled to the wife's office or anything. 

Anyway, today is supposed to bring us the media circus of all time, that being the Kavanaugh Hearings. This is going to be a media spectacle of enormous size, and one can only hope it gets over quickly.

Good morning all, welcome to Fed day. 

Later today the Feds will announce that they're hiking rates by 25 basis points. Everyone knows and accepts that. What they're going to be looking for is what the Feds have to say about doing "more" hikes.

Yesterday was an interesting "hot mess".  Whether the Rosenstein news was the cause or the excuse for a market fade, we did end up losing 181 DOW points and 10 S&P's.  The NASDAQ however, did an interesting move. It faded down and landed right on its 50 day moving average, and then bounced forcefully. It actually ended the day green. 

Or maybe the fade wasn't about Rosenstein at all. Maybe it was the 200 billion in tariffs that got them spooked?

Hello all, welcome back from your weekend. I'm hopeful it was a good one for you all. 

For those of you in the NC, SC, VA area,  I pray you're recovering from the flood waters and that some form of normality is creeping in.

Hello all, are you ready for another mindless run higher? If not, strap yourself in, because at least for the open we're going to see  new all-time S&P highs. That's what the futures suggest anyway. 

This morning we got the Philly read on their local economy and it came in at 21, well above the 15 expected. Initial jobless claims fell a bit.

Good morning all, welcome to wonderland. 

There's a million things going on "out there" and each one of those things deserves a full article written about it. 

For instance, over in North Korea, Kim Jong Un has been meeting with South Korea's president, and word has it that the north has agreed to dismantle its missile facilities, and ultimately allow international observers on site. They are also going to "jointly" bid on hosting the 2030 Olympics.

Hello all, welcome to a new day. 

The silliness continues. Yesterday the DOW fell almost 100 and the S&P fell about 16.  Supposedly that was because of the 200 billion worth of tariffs. But this morning the futures are bright green, with the DOW up about 70 and the S&P up 7.
