Good Evening, The major indices all finished down. The S&P 500 and C Fund were down. Bad day for the market right?? Wait just a minute. Not everything is what it seems. Healthcare and Technology stocks that have been leading the recent rally where down today, but the other sectors where up. I call that a redistribution day. Investors where buying value and the money had to come from somewhere. Stocks like banks, energy, and industrial stocks were up. So ...

Good Evening, I’ve received more than a few E-Mails asking if anything has changed in the charts. It seems that I always get them when the market has a few bad days and the last two sessions definitely qualify! The market sold off hard today after oil contract futures dropped to zero. That’s right you didn’t read it wrong. I wrote Zero!!! Why??? Because we are nearly out of storage. Those that buy oil bought as much cheap oil as ...

Good Evening, First and foremost I want to give praise to our God that never lets us down. Even in a pandemic! My prayers continue to go out to each and everyone of you that God will protect your health just as He has protected your accounts from Corona Virus also known as COVID 19. The market rose again today on positive sentiment that cases of corona virus in epicenters in the US may be starting to peek. It was ...

Good Evening, Wouldn’t it be nice if a market that sold off just found the bottom one day and starting moving straight back up? That would be nice for sure, but that’s not the way that it usually works. I understand that we’ve experienced many V Shaped recoveries over the past ten years and that’s exactly what I just described. Straight back up. However, those recoveries occurred during small dips or corrections, not during a bear market. This is the ...

Good Evening, It’s time to adjust our allocation. The new allocation is 100/C. Please remember that this is the percentage of money that we have invested in each fund, not the money that is taken from your check and deposited into thrift. That deposit should always be 100% G Fund. That automatically protects your deposit in the event that it is made on a bad day for the market. The funds that ...

Good Evening, I bet you all have been wondering why we didn’t reenter the market early last week. After all, a lot of the paid services did! Well today’s action was a good example of why. There is still some rough water ahead. Fundamentally speaking cases of corona virus and unemployment must first peek before volatility decreases. That may be the case in a few weeks but it’s certainly not now. The economy is going to have to reopen for ...

Good Evening, This market is exactly like a roller coaster. It twists and turns and goes upside down at a high rate of speed! All the stimulus and high speed computer trading are giving the word volatility a new meaning. Today the market had it’s best day since 1933. Wow, that’s 87 years! That’s some kind of bounce. It traded higher on sentiment that a massive stimulus bill will soon clear congress. It actually got started when President Trump talked ...

Good Evening, First of all let me say that I am praying that you all are well. I know these are unprecedented times. Well another day… some more stimulus. Today the White House proposed sending every American tax payer a $1000.00 check to help them get through the corona virus shutdown. They also proposed delaying taxes for 90 days. All that amounts to about three trillion with a T in stimulus. Also, the Federal Reserve said it would create a  special ...

Good Evening, Folks if you ever want to gain anything in this business you must understand one principle and that is that it’s not what you make that’s important it’s what you keep! Corrections and bear markets are normal and in most cases are healthy occurrences. You plan for them and you mange them. Current investors much like investors during the dot com bubble in the 90’s have been spoiled by a market that pretty well has moved straight up for ...

Good Evening, Wow, just like old times. We get a presidential tweet and the market moves. This morning President Trump tweeted that his administration would recommend a fiscal stimulation plan to counteract the effect of the corona virus. Specifically, he mentioned two things. He said they would propose a payroll tax cut to help working class Americans and further tax help for those in the hardest hit industries such as travel. Of course, any stimulus plan must be approved by ...
