NOTE>> A big Thank you to the folks that were generous enough to use the donate button to send some hurricane relief. I mentioned Sunday that I'd use any donate money to buy "stuff" for the people more inland than us who really got waffled in Irma. I want you all to know that yesterday afternoon, I took almost 900 dollars worth of food to 4 families that had lost almost everything in River floods. Thanks folks, you've been a blessing.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

So today is Fed day. The Fed's spent yesterday chatting about what they're going to do with rates and QE policy. Today we get to hear the results.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a pleasant one for you all. I've written enough Hurricane news for now, so let me just say all is getting better day by day.  The ONLY fly in the ointment I see right now is that today at 10 am, they're going to turn off the power for about 3 hours, as they have to replace a couple "sewer lift stations" in our area. 

But at least it's scheduled, not some "out of the blue"  power outtage.

Well now. This is interesting isn't it. 

Yesterday they had all the chances in the world to sell the market. In the morning, they did just that. But then they slowly came in and worked it right back up, pulling off a 3 point S&P gain and just a one point DOW loss.

 Yes  the FOMC hiked rates today. Does it matter? What's the ramifications? Why have so many big name investors been screaming about a market crash coming? Is the Fed going to hike us into recession? Are we really in a recession, but they've papered it over? We chat about all of this in today's free newsletter. Take a few minutes to peruse it and see what you think.

Happy Tuesday to ya.....

Yesterday we closed out the day flat.  The DOW slipped by 22, the S&P by 3. It was another in a long string of low volume pause days.  I'm not positive but I think it was the second lowest volume day of the year.

The Commercial/Selling a Put
 
I got an email the other day from a gent who was watching TV, and a commercial came on. In that “financial” based commercial, there was a conversation between a client and what appears to be either his broker, or advisor. In the flow of conversation, the advisor says to the client, “well we might consider selling a put...”  to which the client says something like “that’s an interesting idea.”

Hello folks, is today the day? 

Yesterday was an incredibly boring event, and when it was over the DOW lost 19, the S&P lost 4. Overnight the European markets were generally higher, leading to green futures for us here in the states. At 8 am we have the DOW up 60, the S&P up 6

Hello all, welcome to Fed day.  Yes, today is the day that we'll see our first rate hike in exactly one year.  

Last December, no one thought they'd hike rates, but I continued to say that they would and for just a couple reasons. First, the .25 basis point hike would do nothing and second...they had talked about hiking for so long that if they didn't do it, people might actually start laughing at their analysis of things.
