The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

5.31.2017 - The Dreaded Double Whammy Bookmark

Good evening all, the latest issue of our Free Investing Newsletter is posted, and in this we talk about the distortions infecting the market from two directions. One is the ETF explosion and the other is Central bankers  that are buying stocks, something we didn't see 15 years ago. 

 

When you get done reading this article, you'll understand why fundamentals have flown out the window and stocks that should NOT be up, are up anyway. This is going to be problematic at some point, but for now it's business as usual. Give it a read, and it might clear some things up for you.

The Double Whammy
 
It’s quite hard to write a “financial” letter 2 times a week for almost 25 years and not go over some of the same things.   Knowing that I try my best to change it up as often as I can, so repetition doesn’t bore you and I to tears.
 
However, there’s something that I’ve written about before that I think needs not only closer inspection, but a real hard “think” about the ramifications.  So let’s get started with the first part of the double whammy...

Good morning all...Welcome to Wednesday. 

I don't know what sort of voodoo attacked me yesterday, but it didn't end until I went to bed. It started with the garage door opener going crazy yesterday morning. I thought that was the end of it. Ha! No way. Last evening my friend and I went down to Punta Gorda to hear a lecture from Robert Steele. After it was over and we were heading back home, my low pressure tire indicator came on. I was just a few blocks from getting on the interstate and decided to swing into a gas station

Good morning all, welcome back from your Holiday weekend. I truly hope that what ever Memorial day means to you and your family, you all shared in remembrance of our fallen AND our still fighting warriors.

Hello everyone, I hope you're having a tremendous Holiday weekend. This edition of the free newsletter is up and I spent the commentary section talking about some personal perspective of Memorial day, along with some of the issues I think our Vet's are struggling with. 

Then in the Market section, we toss out a little "proof" that the plunge protection team is really the reason this market never seems to be able to correct any more. I think you'll find it an interesting read.

Memorial Day
 
This holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, actually started as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868.  That is when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a day for the nation to decorate the graves of the Union war dead with flowers.

Morning all, it's Thursday and all time high day to boot. 

Yesterday, after the FOMC meeting minutes were released the market grumbled for a little while and then decided it was going to go up despite what the minutes said. What better way to respond to the Fed's who stated that they were aware of "asset valuations" being high, than to blst to all time new highs??  

5.24.2017 - ALL TIME HIGHS! Bookmark

Hello everyone, welcome to Wednesday. Today's free newsletter is posted and in the commentary section, we are talking about .380 the "ammo" and if it is acceptable for a self defense round. This comes after I had posted a letter on Sunday and in it I mentioned that I had changed my carry gun, and it is chambered in .380.  That got me some push back from "those guys" that seem to think that anything short of a cannon is too small.  We talk about that and the incredible developments in ammo technology. Is .380 good enough? It is today. 

We also talk about the market hitting an all time high again today. For no really good reason, in the face of June rate hikes, while digesting fading fundamentals, we inched our way to glory. Yet it came on punk volume. Is it the start of a new leg higher, or like the March first all time high, will it fade off and we trend sideways again? We talk about it all.

The .380

 

I knew it would happen, it always happens. Over the weekend while talking “off topics” in my last article, I had mentioned I had changed my personal concealed carry gun from a Ruger LCP to a Barretta Pico. It is chambered in .380. I should have started counting the seconds after it was sent, because I knew someone would write in and give me noise about carrying a .380 for self defense.  This was the first and most colorful of them. (exactly as I received it for special effect)
