Good Friday morning to you all. Yes, another Friday. They come quick, don't they?

The DOW couldn't pull it off, but the S&P and especially the techs, put in a big fat green day yesterday.  AAPL hit a one trillion dollar market cap, and there were rainbows and unicorns abundant. 

We pulled the trigger on the QQQ's at 177.68, endured a little wiggle, and then watched it run to  179.53 for the close.

Hello everyone, it's Thursday. 

The bad news for the bulls is that the DOW futures are down150 and the S&P is down 14.  

The good news for the bulls is that the futures are WAY off of their lows. I saw the DOW down 202 and the S&P down 19 earlier this am. 

So what's this all about?

Good morning everyone, we've made it to a new month. This year is certainly soaring along. 

So, yesterday the market started out in the premarket looking like it was going to be a soggy day. But then that "headline" hit, suggesting the Chinese want to re-open trade talks and avert a trade war. So, the indexes went nuts, and we put in a very green day. 

But this morning, things look different.

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)

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.

Good morning all, it's Friday. Again. 

So yesterday was an interesting show. A nice fat open, that looked pretty good, then a nasty swoon that took all that green away and for all intents, looked like we were going to  roll over red again. But no, they halted the slide and started  another low volume creep higher. It became impressive, and we ended the day with the DOW up 181 and the S&P up 23.

Hello all. In a way it feels like yesterday was a Sunday and I'm welcoming you back from the weekend. But no, it's simply a Thursday morning after a big Holiday. So, how was it? Did you have a fun day, full of BBQ, a few beers and good times with friends and family? Or was it just another day?

Good morning all, and welcome to another week in market land. I truly hope your weekend was a good one. Down here in hot and humid Florida all our plans got "washed out" big time. 

Saturday was running around day, doing some groceries and what have you. That was supposed to set us up for going bike riding and beaching after Church on Sunday. Well, mother nature had different plans. Right at about noon time things started looking nasty and at about 1 pm the rain and thunder rolled in. But that was just the prelude. At about 2 pm, the mother of all lightening storms descended on us, with bolt after bolt hitting trees and the ground in our area.

Good morning all, I hope your weekend was terrific. Mine was not. 

This past week I had taken my mom to the doctors twice, for a nasty "goopy" cough, and Friday they didn't like it at all. So, Mom spent Friday afternoon/night, Saturday and Sunday in the Hospital. We got her back Sunday evening, but frankly she didn't look as well as I'd hoped. 
On the Uncle front, we got a call Friday night that he's taken a really bad turn for the worse. Poor guy, the end is very near.  I truly hate cancer.
