Mornin' all, and yes, it's happening again. 

303 points to the downside yesterday, before a major reversal off the lows. So what doo we see this morning? Well, after the bell last night CSCO beat their earnings, and then this morning WalMart beat their earnings. The combo of the two, along with a pause in the Turkey news helped. But it was also aided by something I warned you all about.

Hey everyone, welcome to Wednesday.

Yesterday it was my thought early on that they'd get us green and it would indeed last the day. Well that happened. Despite a shaky start, they moved in quickly to stabilize things and by mid afternoon, they had the DOW up 140 and the S&P up 21. We closed off those levels, but not by much. The DOW went out + 112, the S&P went out + 18.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday.

Early on this morning the futures were pretty flat, and then Home Depot released their earnings. If what they put out is actually real, it was a good report, maybe very good. Year over year comp's were up strongly and they even raised guidance for the year. That got the futures all hot and bothered, and from just being "flat", they roared to where the DOW was up over 100 and the S&P was up 11.

Good morning all, it's yet another Friday. I'm not quite sure where this week went, but "poof" it's gone.

So, yesterday they had their hopes up about attacking the All-time highs, but no, they couldn't pull any real attack together. Sure AMZN was up. Sure Google was up. But all in all, it wasn't a big win for the bulls.

Hello all, welcome to hump day. 

So, yesterday the session was going along relatively well, and then "all hell" started breaking loose on the news wires. It seems that Elon Musk put out a tweet suggesting that he's thinking of taking TSLA private at 420 bucks a share.

Good Friday morning to you all. Yes, another Friday. They come quick, don't they?

The DOW couldn't pull it off, but the S&P and especially the techs, put in a big fat green day yesterday.  AAPL hit a one trillion dollar market cap, and there were rainbows and unicorns abundant. 

We pulled the trigger on the QQQ's at 177.68, endured a little wiggle, and then watched it run to  179.53 for the close.

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?

Good morning everyone, we've made it to a new month. This year is certainly soaring along. 

So, yesterday the market started out in the premarket looking like it was going to be a soggy day. But then that "headline" hit, suggesting the Chinese want to re-open trade talks and avert a trade war. So, the indexes went nuts, and we put in a very green day. 

But this morning, things look different.

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)

Hi all...

Oh look! The futures are up big time. What is it now? The same thing it's been for weeks, the "on again, off again" trade war stuff. 

Yesterday we fell 200 points over the US suggesting it would put an additional 200 billion worth of tariffs on China, and traders feared retaliation. But then overnight, things got quiet and China did NOT lash out with a retaliatory strike, they simply mumbled that they'd review our latest move and make the appropriate reaction.
