Morning all. 

Well that was rude. Yesterday the market was doing its low volume attack on the 50 day moving averages. Although the volume was indeed punk, a lot of things were moving in a lot of sectors. It looked like they might succeed in finally breaching the 50 days, and possibly putting on a sustainable run.

Moving Parts
 
It’s really hard to keep up. Every day there appears to be some new “fret” or some new development to think about. Consider this:
 
Last week the market was in a funk, as they blamed the mess on the China Tariff’s and how we’re probably going to be in a trade war. I held no such belief, and suggested that Trump is just being Trump. He tosses out outlandish ideas, see’s what gets the best reaction and works with it.

Morning all, Let's see if today is a bit more friendly than yesterday. Between a late night on Monday, and then the internet outage on Tuesday, it just wasn't my day. But a good nights sleep and a functioning office this morning appears to have put things back in proper order

Ethanol, the Problem
 
The other day I wrote a piece about dealing with the heat of Florida during a power outage, where the temp might be 94 degrees and the Humidity over 85%. I mentioned that a good gas generator, and a small window air conditioner can indeed get you through some rough nights.

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new day and a new week.  Hopefully you had a great weekend celebrating mothers day!   As you can imagine, our normal Sunday event of biking or hiking got sidelined this week.  When I asked the wife what she'd most like to do on her Mother's day, she replied "I've still got a handful of gift cards from Christmas I'd like to use."  So, I played chauffeur for the day. We hit the mall, we hit Bed Bath and Beyond, we hit Macy's, we hit Kohls.... and she had a pretty good day of Mom shopping. Good for her.  What ever was highest on your list...I hope your kids/spouse made your day wonderful!

Insurance
 
There’s some things that I know well enough to be considered in the class of expert. There’s some things that I know less about than your average 5 year old. We’re all similar in that.  There’s things you know so well you take for granted doing it, or teaching it, and other things that confound and confuse you.
 
This entire “healthcare/insurance” thing is one that completely and honestly boggles my mind.  For instance, let me  use this as an example....

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

So yesterday the market was hugging the flat line for most of the day, and then late in the session oil puked, and fell by the most in over a year. That got everyone's attention and they scrambled to take some stock off the table. This morning oil is again a bit weak. So we've got WTI at 49.07.

Good morning all!  HEY YOU GUYS.... do not forget it is Valentine's day!  If you have a significant other, by all means make him/her happy with a small token of how much you appreciate them!

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 folks, welcome to 2017.  I figure it will be sometime in maybe February before I stop writing 2016 on things.
