The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

9.20.2017 - Free Investing Newsletter is up! Bookmark

Hey folks, just a quick note that the latest edition of the free newsletter is up. Tonight we're talking about the madness/problem that is indeed North Korea, and then of course in the market section, we discuss the Fed's latest meeting.

Today the FOMC released their statement concerning lessening their balance sheet and what they see with rates. Then Yellen held a press conference to calm everyone down and get the market back into the green. Give it a read, it's worthy.

Good morning folks, welcome to Hump day, and of course the day that the FOMC tells us what they're going to be up to. Yes the little trolls at the Fed are going to wrap up their two day meeting and tell us what they chatted about. Will there be a rate hike? Nah. But I do expect them to at least hint around the edges concerning the reduction of their balance sheet. Wall Street probably won't care.

Good morning everyone, get ready for a wild open. 

6.14.2017 - The Fed's hiked rates today. Bookmark

 Yes  the FOMC hiked rates today. Does it matter? What's the ramifications? Why have so many big name investors been screaming about a market crash coming? Is the Fed going to hike us into recession? Are we really in a recession, but they've papered it over? We chat about all of this in today's free newsletter. Take a few minutes to peruse it and see what you think.

Chicken Little
 
The story of Henny Penny, also called Chicken Little, or sometimes Chicken-licken (not to be confused with “Finger-licken” from Kentucky Fried Chicken), the terrified little chicken convinced that the sky is falling and that life as we, or at least as chickens know it, is over... is so common that “the sky is falling!” and “Chicken Little” and related names have become bywords for fearmongering, and the often tragic results that occur.

Gooooood morning everyone, welcome to rate hike day. 

First off if you haven't heard, there's been some events overnight and this am.  In Washington, some Congressmen were meeting on a field to practice for tomorrow's Congressional baseball game and someone with a rifle started taking pot shots. The House Majority whip was struck, as was some other people. Obviously this is horrible news.

The .380

 

I knew it would happen, it always happens. Over the weekend while talking “off topics” in my last article, I had mentioned I had changed my personal concealed carry gun from a Ruger LCP to a Barretta Pico. It is chambered in .380. I should have started counting the seconds after it was sent, because I knew someone would write in and give me noise about carrying a .380 for self defense.  This was the first and most colorful of them. (exactly as I received it for special effect)

Morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Well, did you see it? The once very common late day magic levitation has returned! Yesterday the market was bouncing around at the low end of its range, mostly between say DOW + 40 and DOW + 65 points. Then exactly at 3:30 it hit. From 3:30 right into the close, everything just magically went higher.  The S&P gained a full 10 points in just 30 minutes. The DOW was pushing 70.  What was that all about?

Good morning all....we've made it to Wednesday.

At some point the world is going to call these Central Banks to task. 

For two weeks, members of the FOMC were out talking about the economy and rate hikes. Just ONE week ago James Bullard was out suggesting that not only are rate hikes on the table, he could see a move higher in APRIL.  With the bulk of them suggesting that hikes were pretty much imminent, everyone and his brother was looking for Yellen to be pretty Hawkish at her speech in NY yesterday.

Good morning everyone, welcome to the first day of "Fed" meetings. Today the FOMC meets behind closed doors to wreak what ever havoc they've got planned for us. We won't get their actual decision until tomorrow afternoon.

Yesterday the market made a dramatic "Vee" style reversal from the selling in the morning. After being down 100 points, they stopped the bleeding, and when Europe closed they started pouring in. By the time the day ended, we were up 100, instead of down 100.
