Morning all, welcome to yet another Friday. The Speed at which they roll by is truly incredible.

Okay, down to business. You all know what happened yesterday. They were still dealing with the fall out over Facebook, and then of course the Fed's hiked rates a quarter point, and the icing was the 60 billion in tariff's that we are going to levy on China.

Morning all, welcome to Thursday. 

Okay, so we got our little rate hike, and Powell didn't push for more of them than the market already expected. So that's the market's "good" news. The bad news is that all this supposed growth we've gotten has been on the heels of ultra low rates, which spurred companies to borrow like mad and use that money to buy back shares.

Well, we didn't get hit as badly with the weather as they had suggested, but areas around us sure did. When one particular cell came ashore to the North of us, they recorded 889 cloud to ground lightening strikes in 9 minutes. Wow, that' s pretty heavy fire. We got some wind, rain and a few boomers, but nothing worth noting.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday. 

Yesterday.  Hmmm. What to think?  

Early in the session, it seemed like they were going to come in and buy the morning dip, and send us up to "flat". But after a brief surge higher, it sort of just evaporated, and as the morning progressed, they accelerated things to the downside. At one point the DOW was down 496 points and the S&P was down 51, when they finally decided to stop the bleeding and get us off those lows. So we ended the day down 335 and 39.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I truly hope it was a good one for you all. Down here in Florida, the weather God's smiled on us about as nicely as one could ever ask. Both Saturday and Sunday started out cool and brisk, not a cloud in the sky, and warmed up to that perfect mid 70's temp that everyone loves.  You don't know how much I wish that weather was the standard down here! But no, in a very short period of time, we'll be back to baking in 94 degrees and 85% humidity. So as you can imagine, we're "all about" enjoying this as much as we can.

Good morning all, and yes, somehow it got to be a Friday again. Whew! that was quick. 

Yesterday we were talking about the DOW and how it needed to break out of its sideways cone, if it was going to go on to make the move to challenge the all time highs. Well it was on it's way to trying that, at one point up over 240 points. But it started leaking air as the day wore on, we coasted into a mixed close. The S&P fell by 2, the NASDAQ by 15 and the DOW pulled off a 115 point gain.

Good day all, welcome to Thursday. 

Down here in "Sunny" Florida, I thought we were going to challenge the record low temperature last night.  The record low for March 14th in Sarasota FL was 38. Well, last night we got down to 41. 

That's a heatwave in Maine, but it's an abnormality in Florida.  You'd have to live here to understand it, but today I'll see people bundled up like they're ready to dogsled to the North pole. I'm not kidding, cold snaps here bring out parkas suitable for climbing mt. Everest.

Good morning everyone, welcome to hump day. 

Yesterday really got goofy. It was moving along in mirrorlike fashion of Monday, after a big pop at the open and then rolling over to go red. At one point we were up 197 points on the DOW.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday. I send prayers to my friends up on the Northeast, who are battling against the 3rd Nor'Easter to smash them.  There's folks up there that haven't had power in a week and they're in the midst of getting another foot of snow, and bone chilling cold. This March has certainly come in like a lion, and frankly it's time for the lamb to appear. 

Good luck up there folks

Hello everyone, welcome back from the weekend. As per the usual, I hope it was a great one for you. Down here in sunny Florida, the sun took a bit of a break and we had some cloudy, misty weather on Saturday. That lasted into Sunday morning, and then the "transition" happened. On Sunday, my mom ( who's 90 years old) asked me if I'd take  her to the super Walmart so she could get some things. When we went into the store, it was 67 degrees, cloudy and drizzling.
