Good morning all, it's another Friday and this one in front of a 3 day weekend. So that makes it a bit more "interesting" to say the least. 

Okay, so yesterday they sold us down for 440 DOW points and 50 S&P's, before the directive went out to the Algo-bots that this market MUST NOT close under the 200 day. So, later in the session, we started to see things warm and up and sure enough, they got the 200 day back on the DOW. Isn't that just amazing?

Hello all, welcome to another day of abject madness. 

The futures are in vomit mode this morning. While off their lows, we have the DOW down 220 at 8 am.  

What's the issue today? Nothing new, just rising tensions over trade with China. Each side is digging deeper, and that's not healthy for either side.

Hello everyone, welcome to hump day. Depending on where you live, it's either 80 degrees already, or it's snowing. I just got a photo sent to me by some folks in the Denver area, where there's snow on the ground. Isn't it like almost Memorial day? 

The weather is as weird as this market.

Good morning folks, are you all strapped in? Good, because once again we're going to get tossed around. 


Yesterday the big bug-a-boo was that the US was staunchly against Huawei and all manner of tech companies said they'd stop supporting the company's products. Down we went.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. Was it a good one for you? I hope so. 

Ours was very enjoyable, especially Sunday when I did my second "bike to the beach" since my PE's and DVT. The highlight of the day wasn't the ride, nor the one mile walk on the beach, or even the sun and waves. The star of the day was an Osprey that alit on a palm tree stump not 10 feet from us, and sat there for 35 minutes, completely un-phased by us.

Another Friday is upon us, what will this one bring? 

Well the games have begun. What games? You know the one's, like where the market is falling like a rock and then we hear jawboning about the "trade talks going well," and we soar for 300 points.

So, the futures are big and green this morning. Why is anyone's guess. Global markets are running around like the proverbial chickens without heads, ducking and jumping over every perceived good or bad. 

Take Walmart's earnings report this morning. They beat the estimates, but revenues fell. Then they jawboned about comp sales rising, yet if you look closely, it wasn't more people buying more stuff, it was the same people buying higher priced items. That's called inflation, but hey, Uncle Sam says there isn't any.

Good morning all, welcome to hump day. 

Yesterday as you probably know the market staged a bounce after the 600 point slaying it took on Monday. But I wasn't terribly impressed with it. Why? Well, the volume was punk, and when the session was over, we were only up 207 DOW points. That's a lot less than half of what we lost Monday.

Good morning all, welcome to another Tuesday. 

You all know what happened yesterday. We had the biggest one day sell off of 2019. While we didn't close at the lows, we didn't close far from them.

Good morning all, welcome back from your Mother's day weekend. I hope it was a great one for you and all the mom's.

Ours was wonderful. Saturday wasn't terribly special, we did our normal running around, shopping, etc. The highlight of the day was a really nice Saturday evening service at a local church we like. It was a pretty moving message.  Afterwards,  I did get to watch some good UFC fights , so that was great. Actually Saturday was pretty darned good.
