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.

Good morning folks, we've burned through another weekend. Hopefully it was a good one for you all?  Mine was pretty subdued to be honest with you, although Saturday evening-night, was a whole lot of fun. That's a story I'll tell at a different time!

NOTE>> The rehab center my Mom's in, called Saturday and requested that I come in Monday at 9:30 for some form of program they like family members to go through concerning people getting released. They have Mom scheduled for a Wednesday release, and I guess they want to try and "teach" me what she's going to need.

Hello all, it's a new day. 

For no really good reason other than there wasn't any horrible news overnight, the futures have built on yesterdays gains. Early in the am, around 5:30 the futures were slightly green across the board. By 8:30 they were bright green with the DOW up 90, the S&P up 6 and the NASDAQ up 18.

Hello everyone, it's Thursday. 

The bad news for the bulls is that the DOW futures are down150 and the S&P is down 14.  

The good news for the bulls is that the futures are WAY off of their lows. I saw the DOW down 202 and the S&P down 19 earlier this am. 

So what's this all about?
