Hello all, welcome to another day of "as the market churns" 

We figured that the market would hug the flatline yesterday and it did just that. After a rocky open, we moved back up to the flat line and wobbled around it all day. When it was over, the DOW had lost 6, the S&P gained 4. But that's a tiny bit misleading because of the way the DOW is weighted. The fall in NKE was worth 28 red points. So as you can see, if NKE didn't whiff on earnings, the DOW would have been green too

Hey folks, the new edition of our free investing newsletter is posted and in this one, we discuss just why the big push to continue letting so called "refugee's" into Sweden, France, Germany, etc. Does it make sense when the fact is a lot of these so called refugee's are men of 18 - 35 years, and tend to be militant? Does it make sense to invite ever more of them into your nation when the police say there are areas called "no go zones" that are so horrible they won't go there? 

Does it make sense to invite more when the incidence of rape in Sweden is up several hundred percent? Or that in Germany, housewives are afraid to go out at night?  Of course not. So why do they do it? We discuss that in today's free investment newsletter, along with the market plunge of Tuesday and the jitters over the healthcare vote.  We show you why a group of elitists have gone along with this "invasion"

Why Does This Happen?
 
I want to be in a good mood. I really do. I've got a great wife, two good kids, and I like what I do. In fact, my wife, who's been connected to the medical industry for over 25 years, has bought a home healthcare business in Punta Gorda, FL.  For the first time in her life, instead of working for someone else, she'll be working for herself. So obviously I want the future to go along well. I really do.
 
But I'm also not a couch potato sitting there listening to propaganda pushed at me by ABC, CBS, MSNBC, etc. I know what's going on around the world, and as much as we'd all like to sit back and figure that Trump's going to do good things and help rebuild some part of America, the future is fraught with problems. Big ones.

Decision day. 

I'm sure that most of you are aware that the vaunted "108 days without a 1% fall" has  been snapped. Yesterday the markets put on a pout party, starting shortly after 10 am and it never recovered.  The DOW dropped 237, the S&P fell 24. 

We lost the "box" we'd been trading in. The floor of the box on the DOW was about 10750. We closed below it. The floor on the S&P was 2350. We fell below it.

Good morning all, happy Tuesday to you. 

We are going to hope that today brings us a bit more excitement.  Yesterday was like the last 15 sessions...hugging the flat line, and going nowhere fast. How flat is this market? Well, except for the times when the Central bankers have "pushed the market", check this...

Good morning all, welcome to a new week and the first days of Spring!   I trust your weekend was wonderful and you all had a lot of fun things to do. 

The good news down here in Sarasota was that we had two picture perfect days. 75 - 77 degrees,and virtually not a cloud in the sky both days. The downside, was that it was very, and I mean very windy. 20 - 25 almost constant with a couple higher gusts tossed in. So as the wife and I were debating if we were going to go biking, or hiking... a friend called and said he was going to go King Mackerel fishing off the skyway pier. I'd heard of Don's technique but had never seen it done, we figured we'd do the 4 mile walk on the pier and see how he rigs up for those kings from the bridge

3.18.2017 - Selling Puts, the how and why Bookmark

Today's free investment newsletter is posted and today we do an in-depth tutorial about selling puts. We discuss what a put is, and why someone would want to sell a naked put, versus buying a put. We discuss the risks, the rewards and a couple ways to play it.  Like any investment that offers an oversized return, there's an oversized risk, but that risk can be managed properly. 

So if you've ever seen the commercial where the broker and his client are talking and the broker says "well, we might consider selling a put", and the client says "That sounds interesting".... you'll find out what's interesting about it in this weeks free investing newsletter.

The Commercial/Selling a Put
 
I got an email the other day from a gent who was watching TV, and a commercial came on. In that “financial” based commercial, there was a conversation between a client and what appears to be either his broker, or advisor. In the flow of conversation, the advisor says to the client, “well we might consider selling a put...”  to which the client says something like “that’s an interesting idea.”

Happy St. Patrick's day everyone.   I very much wish to hope you all the best for your "Holiday".  I read some astounding figures about how much corned beef and cabbage will be cooked up this weekend and it was truly amazing. My wife's half Irish, and yes...at some point this weekend I too will be engaging in some.  ( Note.... If you take a nice slice of corned beef before you drown it in water and the spices, and put it in your smoker (If you have one) it makes a darned tasty snack)

Good morning everyone. Welcome to post hike day. 


So we got the hike, and the market moved higher on it. We suspected that would be the result simply because of past experience with things that would naturally be thought of as "not market friendly"
