Good Evening, It’s been a wild week. The market was rebounding from the latest tech selloff until it came time for President Biden to appoint a Fed Chairman for the next term. I promise you when I say this I am trying not to let politics get involved but due to the nature of the subject it is impossible to talk about it and not seem like I am. So I’m just going to say that I love you all ...

Good Evening, In recent weeks we’ve discussed that fact that earnings move the market. We also talked about the the current market being shaped by the battle between earnings and inflation. We theorized that good earnings moving into the New Year would continue to propel the market to new highs. So far we have been correct as was the case again today more good earnings being reported by retail giants Walmart and Home Depot both exceeding guidance and analysts estimates. ...

Interfund Transfer

Good Evening, It’s time to adjust our allocation. The new allocation is 100/S. 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 accumulate in the G Fund are always picked up ...

Good Evening, The market decided to take a rest today. I’m not too concerned as a little profit taking after the nice run in October is healthy. We will see how things go from here but my guess is that the market is consolidating before the next move up. All the boxes are being checked one by one for a rally into the new year and the infrastructure package that was passed by congress this past weekend was another step ...

Good Evening, Well they updated the word processing program for this website. It is an updated version of something called WordPress. Do you all know what this is?? Ok, that’s what I know about it. The Name. That’s it. When I worked for the government I was first trained to utilize Corel WordPerfect and then trained (with much stress) to use Microsoft Word. I have not been trained in…what do they call this again? Ahh yes WordPress. Where’s the number ...

Good Evening, I’m absolutely sure this week finds you all in much better spirits than last week. Five straight days of gains will tend to do that for you….. Many times in the past we’ve talked about the number one thing that makes the market move. It’s what it’s all about. It’s why the market exists. It is earnings. In a way earnings kind of reminds me of the scripture on love in the Bible. It says that if you ...

Good Evening, I’ll keep it short and sweet tonight as I’m on the road again. Mrs. Grimes insisted that I take her to the Shilo Battlefield. You see she actually did retire and would like to do such things every now and then. She’s the genealogist in our family so I have to take her to study history, visit cemeteries and things like that! So on to the market. As we anticipated the choppiness continues. There are currently three things ...

Good Evening, In the past few weeks we have talked about six separate issues that have been influencing the market. I won’t rehash all six right now but if you want to review then you can just pull up the last two blogs and that should get you up to date. As for today there are two of those issues that are shaping the market. Those are the rise in government bond yields and the failure of congress to agree ...

Good Evening, Last week we talked about 5 issues that were effecting the market. Well welcome to number six! This is an issue that occurred earlier this year and has now reared it’s ugly head yet again. It is rising treasury yields. God’s word says there is nothing new under the sun and that definitely applies here. If you remember when it occurred last time we said that it was only an amount of time before it occurred again. Why? ...

Good Evening, There is so much going on that I could write a book tonight, but I don’t have time to write a book and you sure don’t have time to read one. So a blog will have to do! It’s just that sometimes it is really hard to condense all the stuff that is going on into one short blog and this is one of those times. All most of you see is a  market that seems to be ...
