Hello everyone, welcome back from your weekend and into the Holiday week. Remember this week only has 3.5 trading sessions in it, as we'll be closed on Thursday and a half a day on Friday.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday.  Don't forget that next week is a shortened week because of the Thanksgiving Holiday.  The exchanges will be closed on Thanksgiving and only open a half day on Friday.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday. 

It's hard to believe that it's Thanksgiving next week. Where on earth did this year go?  The older I get, the faster it goes. Amazing. 

Okay, so the market has been acting heavy, and I've been quite reluctant to suggest that it is anything more than just some funds taking profits and making their year look good for their brochures. Yesterday, after an initial plunge of about 160 points, they got us off the lows, tried to move us higher, but we ended the day pretty red.  We were just 30 points off the low of the day.

Good morning all, I hope it's a good one for you.  I want to start off the morning by sending a prayer to my friend Phil Mikan, who's wonderful wife had to undergo surgery for cancer yesterday. I pray for a complete and total recovery.

Hello everyone, welcome to Tuesday. 

So I woke up at 6 am and as is my norm, I wandered into the office and flipped on a monitor to see where the futures were. They were flat, with the indexes literally almost unchanged. But as time went on, they started to fade some and then we found "one" of the reasons. Janet Yellen had opened her mouth about stock prices and P/E ratio's.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a great weekend for you all. Down here in sunny Florida, we had our yearly "sand sculpture" contest on Siesta beach.  This is an international competition, and sculptors from around the world come to Sarasota to create the most incredible sand sculptures you've ever seen. Starting on about Thursday the artists get their particular space, and begin mounding up the sand and preparing. Then by Friday they're completely absorbed in sculpting. The end results are shown on Saturday and Sunday with a winner finally declared.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday

Okay, so yesterday they had the opportunity to see them sell this market off.  It started off like it was really going to happen. But no, after the plunge based on the idea that the tax cuts might not show up until 2019,  they halted the slide and like so many other days, they clawed us back up.

OOPS!!   

For months on end I've been suggesting that we've been playing a game of musical chairs and that on any particular day the music could stop. While they have the momentum and the Central bank cash to paper over most problems, there's no question that we're in a massive bubble and every bubble meets its pin. Eventually.

Morning all, welcome to yet another day

Yesterday was simply soggy. after a banner start out of the gate, gravity kicked in and the indexes went red and stayed there for  the bulk of the day. It wasn't deep red, and in fact the DOW ended the day up 8, with the S&P losing half a point, and the techs fading for 18.  One has to put these days in perspective, 8 points in a 23.5K market isn't even a rounding error.

Morning folks, welcome to Tuesday. 

Yesterday they had so much to munch on, they couldn't quite figure out what they wanted to do. No one seemed willing to do any wholesale selling but no one was really diving in head first either. Between Korea, the Presidents Asia trip, the shooting, Uranium one, and a host of other topics, they decided to just take it easy.  We ended the day with the S&P up 3, the DOW managed 9.
