Morning all. 

The Algo-bots ganged up on each other yesterday, and didn't quite know how to stop it. The end result of course was that we ended the day down over 800, with the S&P down 90.  That's a pretty big drop. 

After hours, the futures were all over the map, and early this morning they were really blood red. At 6 am, we had the DOW indicated down another 360.

In today's general commentary, I relate a story from many many years ago, where your intrepid editor, was "fired" by a female boss. The reason? I didn't make advances toward her. Yes you read right. She was jealous that I'd come in and joke and flirt with the girls, but put on my business face for her. In this era of meetoo, one wonders when the next hashtag will be "#mentoo". 

In the market section, we talk about todays 800+ freefall in the DOW and what it means, why it happened and what's next. Stay tuned folks, things could get fun in here soon!

What About Bob?
 
I expected some pushback to the article I wrote on Sunday, where I mentioned my opinions concerning the leftist attack on Brett Kavanaugh, and how disgusted I was with the whole thing.
 
Interestingly, my in box was considerably quieter than I expected, with just a handful of people suggesting I support rapists, and hate women, etc. Obviously I support nothing of the sort, I was simply pointing out that this had nothing to do with Ford, this was an all out attempt to stop Kavanaugh from getting to the bench.

Good morning everyone, and let me start the day with a prayer for all those folks from Louisiana to Tampa bay FL that are going to be affected by Hurricane Michael. According to the hurricane center, this is a cat 4 now. 

If this really is a cat 4, instead of some manipulated numbers to push the global warming theme, then there's no safe way to stay put. 140 mph at the ground level, will take down homes, trees, roofs, flip trucks, etc.  I'm really hoping that it's not that strong and that they're saying it's that strong because of the mantra recently,  that because of man made warming storms are getting worse.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday. 

I was hoping I didn't have to say any more prayers for folks in the path of any more hurricanes, but alas, it wasn't to be. We've got a late year monster churning out in the gulf and I do pray for any and all that will be affected.

Good morning all, welcome to a new week. 

First off a quick note, if you took advantage of the two for one deal, don't be alarmed if your account shows that your subscription might show you expire in just one  a year. The "system" isn't set up for 2 year members, and we have to go in and manually "bump" everyone out for the extra year. We'll probably have everyone bumped by Wed/Thursday.

Good morning all, welcome to yet another Friday. 

So yesterday the market had a particularly bad day. Bond yields, along with a lot of weakness in emerging markets, coupled with some troubling words out of the Chinese economy all added up to a pretty sloppy session.

Good morning all, welcome to what could be an interesting Thursday. 

First off, if you haven't noticed, Bond yields are spooking the market a bit. Yesterday they popped over 3% on the ten year, which took some wind out of the market sails. This morning the ten year is swapping at 3.22%, a level we haven't seen in years.

10.3.2018 - You Did it!! Bookmark

Hello all, first off let me say a big hearty thank you! I'm waling in the "lets cure alzheimers" walk on Saturday and had requested donations to our team members that are doing the walk. Well our goal was 3,000 dollars and because of your generosity, we bested that level. So again, thank you all so much. Alzheimer's and related dementia are horrible diseases and if just one dollar helps someone through it, or leads us closer to a cure, I'm okay with it. 

 

In the market commentary we chat about the insane market levels, and how no matter what, one day this will all end. The best "stock" year we ever had was being short the market during the 2008/09 sell down, and it will indeed happen again. But for now, as we make new highs again almost daily, we lean long, take our shots and ring the register.

YOU DID IT!
 
I have to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. If you don’t know, I am involved with the Alzheimer’s initiatives, and this Saturday is our “walk” to defeat Alzheimers.
 
We asked for donations to our “team” and we put an ambitious goal of 3,000 dollars as our teams fund raising target. Well, you generous folks did it, we surpassed our goal!
