Hello everyone, we've made it to Wednesday, in a very peculiar week. 

Yesterday the DOW heaved up 180 points, the S&P fell almost 30. Why? Overhead resistance and a lot of negative noise coming out of the Iran situation, and nothing solid out of the trade situation with China.

 Good morning all, welcome to a new day. 

 NOTE>> My sister ( Yes I have one) is coming to town today to visit with my mom for a week. I've been elected to get her from the airport this afternoon. So, I may not have an afternoon update.

Hello all, another Friday is upon us.


This market is definitely akin to walking a mine field.  After putting in a meager up day yesterday, today we wake to blood red futures. Why? Two reasons actually. The manufacturing numbers out of China were disappointing at best. No one liked that. But secondly, Trump has announced a 5% tariff on Mexico.

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday. 

Yesterday the market was pancake flat from 11 am to about 2 pm. Then things started to erode, and the volume started to rise. After being up as much as + 130 points after the open, the DOW closed DOWN 237 points and LOST its 200 day moving average

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. Was it a good one for you? I hope so. 

Ours was very enjoyable, especially Sunday when I did my second "bike to the beach" since my PE's and DVT. The highlight of the day wasn't the ride, nor the one mile walk on the beach, or even the sun and waves. The star of the day was an Osprey that alit on a palm tree stump not 10 feet from us, and sat there for 35 minutes, completely un-phased by us.

Another Friday is upon us, what will this one bring? 

Well the games have begun. What games? You know the one's, like where the market is falling like a rock and then we hear jawboning about the "trade talks going well," and we soar for 300 points.

Good morning all, welcome back from your Mother's day weekend. I hope it was a great one for you and all the mom's.

Ours was wonderful. Saturday wasn't terribly special, we did our normal running around, shopping, etc. The highlight of the day was a really nice Saturday evening service at a local church we like. It was a pretty moving message.  Afterwards,  I did get to watch some good UFC fights , so that was great. Actually Saturday was pretty darned good.

Hello everyone. 

So yesterday, after that wicked dump at the open, they spent the rest of the day clawing and dragging it back towards flat. While they didn't get things green, we gained over 300 from the bottom on the DOW. So it was clear the dip buyers were trained to do their job. 

One might have thought that there would be some follow through this morning, but no. We're looking at the DOW down 170. What's the issue here?

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a great one for you. 

Down here, it was "okay" but not great. Saturday my wife had an industry "event" to  go to, where people in the Healthcare industry set up their tables and wares, and explain to people what they do. She was to be there all alone in her "booth" from 8:30 to 3 PM. So, I sort of surprised her. I got my running around done by noon and my younger son drove me the hour + to the event.  She was indeed surprised to see us!

Another Friday is upon us, but not just any Friday, it's the first day of earnings Friday. 

Interestingly the futures were absolutely on fire ahead of the first report out of JP Morgan. We had the DOW futures up 158 at 6:30.
