Good morning all. I guess today we'll see if I read the whole Thursday/Friday sell down wrong and it was just another in a long long string of "one day wonders" that just happened to stretch into two days.

Okay so yesterday they didn't want any part of a 9 day DOW losing streak and they made their point. After being up nearly 200 points, when the final bell rang, we had 150 DOW points showing and 15 on the S&P. It was a nice bounce, but it did come with a bit of a caveat. See, as we get near the close of business every day, the exchanges announce the "imbalances' to the buy or sell side. Often they're a few hundred million to the buy or to the close, which they try and "pair off" by the 4 pm bell. ( often it takes them a bit longer and that's why the closing price you see a 4 pm, might be a little different than say at 5 pm when it's all settled.)

It had to come and it looks like today it will.  We all knew there had to be a bounce, and I actually bought into the SPY yesterday in anticipation of it. But it didn't work, I stopped out.  I had thought seriously of buying back in at the close, simply because the market can't just go down every day, but I didn't tell you guys I'd try that, so...I didn't.

Good Morning all, welcome to the start of what could be an incredibly interesting week.

As you all know, Thursday evening brought us the decision by the UK to leave the EU, and it caused such an uproar that the DOW fell 610 points on Friday.  Then over the weekend, the back and forth dialog between differing opinions was simply staggering.

We heard that Scotland might try and stop the UK from Leaving. We heard that petitioners were pushing for another vote.  We heard that the EU was going to on one hand push them out quickly while on the other, doing what they could to make this a long drawn out process. We heard that England would go broke, we heard that England would thrive.  All in all, we learned what I said Sunday morning…we have no idea what comes next

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday and another crazy day.

Okay, so yesterday afternoon I laid out for you all that I thought the volume was big enough, the Advance/decline line ugly enough, the 52 week lows terrible enough...to consider a short term bottom. I wanted to get a piece of the bounce, and as luck would have it, shortly after I sent the 1 pm update, where the DOW had already bounced about 90 points off the low, it faded back down again. While it never got to -550 again, it did get down to about -500 and once again started up.

Hello everyone, welcome to another day....

Yesterday was interesting in a lot of ways. We opened big and green, then as we approached the European market close the volume want nuts and we faded all the way from up  150 to RED by a handful. Then the volume dried up, and we inched higher, going green by about 30 points near the 1 pm hour.

We were slightly green for the rest of the session, and then in the last half hour they picked up the momentum and we ended the day up 123 DOW points.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday and another episode of "how the world churns".

This morning we saw a textbook perfect, in your face example of what passes for our so called "recovery".  Knowing that the most important thing in the universe is keeping your stock price up, JNJ announced a 10 BILLION dollar stock buy back AHEAD of their earnings release. Can you imagine that? They wanted cushion the reaction to their earnings release by announcing a buy back ahead of their release.

Good morning all, and a good morning it is. Why the joy? Having gone through Hurricane Sandy and having our house washed away, and the lives of so many of our friends disrupted for years, I was feeling pretty sad for the folks from NC up to Long Island because the Hurricane Joaquin spinning in the Bahama's was looking to land somewhere along our coast.   But there was "one" model that suggested it would be pushed out to sea and not make landfall. That was the European model.

Morning everyone, welcome to 'hump" day. Let's get over it....

First I want to extend a prayer to all of you that live on the Coast from NC all the way up to Maine. The weather is throwing you folks a real drenching, with a lot of flooding probable. Models suggest the coast could see 20 - 25 foot waves all the way to Long Island by Sunday. Then the tropical storm brewing in the tropics is now a borderline hurricane and a ton of models suggest it's going to come ashore somewhere between NC and Maryland. That would be a 1-2 punch of enormous proportion. If you live there, please keep an eye on things closely, and I hope you've done some basic prepping for such an event.

Hello everyone, welcome to the world according to Bob. It's a scary place...

I don't know if many ( or any) if you listened to the speeches that were flying around the UN but I did and it is becoming ever more clear that the world is tired of US politics and hegemony. First off...the UN itself drives me nuts. This bunch of brain surgeons appointed Saudi Arabia to lead the Human rights council. Since then they've announced that they will kill a teen via crucifixion for mocking the king. Then of course as they continue to obliterate Yemen, they "mistakenly" blew up a wedding party, killing 130 innocent people. That's because almost no one can tell the difference between children dressed for a wedding and military/terrorist units with heavy arms.  ?
