Hello all, welcome to a new dawn. 

Today might get a little goofy for me, as my sister ( Yes I have one sister) is flying in today to help with "Mom" for a couple weeks. Mom is still scheduled to be released from rehab tomorrow. Since we have an extra car here, instead of renting something, she'll use that. But it means running over and getting her from the airport.  No worries.

Good morning folks, we've made it to another Friday. 

The news will be dominated by all the blather coming out of Jackson Hole WY today. Once a year all the big movers and shakers gather there to bloviate about the economy, policy, and what they think they see for the future.  But there is an interesting twist to this years meeting. Some of the movers and shakers "didn't come".

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday. 

Remember a while back I was saying that the Bank of International Settlements was making noise that it was "time" to start taking some of the excess out of the market? They meant it might be time to start "normalizing" things such as rates, and reducing asset balance sheets. Well the markets have ignored them. Here's a blurb about what the BIS was thinking:

Good morning all and a happy new week to you.  As is the case, I truly hope you all had a blessed weekend and enjoyed yourselves. I won't grumble about the weather ( Yeah I will, shut down AGAIN from biking or beaching, as we had wicked boomers on and off from 5:30 am each day!)  but I will say I had a lot of fun on Saturday evening as our friend Ted came to visit, watch some UFC fights and have a great chat.  So, while the weather once again put our outdoor activities on hold, it didn't stop  me from making a big pot of sausage and meatballs, which thank goodness, turned out pretty good. 

6.28.2017 - Is DOW 50K Coming? Bookmark

Think about it. Is it possible? Can this market go to DOW 50K?  In today's letter we are looking at the reason that it "could" if certain criteria are met. Then of course we talk about the arguments against such a thing happening. I know it sounds absolutely insane to consider a market at 50K, but this is a different world.  This isn't 1980 folks. In 2017 Central banks are buying stocks. Over in Europe, Draghi is still pumping 65 billion a month into markets. They now own 10% of ALL European corporate debt. 

 

This is a new world. A scary world. Give it a read folks, this could be important.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

So yesterday the market was hugging the flat line for most of the day, and then late in the session oil puked, and fell by the most in over a year. That got everyone's attention and they scrambled to take some stock off the table. This morning oil is again a bit weak. So we've got WTI at 49.07.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. Did you spend a large part of it putting up lights and rummaging around in the attic for Holiday decorations?  That was my destiny this weekend. The wife is a little under the weather, so the bike/beach was out. I figured I'd best use this time to get a start on all the Holiday madness.  Oh well, it's a wonderful season. 

Yesterday was the big Vote in Italy I mentioned to you  Friday and again in the newsletter. I had a pretty good hunch they'd vote NO on the idea of even more Government and more attachment to the EU. Well at about 6 pm Eastern time the vote was called. It was a resounding NO. In fact it was a land slide no.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

So last night was the third and final debate. It didn't have the fireworks that many were expecting, but it was still entertaining. I do find it funny how the most damaging video one could imagine ( Okeef's underground vid of the people behind the violence at Trump rallies, and how they rig elections for Hillary)  wasn't on any main stream media. but what WAS on the front page of 7 major publications was "Trump won't say if he'll accept the election results".

Rates, or Japan?
 
On September 20 and 21, the Federal Open Market committee meets to discuss monetary policy. Billions of gallons of digital ink, and a thousand hothouses worth of hot air has been spoken concerning whether the Fed's will hike rates for just the second time in 10 years.

So we'll know that answer on Wednesday. Naturally, the common thinking is that "no way" will they hike rates, simply because despite an overpriced stock market, the true economy is grinding and groaning itself lower. Between the retail sales, the productivity, the regional Fed reports, etc, it is clear that on a fundamental basis...they can't hike.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday.

So yesterday they pulled the magic levitation levers late in the session and reversed a 6 point S&P dump.  When the final bell rang we were statistically unchanged on the day. Then last night we had the interesting "town hall" interview between Hillary and Trump. I found it interesting.
