Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a great one for you all. My Saturday was filled with "running around" as the wife is gathering things to take with her on her trip to spend a week with her father in NJ. With her mom already having passed, she really enjoys her yearly visit with her dad. So, we were getting her geared up for that. (NOTE>> She flies out Tuesday, but it shouldn't interrupt my usual posting times)

Hmmm, not only is this yet another Friday, it's Friday the 13th. 

Does that mean something out of the ordinary happens today? Probably not, but it's an interesting thought. 

So, yesterday they piled into the market, driving us right "to" that 2800 level. And I mean "right to" it.  We hit 2799 during the session and closed at 2798.  That's about as close to a level as you'll find.

Hi all...

Oh look! The futures are up big time. What is it now? The same thing it's been for weeks, the "on again, off again" trade war stuff. 

Yesterday we fell 200 points over the US suggesting it would put an additional 200 billion worth of tariffs on China, and traders feared retaliation. But then overnight, things got quiet and China did NOT lash out with a retaliatory strike, they simply mumbled that they'd review our latest move and make the appropriate reaction.

Oh lookie....

Just as yesterday's market close was on us, I saw the futures starting to dip. Soon after, the dip was then a drop. What now?

More tariffs.

Hello all, welcome to another day. 

The "bounce" was in full throttle "go" yesterday as they walked the market higher virtually all day. Did I think that they'd continue the move higher on Monday? absolutely, that's why I held MSFT and IWM over the weekend. Did I think we'd put on 320 DOW points and 24 S&P's? Nope. I didn't see that coming at all. My guess would have been for 150 - 200 at most.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from what I hope was a great weekend. Our Saturday was filled with our normal excursions to the farmers market, the grocer, etc. But Saturday night was special as we had friends come over to eat and watch the UFC pay per view fights. While the two "big" fights of the night were pretty sub par ( One was so boring, even the commentators were mocking it, and the headline fight was over in minutes of the first round) we still had a great night of conversation, food ( some cookies too) and entertainment.

Good morning all, it's Friday. Again. 

So yesterday was an interesting show. A nice fat open, that looked pretty good, then a nasty swoon that took all that green away and for all intents, looked like we were going to  roll over red again. But no, they halted the slide and started  another low volume creep higher. It became impressive, and we ended the day with the DOW up 181 and the S&P up 23.

Hello all. In a way it feels like yesterday was a Sunday and I'm welcoming you back from the weekend. But no, it's simply a Thursday morning after a big Holiday. So, how was it? Did you have a fun day, full of BBQ, a few beers and good times with friends and family? Or was it just another day?

How rich was that? All day, and I mean literally all day the DOW was down about 120 and the S&P was down 10. But hey, it's the first day of the new month/new quarter and they can't have their precious market looking weak, so what happens? They engage the magic levitation machine and up we go, ending the day green across the board. 

Is that the results of millions of individual investors across the globe, all  deciding it was the perfect time to save the 50 day moving average? HELL NO.
