Hello all, happy Wednesday to you. 

Nothing says chop more than gaining 185 points Monday, then puking up 113 of them on Tuesday.  Monday they were just happy that nothing went boom over the weekend and Tuesday they were sad because the great vampire squid that is Goldman Sachs, didn't steal as much money as they hoped.  After the bell, IBM whiffed and they were trading sharply lower after hours. I think I saw them down 8 bucks or so.

Good Morning all, welcome to the start of what could be an incredibly interesting week.

As you all know, Thursday evening brought us the decision by the UK to leave the EU, and it caused such an uproar that the DOW fell 610 points on Friday.  Then over the weekend, the back and forth dialog between differing opinions was simply staggering.

We heard that Scotland might try and stop the UK from Leaving. We heard that petitioners were pushing for another vote.  We heard that the EU was going to on one hand push them out quickly while on the other, doing what they could to make this a long drawn out process. We heard that England would go broke, we heard that England would thrive.  All in all, we learned what I said Sunday morning…we have no idea what comes next

Morning everyone, welcome to more strange times....

You probably all know what happened yesterday. At one point we were down 470 DOW points and well over 45 on the S&P. But a late day "save", probably engineered by the Central planners, cut those losses in half.

Market Top?

Thursday was an ugly market day. Friday was considerably uglier. Then Monday happened.  I’m sure you all know what took place by now. Right after the open the DOW fell 1089 points in a “flash crash”.   What was that all about?

Let’s do a bit of recent history. Since February of this year the market has wiggled “sideways” in a “box” so to speak. We had an S&P top at about 2117 and a bottom at about 2040.  So for months on end we bounced along inside that range, generally running higher for 2,3 or 4 days and then selling back down for 2, 3 or 4 days. Over and over, wash/rinse/repeat.

What Choice?

I want to take a quick break from making any more 2015 predictions, so that we can talk about some “push back” I’ve been getting from a few folks. That’s GREAT because I love a good heated discussion, so let’s jump right in.  Right now my view for 2015 is that we get one small rate hike of just one quarter of one point and NO new QE.

Unless you’re one of the 1%, you know things aren’t so hot. The economy is indeed surviving, but it’s artificial. The term “zombie” comes to mind, as it is being kept artificially alive. They’ve kept it afloat by a multitude of tricks and gimmicks, and most people forget just how persuasive the manipulations have become.

1.12.2015 Insane Chop Continues Bookmark

We've seen one of the volatile starts to a new year than I can remember. I've been doing this for about 20 years,and I'm hard pressed to think of a time when we've seen this much up and down chop this early in the year. Just a quick look at last week sums it up. We fall some, then "boom" up we go for over 300. But that sells off on Friday by 170 points.
