The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!

6.13.2018 - Historic Times Bookmark

Hey Folks, the latest Free Investing Newsletter is posted. In this one, we talk about "This guy Trump" Is he good? Is he as bad as Robert De Nero says? Wasn't the North Korea thing worth something? Or are the liberal leftists right, and he "gave away too much for nothing concrete in return?
 

I think those people are nuts. Are you telling me that on the very first time a sitting US President meets with the Leader of NK, they should have 70 years worth of hostilities worked out, a timeline for denuking, a panel of investigators, etc? Give me a break. How about fist things first?? How about just getting to the table without killing each other??  

 

So, we talk about that. Then in the Market commentary, we talk about the Fed's hiking rates, and what Powell had to say in his Q&A press conference. He was definitely more "hawkish", but the market gave him a bit of a pass. However on Thursday, Mario Draghi and the ECB are supposed to start laying out their plans to taper their own QE programs. Is the market going to accept that as well? We talk about that and a lot more, so give it a read.

Morning all, welcome to another day. 

Well now, hows about that?  Yesterday  I was whining about the idea that there wasn't any volume, and that the market had gotten up to last Monday's intra day high and then faded off.

Hello everyone, welcome to hump day.  

Yesterday the market had a bad hair day, and the general excuse is that it was because interest rates continued to climb.  It simply doesn't like seeing the 10 year over 3%.

Good morning all, we've made it to another Friday. 

Okay, so Tuesday we reached down almost to the S&P 200 day. Then Wednesday they let it dip just a bit more before the  rescue kicked in. Yesterday, they figured that everything was just fine and up we went. While we didn't close at the highs of the day, lets not kid ourselves. We gained 238 on the DOW and about 28 on the S&P.

Long Term Holds
 
Quite often we seem to get “accused” of playing only very short term trades, and ignoring the longer term holds. To a certain extent that’s true. Not because we have anything against long term holds, in fact we have several of them in place as we speak. No, the reason we haven’t been focusing on longer term holds lately, is precisely what we saw happen in February.
 
The “correction” that hit in February was the single fastest drop of 10% the market’s really ever seen, and it was obscenely overdue. If you look back at the history of the DOW, what you often see is that somewhere between 8,9, or 10 years into a rising market, it changes direction. Sometimes it’s a simple correction, and sometimes it’s a crash.

Hello everyone, welcome to yet another Friday. 

Another wild day of big dips and big recoveries.  I had a hunch we'd see that, as this is what I said at the 1:15pm update yesterday:

So, we're supposed to get the Presidents declaration on tariff's this afternoon. I imagine that as they leak info, we'll see some more pops and drops. But I also think that the tariff situation will not be as ugly as many think and that they'll end up liking the final product

Good morning all, and what a wild morning it portends to be. 

The futures were up smartly overnight, but then they got "silly" high for a while. The reason? Well in what can only be called a diplomatic victory, Kim Jung Un of North Korea fame has formally hinted that he'd be okay denuclearizing if his regime was allowed to remain stable.  Kim also held out an olive branch to South Korea, suggesting that they should work hard to reunify the peninsula, and attain peace.

So, It’s 2018 Now

 

It’s Monday morning. Right this moment, things don’t feel a lot different than yesterday morning and yet the calendar tells me that it is a “new year”.  Since I didn’t go out and party on New Years Eve, I’m not terribly tired nor hung over. That’s a blessing.  So, what does this thing called 2018 have in store for us?

A lot I imagine.

Humbled
 
At the bottom of every letter, there’s a “donate” button. I put it there about a year ago, because we had folks over the years that tell us “we don’t do any investing, but I like reading your letters, is there any way I can toss you a few bucks?”   

Well this week I got notice of a donation, and figured it had to be a mistake. I’m not talking thousands, but it was quite large, and I contacted the donor. I said thank you for the donation, but surely you made a mistake. He said there was no mistake, and that he has enjoyed our letters and wanted to help keep them coming.  But what got me all emotional was when he said he forwards my letters to his daughters, because he thinks some of them are important enough that he wants them to read it.

Good morning everyone, and welcome to a new day. 

NOTE>>  Today my wife is throwing a little Holiday party for her employees to drop by the office, pick up a gift, and have a bite to eat. So chances are good that I won't be posting an afternoon update, I'll probably be helping her host her little gathering.
