Hello all, welcome to another day. 

This morning I woke to something odd. The futures were a bit red.  In recent weeks, the futures are either completely flat or slightly green. But this morning I saw the DOW off about 70 and the S&P off about 7. 

I didn't even know if red was legal any more. ( Joke)

Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

Just a quick note from the home front...my mom's doing pretty well, and thanks for all the well wishes.  While I'm not out of the woods yet, at least the worst is over. No matter who you are, when you're presented with the passing of a close relative, it's tough. Losing her last remaining sister was a body blow for her, but she's weathering it as best you could hope for.

WOW.  That's all I can say about the incredible "fight" going on between Trump 'liker's" and Trump "Haters".  According to the haters, Trump was Treasonous yesterday at his meeting with Putin and he belives Putin more than his own Intelligence people, and yada yada yada.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a great one for you all. My Saturday was filled with "running around" as the wife is gathering things to take with her on her trip to spend a week with her father in NJ. With her mom already having passed, she really enjoys her yearly visit with her dad. So, we were getting her geared up for that. (NOTE>> She flies out Tuesday, but it shouldn't interrupt my usual posting times)

Venezuela and You


There’s a particularly wonderful gal that works in my wife’s office, who does the scheduling for her. My wife owns a small business called “A Better Solution” which revolves around homecare. We’re the people you call when your mom’s got dementia and you don’t want her alone. Or maybe your dad needs a ride to the doctors, or maybe you just got out of the hospital and need a little help with housekeeping and meal prep. Yep, that’s us. ( By  the way, if you’re in need of any services such as that in North Port, Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, etc, give us a call!)

Hmmm, not only is this yet another Friday, it's Friday the 13th. 

Does that mean something out of the ordinary happens today? Probably not, but it's an interesting thought. 

So, yesterday they piled into the market, driving us right "to" that 2800 level. And I mean "right to" it.  We hit 2799 during the session and closed at 2798.  That's about as close to a level as you'll find.

Hi all...

Oh look! The futures are up big time. What is it now? The same thing it's been for weeks, the "on again, off again" trade war stuff. 

Yesterday we fell 200 points over the US suggesting it would put an additional 200 billion worth of tariffs on China, and traders feared retaliation. But then overnight, things got quiet and China did NOT lash out with a retaliatory strike, they simply mumbled that they'd review our latest move and make the appropriate reaction.

Oh lookie....

Just as yesterday's market close was on us, I saw the futures starting to dip. Soon after, the dip was then a drop. What now?

More tariffs.

Hello all, welcome to another day. 

The "bounce" was in full throttle "go" yesterday as they walked the market higher virtually all day. Did I think that they'd continue the move higher on Monday? absolutely, that's why I held MSFT and IWM over the weekend. Did I think we'd put on 320 DOW points and 24 S&P's? Nope. I didn't see that coming at all. My guess would have been for 150 - 200 at most.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a great weekend. Our Saturday was filled with our normal excursions to the farmers market, the grocer, etc. But Saturday night was special as we had friends come over to eat and watch the UFC pay per view fights. While the two "big" fights of the night were pretty sub par ( One was so boring, even the commentators were mocking it, and the headline fight was over in minutes of the first round) we still had a great night of conversation, food ( some cookies too) and entertainment.
