UR a cab!

Good morning.
71.  That’s the number of days this year that the S&P 500 hit an all-time high (with one partial day left).  It’s a record number of days going back to 1995, and a sign that, despite the market fears on a day-to-day basis, the market is likely in rally mode for some time to come.
While many discount the stock market’s drop in March 2020 as an aberration due to the initial Covid outbreak, stocks did enter a bear market at a record pace last year, and also had their sharpest bounce back from a bear market.  If history is any guide, given how bull markets tend to last for a number of years, 2022 should continue the trend, although perhaps at a slower rate.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Fed Insider Reveals Approaching “Doomsday”
In 2010, Thomas Hoenig was president of the Federal Reserve regional bank in Kansas City.  As part of his job, Hoenig had a seat on the Fed’s most powerful policy committee.  Now he is warning about how next year could be a complete… [Read Here]

WOWGood morning.
Over 30 percent of all money created in the United States occurred in 2020.  That massive jump in the money supply, dubbed M1, leads several to expect inflation.  It’s why assets like gold and Bitcoin performed well in 2020.  But the flip side is that economic shutdowns led to less spending, missed rent payments, and other spending.  That creates deflationary pressures.  Anyone living in New York or San Francisco can point to dropping home values as the population heads for less dense living in the suburbs — or other states.
The biggest trend of 2021 may be the push and pull between inflation and deflation.  Of course, given how long an economic recovery can take, that trend may not be fully apparent until 2022 — and 2021 may surprise investors with how boring it was after 2020’s excitement.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Here we are, the final day of 2019, the end of a decade, and a brand new 365 days.
Are you, as Darren Hardy announces, getting ready to: “Get Ready to Kick Butt”

Before my wife and I head-out-of-town to celebrate with friends, we’ve got a 2nd message from Darren that is just too important to miss.  It’s entitled: “How to Make Change Possible”

New Years Eve 2020Around the table … from left to right … Chris, myself, Bill, and my wife Caryl, would ALL like to wish you, a happy, and very successful 2020!

#1 Resource You Need in 2019

The Procrastination Cure – total life changer for me!

How you do anything is how you do every-thing.  And everything starts with you.  If you are stressed, overwhelmed, have mental clutter, and are missing structure in your days, then your business, personal life, and health are going to suffer.  I know the feeling.  Earlier this year I was so over-worked, overwhelmed and stressed that I started having anxiety attacks.  One day it got so bad I thought I was having a heart attack.  I had to do something about it…

Over the next 6 months I started creating a better structure to my days and got more disciplined in my sleep patterns, workflow, and health.  I must thank my family, my wife Caryl, and especially my good friend Bill Jones.  But, it was not until mentor and author, Jeffery Combs sent me a book entitled “The Procrastination Cure 7 Steps to Stop Putting Life Off,” that things really improved.

I highly recommend this book if you are looking to build better habits and better structure in your days so that you can get more done with-out feeling stressed and overwhelmed.

The very best to you and your family in 2019 and beyond!

P.S.: Get the book!  [I’ll leave you with a quick review of the book put together by Patrick Brigger which I found for you on YouTube!]

Good morning. In spite of 7 percent inflation rates right now, consumers are continuing to spend.  While their overall confidence has dropped, the actual spending itself shows that the economy, largely dominated by such spending, is likely to continue moving higher this year. If inflation rates start to decline in the coming months, the market could be setting up for a solid return as the current fears abate.  Given the latest data showing that consumers continue to be interested in buying homes, automobiles, and appliances this year, even a small change higher in interest rates will unlikely derail the economy’s

Good morning. On Friday, the stock market broke its 200-day moving average lower for the first time since July 2020.  Stocks are looking at oversold levels going into the weekend, with many names down much further than the overall stock market index.  But yesterday’s wild trading saw a massive drop reverse into a gain at the close. This reversal could be a sign of capitulation by sellers, and that the worst of the current decline is over.  With leveraged traders already wiped out, and plenty of cash from retail and institutional investors on the sidelines, the market could see a

Good morning. Markets had $3.3 trillion reasons to be volatile last week.  That was based on the notational value of options expiring on Friday.  That included $1.3 trillion for individual stock positions alone, the second-highest on record.  Traders repositioning those trades ahead of expiration last week may have contributed to the big selloff, which finally started reversing on Friday as Treasury yields started coming back down. Given the growth of options trading, this phenomenon of added volatility into options expiration weeks may continue for the foreseeable future.  While February’s contracts are far lower in value, the next big hump will

Today! January 23, 2021 “Creativity is an action, not a feeling.  Your work is too important to be left to how you feel today.”  –Seth Godin Power Thought That Raises Awareness Whenever we’re talking about personal transformation — whether it’s physical (lose weight), financial (get out of debt), mental (overcome anxiety), spiritual, relational (repair a broken relationship), etc. — what we’re really talking about is change.  And for most, that can be scary.  In fact, many people don’t even entertain the idea of change until the pain of not changing becomes unbearable. In other words, you have to be ready and willing

Today! January 22, 2021 Good morning. The trade war.  The pandemic.  The election.  All the big catalysts that can move markets up or down are now off the table.  So what’s next?  Until a new catalyst emerges, expect markets to drift. With markets in a long-term uptrend, the drift will likely be higher.  Individual names can still have some big news on corporate announcements and earnings reports.  And look for potential catalysts that could provide the market’s next big move, whether higher (stimulus) or lower (war, pandemic, today’s high valuations). Now here’s the rest of the news: A “Cash Panic”

01-JANUARY 21-2022

Good morning. Fears of rising inflation are likely to peak this year.  That’s good news.  And with news that major spending bills would be broken up, the likelihood of further fiscal stimulus to drive inflation higher is also likely to help there. In other areas, however, the economy is showing signs of a slowdown.  Jobless claims have risen to a three-month high.  Home sales have slowed after a massive boom in the past 18 months.  And now, expectations are that the trans-Pacific cargo trade are now rising to a three month wait time on average.  With a longer wait time

Good morning. While the stock market has largely been focused on rising interest rates in the past few weeks, the start to earnings season this week has been subdued.  Many of the big banks have started to report numbers.  And banks should be faring well even with higher rates of inflation going on right now. However, bank earnings have overall been lacklustre, as many banks have reported trading losses that have offset the gains made from a big year for mergers and IPOs. If bank earnings aren’t enough to get the markets excited and moving higher, chances are we’re in
