Only TwiceGood morning.
The official jobless claims provided markets with a dour open on Thursday.  The economy remains disconnected from the stock market near all-time highs.  But, remember, bad news can mean good news.  That’s because the worse things look, the better the chances the Federal Reserve will keep monetary stimulus measures in place.  And if things get worse, a final fiscal stimulus deal may end up larger than expected.
Amidst this economic theater, expect the stock market not to drift too far from its highs, but beware for potential drops.  That’s especially true with so many companies looking high-flying after the November rally.  In any event, knowing how the game is played makes it easier to find profitable trades, both long and short.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Revenue is vanity, profit is sanity, but cash is king.  I don’t know if this is someone quote, but it has now become my Ownership Creed.

Ownership is the state or fact of exclusive rights and control over property, which may be an object, land or real estate, or intellectual property.  Ownership involves multiple rights, collectively referred to as title, which may be separated and held by different parties.
The process and mechanics of ownership are fairly complex: one can gain, transfer, and lose ownership of property in a number of ways.  To acquire property one can purchase it with money, trade it for other property, win it in a bet, receive it as a giftinherit it, find it, receive it as damages, earn it by doing work or performing services, make it, or homestead it.  One can transfer or lose ownership of property by selling it for moneyexchanging it for other property, giving it as a gift, misplacing it, or having it stripped from one’s ownership through legal means such as evictionforeclosureseizure, or taking.  Ownership is self-propagating in that the owner of any property will also own the economic benefits of that property.

As it should be, Darren Hardy has a few words, “Creating An Ownership Mindset”

“Until you take ownership for your life, you will always be chasing happiness.” —Sean Stephenson

What I find astonishing is that just about every message written in this blog really boils down to a single message.  The message is that YOU control your own life, your destiny, and your power.  That cannot be taken away from you, as it is YOUR ownership of your life!  😉

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
