The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

4.29.2017 -Free Newsletter is up Bookmark

Hey everyone, a much shorter letter is up today. Today happens to be my birthday, and the wife has treated me to a weekend "away", so I made this letter quite short. However that's not to say  it isn't a good one. I want to explore who this Trump guy is. He's seemingly flipped on just about every promise he made. Or...has he?  Some believe it's all for show, as he works behind the scenes trying to get his plans moving.  Which is it?  

So today we get to hear from Mr. Assad himself. Take a read, I think you'll find his views interesting.

Who is This Guy?

 

My goal for this weekend’s letter was to explore the “Trump” situation. I wanted to get into a long discussion trying to figure out just who he is, and what he’s doing. As you know many are depressed that he seems to have flipped on many issues he ran on. Then there’s others that are suggesting a lot of it is for “show” while he tries to work his deals and get things accomplished.

Hi Folks, happy Friday.  

Yes we've made it to Friday, which is a good thing. Every week lately, tends to come with so much drama that I find myself looking forward to a break. Oh and what a break it will be, for me anyway.  Tomorrow's my birthday. As much as I've tried to fight it off, it had to happen and yes, I turn 60 tomorrow.  So, the wife has "surprised" me with a weekend away at a resort we like, and reservations at one of our favorite eateries.

Mornin' all, welcome to a new day. 

While I'm far from being a sports nut, I do enjoy watching NHL hockey during playoff season. Somehow I allowed myself to stay up and watch the second game of the evening, and before I knew it,, it was tomorrow.  Ouch!  So yeah, I'm a little bleary eyed this am. 

4.26.2017- Lots of stuff happened today Bookmark

Executive orders, tax plans, what else did today bring? Find out in our free investing newsletter tonight. Yes folks, today Wednesday the 26th, the President signed an executive order returning the control of some 250 million acres of land, back to the States, instead of the Federal Government that had stepped in to "rule over" it. Then later in the day we got the outline of what Trump is trying to get out of his tax plan overhaul. 

There's a lot of moving parts in it, but he's a bit skimpy on details. So as you can imagine it was a fun day in market land as we went up, we went sideways and we ended red. We're now perched at the doorstep of all time highs... are they going to punch us through? Good question. Take a read of today's letter and get our view.

Why Nothing Matters Part II
 
For the weekend I wrote about why nothing seems to bother the market. Not wars, not falling sales, not a 1% or less GDP, not false flag attacks, not missiles flying through the night....nothing.  And we revealed to you the reason, the Central banks have bought up 1 Trillion dollars worth of financial assets in just the first quarter.
 
Then I went on to explain why. See, there’s so many things “connected” to the markets, that if the markets were allowed to fall, the ripple effect would be huge. Consider a pension plan that is allowed to keep a certain percentage of their money in stocks. That plan might be the life savings of 25,000 people. But if the amount they have vested in the market was to be slashed by say 50%...that’s a lot of people that just saw their retirement go to hell in a handbag.

Hello everyone...welcome to a new day. ( And what a strange day it could be....)

Yesterday they turned on the afterburners and put in a second 200 point day. Interestingly, the entire month of April didn't have one incident of back to back gains, and then Monday and Tuesday, we not only got back to back gains... they  were the two biggest up days since the Election almost 6 months ago.

Before we get rolling on the day's market activity I want to chat a bit about the mining stocks, the GDXJ, and the nightmare mess that's going on there.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a "ton-O-fun" for you all. Mine wasn't quite as wonderful as I was hoping. What I had in mind was a nice bike ride to the beach, then a good 2 mile stroll along the waters edge, followed by a great ride home. What I actually got however was "orders" to take down curtains, clean ceiling fans, etc.  Ha... !   Of course there were no orders, it was simply time for some spring cleaning. We have been so void of rain in Florida for the last 5 months that we're in a drought, fires are burning all over the state, and the dust is just ridiculous. 5 months of no rain makes for insane dust accumulation. 

4.22.2017 - Nothing Matters...and why Bookmark

One TRILLION dollars. Yes folks, the central banks of the world have purchased one TRILLION dollars worth of financial assets ( stocks and corporate bonds) in just the first quarter of this year. Now you know why the market flirts with all time highs despite Syria, N.Korea, falling retail sales, lousy PMI's etc. etc. Nothing matters because the Central banks are buying the market, keeping it up. 

In this weeks free investment newsletter, we quote the Zero Hedge article that shows where that number came from. Then we talk about the Plunge protection team that we have here in the US.  Yes folks, there is a group of folks who's job it is, is to keep our markets from falling. And we quote an ex member of that very team.  

So take a minute to read this weeks free investing newsletter and you'll understand why the market can act like superman, in the face of things that would take a "normal" market to its knees.
