Pet CartoonGood morning.
The Nasdaq and S&P 500 have hit new record highs this week.  But it doesn’t feel like a bull market.  Why?  That’s because the market is undergoing a rotation.  Tech stocks started underperforming at the start of the year, as other sectors took the lead.  Some tech names are heading higher now, but there’s no clear sign that tech is taking the lead.
This rotation is a healthy sign that when the feeling of a sideways market is over, the market will trend higher.  That’s the good news.  The bad news?  Periodic sell-offs might be just enough to scare out investors of stocks that have the potential to move a lot higher.  Traders may not want to get overly leveraged here, if stocks are only going to move gradually higher, and some trades on the short side can do well here.  But when markets are in a sideways pattern, the key trap to avoid is boredom.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

ActuallyGood morning.
The market sees volatility come back with a 2.5% drop in the S&P 500.  While that’s not exactly a world-beater, it is an indication that the accumulation of negative data may be starting to weigh on the Bulls.  While bulls can be strong, there’s only so much weight they can carry before the bears can take them down.

Is Work-Life Balance a Myth?

…Disorganized?  Burnt out?  Behind?  Rushed?

Lookin’ for work life balance tips¹ … It’s safe to say that you love your BUSINESS and your FAMILY.

If you often wrestle with the concept of “work-life balance,” then allow us the opportunity to burst the bubble: It’s a cultural myth.  It’s overrated.  It’s a fundamentally flawed, unachievable concept.  The notion of work-life balance suggests that we should have this perfect balance between our personal and professional responsibilities at any given time.

This couldn’t be further from the truth for the over-whelming majority of folks, and here’s the even more critical part: Life is seasonal.  In other words, there may be seasons when the scales tip in favor of our professional responsibilities and aspirations, and there may be seasons when our personal lives take priority.

It’s not all or nothing; it’s just not necessarily 50-50.  And what works for one person, may not work for you.  And what works for you today, may not work for you down the road.  And the seasons of life can also extend to your spirituality, relationships, health, fitness and other aspects of life.

Now, that’s not to say that you should ever neglect these key areas.  After all, it’s not about how much time.  It’s about being intentional with your time.  As Hillary DePiano said, “We all get the same 365 days.  The only difference is what we do with them.”

And we all get the same 24 hours.  Are you living intentionally with yours?  Are you present when you’re with your family?  Are you zeroed in on the opportunity at hand?  Or, are you distracted by everything else you could be doing?

As Paul wrote in the book of Colossians, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart.”  Said differently, wherever you are, be there.  Or, as Mark Batterson put it in his book Play the Man, “Do it like your life depends on it.”  Whether it’s physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or relationally, leave it all on the court.

Intentional living, according to John Maxwell, is key to “choosing a life that matters,” and like many of you have experienced, fatherhood refines, humbles, and promotes growth — for everyone.  Quit aiming for someone else’s idea of balance, and focus your target on living intentionally.

“Be present in all things and thankful for all things.” – Maya Angelou

To your balance,

Secrets Of Inner Power

Before you close this post and go on with your day or night… there’s something I’d like you to take a moment to think about.

Success is like an iceberg.

Most of us only see the 10% that’s visible above the surface: the nice house, the expensive clothes, the fancy car.

But most of us never see the 90% that’s under the surface.  All the hard work, good fortune, and mindset that go into keeping that success afloat.

So we focus on trying to achieve the part we can see.  And we wonder why we never quite manage to create the life that we want.

Can you relate?

This training is designed to help you understand what’s going on under the surface.

It’s going to help you discover the root cause that determines whether you struggle in life… or you succeed. 

If you’ve ever found yourself wondering why you haven’t got the results you have always hoped for… then T. Harv Eker International has the home-study course for you… entitled, Secrets Of Inner Power.

This is my P.S. reminder to review Harv’s previous material before committing to anything further!

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
