Good morning all!  

I'm having some fits with my Internet this morning. I noticed the Comcast folks driving around the area last evening and this morning my connectivity is pretty hit or miss. Let's hope I don't go down here while I'm trying to post.

Good morning everyone, we've made it to another Friday. Is it me or do they just roar on by faster and faster?  It sure seems like this week was a blur

Good morning everyone, welcome to what's sure to be an interesting week.  It was already an interesting start to the week for me, as I went round and round with Comcast

It just gets more curious by the day. After literally leading the charge for the Brit's to leave the EU, Boris Johnson has now announced he's stepping down and won't run for Prime Minister of the UK. Go figure.

6.24.2016 - History is Made! Bookmark

History is being made today folks. Despite doing all they could to rig the British vote, the people had overwhelmed them and have decided to LEAVE the European Union. This is indeed big news.

Not because it's going to fundamentally change the economics in England as the elitists have suggested would happen; but because the whole European Union "test tube" could be on the verge of unraveling.

The EU was like a pilot program for a one world centrally planned government. They figured if they could cobble 28 different "tribes" together and make it work, they could try the entire world. But it hasn't gone well. Greece, Spain, Italy, and Portugal are broke. England just said "stick it" we're tired of Brussels telling us what we can do. This is indeed a very big step.

Hello all, welcome to Wednesday. 

So.....yesterday we had Yellen chatting with Congress and today we get day two of the event. Chances are pretty strong that she's not going to say anything new today, so she should be a non event. 

The one thing that is still an "event" is the British vote on leaving the EU. That is the big talk of the day, as they continue to try and measure the polls. So far it is actually too close to call, and the market will react to each and every news headline that suggests a stay or leave.

Jobs Galore?

 

On Friday we got the non farm payroll report, and boy…if the powers that be ever wanted to paint something to  look perfect, this was their Rembrandt moment. Not only did the headline number beat the estimates of a gain of 235K by coming in at 257K; they went back and did some of the most aggressive “revisions” to prior reports that I’ve ever seen.

Let me paint the picture for you. According to our Government bean counters the last few reports have shown the most job gains in 17 years. They say that wage growth was the best since 2008, as they told us wages grew by 0.5%. The BLS did revisions to the entire year of 2014, and remember the “polar vortex” last January? They said at the time we only got 144K jobs. Now they say that looking back, it was really 247K.  But that was nothing compared to what they did to November. Now they say November posted a gain of 465K jobs.  That’s the most monthly gains since the tech bubble boom of the late 90’s. A time when there really were jobs galore.

Yesterday I opened the day by saying we might have to tighten up our seatbelts. Today it looks like we might have to snug up our shoulder straps too.....

The fall out from the Swiss decision yesterday to unleash the peg from the Euro is still sweeping around the globe and the fall out is already starting. I mentioned to you all that this was going to create issues, and sure enough we are hearing of two currency brokers already that have declared insolvency over this. There will be more to come.

Hello everyone, welcome to Wednesday....

Yesterday afternoon I said  "But this is the age of insane volatility, and who knows what the last two hours will bring. I won't be surprised if we jump 150, or fall for another hundred" 

Well what we got was more wild swings. Consider the day as a whole. We were up 284 points in the morning. Then we fell all they way back, not ONLY to red... we plunged 140 points red, before they rushed us back up and we came within a dozen points of going green again.  We ended the day with the DOW off 27.

Good morning everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend, and the weather wasn't too ugly for you. Last week I had a terrible bout of the flu, which no doubt knocked me for a loop. But by Sunday I figured I was well enough to at least take our walk along the beach. Wow, I couldn't believe how much that virus took out of me. Just a mile into the walk, I had to stop and sit down. I was just exhausted.  (we generally do two miles minimum)

So we stopped where we were, got some sun, and then meandered back at a leisurely pace.  It was worth it, it was a beautiful day.
