Real Positive Returns and Media Streaming

This morning I woke up to a foreign computer. Well, “foreign” is not exactly the right word; rather the screen lacked a number of items normally on my screen, such as my Think or Swim trading platform. A quick reboot fixed the problem, but a couple of...

Seven Years Is Forever in the Market

It is Monday, and the world did not change much over the weekend. Today’s opening in the market suggests it too has not changed much since last week – volatility still marks its personality. Steady as she goes is not the applicable phrase … yet. A...

Uncertainty Breeds Caution and Rightfully So

So, we get a day off tomorrow, which makes the work week shorter and the weekend longer. It’s weird, I know, but I like that notion – a longer weekend. It’s just as well with this week in the market. A fella could feel a bit seasick if he hadn’t been on...

Rising Wages Are Good, Right?

Yesterday, I wrote the line below to help articulate why the market trend will resume its upward position sooner rather than later. U.S. consumers grew more confident in the labor market last month, with younger workers in particular seeing a greater...

I’d Rather Go Outside to Work

Honestly, some days “at the office” are boring. Today is one of those days. The market is going off in the opposite direction from yesterday’s over-reaction to the recent pullback, and that leaves me doing nothing because I don’t where this is all...

Finding the Chinese Solar Trade

This Tuesday morning starts with a battle, a fight between the bears and the bulls for control of the recent market trend. The early advantage went to the bulls, but the bears quickly came back. That quick and powerful response to the bull’s early...
