Hello folks, welcome to Tuesday. 

Today starts the two day Fed meeting which in my opinion will end tomorrow with a quarter of a point rate hike. In more normal times, the fear of a rate hike would have the market's diving, but as I mentioned Sunday, in this atmosphere of Central bank liquidity, momentum, tax strategies and performance chasing, they'll "probably" ignore this hike.

Good morning everyone and welcome back from your weekend. Was it full of running around doing Holiday shopping? Or was it "same ole, same ole" for you? Down here in Sunny Florida "it" finally happened. The same cold front that brought snow all the way from Atlanta up through Maine made a stop down here first. No, we didn't get snow, but saturday was rainy and windy and then Saturday night the temps dropped like a rock.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day.

So, what was yesterday? Who knows. Maybe the Mueller investigation rattled them. Maybe Tony Podesta stepping down from his own lobbying firm got them thinking this is wider and deeper than they expected. Or maybe it was just a pause day, because Friday was insane?  I'm sure we'll find out.  In any event, we lost 85 DOW points and 8 S&P's, as the market simply didn't have any traction at all.

Happy Tuesday to ya.....

Yesterday we closed out the day flat.  The DOW slipped by 22, the S&P by 3. It was another in a long string of low volume pause days.  I'm not positive but I think it was the second lowest volume day of the year.

Hello all, welcome to Fed day.  Yes, today is the day that we'll see our first rate hike in exactly one year.  

Last December, no one thought they'd hike rates, but I continued to say that they would and for just a couple reasons. First, the .25 basis point hike would do nothing and second...they had talked about hiking for so long that if they didn't do it, people might actually start laughing at their analysis of things.

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday, which just happens to be "jobs" day.

As you can imagine, all the financial outlets are focused like a laser on this report as they all feel it will influence the Fed's decision about rates. So I'm sort of confused here. Am I supposed to be cheering a weak number so that we have zero rates for ever, or am I supposed to cheer the idea of more people actually getting  job??
