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

Good morning everyone, welcome to Wednesday.  

Yesterday was a low volume session, where the indexes hovered around the unchanged line for most of the day. While they did manage to tack on 11 DOW points and 5 S&P's, it was a tough session to endure. We only beat Friday's volume by a few million shares, making it one of the lowest volume days of the year.

Good morning all, welcome to another day. Let's hope it's not as boring as yesterday!  Sheesh!  Yesterday the volume on the SPY was just 12 million at 1 pm. They finally picked up the pace late in the session ( that's when the Central banks do their buying and most company orders for buy backs take place) but it still ended the day at just 51 million.  That might be the second lowest of the year

Good morning all, welcome to another day....

Yesterday was the lowest volume day of the year. The day before that was up until then, the lowest volume day of the year. Last week if you take out the options expiration day, we had the lowest volume days of the year.

Yet the market has held up remarkably.

Hello all, welcome to Yellen day....

Tuesday was the lowest volume day of the year. Monday was the second lowest volume day of the year.  No one wanted to make a move ahead of the Fed. Well, today is decision day.

There's a lot of things in play right now. The Fed's are in a strange predicament as they've told the world we're doing really well, with virtually "full" employment. Yet that doesn't jive with 0.25% interest rates.  It looks stupid.  So for them to continue to "wait" on normalizing rates, just lends to the idea that the Fed's are happy rigging the markets higher
