Hello all,

You all know what happened, they walked back a 600 point drop. Then for a while overnight, the futures were really on fire. But this morning, the shine had worn off and at 7 am the DOW futures were red. 

Now at 8:25 the DOW  implied open is for + 44 points.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a great one for you. 

Down here, it was "okay" but not great. Saturday my wife had an industry "event" to  go to, where people in the Healthcare industry set up their tables and wares, and explain to people what they do. She was to be there all alone in her "booth" from 8:30 to 3 PM. So, I sort of surprised her. I got my running around done by noon and my younger son drove me the hour + to the event.  She was indeed surprised to see us!

 Another Friday. But not just an ordinary Friday, it's jobs Friday. 

There's a bit of push/pull going on in "jobs" land.  The initial jobless claims this week fell to levels not seen in 50 years. That's good news.

Wag the Dog

 

First off a note that should make you all pretty happy. This letter will be much shorter than my usual rants. Evidently I hurt my wrist pretty bad Sunday, and had to go to the urgent care on Tuesday to get it looked at. I’m pretty resistant to pain, but this became unbearable.   So, I’m in a soft wrap cast, and typing is, well, frustrating. ( and painful)

Hello everyone, welcome to another day. 

Well, yesterday ended up the way I thought it might, but it didn't "get there"  the way I thought it would.  What I wanted was a big plunge right at the open that peeled off 300 or more points, and then a rip roaring "Vee" style recovery. Instead we actually opened green, then rolled over and slowly fell 500 points. Then, we slowly started working our way back.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I truly hope it was a great one for you all. 

Ours was VERY good.  Our "bestest" friends from NJ came into Sarasota  Friday night and we got to see them on Saturday evening. We enjoyed some cocktails and conversation, and made plans for Sunday. Then, on Sunday it got even better. Another NJ friend who moved to the Clearwater area last year came down, and all of us enjoyed a nice brunch, followed by hours of reminiscing and friendship.  There's nothing better for the soul than getting together with "true" friends, and it was a great weekend. Although the weather was horrendous, with heavy downpours on and off all day, it didn't matter a bit. We were in their rented condo, and just enjoying the conversation.

Good Morning all.  Welcome back from your Veterans day weekend. 

As always, I hope it was a great weekend for you all. Down here in Sunny FL, it was a good time, especially Sunday. The VA home in Port Charlotte put on a really wonderful ceremony and "BBQ" for all the Vets, and because my wife does business with them, we were invited to it.  That was very special.

Good morning all.  Looking at the futures at 7:30 am, it seems the world got grumpy again. But before we get into that, let's talk pot for a minute. 

For any of the newer folks, a quick review. Late last summer, I had a hunch that the pot stocks were going to pay off, so we took positions in a few of them. Well, they worked very well, and we sold some half positions early this year.

Morning all. 

The Algo-bots ganged up on each other yesterday, and didn't quite know how to stop it. The end result of course was that we ended the day down over 800, with the S&P down 90.  That's a pretty big drop. 

After hours, the futures were all over the map, and early this morning they were really blood red. At 6 am, we had the DOW indicated down another 360.

Hello all, we've made it to Friday. 

Yesterday was really something to remember. The country was transfixed by the Kvanaugh/Ford testimony. In fact, so many people tuned in to those hearings, that volumes on Wall Street fell by approximately 50% during some of it.
