                                                                          Good morning.
Better Every Day..The market finished last week on a high note as Gilead’s remdesivir trial data appeared to lift the spirits of aging bulls.  While not a vaccine, the ability to treat patients and lessen the impact helps limit the stress on hospitals and will continue to lower the fatality rate.  This is good news for the areas most greatly impacted by restrictions.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Power Surge
Perhaps more than ever, the stock market appears to be in the grips of FOMO, or “fear of missing out.”  Especially among institutional money managers, there is safety in numbers.  As long as everyone agrees to buy the same stocks, share prices can only go up.
Similar to Novavax, Tesla‘s surge in popularity is a result of the coronavirus pandemic.  Institutional investors have to put their money somewhere and COVID-19 threatens to put a lot of companies out of business.

June Spending Deficit Tops All of FY2018 (And It Gets Worse)
At nearly $1 trillion per year, the deficit in recent years was already astronomical by any measure.
But now that it’s set to surge by absurd 276% versus the previous year, it’s time to assess the ramifications that are soon to hit home for too many Americans.

Stocks Are Up, But So Is Gold — And Analysts Say the Metal’s Rally is Just Getting Started
“The Federal Reserve and central banks around the world just keep printing money… And so, gold is going to take out the old highs, $1,950 or something, and it is going to keep going.” —Jim Wyckoff

Do you know exactly what you want to do but somehow still can’t figure out the execution bit?

Are you waiting to get all your ducks in a row before you can present your idea to the world?

Do you believe that inspiration will help you create the perfect idea and land you your next big break?

Read on below for an important lesson from NIKE and Dale Carnegie.

“Start NOW: Action will create the inspiration you seek”

You know how sometimes you’re not really in the mood to do something until it starts and suddenly it’s great and you’re glad you pushed yourself?

    • the meet-up you didn’t want to attend but ended up enjoying and even offering to help organize the next one
    • the workout session that took all your willpower to begin but left you feeling more energized in the end
    • the healthy recipe you tried to humor your best friend that helped spark ideas on how you can improve your own diet

The thing is, we never really know how we will feel when we do something until we actually do it, and this gap in knowledge oftentimes gets in the way of our progress, especially if it’s something new, or something difficult.

Super Saturday!  😉

Beautiful British Columbia

Before we forget … Caryl and I had a wonderful breakfast, and … checked out our next year’s Kimberly accommodation.  Alpenglow Bed and Breakfast … tell Anja … we sent you!  (info@alpenglowbb.com)

Today though, back home!  [Calgary]

We decided to travel through the Crowsnest Pass as we haven’t gone this way for a long time!  Caryl wants to pick up a few gardening items when we get to Midnapore — and it will be Rush Hour around that time too!

Good morning. Retail sales came in with a blowout number, sending stocks to all-time highs and reversing a pre-market drop.  The reason is thanks to the last round of stimulus payments.  While earlier rounds made their way into the stock market, Bitcoin, or paying down a credit card, it’s clear from the retail numbers that many are spending. Governments and central banks are also likely noticing the impact as well.  If inflation numbers don’t materially rise and stay higher, the lesson may be learned that money can be created seemingly infinitely, as long as it’s designed to be spent.  Like

Good morning. Typically, April 15th is the day taxes from the prior year are due. 2021, like 2020, has seen a delay in payment.  Add in extensions, and you can float your payment to Uncle Sam for a year well into the autumn of the next. Tax talk hasn’t been too big in the past year.  For those on the upward part of the K-shaped recovery, it’s been withheld from their jobs as it’s been made.  For those on the lower end, there’s been less made to tax, or even the lower tax rates on unemployment benefits.  At some point,

Good morning. Coinbase is expected to make its initial public offering today.  Analysts have provided expectations for the company to trade as high as $600 per share, and potentially with a valuation of $148 billion.  That would make for one of the largest companies to go public in history. With cryptocurrency prices rushing to new all-time highs ahead of the IPO, and with estimates getting increasingly bullish for the space, this big IPO could be a sign of a top.  While the chart patterns suggest such a top is a long way off, traders should watch to see how shares

Good morning. The stock market is forward-looking.  And it’s been looking forward to this earnings season.  It’s a chance for companies to report solid numbers for the first quarter of 2021.  Earnings are expected to not only be good compared to the 4th quarter, but will also provide a strong view relative to the first quarter of 2020, when stocks had to first start pricing in the pandemic. But the real question is, what happens after earnings?  With some solid numbers likely, and with many companies still avoiding any future guidance, the next few weeks may lead to a big

Good morning. The Bureau of Labor Statistics was down early on Friday, as traders looked to see the latest inflation numbers.  With a consumer price index level up 1.0 percent month over month, or twice what was expected, inflation numbers are certainly looking up. Over time, high inflation makes it difficult for companies to provide accurate estimates of costs.  Projects are delayed, and the economy and the stock market contract.  While some of that fear has been bubbling up, for the time being, a quarter or two of extra inflation may not cause a big market selloff.  Traders can potentially

“If you want your business to thrive, you must fall in love with sales and marketing.” –Marie Forleo Here’s to a better YOU … and now … Today’s DarrenDaily Recap Sunday.  A collection of the weeks videos from Darren Hardy.  Enjoy!

How to set boundaries … and say NO You know, when we were younger, we were wisely taught by our parents, teachers, and law enforcement officials to say NO.  Somewhere along the lines, however, we lost our way.  We started feeling bad about saying no, and we began saying yes…to everything.  The result?  We stretch ourselves thin by taking on anything and everything that comes our way – often reluctantly, begrudgingly, and resentfully.  This happens in our personal and professional lives, and it not only creates overwhelming (yet unnecessary) stress, it also puts tremendous strain on our relationships. In our
