Morning all, welcome to what could be a very interesting day. 

So the only thing being spoken of, is the virus and it's spreading. The President was on TV last night, trying to keep things calm, but it isn't really working. Consider things like this:

A Time Like No Other
I have a hunch that all throughout the ages, there have been periods of time where the people were convinced that they were living through something never seen before. There are multiple scenarios that would have suggested that, and while the Bible suggests there’s nothing new under the sun, I beg to differ somewhat.

Ecclesiastes 1:9, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

You all know the quote: 

December 7, 1941, a date which will live in infamy,  the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

For months on end I've been suggesting that we've been playing a game of musical chairs and that on any particular day the music could stop. While they have the momentum and the Central bank cash to paper over most problems, there's no question that we're in a massive bubble and every bubble meets its pin. Eventually.

Good morning all, welcome to Friday.

Just as we thought we were all in the clear, the power blipped out on us yesterday at 3 pm, and didn't come back until 9. I wasn't about to go back to the generators, and just waited it out. It's amazing how fast your home can go from about 77 degrees to 87 degrees when it's 110 degrees in the sun.

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday and even this is somewhat different.....

Last night wrapped up the Democratic convention. I listened to Hillary's speech, and while I'm biased against her, I tried to keep a level head and listen for substance.  Nope, I didn't get any. At one point it appeared like her hubby Bill had actually fallen asleep. I can't blame him.

We just wrapped up the Republican Conventions and it ended with a speech by Donald Trump. The left has gone apoplectic over the things that were said, and ended up calling it “dark” and “doom and gloom”. It was nothing of the sort.

Tom Brokaw had this to say...“Others looking in are going to see someone they will only think as a demagogue of some kind.” George Stephanopoulos, a former Democratic operative, echoed his colleague Chuck Todd: “He [Trump] painted a dark picture of where America stands today.” For emphasis, Stephanopoulos repeated, “And Martha Raddatz, a pretty dark speech.” Chuck Todd labeled, “I thought it was an extraordinarily dark speech.” Republican operative Nicolle Wallace lamented, “We are now represented as a party by a man who believes in protectionism, isolationism and nativism.”

Hi everyone, welcome back from your weekend.  As is my custom, I hope yours was as wonderful as it could be.  In the big picture this will mean absolutely nothing, but it is sort of "neat"to me.  The wife and I have a routine on Sunday's and in that routine part of it is that we take a 5 mile bike ride which terminates at Casperson Beach.  Once we make it to the park, we lock up the bikes and take about a one mile stroll down the beach and lay out our beach towels.  Casperson is the "shark tooth" capital of the country and I've literally found several hundred of them. For the most part the bulk of them are about the size of a grown man's thumbnail.

Hello everyone, welcome to another day of "as the world churns"

Last night Europe got rocked hard. That was after Japan got rocked hard.

So what's the issue? Well the problem is that there's a lot of worry that some of the biggest banks, especially Deutsche bank, could be on the verge of failing. And, because all the banking is interconnected, everyone's trying to figure out what kind of "contagion" would occur if a bank that big failed. All across Europe risk spreads are blowing out, as that very contagion fear sweeps the continent.  Spain, Italy, Portugal are all experiencing credit issues, and with Draghi talking about doing "all it takes" they're worried about negative rates making things even worse.

Morning all, we've made it to Friday in what is proving to be quite a bizarre week.

Last night Japan completely took everyone by surprise by announcing they were implementing NIRP.  What's NIRP?  Negative Interest Rate Policy.
