Good morning everyone, another one of these Friday things has rolled right up on us. 

Did you see it? Were you there yesterday when it happened? For hours on end, the market was almost frozen in time. Then just after 2:15 the market started moving higher, and then started screaming higher. Obviously someone said something.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday and all the fun you can stand. 

Okay, maybe not "all" the fun you can have. Ha. 

The futures this morning have been fading since I first looked at 5 am. At that early hour, the DOW was off just 20, and now as I write this at 8 am, they're down to where the implied open is - 125.

Hi all.  

Before we get started, let me mention that I hope all of you are staying healthy out there. Various strains of flu, and colds and bugs are sweeping all over Florida, and it's not pretty. Several people I know are down with everything from Strep throat to full blown flu.

Hello all, welcome to another day in this crazy market. 

I got up early this morning, found some coffee and settled into my office chair. I flipped on the monitor, and the first thing I saw was the DOW futures up 106 points. Okay, nothing blew up over night. 

Then we got the build up to JP Morgan's earnings release. All the analysts were getting excited, but when the earnings hit... they missed. Big.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Monday. Ew, right?  Well, yeah. 

Anyway, as is my custom, I hope that your weekend was a pleasant one. I know that for a lot of my friends up north, the weekend brought a lot of cold and snow. My "bestest" buddy from the Jersey bayfront sent me a picture of his outdoor thermometer reading 25 degrees and another of the snow covering his house, yard and canal. Brrrr!

Ouch. 

Yesterday I was looking at the retailers. Earnings weren't scheduled until Feb 14th, so it seemed  we had time on our side. WMT, TGT and LOW were trying to make good looking patterns.  I took on some TGT  at 70.55. it made  70.90 shortly after. But it didn't hold and it actually went into the close red for me at 70.27.  I looked at WMT and LOW and they too were depressed.

Good morning everyone, welcome to another interesting day. 

The news wires this morning are flooded with opinion about Trumps 9 minute long speech last night. Isn't it funny how not long ago Chuck Schumer voted for the money to erect over 600 miles of border fence, but now Him and Pelosi consider a fence "immoral?"  It's' not funny, it's sad.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

It took a while to get in gear, but yesterday they did put on a follow through day.  Yes it's a nervous sort of affair, considering how many times this market has put in big up moves, only to roll over and fall like a rock.

Hi all, welcome back from your weekend. 

I start each Monday asking if you enjoyed your weekend, and I truly hope in fact that you did. Our Saturday was about as mundane as it gets. The wife got her hair done, I helped my Mom around the house, yada yada yada.

Morning all, it's another Friday. 

Yesterday was ugly. Again. Yes it was  AAPL, yes it was the credit market, yes it was a lot of things. 

When I saw them tumbling lower into the close, down 660,  I figured that my SPY had been sold off. It was. I didn't want to hold any SPY red, so I had set an electronic stop for  244.00 That got hit.
