The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!
In a twist of the time/space continuum, somehow the Sunday edition of the free investing newsletter is actually posted on Saturday evening. Yes folks, it's there in all its glory. And, what prey-tell is in this issue? CIVIL WAR. What??? Yes, you read right. Is the US barreling towards a Civil war?
The fight between the truly fringe left and the moderate to far right people is escalating daily. Protests, shout downs, following politicians into Movie theaters and restaurants, etc. Day after day, there's some unhinged lunatic communistic leftist, threatening Republicans and even threatening to assassinate the President. This isn't a fad, this started over 2 years ago and is still building momentum.
So, we talk about that in the general commentary, and then in the market commentary, we mention things such as the giant intra-day reversals we've seen lately. They're really stunning. Wednesday for example, the DOW started the session with a gain of 285 points, yet it ended the day RED by 165. That's some stunning turn around. What's it mean? Why that sort of volatility? We chat about that and more, so please give the letter a read, it's good stuff.
In today's free investing newsletter, we start off with a review of the weekend's "field day" for ham radio operators. As you might or might not know, when there's a serious emergency such as a hurricane, often it is only the short wave operators that have the ability to communicate. Cell phones and land lines are often down for days and even weeks, but a proper short wave set up can always operate.
So this past weekend the wife and I went to a local club to see how they set things up in the case of an emergency, and we had a blast talking to the people and checking out their equipment.
In the market commentary, we talk about this manic market, where it can start off the day with the DOW gaining 285 points and end the day in the RED by 165. For 6 solid months now the market has bounced, dropped, popped, dipped, and gone totally nowhere. Now we have the DOW below its most important moving averages, and the S&P has failed its own 50 day. Is the end near? Are we going to bounce, or see a roll over? We discuss that and more.
