Hi all...

Oh look! The futures are up big time. What is it now? The same thing it's been for weeks, the "on again, off again" trade war stuff. 

Yesterday we fell 200 points over the US suggesting it would put an additional 200 billion worth of tariffs on China, and traders feared retaliation. But then overnight, things got quiet and China did NOT lash out with a retaliatory strike, they simply mumbled that they'd review our latest move and make the appropriate reaction.

Oh lookie....

Just as yesterday's market close was on us, I saw the futures starting to dip. Soon after, the dip was then a drop. What now?

More tariffs.

Good morning all, it's Friday. Again. 

So yesterday was an interesting show. A nice fat open, that looked pretty good, then a nasty swoon that took all that green away and for all intents, looked like we were going to  roll over red again. But no, they halted the slide and started  another low volume creep higher. It became impressive, and we ended the day with the DOW up 181 and the S&P up 23.

Hello all. In a way it feels like yesterday was a Sunday and I'm welcoming you back from the weekend. But no, it's simply a Thursday morning after a big Holiday. So, how was it? Did you have a fun day, full of BBQ, a few beers and good times with friends and family? Or was it just another day?

Good morning all, and welcome to another week in market land. I truly hope your weekend was a good one. Down here in hot and humid Florida all our plans got "washed out" big time. 

Saturday was running around day, doing some groceries and what have you. That was supposed to set us up for going bike riding and beaching after Church on Sunday. Well, mother nature had different plans. Right at about noon time things started looking nasty and at about 1 pm the rain and thunder rolled in. But that was just the prelude. At about 2 pm, the mother of all lightening storms descended on us, with bolt after bolt hitting trees and the ground in our area.

Good morning all, I hope your weekend was terrific. Mine was not. 

This past week I had taken my mom to the doctors twice, for a nasty "goopy" cough, and Friday they didn't like it at all. So, Mom spent Friday afternoon/night, Saturday and Sunday in the Hospital. We got her back Sunday evening, but frankly she didn't look as well as I'd hoped. 
On the Uncle front, we got a call Friday night that he's taken a really bad turn for the worse. Poor guy, the end is very near.  I truly hate cancer.

Morning all, welcome to another day. 

Well now, hows about that?  Yesterday  I was whining about the idea that there wasn't any volume, and that the market had gotten up to last Monday's intra day high and then faded off.

Hello all, and yes it's another Friday already. Frankly I'm having a hard time coming to grips with the idea that we're already in May. 

So yesterday was what exactly? Test day, again? We bobbled around the DOW 200 day for a while, then we plunged through it big time. But they weren't ready for it to roll over for good and they clawed the DOW from a low of - 393 points, to being green by 5.

Good morning all, and welcome to another day in the bizarro land of markets. 

So, yesterday the market was on fire. Up and up it went, pushing through + 200, then +300 and then +400. They were determined to get back that big dump out we had on Friday.

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday. 

NOTE>>> yesterday afternoon, around market close time, word hit the wires that there was an active shooter that had shot up some folks at the Youtube office in San Bruno California. I find that timing interesting, because I wrote tonights commentary yesterday afternoon, just an hour before this incident. It is/was about guns and killing.
