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?

Hello all, welcome to another day. 

This morning I woke to something odd. The futures were a bit red.  In recent weeks, the futures are either completely flat or slightly green. But this morning I saw the DOW off about 70 and the S&P off about 7. 

I didn't even know if red was legal any more. ( Joke)

Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Just a quick note from the home front...my mom's doing pretty well, and thanks for all the well wishes.  While I'm not out of the woods yet, at least the worst is over. No matter who you are, when you're presented with the passing of a close relative, it's tough. Losing her last remaining sister was a body blow for her, but she's weathering it as best you could hope for.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a great weekend. Our Saturday was filled with our normal excursions to the farmers market, the grocer, etc. But Saturday night was special as we had friends come over to eat and watch the UFC pay per view fights. While the two "big" fights of the night were pretty sub par ( One was so boring, even the commentators were mocking it, and the headline fight was over in minutes of the first round) we still had a great night of conversation, food ( some cookies too) and entertainment.
