Good morning everyone, we've made it to another one of those Friday things that seem to get here faster each year. 

Except for the flow of earnings releases, the overnight session was pretty quiet. MSFT was the "big one" and they did pretty well. Interestingly, after their release they were up strongly, then faded to go red. This morning they've inched back to green.

Hello everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

After two days of soggy action, they weren't about to make it three and they came in pretty heavy yesterday. We closed the show with the S&P gaining 13, the DOW up 66 and the NASDAQ up 40. Naturally, that equates to "all time highs". Again. For about the 20th time this year.

Mornin' all, welcome to Wednesday. 

Yesterday was a very strange day. We had the DOW lagging badly, the S&P trying to hold flat and the NASDAQ creeping higher into the green. While the DOW closed well off its intra day low, it was still down 54, while the S&P gained 1 and the NASDAQ gained almost 30. The volume however was dismal.  So we've now gone the longest stretch of time in 20 years without a 5% correction.

Good morning all, have you woken up from yesterday's snoozefest? Good!  

Yes it was the flattest of days. It was a low volume sleep fest, and when the final bell rang, we lost 8 DOW points, lost 0.13 S&P's and gained two on the NASDAQ. Yawn. 

The S&P saw its lowest volume day in 12 years. Literally.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend.   Mine was not only 'uneventful" it wasn't fun in the least!  I offered to help the wife do a bunch of data inputting on some new software for her Home companion business. Well that turned into a 2 day marathon, that I wouldn't wish on anyone. But, we got it done and it had to be, so.... oh well, there's always next weekend for the bike/beach/walk, etc.

Hello everyone, we've made it to another Friday, as they just seem to roll on by so fast. 

As I mentioned several times yesterday, we had a 2 man crew at my Mom's house to replace an aging air conditioner system. It truly was a breath of fresh air to see two young men that were conscientious, polite, knowledgeable, able and thorough.  It was a big job, and took all day, but when they were done, not only did it work better than we had hoped, the installation looked like it could be the centerfold for "how to do things right".  I was duly impressed.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday. 

NOTE>> As I warned the other day, I'm going to be a bit distracted today, as we have a crew coming to my mom's house to replace her entire A/C system, including adding more ducting and returns. It's a pretty big job and I'll be there to keep an eye on things. Of course I'll be on line, and doing my thing, I'm just suggesting that I could be off on timing of my updates, etc.

Hello all, and welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday was simply a nothingburger. After an entire session of ups and downs, we ended the day with the DOW down 6, the S&P up 2. Yawn. Zzzzz. Yes there was some pockets here and there, like Amazon who was up because of their "prime day" and running huge sales for 30 hours. But overall it was a pretty boring session

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a really good one for you all. 

Mine was fair to middlin. As you know I'm an MMA fan, and there was free fights on Friday night to watch, that's good. Then Saturday evening there was a pay per view MMA show with more free preliminaries. That was good too. The issue came up on Sunday however, as after church the wife and "thought" we were going biking to the beach. HA!  At 12:30 we started hearing rumbles and sure enough by 1 pm, it was raining sideways and lightening was flying.
