Good morning everyone, welcome to a new day.

First off I want to just offer up a prayer for the families that will be suffering this morning as reports of a jet liner crash in Europe has probably taken the lives of all 150 people on board. That's a reminder of how fragile life can be, and it saddens us to the core.

Hello Everyone....

At 8 am the futures are statistically "flat" with the DOW down 2.

Yesterday we gained 102 points to a new all time high. Did I expect that? Nope. While I did figure they'd try and get us green after Monday's dip, I had no feeling that they'd get us "that green".

Good morning folks, welcome back from the Holiday.

Frankly... I don't know where to start.

Let's start with the Swiss vote. I'm on record saying that I thought the Swiss would come to their senses and pass the gold initiative. If you aren't familiar, here's the short version...when ever 100K people sign a petition the Swiss Government has to allow a vote on it. Some bright folks suggested that the Swiss return to a policy where 20% of their currency is backed by gold and the gold they own is repatriated from NY, France, etc and kept at home.

11.25.2014 GDP upgrade Bookmark

I'm trying not to be the bad guy, but these reports lately are beginning to make me scratch my head. Not long ago the Philly Fed posted a 40 reading. That was one of the strongest readings in decades. But yesterday the PMI report missed estimates and fell. Today the GDP gets upgraded from 3.5 to 3.9%, but at the very same time, small businesses are telling us that they don't see any growth, just tepid action.

Take all of these with a grain of salt folks.

11.20.2014 Global PMI's Crash Bookmark

Last night the Purchasing managers across the globe put out their recent statistics. Well the PMI (index) missed estimates in China, Japan and most of Europe. I don't think that is a surprise to anyone that actually listens to what is really happening in economies around the world.

Here we go again....

After four days of intense buying, the market was short term overbought, and quite stretched. It needed a pause day, and yesterday was it. They blamed oil, they blamed the strange shooting situation at the Canadian Parliament. But we tend to think they were excuses rather than reasons.

All night long the futures were soggy. Over in Europe most of the indexes were slightly red. But then they got the juice they needed.
