Speaking of Irrational Entities

On this fine Monday morning, geopolitics slams the market, again, or so the media is suggesting. I am not sure why the news from either Ukraine or Gaza would be pushing the market down, as nothing is radically different this Monday morning as it was on...

More Earnings Coming, So Sit Tight

The market opened as I expected it would, drifting into the red zone. The news about US and Europe getting on to sanctions for Russia’s behavior in Ukraine is bad news that bites hard in this current market environment.  Even the good news, (actual news,...

Earnings and Deals, It’s All Good

I am not familiar with Lindsay Technical Analysis, but on an intraday basis, the DOW eclipsed the July 3 high this morning. If it closes higher than that high today, does it mean that this time frame for a market top (July 20) has “expired," just as the...

Yup, We Have a Snort and Growl Market

The market opened with good news from Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, and Johnson and Johnson. All reported solid earnings and in two cases, “blew away EPS and revenue estimates”. So far, earnings have pointed to solid. Then why is the market blue this...

Let It Go – You Will Feel Better

I am back from my four-day sailing trip to the San Juan Islands in Washington’s Puget Sound. As of last night, I had full Internet, almost solid cell reception (another story for another time) and “unlimited” power. I have to be honest, it felt good to...

I Will Enjoy My Sailing Trip

Yar there, all you landlubbers. It’s me, not-even-close-to Captain Ed coming from Rosario, a small port in the Islands of San Juan. I don’t have much time, battery, or signal, so today’s missive will be short and, well short.  As long as I have been...

What’s Left to Kill the Market?

Well, we did not get it all back yesterday, but most of what was lost the day before that returned. And why did the market not devolve further, especially since the Fed announced it has a plan to exit its loose money policies? The Federal Reserve has...

Still, No Reason to Panic

No news is good news, right? Well, maybe not? From what I can tell, the lack of definitive news from either of the two Fed voices yesterday may have been bad news. Then again, maybe the market is, well, just being the market. With nothing to grab onto...

Is Normal Coming Back To the Market?

Okay, so now we are getting somewhere. The market seems to be acting normal. Two down days in a row seems normal, given the recent crossover to the Land of Lofty Heights. The catalyst for today’s move, according to the news anyway, is the earnings...

Earnings Might Mean Buckling Up

Long weekends are always nice, but they are always better if one can actually lounge around, not lounge around, or do both. My weekend felt as if the former was out of reach and the latter was dominant. We are going on vacation tomorrow and I had to...

Enjoy the Market and the Fourth of July

I am not sure where to go this morning, I mean with my writing about the market. I want to say, “Take that, all you doomsayers.” I want to tell “The Donald” he is way out of his league when he discusses the economic state of the US, meaning, quit telling...

The Gas Pedal is Down, But Why?

Flat is the word. Yes, flat describes yesterday’s market, and it might have applied to the market today, given the state of the futures just before the bell.   Traders are waiting on the data due out this morning with a bid under the futures. The data...
