9.30.2014

Good morning all...

Well yesterday, after a 175 point plunge they fought the DOW back to being down just 41 for the close. The S&P however was the one that I found a bit too funny. Early in the session the S&P fell like a rock, and I said a couple times in updates that I'd figure they'd get the index back over 1976 because they wouldn't want to go into the close with the S&P under its 50 day moving average. Sure enough they poured on the coals and when the final bell rang, guess where it was? You got it... 1977.

9.29.2014 Futures Red on Hong Kong? Bookmark

This morning we awoke to DOW futures showing a negative 100 points. Well, didn't we just have an almost 200 point gain on Friday? We did. So, what's the Issue??  Let's see....

NOTE> We've changed the site to a new server. Everything should work just the way it always did, you log in, scroll to category, select Insiders Club, etc. We don't expect any issues.



Didn't we gain almost 200 points Friday? We did.

So why are we looking at the futures at 7 am, down 100 here this morning?  Ahh, the plot thickens...

Markets use "news" as an excuse for making a move. If the market wants to go up, it will find some little tidbit of news to use as the excuse for why it's doing so. If it wants down, it will take what ever news it decides will be the "reason" for the downdraft. So today we've got the futures in the toilet and the "word" has it that it is because of the protests in Hong Kong.

9.26.2014 Bounce Day? Bookmark

 



Good morning folks, it's Friday and not a day too soon.

Okay, lets do a quick review here.

On Sunday I devoted the entire letter to the "idea" that the market was set up for what could become a fairly large pull back. We had all sorts of arcane indicators that were flashing the danger signal. But I also said several times that "we've seen this movie before", meaning that the market has been perched on the edge of a cliff multiple times and they just rushed in and saved us. I said it could easily happen again.

9.25.2014 Market PLUNGE!! Bookmark

 

On Sunday we spelled out all the reasons that the market looked poised for a roll over, or in other words a significant correction. Monday looked bad, Tuesday was worse, then Wednesday they came out of the clear blue and bought up everything. All the folks that were short, scrambled to cover and that sent the market soaring. But today, there was NO follow through what so ever and by 11 am we had plunged 200 points.

9.25.2014

Good morning everyone, welcome to the day.

Okay you all know what happened yesterday. Out of nowhere they created a big fat bounce day. So in one session, they pulled the market from the edge of the cliff, and saved the day. The question is simple.... are we in the clear for more gains, or was it a one day event?  The answer isn't so easy to say.

You all know what's been going on for the last 3 years. Every time the market is looking like it is ready for a serious pull down, "they" come in with algo's blazing to save us. But as this pattern has played out over and over...the market has become narrower and narrower. By narrow we mean that less and less stocks are benefiting from the Fed induced, mega-bank induced push higher.

Water and The Market Bookmark

 

The Water Problem

Water is the most amazing fluid on earth, and yet we take it for such granted that no one gives it a moments thought.  It isn’t just the “cool” facts about water that make it intriguing; such as the fact it is one of  the only substances that exists in three states, being liquid, solid and gas without needing extreme temperatures to create each state.  Water for instance  is the only natural substance found in all three physical states at the temperatures that naturally occur on Earth.

But water is much more than “some wet stuff” we use to drink, cook and bathe. Studies have shows that water actually has a form of memory.  Water can dissolve more substances in it than any other material known to man. Water is somewhat unique as it is one of the very few materials that increases in volume as it freezes. By expanding in volume by up to 9%, the density of water in its solid state is lower than it is in its liquid state. This gives ice the ability to float.

Mortgage Applications Fall Again?? Bookmark

 

Today ( Wednesday) we learned that mortgage applications fell another 4% last week. That certainly doesn't jive with the new home sales that they say rose 18%. How can that be? It's really pretty easy folks. The middle class has no money and can't afford a mortgage any more. They're beaten up. But the rich, who have been gifted by the Fed's with all manner of stock gains are so flush with cash, they are buying new homes like they're going out of style.
