Good morning. The Federal Reserve continues to sound optimistic, at lest according to its headline meeting minutes. But a number of officials are worried about stability risks. That’s certainly an issue. With the money supply up at a record rate in the past year, it’s easy to see why some fear an unusual amount of inflation, for instance. All in all, financial markets repeatedly offer the illusion of stability. From rapid crashes and rallies to the seeming collapse of the entire economy once every 10 years or so, investors should be wary when things seem like they’ll continue indefinitely in the direction they’ve been heading. Taking this approach led to buying last year’s pandemic bear market. Today, it may mean taking some aggressive and leveraged trades off the table, just in case the economy doesn’t perform as strongly as expected. Now here's the rest of the news:Good morning.

Good morning.  When Bulls Are Over-Anxious to Catch the Rocketship Higher, This Isn’t the Bottom.

DECLARATION FOR THE DAY:
(Say This 3x Times Today)

“Over, Under, Around, or Through, Whatever it Takes, I’ll Do.”

Note:  The 3_things that are going to keep our businesses afloat, our heads above water, and in-looking-in anticipation of better times ahead, are the same three thing a successful business does.

  1.  Share frequent updates.  Posting is a great way to keep your customers informed when you’re experiencing changes.
  2. Keep up customer relationships.  Customers can contact you directly, ask you questions, and save time; when the communication lines are open.
  3. Take your events online.  See which parts of your business you can shift online — especially as people are spending more time on their devices.

Who Called This Meeting AgainAfter a major sell-off like we’ve seen, it stands to reason that some stocks will be trading at levels that will make them attractive for investors and will have better prospect than others.  When evaluating companies right now, you must consider how opaque the earnings picture looks.
The more opaque, the more likely they are to test new lows.  Those stocks that are more oversold and have a clearer path forward may have a chance to retest lows or form higher lows and highs.  This is that proverbial fork in the road for the market.  In this case, we’re trying to identify the one that will likely be most traveled.

“With the pandemic raging through the country, forcing the shutdown of much of …
the American economy, the unemployment rate — a measly 3.5% in February — is no more!”

—John Steele Gordon

Opposites indeed!IT’S BAD SCIENCE!
Investigate your thoughts and refute them.  If you catch your-self having self doubt in any area, be sure to examine why and look for the positives.  The more we focus on this, the more we hardwire the pathways to positive thinking and make it part of our natural thinking process.  That’s the cool thing about our brains, the more we focus on something the more hardwired it becomes.
So if we think positive, we’re going to be positive, and the same vice versa.  Be a mad scientist — destroy the fake news in your brain!  Don’t be afraid to question your own thinking.  After all — we know ourselves best, and if we don’t call ourselves on our own Bull Shit, who will?
To the BEST YOU!!!

When pursuing a goal and failing to see success, asks yourself a simple question:

“Is this a skill issue, or a commitment issue?”

Barriers-to-successWith people like you and me, it’s rarely a commitment issue.  Sure, sometimes we realize that the goal we picked is no longer aligned with our life.  But that’s rare.  When we get stuck, it’s normally a skill issue.
Recognizing the correct answer to this question is half the battle in becoming the most successful version of yourself.  You know that you deserve to have success – now you just need to figure out what skills you need to solve the problem.

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
