Good morning all, and welcome back from your weekend. I'm hopeful that it was a good one for you all. Ours was quite nice, as Saturday evening we had a lovely Christmas party to attend, and  we ended up staying in a great hotel for the evening. Then Sunday morning after checking out, it was a stroll through  a park that runs along the gulf coast. Then onto some brunch at Sharkey's on the pier in Venice. The weather was glorious, the food was good and all in all, it was a great weekend.

Well now...

Hi everyone, welcome to Friday. Just ten more days until Christmas. Can you believe it? Not me.

Well good morning all. 

I've only seen a market response like we got yesterday, on Fed decision days to CUT interest rates. But this time around, we got a market rally on the decision to HIKE interest rates. Up is down, round is blue and sweet is bumpy.  Everything's crazy.

Hey there everyone, welcome to Wednesday. 

The other day I mentioned that the day ahead of a Fed decision is usually a green day. Well they certainly took that to heart, as the DOW was up over 150 at times and both the DOW and the S&P hit new highs.

Hello folks, welcome to Tuesday. 

Today starts the two day Fed meeting which in my opinion will end tomorrow with a quarter of a point rate hike. In more normal times, the fear of a rate hike would have the market's diving, but as I mentioned Sunday, in this atmosphere of Central bank liquidity, momentum, tax strategies and performance chasing, they'll "probably" ignore this hike.

Good morning everyone and welcome back from your weekend. Was it full of running around doing Holiday shopping? Or was it "same ole, same ole" for you? Down here in Sunny Florida "it" finally happened. The same cold front that brought snow all the way from Atlanta up through Maine made a stop down here first. No, we didn't get snow, but saturday was rainy and windy and then Saturday night the temps dropped like a rock.

Good morning all, we've made it to yet another Friday. 

Yesterday the market put in a bounce, and the question of the day was this: Would it be a one day wonder, a dead cat bounce, or was it the start of a real move up?  My guess was that it was fairly real, and we'd see the market get back at least half of the points it lost over the Monday-Wed. selling. But it was and is just a guess.

Good morning everyone, and welcome to a new day. 

NOTE>>  Today my wife is throwing a little Holiday party for her employees to drop by the office, pick up a gift, and have a bite to eat. So chances are good that I won't be posting an afternoon update, I'll probably be helping her host her little gathering.

Well, what to think? That's two days in a row where the market started out pretty well, and they sold into it. Granted it wasn't as bad as the day before where we went from up 350 to up just 50, but we were up about 50 yesterday and closed down 107. 

That's two.

I'm sure you all saw or at least heard about what happened yesterday.  After a monster open, based on the tax reform package passing over the weekend, the momentum shifted and as the day wore on the averages sank lower and lower. From up almost 305 near the open, the DOW actually closed up just 58. The S&P which at one point was up 16, ended the day RED by almost 3. The techs? Don't even ask. they didn't get much traction in the morning and by the close, they'd lost over 70.
