For The Record …

For the record, bad geopolitics, and that includes open warfare, tick me off. Just when the world settles down from a “crisis,” up pops another and there goes the price of oil, again. Brent crude rose to $110 a barrel on concern geopolitical tension in...

Making Money Long and Short Term

This morning, I reread yesterday’s thinking about the market and I noticed a glaring omission. I should have written a corresponding sentence to offset the following. Yet, whenever a positive catalyst appears, the market seems to run with it. The above...

Where Are We Now?

Okay, so yesterday, I wrote that if the Dow crossed the 17,000 barrier today, the market would be off to the races, more or less. Well, unless we see a reversal of sentiment today, it appears the Dow will not cross that barrier. After U.S. gross...

The Next Leg Up Toward the Future?

First things first this morning, I have two questions. Will the Dow climb above 17,000 tomorrow and will the Dow remain above 17,000? Actually, I have one more question – is this the beginning of the leg up that has long been in waiting? I am sure the...

Get On Board, Get Down With This Reality

So, last night, I went to the 8th-grade dance as a card dealer, and it was kick. Watching the future revel and let loose was fun, but something else made me smile as well. The band consisted of 8th grade kids, and they were good. Interestingly, though,...

Where Are We and the Market Going?

Today is the last day of school for our 14-year old. He is moving on from the 8th grade to high school, after a long summer of play, that is. Tonight is the dance, the last festive and public gathering for this 8th-grade flock of budding teens. I have...

Follow the Money, or Don’t

One of the maxims in this business is “Follow the money.” One cannot do this on a general basis, meaning the “money’ is not a singular entity that moves from here to there. Market money flows much like tributaries from a major river, away from the...

Go With the Flow of Summer

Irony is a word a writer can love, true, but as a concept, most anyone can appreciate it. I find the market unsettling, which I find ironic. The irony here is in the process of settling into its new higher levels, the market is acting unsettled....

It’s Another Monday …

It’s another Monday, and if my research is correct, today is one more blah day in many for most all of us. The average person will see about 4,040 Mondays in their lifetime. And outside of the few short years before you start school and the time you...

Stick With the Fundamental Numbers

Does anyone remember the word “jones,” as it relates to addiction, or, perhaps more accurately, intense desire? Back in the day, we would say, “I am jonesing” for this or that, meaning we needed to have it to satisfy an intense desire. The market is...

Let’s Just Chill Out

Goodness, the weather has been stunningly beautiful here in California. It is one big reason I live here. Okay, so the weather is good and the market is, well, shoring up, two good things to start this Wednesday.    This just in… We interrupt your...

The Rest of the Story

Man-oh-man, three-day weekends blast right by. I mean I get all relaxed and the next thing I know I am watching the market flow and typing away. Oh! Speaking of that, watching the market flow, that is, it is off to a big start this morning. The S&P...

Something Is in the Air

I feel a shift in the air, a slight breeze coming from the north, the land where markets settle in, where markets find a place to roost. Maybe it is just wishful thinking, my optimistic view portraying something that is not real, but it appears to me...
