Good morning everyone, welcome to a new dawn. 

NOTE>> Yesterday our Email service was down for a few hours, and email sends were very late. There was all kinds of "net" issues yesterday, as even Twitter was down globally for a couple hours. Sorry about that.

Good morning all, we've made it to another one of those Friday things. Just in time if you ask me. 

Okay, so what about yesterday? I've been saying like a broken record that one day the market will go red and they won't buy the dip. Well the market went red yesterday and they didn't buy the dip. When it was all over we plunged 274 DOW points, and 38 S&P's. The NASDAQ wasn't immune either, it fell 123.  Noticeable was the volume on the SPY.  118 million shares traded.

Good morning all, have you woken up from yesterday's snoozefest? Good!  

Yes it was the flattest of days. It was a low volume sleep fest, and when the final bell rang, we lost 8 DOW points, lost 0.13 S&P's and gained two on the NASDAQ. Yawn. 

The S&P saw its lowest volume day in 12 years. Literally.

Good morning all...Welcome to Wednesday. 

I don't know what sort of voodoo attacked me yesterday, but it didn't end until I went to bed. It started with the garage door opener going crazy yesterday morning. I thought that was the end of it. Ha! No way. Last evening my friend and I went down to Punta Gorda to hear a lecture from Robert Steele. After it was over and we were heading back home, my low pressure tire indicator came on. I was just a few blocks from getting on the interstate and decided to swing into a gas station

Morning all, it's Thursday and all time high day to boot. 

Yesterday, after the FOMC meeting minutes were released the market grumbled for a little while and then decided it was going to go up despite what the minutes said. What better way to respond to the Fed's who stated that they were aware of "asset valuations" being high, than to blst to all time new highs??

Good morning all, happy Tuesday to you. 

What the heck was yesterday? While the NASDAQ continued it's run, the DOW and the S&P were having issues. Yes the DOW only closed red by 27 and yes the S&P actually stayed green by 4. But volume was punk, and overall it was a pretty sorry session.

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new day. 

A test?  Is today going to be a test of the resiliency of the market? I ask that because an article in Zero Hedge last night suggested that the bulk of this volumeless rip higher could be from a giant fund that was "forced" to cover all their shorts. While the mechanics of it do make sense, if it is proven to be true, and the reason that the volumes have been so low is because it's really only a few people and this giant fund "covering shorts".... we could roll over pretty hard.

Hello everyone, we've made it to Friday.  What a week it's been, eh?  Not a day goes by where there's not some drama concerning Donald Trump or the protestors, or what have you.  Then we had a Fed head saying that by reducing the balance sheet they might be able to do QE in the future. Then we had another suggest that a rate hike in March should not be off the table. Not to mention the uproar about Conway suggesting people buy Ivanka's products. Sheesh!

Trying To Remain Festive
 
Hi folks. Yes it’s that odd week; you know the one. The week between the solemn observation of Christ’s birth, and the wild “go for broke” New Year’s eve.  In just 7 days the mood changes from serene and giving, to blatant excess.  I think it would be better to separate the two by 6 months, but I digress.....
 
It’s always an interesting week for me. Generally it is a shortened week as often the market is closed for a day, and even on the days that it’s open the volumes are horrid. Yet it is the week where more times than not the market makes gains. It is referred to as the “Santa Rally.”  Now it is too early to know if this week and the first week of January are really going to give us this so called rally, but my guess is that DOW 20K will be hit. Why? Because they can.  It has no real significance except for goofy people on CNBC to put on DOW 20K hats
