Good morning everyone, we've made it to another one of those Friday things that seem to get here faster each year. 

Except for the flow of earnings releases, the overnight session was pretty quiet. MSFT was the "big one" and they did pretty well. Interestingly, after their release they were up strongly, then faded to go red. This morning they've inched back to green.

Hi everyone.  

Boy am I late this am. The wife is out of town, and I guess subconsciously I must use her morning activity as an alarm clock, because I slept over an hour past normal. If it weren't for the lawn crew making noise, I might still be asleep. Wow.

Hello all, welcome to a new day....

Yesterday spent most of its time trying to decide what it wanted to do. Should the techs fall more, or should they bounce? Should the overall market begin a true correction or should it simply push higher?  By the time the last hour rolled around, it felt pretty clear that they were getting braver and willing to nibble on things. When the session was over, the DOW wasn't down 70+, it was down 36. The S&P which had been down 11 at times... was down 2.  The NASDAQ, which was looking pretty lousy all morning, bounced nicely.

Good morning, happy Wednesday to you....

They tried and tried but couldn't pull it off. They got us to 2400 yesterday and we spent the bulk of the session trying to get past it. We'd bump into it, fade, bump into it, fade....on and on

Good morning all, happy Thursday to you. 


No need to hash out yesterday.  With the buzz about impeachment reaching fever pitch, it was the reason ( or the excuse)  for a high volume sell off.  The SPY traded 172 million shares, the highest volume day we've seen in many months. Most of it to the downside.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. I won't bore you to tears telling you of mine, but I will say thank you to all who wrote in to wish me a happy birthday!  I'll simply say that my wife set up what could only be called a perfect weekend for me, and we really had a wonderful time. I sort of wish it didn't have to end. Oh well, there's always next year...I hope!

Hello everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As always I hope it was a really good time for you and your family. 

Ours was fairly quiet, with nothing major going on. We did get in a really nice 4+ mile walk on Sunday, and the weather held up remarkably well again. But we also know that these wonderful days are numbered. We're just about to enter April and according to our local weather guy, in June the average daytime highs is....90. We're soon to go from high 70's to mid 90's with 80% humidity.  Enjoy this while it lasts Florida folks!

Happy St. Patrick's day everyone.   I very much wish to hope you all the best for your "Holiday".  I read some astounding figures about how much corned beef and cabbage will be cooked up this weekend and it was truly amazing. My wife's half Irish, and yes...at some point this weekend I too will be engaging in some.  ( Note.... If you take a nice slice of corned beef before you drown it in water and the spices, and put it in your smoker (If you have one) it makes a darned tasty snack)

Good morning all, we've made it to Friday and Mr. Market is in a bit of a whiny mood this morning. When I first flipped on the monitors at 6:30, the futures were down 88 on the DOW and 8 on the S&P. Since then they've bounced around a bit, but they're still down

Is It Safe?
 
Monday I was pondering a topic for the International Forecaster. It's a publication that was started by the late great Bob Chapman. I continue to donate articles to it to this day. As I was watching the futures, despite our own market's being closed for Presidents day, I decided to share some thoughts that I shared with my readers last week....
