Your first childGood morning.
Philadelphia Federal Reserve president Patrick Harker became the first banker to suggest that the bank may slow down its bond purchases — at least, at the end of the year.  That’s the earliest that the Fed is likely to taper its bond purchases.  A few analysts don’t see that happening until as late as 2024.
If we’ve learned anything this week, it’s that money printing is far more important than anything politically.  So that’s good news for stocks, which once again hit record highs.  And it’s a sign that, even if there’s a correction in the markets, it will likely prove short-lived.  And traders can likely expect the next correction in the markets to be blamed on any “taper tantrum” should the Fed actually step off the monetary gas pedal.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Best Evidence Top Federal Reserve Officials Have No Clue –Robert Wenzel
In 2020, the Federal Reserve increased the money supply by $4 trillion (over 25%) and asset prices from housing to the stock market to Bitcoin are soaring because of the massive money pump.

Will The Fed Destroy The Dollar? –Adam Taggart
The Fed really doesn’t have a plan to get out of the mess it’s created and is pretty much just playing for time, trying to delay the inevitable repercussions of its failed policies.

Five Fed Presidents Praise Inflation –Mike Shedlock, The Street
Reserve Bank of Richmond President Thomas Barkin said, “I am encouraged to see the rise in market indicators of inflation expectations.  That is what we are trying to support.” [Read Here]

Day 2 of my 14 Day Challenge!  Flyin’ High with Other People’s Money.

Last summer I showed a cattle rancher, north of Cochrane, how to fly his drone.  When he nailed aerial pictures of suspicious trespassers on fence-posts around property, the number of cattle that went missing during the night from ‘his ranch’ dropped considerably.  For a couple of hours ‘instruction’ he paid me $75.  Whether it is training, consulting, or just plain know-how, people will pay you for shortening their learning-curve … for your time.  When you find something you love to do — assisting others by making their lives better, OPM keeps you smiling.  Here’s a great quote by Nick Offerman along those lines:

Figure out what you love to do, then figure out how to get paid to do it.”

Early to work this morn’.  I’ve got-to-love these six-hour-shifts.

Home to pick up Caryl for more shopping at Staples and Mark’s … Caryl also wanted to check out new glassware at BOWRING.  Twenty-four water & wine glasses AND a dozen dessert dishes later; the big find was found.

We located not one, but two Brennan Benches on sale; to round off-the-day!

Now we can finally get rid of four white chairs we’ve been hanging onto.

Bryan, I hope you’re listening.  Come and get them!

Good morning. Yesterday saw the latest Fed meeting.  As expected, the Fed had some nice things to say about how the economy was doing, and why all those rising prices and shrinking portion sizes at the grocery store were temporary.  But when it came to, say, pulling back on the billions of dollars per day of bond buying, the central bank once again punted on the issue, saying they were looking into it. This is a replay of its model from the last crisis.  Yes, the Fed will eventually scale back its bond buying, possibly even to zero.  And it

Good morning. Last week saw the stock market dive on rising Delta variants to Covid 19.  Yesterday saw a big drop, particularly for tech.  The reason?  A crackdown by China over a number of companies there. These drops are usually healthy, as they help curb speculation and keep traders on their toes, either by quickly turning profits into losses, or by creating new trading opportunities at a better value.  This summer’s market is starting to look like the summers in the mid-1990s when tech stocks would correct going into the autumn, only to end the year higher.  In the meantime,

Good morning. Trading is fun and exciting, and being able to leverage small short-term moves into big profits makes for a fun and profitable hobby, even with the occasional big loss to talk about.  But some of the best returns can come from taking a long-term position in a multi-year trend. In a special edition of Trading Tips today, we’ll be looking more in-depth at what’s set to be the biggest trend of the decade.  It’s potentially a $30 trillion market, far bigger than 5G, the Internet of Things, all the meme stocks combined, and even cryptocurrencies.  It’s changing the

Good morning. As much as Wall Street loves rumors, Washington DC is the major league.  The latest rumors are that Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell might not be nominated for a second term to lead the Fed.  While his tenure has been little different than his prior two predecessors given the crises he’s had to deal with, some progressives don’t think the Fed chair has done enough on income inequality and other matters. That could lead the White House to find a more radical leader for the central bank, potentially even one willing to embrace the latest economic theories such

Letting Go Of Guilt “Guilt can stop us from taking healthy care of ourselves.” –Melody Beattie Guilt is like a rock.  It sits in the pit of our stomachs and can weigh down our every thought, behavior, and action.  It can distract us all throughout the day and keep us awake at night.  Our muscles work overtime just to carry it around, and yet we still hold onto it. It’s imperative that we stop feeling so guilty. That’s not to say that you shouldn’t feel guilt.  True guilt is a loving instrument from Spiritual Guidance used to convict, correct, and confirm your

Good morning. Technology companies need to constantly innovate.  That results in a high amount of money being spent on research and development, which in turn helps keep a company’s taxes lower than a company that makes the same product year-in, year-out. So it’s no surprise that regulators are always on the lookout for ways to try and get more taxes out of these massive firms that often have little to no earnings.  One proposal is being floated for a new generation of technology: a space tax.  Or, more specifically, a per-passenger tax on space flights like the ones just completed
