Hello all, welcome to Thursday....

While the only economic data we're going to get today is the initial jobless claims, we do see two of the Talking head Fed members will be out speaking today.  I wish they'd all just shut up, because on one hand they tell us they want to be more transparent, yet it isn't transparent when they parade a handful of them around to suggest we're really close to a rate hike, and then Yellen double crosses everyone and basically says there's no rate hikes in the works.

That's not transparency, that's fraud.

Good morning all....we've made it to Wednesday.

At some point the world is going to call these Central Banks to task. 

For two weeks, members of the FOMC were out talking about the economy and rate hikes. Just ONE week ago James Bullard was out suggesting that not only are rate hikes on the table, he could see a move higher in APRIL.  With the bulk of them suggesting that hikes were pretty much imminent, everyone and his brother was looking for Yellen to be pretty Hawkish at her speech in NY yesterday.

Good morning all, welcome to a new day.

Once again a fairly "punk" day made it back to green, as the "riggers" seem to never want to allow a red close.  Yesterday was a study in low volume "wandering" as the market was green, then red, then green and back and forth all day. But the range was very narrow...within the statistical equivalent of "flat".

Good morning all, welcome back from your Holiday weekend. Hopefully you were able to be "off" on Good Friday also, giving you one of those coveted three day weekends. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Churches packed to the rafters here in our town, and I hope they were in the area you live in too. Whether you're religious or not, seeing houses of worship filled up is a good sign. It shows there's still people; who even if they only show up on Holidays, at least remember the reason for the season.

The latest Free Newsletter is posted now and I invite you all to check it out. In the spirit of the Holiday, it is a letter I penned concerning a very interesting time in my life, where I realized that sometimes wealthy does not mean rich.  Please take a moment to read it, as I'm sure all of you have had a similar experience at one point in your life.

NOTE>
I wrote this article back in 2014 at this very time of the year. I had gotten so many emails from people sharing a similar story that it became one of my favorite letters, and thus I’m reposting it for the Easter Season.


Big Money and Easter

(Rich and Wealthy aren’t necessarily the same)

In many circles this is the most holy week of all. From Palm Sunday through “Spy Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and Easter itself, this particular time of the year is incredibly important to millions of people.

Good morning all, we've made it to the end of the trading week.  Today the stock market is open all day, but some of the bond trading will be closed early, so the market is sort of "on its  own" for the last few hours. That could be interesting.

Tomorrow is the closing for Good Friday, and I do want to wish you all the very best in deeply spiritual time. For many this Easter season is the most wonderful time of their year, and I truly hope you all enjoy it for what is means.

Good morning all, welcome to another day....

Yesterday was the lowest volume day of the year. The day before that was up until then, the lowest volume day of the year. Last week if you take out the options expiration day, we had the lowest volume days of the year.

Yet the market has held up remarkably.

Hello all....

Well it's happened again.  Over in Brussels, there's been explosions at a train station and the airport. News is still coming in, but it seems like over 30 dead and over 100 wounded.

Let's guess who it wasn't....

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a fun one for you.  Down here in Florida, our Saturday was a wash out with very strong thunderstorms, a few of which "almost" created tornado's again. Knock on wood that didn't happen, but we still got pounded pretty hard. Sunday was a much better affair, as the sun tried to come out several times throughout the day.

As a side note... As you would know if you've been with us long enough, I'm very much into the "littoral" environment.  If you're unfamiliar with the term, this is it...
