Morning all, another Friday is upon us. 

Did you see it? Did you watch the close yesterday?  

After the Fed's statement on fiscal policy, the market was literally all over the map. It was up and down like a yo-yo.  But in the last hour, things were red. Heading into the close, it looked like we were finally going to get a bit of a red close, after such a big up week.

Venezuela and You

 

There’s a particularly wonderful gal that works in my wife’s office, who does the scheduling for her. My wife owns a small business called “A Better Solution” which revolves around homecare. We’re the people you call when your mom’s got dementia and you don’t want her alone. Or maybe your dad needs a ride to the doctors, or maybe you just got out of the hospital and need a little help with housekeeping and meal prep. Yep, that’s us. ( By  the way, if you’re in need of any services such as that in North Port, Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, etc, give us a call!)

June. It's June. Does that seem right to you? Me neither! How can half the year be just about over?

Anyway, look at the futures. We've got the DOW up 133 at 7 am. Wasn't the DOW down 251 yesterday? It was. So why is it up 133 so far today? What changed? What got cured? 

Nothing.  Just another round of stupid chop.

Good morning all, welcome to another day. 

Yesterday I mentioned a couple times that the market felt heavy to me and I had little trust in it. Yes they shook off the morning sags and got us green for a while. But it didn't last and we spent the bulk of the session hovering around in the red. But later in the session the sellers emerged and at one point I saw the DOW off 326, and the S&P off 20.

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.

I have to change gears a bit today, and respond to a couple e-mails I got over the last several months. While I answered them individually, I think it’s time I present the concepts to everyone.. Here’s the back story:

Hey there everyone, welcome to Wednesday. 

The other day I mentioned that the day ahead of a Fed decision is usually a green day. Well they certainly took that to heart, as the DOW was up over 150 at times and both the DOW and the S&P hit new highs.

Hello folks, welcome to Tuesday. 

Today starts the two day Fed meeting which in my opinion will end tomorrow with a quarter of a point rate hike. In more normal times, the fear of a rate hike would have the market's diving, but as I mentioned Sunday, in this atmosphere of Central bank liquidity, momentum, tax strategies and performance chasing, they'll "probably" ignore this hike.

Guest Article

When I stumble onto something that someone else has written, and I think it’s worthy of consideration, I gladly reprint it and give credit to the author. Below, we have Doug Casey talking about the few Fed head, and what could be coming at us in the next couple years. I think it’s a decent article, and worth the read.

Hello everyone, welcome to Tuesday. 

So I woke up at 6 am and as is my norm, I wandered into the office and flipped on a monitor to see where the futures were. They were flat, with the indexes literally almost unchanged. But as time went on, they started to fade some and then we found "one" of the reasons. Janet Yellen had opened her mouth about stock prices and P/E ratio's.
