7.24.2019 - The Triple Play Bookmark

The latest issue of the Financial Intelligence Report is up, and in this one we discuss the concept that we could be looking at 3 separate "market friendly" events starting Thursday the 25th. We have the ECB making statements about policy, then Friday we have a delegation going to China to discuss trade, and then next Wednesday we get our own Fed moving on rates. 

 

I discuss the options and no pun intended, how we're using options to play it.

The Triple Play?

 

Hey, before we get into today’s article, I want to pass along something that I find interesting. Maybe it can help you or a family member.

Good dawn everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday just couldn't quite get its act together. There were a few brief flurries higher, but all in all, it just couldn't pull off any traction. I especially didn't enjoy the roller coaster in the last 40 minutes or so. 

I didn't want to hold my positions into the close if the DOW was down over 200 or the S&P was down over  18. Those last 20 minutes of the day saw them lose those levels, then attempt a pretty decent bounce, lose it again and finally end the day just barely above those levels.

As you all know, I like nothing better than to ‘help folks out” and over the years I’ve written a lot about such things as disaster prep, home security, self defense, etc. Over the past several years, I’ve written a couple times about emergency communications, and even had some “ham” operators in studio when I was doing my radio show a couple years back.

Morning all. 

This is not how I wanted my day to start. As I mentioned to you all on Monday, my Uncle Rob is losing a battle with cancer. Last night things got worse, and I think the stress really weighed on my mom. The poor gal was up all night, coughing and hacking. That's disturbing for an 89 year old, and she's not doing very well this am.  I suspect that I'll be taking her to the doc's today. 

Okay, so the futures are green at 8:00 am. That's pretty interesting because of the news we got out of Europe.

Hey Folks, the latest Free Investing Newsletter is posted. In this one, we talk about "This guy Trump" Is he good? Is he as bad as Robert De Nero says? Wasn't the North Korea thing worth something? Or are the liberal leftists right, and he "gave away too much for nothing concrete in return?
 

I think those people are nuts. Are you telling me that on the very first time a sitting US President meets with the Leader of NK, they should have 70 years worth of hostilities worked out, a timeline for denuking, a panel of investigators, etc? Give me a break. How about fist things first?? How about just getting to the table without killing each other??  

 

So, we talk about that. Then in the Market commentary, we talk about the Fed's hiking rates, and what Powell had to say in his Q&A press conference. He was definitely more "hawkish", but the market gave him a bit of a pass. However on Thursday, Mario Draghi and the ECB are supposed to start laying out their plans to taper their own QE programs. Is the market going to accept that as well? We talk about that and a lot more, so give it a read.

Hello all, are you ready for another installment of "this rising market?"  Because judging by the futures, we're about to see another big up day. 

Or not.

Well good morning all. 

I've only seen a market response like we got yesterday, on Fed decision days to CUT interest rates. But this time around, we got a market rally on the decision to HIKE interest rates. Up is down, round is blue and sweet is bumpy.  Everything's crazy.

Hi everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

Yesterday was pause day with a twist, "someone" took some profits, and for a while the indexes were deep in the red. Once again we had to try and figure out if it was a one day wonder, or the start of something bigger. My guess was that it wasn't the start of the end, however we did need to be cautious just in case.

Hello everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

After two days of soggy action, they weren't about to make it three and they came in pretty heavy yesterday. We closed the show with the S&P gaining 13, the DOW up 66 and the NASDAQ up 40. Naturally, that equates to "all time highs". Again. For about the 20th time this year.
