Good morning all, happy Thursday to you. 


No need to hash out yesterday.  With the buzz about impeachment reaching fever pitch, it was the reason ( or the excuse)  for a high volume sell off.  The SPY traded 172 million shares, the highest volume day we've seen in many months. Most of it to the downside.

Good morning all, welcome to Hump day. 

Well yesterday sure turned into a hot mess. The support level at 2120 that has been rock solid for months, gave away. Yes they did take us off the ultimate lows of the day, but let's be real...it was a failure for sure.  At the low of the day we were down to 2097 before the magic levitation kicked in and they ended the day with us at 2011.

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday.

Got your pop corn ready?  You should because it's going to be really interesting to see what they do next.

Demographics In View

Billions of dollars have been flowing OUT of the stock market funds in the first quarter of 2016.  Over 51 billion has been pulled out of mutual funds so far in 2016 and Lipper says that 3 billion more was yanked out in the week ending April 20th.  On top of that, we see Hedge funds have lost over 15 billion this quarter as folks are calling in for redemption's.

A lot of this is being blamed on the overall market volatility and that a lot of folks want out because of all the insanity we see with negative rates, horrid economic numbers, etc. I suggest there’s a lot of truth to that. This bull market is long in the tooth and is being propped up on life support. Many figure it’s time to get out. I agree.  But there’s something else in the works that most people haven’t thought about concerning fund flows. Frankly I think it’s a “big deal”.

Good morning all, welcome to another day of fun....

Let's start out with the basics. Yesterday I got the day totally wrong. I had expected them to "hold the line" for the day, but I certainly didn't expect to see the DOW up 170 in mid afternoon before a bit of profit taking ended the session with the DOW up 138.  Nope, I just didn't see that coming. My guess would have been for a green day of maybe 50 - 80 points.

Earnings Upon Us…

Four times a year, most companies produce their economic report for the previous quarter of business. This isn’t something new, they’ve been doing it since the idea of a structured company first began. But like most things, they’ve “morphed” into something much different than the standards set so many years ago. I’m not shy in saying that a very competent accountant overseeing companies in 1920 would have absolutely no clue how to figure out what the hell any modern company was even talking about.

So when these companies start releasing their earnings in bulk next week, just what are we actually hearing them tell us? Sometimes it isn’t as easy as just saying “oh that’s their earnings based on sales versus expenses”.  Thus I think a bit of history lesson needs to be taught here….

Morning folks, it's Wednesday.  Is that good or bad?

I'm sure you all know what happened yesterday. The market started out ugly and then got uglier as the day wore on.  When it was all over we had lost more than 250 DOW points, and the S&P had lost all of its nearby support levels.

Was there any one single reason for it? No, not at all...it was a classic combo platter of over valuations, the end of QE, some earnings warnings, bad global news, and a host of other items that added up to a sour mood.
