Down Again Next Week?

We have been holding to the idea lately that the market would be at one of those “turn either way” points when the election gets here. Over the last day, or two, one of our trading indicators (which our Peoplenomics.com subscribers will know as “the...

Mexico’s Slow Motion War with the US

Once again this morning, we are beset by three things in America that no one wants to deal with. Our first one is Mexico’s slow-motion war with America. For those incapable of clear-thinking on the matter, Nations have borders.  That’s what the dopes in...

Smarmy Markets & Dirty Politics

Our work has been indicating for some time (at least if you subscribe to our Peoplenomics.com site) that the markets are likely to place themselves in a “break-either-way” position by the time we get out to the congressional mid-term circus three weeks...

Idiolutionaries and Retail Sails

We begin the week with a short lecture to antifa.  Hopelessly misguided as events in the socialist city-state of Portland this weekend revealed (again).  Please take the time to read how “Bear spray, bloody brawls at Patriot Prayer ‘law and order’...

Coping: Consumer Rips, A Case of Woo-Woo

According to plan, the visit of my nearly life-long buddy – the major –  the fellow who’s my “brother of a different mother” will wrap up today. When you’ve been friends with someone for 66-years (admittedly longer than most readers...

Depression Warning: Is it a “1-Down” or a “4?”

These are interesting (trips-to-the-bathroom-inducing) times to be trading the markets.  Another 500-odd Dow points to the downside Thursday reminds us of several points average people will miss.  If I may? We are reminded that the fiercest forces of all are Mother...

Market Fails: Trump to Reprise Hoover? CPI Holds

Sure, Florida is an awful mess this morning in the wake of the hurricane hit Wednesday.  The storm is moving off to the northeast, vastly diminished. But we may have a bigger problem:  The Market.  Which blew through 800+ points yesterday for reasons that aren’t...

PC Stupidity, Stock Price Channels Matter

Welcome to National Political Correctness is Rotting America Day around here.  Because this is a holiday (no bills in the mail, though) to honor Christopher Columbus and the claiming of the continent by Europeans. At issue in the demonstrations to come today will be...

Idiots to Riot – Useless Protesters, Jobs

There is a “clear and present danger” to America coming this weekend to a country near you.  It’s idiotic leftist protesters who will be out – funded by left-wing benefactors who suck  money out from the gullible – on the notion that...

Looking Past Jobs

As we continue to careen toward the financial abyss  we are faced with the morning ponder about jobs. In case you missed in, the ADP report out Wednesday looked pretty good: Unfortunately, that’s being tempered today with the job cuts announcement from...

ACNWTP – An Income Tax Solution?

Philosophy of Finance today:  Want an alternative to the Federal Income Tax system that’s in place now? You have come to the right place because we’re rolling one out. Why, coupled with our plans to tax human replacing robots  (defining everything with...

The Coming DATA-WAR With Europe

The phone rang.  Six-minutes after 7 AM.  Prime writing time.  Who would call while I’m  in crank-it-out mode??? Why, my consigliere, of course! “Did you see what Europe did?” “Er….looked at the DAX a minute ago…down a...

Expectation-Setting Monday

As usual around here, the first order of business any day is making the weekly list of things to do, what to watch-for in the markets, and figuring where the next “out of left field” events will be coming from. Since I make no apologies for capitalism, we...
