Volatility Strikes


Here’s an interesting tid-bit:  The S&P 500 went 94 days without a +/-1% change and then had 5 in 8 days.


That pretty much sums up what has been going on over the past few days. Since the big plunge and bounce on Monday, we’ve seen the market travel up and down over 1000 points combined. I didn’t take the time to add up the swings today, but suffice it to say, it was wild.

Friday? Yes it is. How did it happen so fast?  

So yesterday was the second day this week where the indexes put in some really wicked swings. From up 180 to RED and then back to being up 140, the DOW was really putting on a spectacular show of volatility.

Hello everyone, welcome back from your weekend.

Mornin' everyone, it is already an interesting day.

Early this morning the futures were pretty green. But they took a nose dive on word that the Greeks had indeed gone to the IMF to ask for a delay in their payment schedule which was denied. From that moment on, the futures have been pretty red.

It is indeed earnings season and the earnings keep coming.  Last night it was sort of funny, Netflix announced earnings that actually missed by a mile, but because their subscriber base grew, they were up  60 dollars per share. Go figure.

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.

1.14.2015 Even More Volatility? Bookmark

Yesterday I talked about the insane volatility we've been seeing and boy has that carried through into today. In the past 27 hours, we've seen the market fall almost 700 points. Even here at the 2 pm time slot the DOW is off 305 points.  But we're seeing volatility and crazy moves everywhere. Just a few hours ago, the 30 year hit its ALL TIME LOW yield. Can you imagine that?

Our Newsletter, "The Financial Intelligence Report" will be posted to the web site at about 6 pm, so please stop by and read that. We're going to be talking about Central bank frustrations, the Fed's view on rates, all sorts of things. It should be a good read.

This Halloween season brings back some pretty nasty memories for me. It was two years ago this week, when Super Storm Sandy landed dead center in the Brigantine Inlet of NJ, just 3 miles from my house. That evening and the following 3 weeks were some tough times for a lot of my closest friends.  I lost my home completely as did many of my neighbors on the bayfront. But even folks living 5 and 6 blocks inland on the lagoons had water 4, 5 even 6 feet high crashing through their homes. It's certainly a memory that haunts me during the Halloween season. Even now, exactly two years later, many folks still don't understand the struggles a lot of people are still going through in my town.

Friday and not a day too soon. I'm sure that all those folks who figured that stocks only go up, have had quite the shock to their system over the past few days as they discovered that they can actually drop too.

I made it quite clear that while I figured on a sluggish day yesterday, I had NO CLUE we'd fall 300 points. I was thinking something like 50 - 70 as they "digested" Wednesday's move higher. But no, I wasn't even close. In a 7 - 1 ratio, they sold more stocks than they bought and the end result was a pretty ugly day for the bulls.
