Hello all, welcome to Friday.

So, it's jobs day and the numbers are out. According to the bean counters, we created 201K jobs in August. The unemployment rate remained unchanged. Wages rose a bit, but June and July were revised lower.

Naturally I can't let a jobs report go by without mentioning the "Birth/Death" model, which this time injected 104K jobs into the report. Jobs that most likely, don't exist.

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.

Good morning all, welcome back from your two day hiatus. I hope it was an exceptional weekend for you all. 

Ours wasn't exceptional, but it was good enough. Saturday had me doing some of the normal things we do, like restocking the food shelves, and getting the oil changed. But Saturday night we managed to hit a sports bar and grille that was recommended to us as "having great food, great prices and a fun atmosphere".  Well it was all of that, and we'll be going there again for sure.

Good morning all, it's Friday. Again. 

So yesterday was an interesting show. A nice fat open, that looked pretty good, then a nasty swoon that took all that green away and for all intents, looked like we were going to  roll over red again. But no, they halted the slide and started  another low volume creep higher. It became impressive, and we ended the day with the DOW up 181 and the S&P up 23.

Hello all. In a way it feels like yesterday was a Sunday and I'm welcoming you back from the weekend. But no, it's simply a Thursday morning after a big Holiday. So, how was it? Did you have a fun day, full of BBQ, a few beers and good times with friends and family? Or was it just another day?

Hello all, and yes it's another Friday already. Frankly I'm having a hard time coming to grips with the idea that we're already in May. 

So yesterday was what exactly? Test day, again? We bobbled around the DOW 200 day for a while, then we plunged through it big time. But they weren't ready for it to roll over for good and they clawed the DOW from a low of - 393 points, to being green by 5.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

I won't rehash the whole thing, as you all probably know what happened yesterday.  From down 600 early on, we ended the day up 260.  Quite the reversal.

Hello everyone, welcome to yet another Friday. 

Another wild day of big dips and big recoveries.  I had a hunch we'd see that, as this is what I said at the 1:15pm update yesterday:

So, we're supposed to get the Presidents declaration on tariff's this afternoon. I imagine that as they leak info, we'll see some more pops and drops. But I also think that the tariff situation will not be as ugly as many think and that they'll end up liking the final product

So it's  Friday. It's been an odd week. 

I woke up this morning to no internet. Okay, no problem I'll just use my phone for a "hot spot". So I get my laptop, but for some reason the power cord isn't making contact with the computer. Boom, my laptop goes dark, battery exhausted.  Swell. I'm on backup plan number 3. If this fails, I will have no way of doing anything today.  This very well could be the last update of the day folks.

Hey everyone we've made it to Friday. That seemed pretty quick to me!

Okay, so yesterday the incredible bubble market expanded even more. All day I heard analysts almost gushing about how wonderful things are. Yet to a tee, I didn't hear a one of them mention  that the Central banks had printed 2.1 trillion dollars in 2017. I guess they didn't get that memo?
