Good morning everyone, welcome to Veterans day.

I tip my hat to all of you who've served in any capacity.  When I was a kid, I thought I was going to follow my cousin and join the Navy when I got old enough. That plan sort of faded off when I met an attractive blonde and I ended up choosing plan option 2, which was to become a jeweler/watchmaker.

Hi all, are you ready for more madness?

So, yesterday the market put in a textbook fade after Thursday and Friday's romp higher. In a normal world I would have suggested that today would be a very strong up day.

Hi all. 

Well I did it!  ( I think I did anyway!)

It took me two hours longer than it takes the wife, but it seems like I got payroll done, I scanned all the activity reports that need to go to clients, sent all the paid invoice notes, etc.

Morning all, welcome back. Did you do anything wonderful this weekend?  I hope so. 

Down here in insanely hot Florida, we had the bright idea that we were going to do a bit of trail hiking. But, when we got to where we were going and got out of the car, it only took us about 5 minutes to realize that 95 degrees and 70+% humidity was simply "not enjoyable." So, we nixed it all, went home and fiddled around the house.

Strap in folks, it's going to be an interesting day for sure.  So, lets lead off with the "big" news. 

The Hong Kong City leader has announced that she will nix the extradition bill that started the hoopla in the first place. While on the surface that sounds incredible, it seems like that was only one of the five demands the protestors had. So, while the HK market loved it and our own futures loved it, it isn't clear that the tensions there will end.

Hi all, it's Friday. Again. 

So the futures are up pretty big. Yesterday we bounced for 100 points, and so far this am, we're indicated to be up another 240. 

What changed?  Not a whole lot, but there's been some things. Naturally, the "phone call" yesterday where the Chinese hoped the US could meet them halfway on trade was one. But then last night, the Chinese Government pushed about 3 billion into their banking system, and Trump said that another phone call with China is planned "very soon."

Morning all, welcome back from your weekend. I hope it was a good one for you all. 

If you remember back to last week, I said that I thought Friday might be a little squishy, because they might not want to take much risk over the weekend, considering the situation in Hong Kong. Well, this weekend sure turned into something bizarre.

Hello all. 

I'm not 100% by a long shot this morning after yesterdays dental surgery. Sleep was a non existent luxury, so I'm really dragging. 

Oh well, this too shall pass.

Civil War, Is it Coming?
 
If you didn’t look for it, you wouldn’t know, and frankly, most don’t look for it. No, most people are quite content to go on with their lives, watch their goofy TV shows, post meaningless junk to face book and think about what beer they’ll buy for the weekend games.
 
The world seems almost perfect to those people. They get up, they say hi to their spouses and 2.4 kids, they walk past the white picket fence and get in their leased vehicle, and head to an office, where they spend a few hours working, and a few hours posting to social media or sneaking porn.

9.29.2014 Futures Red on Hong Kong? Bookmark

This morning we awoke to DOW futures showing a negative 100 points. Well, didn't we just have an almost 200 point gain on Friday? We did. So, what's the Issue??  Let's see....
