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.”

Good morning all, welcome to Wednesday, Fed day and the Debt Ceiling day. 

Before I get started, I have to announce this.... The deal is "ON" for us today. This is the important note I posted Monday morning...

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.

Good morning everyone, are you fully prepared for a Post Fed day romp?  Frankly I'm not but, at least for the open that is what it looks like will happen. We have the DOW futures up 70 and the S&P up 8.  All because the Fed's couldn't be independent enough to hike interest rates a quarter of a point.

Lying Fed Heads
 
One of the problems you face when you write a newsletter that goes out to thousands of folks, is that often the things you say...are diametrically opposed to what people have taken as fact for years. Then they have to try and figure out if I’m simply nuts, or maybe they realize that they’ve been shoveled a bucket of horse hockey all those years. It causes stress I’m sure.
 
For instance, we all know that Eve ate an apple in the Garden of Eden right? Well not so fast. She ate from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Not once is it mentioned in the Bible that it was an apple. It probably wasn’t. Yet it’s taken as a generalized fact that she ate an apple.

Global Control?
 
Before we get into today’s chat, I want to mention something. On Wednesday I did a piece about preparing for the possibility of a disaster, where in your tap water is no longer available. Many don’t understand that in a true disaster, often the pumps are shut down, OR, there’s no power to operate them. So finding and filtering water is a very important part of being prepared.

Good morning all, it's Thursday and I'm running late.....

It seems that with the wife still visiting her dad up in NJ,  I don't get awoken by the morning activity, and each day I'm sleeping a bit longer. I haven't used an alarm clock in like... 10 years. Maybe I have to dig one up!

Hello all, welcome back from the weekend. As always I hope it was a good one for you all. My heart goes out to all our friends in Louisiana who have suffered through those horrendous rains. 20 inches in 24 hours is something very few people have ever had to deal with. Down here in Florida, we've been getting torrential rains every day, but at least they're only lasting 45 minutes or so.  It's bothersome, but not threatening. The folks in the New Orlean's area are in trouble.  Our prayers go out to them.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend.... and one that I hope you very much enjoyed. Here at our homestead, Saturday was fairly routine, capped off by a night of Free UFC fights courtesy of Fox. I've been a fan of the UFC since its beginning, mainly because way back in ancient history, your editor spent 3 evenings a week from the age of 11 - 18 studying martial arts. I don't speak of it much, since it was so very long ago, but yes, I hold a black belt in Judo and a second "dan" in jiu-jitsu. However, truth be told I haven't trained in it in over 30 years
