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, welcome to Wednesday. 

Yesterday the "market" wanted higher, and the S&P and NASDAQ got there. The DOW couldn't pull it off because of Boeing. 

But I felt that they'd continue to try and get us higher, and this morning we wake to flat futures, that continued rising.

Mornin all!

So it is indeed the "new year" and we can all pray it's a wonderful one for all.

How was your NYE and NYD?  Our Eve was just as I said, fairly subdued. Mom had her birthday dinner, and we all just settled in for the evening. We stopped going out on NYE 25 years ago, and this year was no different.

Morning all, welcome to what I hope isn't as  crazy a day as yesterday. 

If you live on planet earth, you've probably heard by now that the market gained an incredible 547 points yesterday. the S&P powered up with it, and gained 60, blasting through 2800 like a hot knife.

Field Day Follow up
 
Last weekend I had mentioned that on Saturday and Sunday, the 23 and 24th, was going to be the “open house” field day for all the ham radio operators across the country. Once a year, people that enjoy playing with short wave radios, go out into “unusual” areas and set up their equipment, to show how they operate, especially during an emergency.
 
I went to our local club, who had set up at the local Red Cross station. But it was a bit more than that, as I didn’t realize the Red Cross had “donated” a small room in their building, for a permanent “short wave emergency communications” station. We’ll chat about that in a minute.

Hi all, welcome to another day in whacky world. 

Yesterday got pretty interesting. All day long the market was soggy, and then around 3 pm  things really rolled down hill. The DOW was down 495 points, the S&P down 50. It was really interesting to watch. So, they had to pull a rabbit out of the hat and they did that by dragging Navaro on screen to tell everyone that things are fine, we're not heading to a trade war, etc.

Love fest!

Morning all. It seems my suspicions ended up being right. Yesterday, my guess was that they were just going to keep the market flat and await the earnings reports that were to really start flooding us Monday night. In fact, so blatant was the push to keep the market flat, that just 45 minutes from the closing bell, the DOW was down 130 points, the S&P down 10.

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new dawn. 

Yesterday we were witness to the "running of the algo's".  After the big open, the market started to slide. At one point, we had lost more than half of the opening move. But they "came in" and stopped the slide, and as they afternoon wore on, they really piled in.  So, we ended the day with the DOW up 669 points.
