Hello all, we've made it to Fed day. 

So, last night AAPL beat the estimates and the stock was up big after hours. This morning AAPL is indicated to be up 9 bucks a share, and all that joy and giddiness has spread through the rest of the market. At 8 am we see the DOW implied to open +73 and the S&P up 6.

Good morning all, let's get to it. 

First off, Capital One has announced that they've been hacked and the information of some 100 million people was compromised to some extent. If you're a capital one card holder, or have a vehicle loan through them, I'm sure that Cap one will be sending you instructions to get free credit monitoring.

Hi all, it's another  Friday. 

So yesterday they put on a pout party. Why? Well when Mario Draghi didn't cut rates, and only talked about doing so in the near future, the initial reaction was "okay that's good enough,"  But as the morning went on they started to grumble about it and by mid afternoon, we had the DOW off 200. I guess they wanted to show our own Powell that not acting quickly will be met with selling.

The Triple Play?

 

Hey, before we get into today’s article, I want to pass along something that I find interesting. Maybe it can help you or a family member.

Hello everyone, are you ready for another chapter of "how the market turns?"  Good, because the crazy is already in place. 

I woke up this am, fully expecting flat to red futures. Instead I saw the DOW futures up almost 100. I really didn't think it could be follow through from Powell yesterday, as we only had a mildly green day after his talk.

Today's letter is up, and in the commentary section I reply to a reader who asked about what should go in to a "go bag" if your area is being threatened by a hurricane, wild fire, superstorm, etc. So I go over the most important things you have to consider for a go bag.

Negative
 
Here’s something you don’t hear about on your 6 pm news. The amount of sovereign debt trading with a negative yield hits an all- time high. Yes folks, negative interest rates.

*FRENCH 10-YEAR BOND YIELD FALLS TO 0% FOR THE FIRST TIME
*SWEDISH 10-YEAR BOND YIELD FALLS TO 0% FOR FIRST TIME
*AUSTRIAN 10-YEAR BOND YIELD FALLS BELOW 0% FOR FIRST TIME
 
Are you seeing a trend here? Good, because whether you want to believe it or not, we’re going to be experiencing negative interest rates here too. It’s simply a matter of time.

Hey everyone, in today's FIR, we look at what's happening in Venezuela and ask the question, could it happen here? Spoiler: Yes it could. The war between the left and the right is going to get brutal in the next year and a half, and all hell could break loose. 

 

Then we talk about Powell and the FOMC meeting today. As I suggested, there was no rate hike or rate cut. But some of the things Powell did say, was indeed noteworthy.

Good morning all, welcome to the first day of the FOMC meeting, which is also known as Tuesday. 

Yesterday the market was hugging the flat line for hours, which made perfect sense. Why did that make sense? Well, we had broken out over resistance, and it is usual and common to simply pause and catch its breath.
