Hey everyone, in today's FIR, we look at what's happening in Venezuela and ask the question, could it happen here? Spoiler: Yes it could. The war between the left and the right is going to get brutal in the next year and a half, and all hell could break loose. 

 

Then we talk about Powell and the FOMC meeting today. As I suggested, there was no rate hike or rate cut. But some of the things Powell did say, was indeed noteworthy.

Venezuela
 
So it's Tuesday afternoon and I'm minding the market, keeping an eye on a couple stocks I'm interested in. Then I start seeing things in my news feeds that are really disturbing. Down in Venezuela, they're on the brink of a civil war, or worse, a clash between loyalists to Maduro, and the new US puppet Juan Guaido.

Mornin' all, welcome to a new day. 

Yesterday they huffed and puffed and inched us to a news all-time closing high on the S&P.

Hello everyone, it's FOMC day. Are you ready?

Frankly I don't know what you should actually be ready for. Yes we're going to get "no rate hike" and yes Powell is going to hold a press conference thereafter.  But are we going to get anything with teeth in it?

Good morning all, welcome to the first day of the FOMC meeting, which is also known as Tuesday. 

Yesterday the market was hugging the flat line for hours, which made perfect sense. Why did that make sense? Well, we had broken out over resistance, and it is usual and common to simply pause and catch its breath.

The Bear Bounce
 
If you're even loosely connected to the stock market, you know that back in December the wheels flew off things. 70% of the listed stocks fell more than 20%. Some fell 50. It was fast and it was harsh.
 
But then the spirits flipped and from the end of December until now, stocks have roared higher. Day after day it seemed, the market could only go up. That of course has the TV stock evangelists proclaiming that the new bull market was back in effect, and we've got years of ever rising stock prices ahead.

Hi everyone, how's your morning going?  Mine took an interesting little twist. 

If I'm not going to my wife's office, I usually play the good husband role and go out and squeegee the car windows for her. Down here in Florida, your car is covered in dew every single day if it's outside and not under a tree or tarp.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Out in California, it certainly isn't a pleasant one. Last night "someone" evidently walked into a "Country" style bar that features line dancing, etc, and started shooting people. Word is 13 dead, many wounded.

Good morning all, welcome to Tuesday. 

Yesterday.  Hmmm. What to think?  

Early in the session, it seemed like they were going to come in and buy the morning dip, and send us up to "flat". But after a brief surge higher, it sort of just evaporated, and as the morning progressed, they accelerated things to the downside. At one point the DOW was down 496 points and the S&P was down 51, when they finally decided to stop the bleeding and get us off those lows. So we ended the day down 335 and 39.
