Pioneering SpiritGood morning.
One touted “big trend” of the past few years has been the shift to green energy.  The idea is to “decarbonize” the market by embracing wind, solar, and other technologies that have come down in price and become much more competitive in recent years.
But when the sky is dark or the wind doesn’t blow, traditional fuels come back into focus, especially with an aversion to nuclear power.  Natural gas prices are already soaring well before winter, and oil prices jumped higher on Thursday as China moved to secure supplies.  For the time being, at least, the push for green energy seems to be losing its steam, and traditional fuel sources may remain in use for a while longer.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Time-to-OrganizeGood morning.
September is historically the weakest month for the markets, and this year was no exception.  Overall, the S&P 500 dipped 3.9 percent, far larger than average.  Somehow, that seems par for the course in 2020.
With October the second-worst month for stocks, and the month that tends to have the biggest single-day drops, there’s still a lot more volatility ahead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Good morning. Stocks have been trending up for the past few weeks.  And with earnings season going fairly well, many traders may think the worst is over.  Yet, with the Federal Reserve rapidly tightening monetary conditions, and with inflation still running rampant, we may yet see another leg down for the markets. As with 2008, when the idea made the rounds that the pain in the subprime mortgage space was “contained,” there are any number of potential shocks to the economy that could cause the recent rally to stall.  We may already see that with the number of chipmakers this

Good morning. When it comes to America’s lawmaking process, you can get a good idea of what will happen by taking a law’s title and assuming the opposite.  Many are taking that approach with the “Inflation Reduction Act,” a law just passed by the Senate and moving to the House for a vote. Rather than cut back government spending, the law looks to increase it by hundreds of billions of dollars.  With the government running a deficit, chances are this legislation will add to, not reduce, inflationary pressures. That’s especially good news for the wealthy, as high-earners will be largely

Good morning. Friday’s strong jobs report brought the unemployment rate down to 3.5 percent.  While most would see that as good news, typically, the economy is at this level of employment at an economic peak.  Similar levels in 2020, 2007, and 2000 can attest to that. This strong report also gives the Fed a reason to keep aggressively raising interest rates.  The economy won’t cool down until more people are losing jobs than gaining them.  And given how fast the Fed has been hiking rates, the more likely it is that they could fuel a “hard landing” that they’re working

Only days away now! St. John’s Quidi Vidi inlet… August 07, 2021 Cultivating A Beginner’s Mindset “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s there are few.” –Shunryu Suzuki If it’s true what they say, that no one likes a know-it-all, what happens when the know-it-all lives in your head?  Funny enough, when people think they know all there is to know on a subject, they prove to be more closed-minded.  And daresay, less enjoyable to be around. The question then becomes: how can you embrace more of a beginner’s mindset, which reflects humility with respect

  Today! August 06, 2021 Good morning. Rising Delta-variant cases, inflation fears, supply chain issues – the market is dealing with a lot right now.  That’s caused the market to feel like it’s sagging and about to drop, even when stocks are still just under all-time highs. Looking at the big tech space, which is largely rallying once again, and which makes up the biggest part of the market, it’s clear that the recent fears are just part of the “wall of worry” that the stock market sees during a bull market.  That view is also supported by Goldman Sachs

Good morning. Oil prices have continued lower, with a barrel of crude breaking under $90 in trading yesterday.  That will likely prove further good news at the gas pump.  But it will mean bad news for investors who flocked into energy plays as oil prices surged higher earlier this year. In the meantime, it’s harder to find a more beaten-down space than cryptocurrencies.  Yet the world’s largest asset manager, BlackRock (BLK), is partnering with Coinbase (COIN) to make it easier for institutional investors to trade Bitcoin. It just goes to show – assets tend to be mean-reverting over time.  A

Good morning. We’ve called it a recession since the first quarter data came out.  That was confirmed by a second quarterly drop just last week – even as the goalposts have been moved on the definition of a recession.  Ready for a third quarterly drop in a row?  The data suggests we may already be there. The data in question is the services PMI. It’s showing a large amount of declining output – in fact, the largest recorded since the global financial crisis in 2008.  That, combined with a slowdown in consumer spending and home prices, points to a third
