The EssayGood morning.
The tech stock selloff saw a major reversal yesterday.  While it’s too soon to tell if this is a push higher, a pause before another drop, or a sideways trend, one fact matters.  The Nasdaq took a 10 percent dive before this big push higher.
That’s similar to how markets reacted in 2009-2015, the last time interest rates were at zero percent.  A 10 percent correction, or close to it, was enough to shake off any short-term fear in the markets during those years.  That was a reliable buy indicator, even a better and more reliable one than looking at technical indicators like moving averages.

Do you see Tuesday’s rally as a sign the selling in tech is over?  What strategies are you employing here?

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Congratulations Workers! You Make 13 Cents More Per Hour Than You Did in 1973 –Mike Shedlock, TheStreet
Average hourly earnings rose from $28.51 to $30.01, up $1.50 an hour.  You only saw $0.38 of that because inflation-adjusted wages only rose from $11.02 to $11.40… [Read Here]

We SucceededGood … morning!!!
It really escalated quickly over the weekend and that escalation poured into the open on Monday as trading was halted.  Yes, the curbs came in as the S&P dropped more than 7% during the cash open.
These are the types of trading days you remember for a long time, and some investors probably didn’t make it through today.  As Billy Joel sang, “these are the times to remember, cause they will not last forever.”  At least we hope these types of days don’t last forever.

Tom Paredes told me…

Stop trying to fix all of the problems your distributors face.  You can’t fix all of problems.  Even the government with an unlimited budget can’t fix all of the problems.

Instead, give your distributors vision.

“When a distributor has a vision, nothing gets in his way.  When a distributor doesn ’t have vision, everything gets in his way. ”

This advice has saved me hours of grief.  😉

Shine Your Light on Others Real leadership, the kind of leadership that not only works but also has a lasting impact, is about building other people and shining your light on them, not on yourself.  Real leaders understand they are here to work for the team, and not the other way around. A mediocre leader tries to impress people with how important he or she is.  A great leader impresses upon people how important they are. People will be willing to do more and accomplish more when they feel recognized.  A little recognition goes a long way, but you have to

Good morning. Earnings season offers a big opportunity for markets to move in either direction.  With the market currently contending with the issues that come from rising interest rates, and the latest Covid variant (which Bill Gates say may be the last before Covid becomes more seasonal like the flu), this quarterly earnings report could be a make-or-break. While the data from the last quarter of 2021 are already in the rear-view mirror, early indications are that overall earnings for the S&P 500 are up 49 percent.  That’s hugely bullish, and some industries are likely to move higher no matter

Good morning. Wednesday’s inflation reading of a 7 percent annual increase is the biggest move higher for inflation since 1982.  However, behind all headlines are some good and bad news.  Good news?  The rate of inflation growth is slowing, and that may be confirmed over the next few months. And, within the data that goes into inflation, some components are still continuing to rise, such as energy and gasoline prices.  But other factors, like meat prices, are starting to decline. This more nuanced picture shows that many inflation components are also tied in with shortages, and that the rate of

Good morning. The stock market continues to struggle to find its footing this year, as attempts to move higher seem to be thwarted by a number of news items such as rising Covid cases.  However, combined with a low death rate (something the news rarely talks about anymore), the latest variant may allow the pandemic to become endemic to those who haven’t yet moved on. In the meantime, a number of investors are getting bullish following the latest selloff.  Of particular note is the renewed interest in Bitcoin, where billionaire Bill Miller states that half his personal portfolio is now

Good morning. At its lows yesterday, the Nasdaq hit correction territory, down 10 percent from its most recent high.  That comes as interest rates continue to creep higher.  With a week loaded with economic data, that’s no surprise. By the end of the week we should see the latest inflation data with a CPI release on Wednesday, as well as the PPI for producer data.  Retail sales will give a hint as to how the holidays performed compared to prior years, and a number of Federal Reserve members have speaking engagements which can move the markets this week. With the

Good morning. Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent. While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the

More Newfoundland wonder! January 09, 2021 Getting A Job Is a Job A recruiter asked a job candidate, “Why did you leave your last job?” The job applicant replied, “It was something my boss said.” “What did he say?” “You’re fired.” This person definitely needs a copy of my new book – “Getting a Job is a Job” – which comes out Jan. 5.  In it, I focus on bouncing back after being fired, dealing with rejection and the emotions people feel.  And I explain why you can’t take it personally. The book is chock full of helpful hints on
