Astrophysics Made SimpleGood morning.
The latest Bank of America Fund manager Survey has had some big shifts in recent months.  The biggest risks, according to the pros, are higher than expected inflation and a bond market tantrum much like the one seen last month.  Rapidly dropping from the list?  Covid, and in particular the vaccine rollout.
In the meantime, a record number of survey takers are bullish on the economy’s prospects this year.  The consensus is also moving to a V-shaped recovery as lower-wage workers in sectors like airlines are able to get back to full-time work.  This euphoric view, coming at a time of high market valuations, has historically pointed towards at least some kind of correction to change views.

Where do you see the biggest risks to investors today?

185 Pensions Got A $86 Billion Piece of the Stimulus Pie
Again, we’re forced to ask, just what is the latest stimulus supposed to be stimulating?  Failing pension plans – in fact, more on pension bailouts than on vaccine distribution and testing.  Who writes the check?  American taxpayers.  Here’s what you can do… [Read Here]

Morning!  “Okay, which one of you worried well is the most worried?”

Throughout the week, the Fed Fired Most of its Bullets in Attempt to Curb Market Panic.
The markets are tumbling, so the Fed has launched initiatives to spur liquidity.

Sunday mornin’ — finally the snow around our house is actually diminishing … yes melting.

We like it hot … hot … hot!

Got to go out exploring this afternoon.  Need batteries for my trackpad, keyboard & mice!  Must also take a few moments to reconnect with family… 😉

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
