Good morning all.  First off let's start with yesterday. 

On Monday, the DOW gave up 177 points in what could only be called "controlled demolition". by that I mean that an awful lot of stocks actually rose higher, including some of the names we were holding. So it wasn't widespread selling.

Morning all, welcome to the madness. 

Okay, so the first thing that happened was that yesterday the market started getting a little fidgety over interest rates. The ten year had already broken over 2.7%, and we have Janet Yellen coming out on Wednesday to talk about interest rates. With the market at nosebleed levels and the supposed growth we're getting, some in market land got a little spooked and locked up some profits. The feeling was "What if Yellen ends her term being a hawk and wants even more rate hikes??"  It spooked them.

Hello everyone, welcome to Tuesday. 

So I woke up at 6 am and as is my norm, I wandered into the office and flipped on a monitor to see where the futures were. They were flat, with the indexes literally almost unchanged. But as time went on, they started to fade some and then we found "one" of the reasons. Janet Yellen had opened her mouth about stock prices and P/E ratio's.

Hello everyone, welcome to a new day.

Yesterday the market went to sleep. There is always some movement "somewhere" no matter how flat the indexes are, and we saw that in a few individual names.  But overall it was a lackluster session.  I think the reason the market was so flat, was because it was divided 50/50 over what the hell Yellen actually said. Some think she was hawkish, some dovish. So, they didn't quite know how to respond.

Hello all, good morning to you. 

So, we got past Yellen and her FOMC cronies.  The "plan" they say, is to start taking down their balance sheet in October, an exercise that will last a long long time. We also learned that 12 of 16 Fed heads still favor another rate hike this year.

Hello all, it's yet another Friday.  I don't know how they can appear so quickly, but indeed this one has already arrived. 

Yesterday, there was no bounce, but there wasn't any real washout either. When the final bell rang, we had the DOW off 28 and the S&P down 5.  I think they're all focused on Jackson Hole and all the big movers and shakers that are speaking there.

Hello everyone, we've made it to another Friday, as they just seem to roll on by so fast. 

As I mentioned several times yesterday, we had a 2 man crew at my Mom's house to replace an aging air conditioner system. It truly was a breath of fresh air to see two young men that were conscientious, polite, knowledgeable, able and thorough.  It was a big job, and took all day, but when they were done, not only did it work better than we had hoped, the installation looked like it could be the centerfold for "how to do things right".  I was duly impressed.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday. 

NOTE>> As I warned the other day, I'm going to be a bit distracted today, as we have a crew coming to my mom's house to replace her entire A/C system, including adding more ducting and returns. It's a pretty big job and I'll be there to keep an eye on things. Of course I'll be on line, and doing my thing, I'm just suggesting that I could be off on timing of my updates, etc.
