Good morning everyone, welcome to the day. 

So, I guess we could call yesterday "pink". The NASDAQ was slightly red, the S&P slightly red, and the DOW slightly green. I guess that in this run up, that's about all the "pause" we're going to get.

September Slam?
 
NOTE>> Today is the 15th anniversary of 9/11.  There will be solemn observances of this event going on all across America. By all means, take your moments to pay homage to the thousands of people who were killed, and the tens of thousands that mourn the loss of their loved ones. The criminals will be outted one day...but for today, just pray for those in pain.

Good morning all, welcome to Thursday.

So yesterday they pulled the magic levitation levers late in the session and reversed a 6 point S&P dump.  When the final bell rang we were statistically unchanged on the day. Then last night we had the interesting "town hall" interview between Hillary and Trump. I found it interesting.

Good morning all.....

It's Friday, and not a day too soon.

You all know the plot. The market is being tossed around on the whims of oil prices and what's happening with the Greece situation. Neither of those issues are going to be solved today, so you can certainly expect a bit more chop. However we also have the issue of technical levels to deal with. While the S&P has managed to keep itself above the December resistance at about 2094, the DOW hasn't been able to cross that level.

Good morning all, it is indeed Friday and it is also "jobs day". But before we get into that, let's quickly chat about where things are and how they got there....

As they manufactured the latest rally, I mentioned several times that we had very established "levels" we'd need to break for either a market breakout, or a breakdown. ON the bottom end of the range it was the December lows that needed to hold. They were/are at 1990ish on the S&P.  At the top end of the range, we had the January highs at 2064. 

So after testing the lows back on Monday, we've soared over 800 points and yesterday the S&P closed at 2062, just two points below the upper boundary

Oil and the Big Save

Please don’t take this the wrong way folks, but it has to be said. On Sunday I laid out the numbers that we had to hold, or we very well could have been facing a serious market decline. I titled the letter “Crash alert – High”  I  was NOT predicting a crash in that letter. I was saying that we had very important technical levels that had to hold or we could then see a much deeper correction.  A lot of folks evidently didn’t pay attention to that part. All they saw was “crash” not the levels that needed to break to create one.

On Monday the market fell right down to those levels. Then it chopped around for hours as the “fight was on” between shorts and longs. We had fallen 120, then bounced for 100 then went red again by 40.  The day was very “up in the air” as to where it was going to go. But very late in the session, the FT put out a headline that the Greeks had changed their tune and weren’t lobbying for total debt relief, and willing to work out a repayment schedule. That was the “hot button” the market needed to blast higher off those numbers.

Technology Take Over…


Sometimes it is hard for me to keep my head buried in the place it is supposed to be, that being this thing we call economics and the financial structure. Why? Because each moment that passes is a new milestone for us. In other words, today we know more than we did yesterday. Tomorrow we will know more than we did today. Each day that goes on brings us new intelligence, new questions, new experiences. Sometimes the changes that are brought by these new events leads us to tremendous investing opportunities.  Who wouldn't have wanted to be on the ground floor when Polaroid camera debuted its new technology? Who wouldn't have wanted to be an "Angel" investor in Johnson and Johnson back in 1885 when they were creating the first "ready to use" bandages? Who wouldn't have wanted to be the first investors in this new upstart called "MicroSoft" so many years ago?  

1.2.2015 Starting off with lousy reports Bookmark

One might have thought that after setting record after record on the S&P during 2014 that maybe, just maybe we'd see some better economic reports. But no, we come into the first day of trading and what do we see? The PMI missed estimates, the ISM missed estimates and the construction spending fell to 6 month lows.

Good morning all, welcome to a new week....

Everyone knows about last week. It was the worst performance of the S&P in over two years. We saw something like 700 points flee the DOW. It was indeed the very sell off that we expected the week before, it was simply postponed a week.

There's a lot of reasons why we got the sell off. Profit taking, locking in yearly performance, tax selling, crashing oil prices and a host of other reasons. The only important question is this... is the selling over? I don't truly know that answer, but I can give my guess/opinion about it.

Morning all, welcome to a new day.

The world is certainly a funny place right now. Overnight we saw PMI's come in below estimates from Europe to China, to Japan. That along with the fact that the Fed's minutes didn't contain any hints of keeping rates at zero for ever, or even the slightest mention of board members considering QE...has the futures a bit underwater. At 8 am we have the DOW off 60 and the S&P off 8.
