When It Rains, Plant

As I said when closing yesterday, we are expecting rain here in Central California. It is sorely needed and it appears, the prognosticators will be correct, 100% correct. The grey skies outside my window look threatening, indeed. Two weeks ago, the...

Good News, Bad News, and No News

I am not sure where to go this morning, as the happenings in the world that affect the market are much and interesting, but, in particular, as the market climbs back to its top, the crazies are coming down from the hilltop. Wall Street continues to...

Always, So Much to Think About

And what a fine Monday morning it is … I know why I feel good today, but I am not sure why the market is so up. It is just one of those market days when it says, “I feel good.” So, even if I don’t know what is going on, I do know that my trades are...

Just One Word …

The market this morning is behaving just as I thought it would after yesterday’s afternoon scramble out the door. Smart money waits to buy these days. Soft economic data or not, folks in the know get it – the train is moving forward and the best...

Is Gold Saying Recession?

At the midpoint of this holiday-shortened week, it appears the market is quite calm and, dare I say it, acting rationally. It is taking in the all the news and simply digesting. I suspect the market is also attributing much of the soft economic data to...

More Change, More Opportunity

Scotland, Iraq, Venezuela, Brazil, Bosnia, Thailand, Ukraine, and just about all of the Middle East have something in common – they do not like the status quo in their country.  In all of the above countries, save Scotland, violent protests or armed...

Get on Board with Change

Bob Dylan, the archetype of the 1960’s folk singer and the architect of the folk singer turned rocker ignited his blast to fame with the words, “The times they are a changing”. He was right then, some 50 years ago, and his words ring true today, even...

Monopolies and Change

Back at the height of the Industrial Revolution in the US, oh, say, around the time the big railroads were taking government handouts right and left to connect the east coast to the west coast of the continent, monopolies became a problem. So much so,...

Charting a New Flight

I don’t know about you, but I find that sometimes I feel that certain things in my life become stale. My guess this is true for many folks, since most have jobs and surveys show time and again that people often find their jobs have become stale. The...

Have We Hit The Bottom?

The market is looking to the green again today, even though the employment data that just came out is, again, disappointing. I find it interesting that the market is trying to go up after so much emphasis was put on the employment report this week. It...

Tomorrow, Tomorrow, Up or Down?

The market turnaround today is both expected and unexpected. Simply, I had no clue which way it would go, even though yesterday’s price action suggested the bears were waning and the bulls were gearing up. In any case, it is nice to see a pop, even if...

Green, Red, Green and Red Again

Over the last five years, the stock market has dropped more than 5% eighteen times, and in each case, the market has rebounded to the tune of the S&P 500 rising just under 180% in the same time frame. This most current retreat has erased some $3...
