Mornin' all, and yes, it's happening again. 

303 points to the downside yesterday, before a major reversal off the lows. So what doo we see this morning? Well, after the bell last night CSCO beat their earnings, and then this morning WalMart beat their earnings. The combo of the two, along with a pause in the Turkey news helped. But it was also aided by something I warned you all about.

Hey everyone, welcome to Wednesday.

Yesterday it was my thought early on that they'd get us green and it would indeed last the day. Well that happened. Despite a shaky start, they moved in quickly to stabilize things and by mid afternoon, they had the DOW up 140 and the S&P up 21. We closed off those levels, but not by much. The DOW went out + 112, the S&P went out + 18.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday.

Early on this morning the futures were pretty flat, and then Home Depot released their earnings. If what they put out is actually real, it was a good report, maybe very good. Year over year comp's were up strongly and they even raised guidance for the year. That got the futures all hot and bothered, and from just being "flat", they roared to where the DOW was up over 100 and the S&P was up 11.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As is habit, I truly hope it was a great one for you all. Down here in not so sunny Florida, we're still battling the weather and the red tide. In the 12 years that we've lived down here, this is by far the worst summer we've ever seen. Not only is the rainy season "different" this year, the red tide has been horrific.

Good morning all, it's yet another Friday. I'm not quite sure where this week went, but "poof" it's gone.

So, yesterday they had their hopes up about attacking the All-time highs, but no, they couldn't pull any real attack together. Sure AMZN was up. Sure Google was up. But all in all, it wasn't a big win for the bulls.

Hi all, it's another day in wonderland. 

Yesterday they put in a long flat day. We didn't stray too far from the unchanged level. This morning they're picking up at the same place  they left off. The futures are statistically "unchanged" with the DOW up about 19 and the S&P up 2. But if you add in "fair value" we're really up 8 and ""0" respectively.

Hello all, welcome to hump day. 

So, yesterday the session was going along relatively well, and then "all hell" started breaking loose on the news wires. It seems that Elon Musk put out a tweet suggesting that he's thinking of taking TSLA private at 420 bucks a share.

Hello all, it's a new day. 

For no really good reason other than there wasn't any horrible news overnight, the futures have built on yesterdays gains. Early in the am, around 5:30 the futures were slightly green across the board. By 8:30 they were bright green with the DOW up 90, the S&P up 6 and the NASDAQ up 18.

Hello folks, welcome to Monday.

As always, I hope that your weekend was a pleasant one for you all. Down here, the big news that finally made headlines across the nation is our plague of red tide. This is the worst year since about 2006 for it, and it's been a huge problem. Siesta Key, which often is labeled the "best beach in the United States" was a ghost town last week, as the water is an ugly brown color, dead fish by the tens of thousands line the beach, and the stench has people retreating inland.

Good Friday morning to you all. Yes, another Friday. They come quick, don't they?

The DOW couldn't pull it off, but the S&P and especially the techs, put in a big fat green day yesterday.  AAPL hit a one trillion dollar market cap, and there were rainbows and unicorns abundant. 

We pulled the trigger on the QQQ's at 177.68, endured a little wiggle, and then watched it run to  179.53 for the close.
