6.5.2020

Remember yesterday when the 600 billion Euro pump from the ECB really didn't do anything for the market? No worries, because this morning the futures were up 300+ at 6 am. 

Why are we up so big? Well the excuse you'll hear is that we're up because they're hoping the jobs report won't be as bad as feared. But let's get real. The ONLY reason we're up is because of that tsunami of Central bank money. From Japan to the ECB to our Fed to the Swiss, there's simply money everywhere.

Hello all, and a good morning to ya!

Okay, so like a rerun of groundhog day, the futures last night were deep in the red. Then, right at 3 am, "boom" up they went. I find it interesting that 3 am is when the ECB "opens for business"

Hello everyone, Welcome to Thursday.  

Things are really heating up in "earnings" land. But then again, things are heating up everywhere. 

First let's mention our Fed.

7.24.2019 - The Triple Play Bookmark

The latest issue of the Financial Intelligence Report is up, and in this one we discuss the concept that we could be looking at 3 separate "market friendly" events starting Thursday the 25th. We have the ECB making statements about policy, then Friday we have a delegation going to China to discuss trade, and then next Wednesday we get our own Fed moving on rates. 

 

I discuss the options and no pun intended, how we're using options to play it.

The Triple Play?

 

Hey, before we get into today’s article, I want to pass along something that I find interesting. Maybe it can help you or a family member.

Good dawn everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday just couldn't quite get its act together. There were a few brief flurries higher, but all in all, it just couldn't pull off any traction. I especially didn't enjoy the roller coaster in the last 40 minutes or so. 

I didn't want to hold my positions into the close if the DOW was down over 200 or the S&P was down over  18. Those last 20 minutes of the day saw them lose those levels, then attempt a pretty decent bounce, lose it again and finally end the day just barely above those levels.

Public Service Announcement
 
As you all know, I like nothing better than to ‘help folks out” and over the years I’ve written a lot about such things as disaster prep, home security, self defense, etc. Over the past several years, I’ve written a couple times about emergency communications, and even had some “ham” operators in studio when I was doing my radio show a couple years back.

Morning all. 

This is not how I wanted my day to start. As I mentioned to you all on Monday, my Uncle Rob is losing a battle with cancer. Last night things got worse, and I think the stress really weighed on my mom. The poor gal was up all night, coughing and hacking. That's disturbing for an 89 year old, and she's not doing very well this am.  I suspect that I'll be taking her to the doc's today. 

Okay, so the futures are green at 8:00 am. That's pretty interesting because of the news we got out of Europe.

Hey Folks, the latest Free Investing Newsletter is posted. In this one, we talk about "This guy Trump" Is he good? Is he as bad as Robert De Nero says? Wasn't the North Korea thing worth something? Or are the liberal leftists right, and he "gave away too much for nothing concrete in return?
 

I think those people are nuts. Are you telling me that on the very first time a sitting US President meets with the Leader of NK, they should have 70 years worth of hostilities worked out, a timeline for denuking, a panel of investigators, etc? Give me a break. How about fist things first?? How about just getting to the table without killing each other??  

 

So, we talk about that. Then in the Market commentary, we talk about the Fed's hiking rates, and what Powell had to say in his Q&A press conference. He was definitely more "hawkish", but the market gave him a bit of a pass. However on Thursday, Mario Draghi and the ECB are supposed to start laying out their plans to taper their own QE programs. Is the market going to accept that as well? We talk about that and a lot more, so give it a read.

Hello all, are you ready for another installment of "this rising market?"  Because judging by the futures, we're about to see another big up day. 

Or not.
