Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. 

Okay, so we had a roller coaster day yesterday. Up 200, then up just 70, and rounded out the day up 140.  The S&P pulled off something of a win, as it managed to close "over" that 2815 level that had been such a resistance in the past.

Good morning all, welcome to the first trading day of the week. Naturally I hope your extended weekend ( If you actually had one) was fantastic.  

Down here in FL, mother nature put on another one of her shows, with clear blue sky and temps in the low 80's. This is why FL is still the fastest growing state, people up north are increasingly tired of the snow, ice and sub 0 temps.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Thursday and all the fun you can stand. 

Okay, maybe not "all" the fun you can have. Ha. 

The futures this morning have been fading since I first looked at 5 am. At that early hour, the DOW was off just 20, and now as I write this at 8 am, they're down to where the implied open is - 125.

Good morning everyone, welcome back from your weekend. As is habit, I truly hope it was a great one for you all. Down here in not so sunny Florida, we're still battling the weather and the red tide. In the 12 years that we've lived down here, this is by far the worst summer we've ever seen. Not only is the rainy season "different" this year, the red tide has been horrific.

Boom!

 

I think you’ll find the best part of today’s letter is that it’s going to be pretty short.  I had a nice article all finished up to send for this evening, but I wrote it in my home office, and simply forgot to forward it to my wife’s office.

Hello all, we've stumbled into another Friday. 

Yesterday they "saved" S&P 2800.  For a brief time, we traded below that level, but they came in and boosted it back over.  Despite the save, they ended the day with the market red across the board. Not terribly deep red, as the DOW was only down 134 and the S&P was down 11.

Venezuela and You

 

There’s a particularly wonderful gal that works in my wife’s office, who does the scheduling for her. My wife owns a small business called “A Better Solution” which revolves around homecare. We’re the people you call when your mom’s got dementia and you don’t want her alone. Or maybe your dad needs a ride to the doctors, or maybe you just got out of the hospital and need a little help with housekeeping and meal prep. Yep, that’s us. ( By  the way, if you’re in need of any services such as that in North Port, Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, etc, give us a call!)

Morning all, welcome to a new dawn. Let's hope it's a good one. 

Yesterday they "did it". They finally got the S&P up and over that bounce "double top" at the 2742 level.  With a gain of 12 points, the S&P held on to the gap opening, and closed out the day at 2746.

The question was and still is, can it hold it? Yes it was a victory getting up there. Yes it was a victory holding into the close.  But you guys all know the drill. One day does not a trend make.

Good morning all, welcome to another day in a Holiday shortened week.

It's been a crazy week so far. Huge down day Tuesday, big up day Wednesday.  So what does today bring us?

Well, the futures are relatively flat this morning. Like so many days, they've improved since 6 am, and now at 8:15 we see the DOW up a couple, the S&P up 1.

I have to figure that we'll see a few more points added to the pot this morning, as they certainly went all in trying to save this thing from rolling over.  With the small caps putting in an all time high, they'll try and use that to pull the rest of the market higher.

There's been a bit of buzz over GM, as Japan's softbank is investing over 2 billion in their autonomous car venture.

Frankly, I'm too old. I don't want a car that drives for me. Hell, I don't even much like being a passenger when someone else drives. But again, I'm old.

I picked up some QQQ yesterday, taking 200 shares at 170.04.

Is there anything else that I want to add out there?

ATHM looks interesting. It broke out yesterday, so lets see if it takes a little dip this am, and then surges again.

CERS is  looking attractive here. It ran up to the 7 dollar level in early May and has been consolidating sideways ever since.  A move over 6.80 could set this one free.

The IBB is the biotech ETF, and it's been trying to make a move lately. Yesterday it did pretty well, and "could" be setting the stage for more. So we'll watch that.

As much as I'm not a big fan of facebook, it is cruched right up against a resistance that it failed at back in early May. We'll need to see if it makes it through.

So, there's things to watch, and as long as we don't get any goofy news out of Italy, we "should" see them try for a few more points.

Let's chat at 10:40 and see where we are.

Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend.  As always, I hope yours was a great one for you. Down here in "not sunny anymore Florida" the switch has been flipped. As I've been mentioning to you, we have a wet season and a dry season. I guess it was about Late October/ early November when we went dry. And dry it was. We didn't have a significant rain event  for months. Then about 10 days ago, "enter the wet" showed up
