NOTE>>>  My day has taken some twists that I hadn't planned on. I will probably be missing in action until this afternoon.  First off, a stupid "cap" came loose on one of my teeth yesterday, so I'm getting that cemented this morning. Then my mom surprised me by telling me she's got a doctors appointment at 11, that I didn't know about.

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.

What a LOUSY bounce. After a sluggish morning, they finally picked up the pace and for a while there it looked like they were going to let things run for a bit. But later in the afternoon, things started slowing down and the close was simply spectacularly disappointing.  Both the S&P and the DOW finished the day well off their highs, with the DOW under its 50 day and the S&P holding just slightly above it.

Morning all, welcome to Wednesday. 

Again I thank all of you for the well wishes for my mom and my Aunt. My mom grew up with two sisters and a brother, and they have always been close. One reason my mom and dad moved to Florida 30 years ago was so that mom could always see her sister, and they only live a mile from her. One sister passed about 6 years back, so seeing this sister in the hospital has really shaken her.

Hello everyone, welcome back from the weekend. As per the usual, I hope it was a great one for you. Down here in sunny Florida, the sun took a bit of a break and we had some cloudy, misty weather on Saturday. That lasted into Sunday morning, and then the "transition" happened. On Sunday, my mom ( who's 90 years old) asked me if I'd take  her to the super Walmart so she could get some things. When we went into the store, it was 67 degrees, cloudy and drizzling.

Good morning all, welcome back from what I hope was a wonderful weekend for you all. I couldn't have asked for a better weekend, as the wife and I left Friday afternoon for a two day get away. The weather was perfect and the wife enjoyed the sunny skies by lounging at the pool for most of the day Saturday. Then Saturday evening we hit our new "favorite" eatery and ended the night  with a few cocktails while listening to a very talented duo playing guitars. All in all, a tremendous "win" and I wish it wasn't over.  I hope yours was as fun!

Hello everyone! I trust you're up and about this morning after what I can truly say was the best super bowl of all time. Admittedly, I'm not a rabid sports fan. I will watch the occasional game now and then, I enjoy hockey more than anything else, but I  usually tune in to playoffs and big games. Well, last night's game didn't disappoint anyone.

Good morning all. I guess today we'll see if I read the whole Thursday/Friday sell down wrong and it was just another in a long long string of "one day wonders" that just happened to stretch into two days.

Okay so yesterday they didn't want any part of a 9 day DOW losing streak and they made their point. After being up nearly 200 points, when the final bell rang, we had 150 DOW points showing and 15 on the S&P. It was a nice bounce, but it did come with a bit of a caveat. See, as we get near the close of business every day, the exchanges announce the "imbalances' to the buy or sell side. Often they're a few hundred million to the buy or to the close, which they try and "pair off" by the 4 pm bell. ( often it takes them a bit longer and that's why the closing price you see a 4 pm, might be a little different than say at 5 pm when it's all settled.)

It had to come and it looks like today it will.  We all knew there had to be a bounce, and I actually bought into the SPY yesterday in anticipation of it. But it didn't work, I stopped out.  I had thought seriously of buying back in at the close, simply because the market can't just go down every day, but I didn't tell you guys I'd try that, so...I didn't.
