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.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I truly hope it was a good one for you all. Down here in Florida, the weather God's smiled on us about as nicely as one could ever ask. Both Saturday and Sunday started out cool and brisk, not a cloud in the sky, and warmed up to that perfect mid 70's temp that everyone loves.  You don't know how much I wish that weather was the standard down here! But no, in a very short period of time, we'll be back to baking in 94 degrees and 85% humidity. So as you can imagine, we're "all about" enjoying this as much as we can.

Hello everyone, welcome to Thursday. 

Yesterday was a hot mess. A big start to the day fizzled  out,  and the session was dominated by long periods of sagging, followed by push attempts. At  one point in mid session the S&P had gone red and the DOW was only up 14, before they rescued things for the close.

Morning all, welcome to the madness. 

Okay, so the first thing that happened was that yesterday the market started getting a little fidgety over interest rates. The ten year had already broken over 2.7%, and we have Janet Yellen coming out on Wednesday to talk about interest rates. With the market at nosebleed levels and the supposed growth we're getting, some in market land got a little spooked and locked up some profits. The feeling was "What if Yellen ends her term being a hawk and wants even more rate hikes??"  It spooked them. 

9.20.2017 - Free Investing Newsletter is up! Bookmark

Hey folks, just a quick note that the latest edition of the free newsletter is up. Tonight we're talking about the madness/problem that is indeed North Korea, and then of course in the market section, we discuss the Fed's latest meeting.

Today the FOMC released their statement concerning lessening their balance sheet and what they see with rates. Then Yellen held a press conference to calm everyone down and get the market back into the green. Give it a read, it's worthy.

Good morning folks, welcome to Hump day, and of course the day that the FOMC tells us what they're going to be up to. Yes the little trolls at the Fed are going to wrap up their two day meeting and tell us what they chatted about. Will there be a rate hike? Nah. But I do expect them to at least hint around the edges concerning the reduction of their balance sheet. Wall Street probably won't care.

Good morning everyone, get ready for a wild open. 

6.14.2017 - The Fed's hiked rates today. Bookmark

 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.

Chicken Little
 
The story of Henny Penny, also called Chicken Little, or sometimes Chicken-licken (not to be confused with “Finger-licken” from Kentucky Fried Chicken), the terrified little chicken convinced that the sky is falling and that life as we, or at least as chickens know it, is over... is so common that “the sky is falling!” and “Chicken Little” and related names have become bywords for fearmongering, and the often tragic results that occur.
