Cashless society soonGood morning.
With election uncertainty over — at least on the voting side — the stock market is looking at the next big potential event that can impact stock prices.  Traders seem to think it’s one of two things.  The first is more lockdowns.  A number of states have started to tighten up ahead of winter weather.
The other?  It’s somewhat tied to the first.  Another round of stimulus.  The odds are likely to increase now that the election is over.  It’s likely to have a more immediate impact than future changes in legislation, regulation, or tax rates.  So for now, watch the stimulus headlines to drive the market’s daily swings.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

America’s Reset Begins Now:  If you haven’t noticed – signs like these are popping up at grocery stores, restaurants,and retailers…
Most folks think these “no cash” policies are only temporary.  But American billionaire Ray Dalio says the world is going to change “in shocking ways” in the next five years.
This all in the midst of a tight Joe Biden “possible” Presidential Win dampening consumer spending during a fraught holiday session.  A new president in the White House cannot solve ALL the problems that plague US…

I wanted my personal blog to be more than a regurgitation of someone-else’s thoughts — i.e.: Darren Hardy.

However, I find myself immersed into his daily message each morning and feel my purpose is best served by capturing his messages in time!  Darren’s message therefore becomes mine!  I know Darren believes — people will not see the urgency of watching each fresh message each day — and removes each daily message after 48 hours … not so here.  I treasure Darren’s message and therefore maintain it in time!  Yet again is Darren’s — DarrenDaily!

Powerful Stuff, Ah?

Heartbeat no moreAnd in the Financial NEWS:  Mario Draghi, head of the European Central Bank, warned that there were “mild signs of over-stretched valuations” in the markets.  As head of the ECB, Draghi has been a supporter of assets purchases and has been favorable to actions such as the rise of negative interest rates.  Naturally, the central banker had no comment as to the cause of what may have possibly pushed valuations to above-average levels.  The great political game of taking credit and shifting blame is truly timeless.

To tomorrow…  😉

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

Good morning. The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well. One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets. Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have

Good morning. Investors sometime take a very binary approach to stocks.  They’re either all-in on a position, or they’re in cash or a different trade.  Rather than buy all at once, however, astute traders know when to average in.  As long as a company’s prospects don’t fundamentally change, this move allows investors to still have the option of cash, with the ability to buy more shares of a company when the market declines. So while Goldman Sachs (GS) recently warned clients not to buy Monday’s drop, retail investors saw a dip to buy instead.  With stocks hitting resistance at their

Good morning. The stock market was in freefall Monday, much like a mini-version of its March 2020 decline.  Is this the next big sell-off?  Probably not.  Monday’s fears, based on rising mask mandate re-impositions and a few select lockdown threats around the world, are likely being overblown. In the meantime, the bigger market concern is whether or not the current economic growth is sustainable.  The facts are that it will likely slow.  Not the best news, but not the worst news either.  And inflation expectations continue to rise.  But with a lumber market shouting “timber” as it comes back down
