Until It Can’t?

Over the years, we’ve talked many times about the fact that Central banks are now enormous buyers of actual stocks. We’ve mentioned how the Bank of Japan owns almost ¾ of all their market ETF’s. How the Swiss national bank has bought literally billions of dollars worth of AAPl,  and MSFT and XOM.  We’ve talked about how companies have borrowed money at virtually zero interest rates and used the money to buy up their own shares of stock.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Well the pattern certainly remained in place. After getting our first two up days in a row, they couldn't pull off another green day and we ended yesterday with the DOW off 56 and the S&P down 8.

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday and more lunacy.

NOTE>>>  Tomorrow ( Thursday) there will be NO afternoon update.  I have to take my wife to the airport right after the 10:40 update. She's going up north to visit with her dad for a week, something she hasn't done since her mom passed last year.

Okay, so yesterday was a red day, a bit more red than I expected, but in the big picture....a non event. I expected red simply because that's the way it's been going, a day up, a day down, then a bigger day up, and a little down and so on.

Good morning all, welcome to Fed day.

Today we'll get the decision of the FOMC concerning interest rate policy. I can't wait to see what mumbo-jumbo they spew this time. While the chances of them announcing a sneak rate hike are about 0, the interesting part will be if they "talk tough" about possibly doing something in June.

Hello everyone, welcome to what looks like an interesting day....


The futures this morning are blood red. We are actually well off the lows, as earlier I saw the DOW off 340 points. As I type this, they're down 290. Why the puking futures?  There's a combo-platter of reasons. Oil has plunged again, and is now in the 26's. Sweden cut it's already negative rates to even lower.

Hello everyone, welcome to Friday... a day that couldn't get here quick enough.

It's been a big week in market land. Even yesterday; they didn't have the oomph  to keep things going, but they didn't let it fall either. We put in a flat day.

Overnight, Draghi of ECB fame hinted once again at doing all he has to do to fight deflation. That is code speak for "more free money comin at ya!" So markets liked that. In fact they liked it so much, that in the nation of Mali, Islamic crazies took 170 people hostage at an upscale hotel and the response was a yawn by markets.

Hello everyone, it's Hump day already, so lets see if we can get up and over it....

Yesterday was a long boring "hover" around the flat line. After some fireworks early in the day, where the DOW had  the audacity to drop about 70 points, they quickly put an end to that nonsense and brought us right back up to the flat line. It didn't matter who missed earnings or what lousy reports we might have gotten, they had a plan and they executed it.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Wednesday, and I hope it's a good one for you.

The pace of the insanity that is careening around the world lately is certainly spectacular. One of the more fun aspects of what I do for a living is waking up, flipping on the monitors and looking around for the latest example of lunacy. It doesn't take long to find.

Today we learn that in NY, a mom; unemployed and on Food stamps, with no appreciable income, wanted to buy her daughter a car to get to work. They went to a BMW dealer, and told the people that she's got no job, no income. They assured her that indeed she qualifies for the car. She got it.

Somebody Is Wrong

Considering that we’re “smack-dab” in the middle of the Holiday season, I don’t think it would be appropriate for me to sound off on some of the really deep issues that we’re going to need to discuss this year. For now everyone should be enjoying their Holiday season, sharing good times with family and friends, and doing their best to remember the good things in their lives.

That said however, the fact is that “someone” is wrong about things. Either the cheer leading, rah-rah TV people are right and the economy is healing, things are getting better and the nation is about to see a new 10 year expansion….or they’re wrong and the so called doom and gloomers are right. They both can’t be.
