  • Back To Work In September

    As the Summer winds down to a close,the month of September signals the start of a regular work schedule once again.Kids are starting school and the shrieks of August finally die down.Getting back to full-time trading is the order of the day after meeting the new teacher and everyone has a daily purpose.The chaos in the Markets at the end of August probably cut short some trader's vacations but it was going to end anyway.This is one of my favorite times of the year with Pennant races ( Go Mets ) Football and the air turning crisper by the day.I vow to write more now that my time is my own and everyone is busy with their homework.September will be an interesting one for the Stock Market if the August Swoon is any indication.The off time will recharge the batteries for the trading possibilities that abound.I am ready for whatever comes my way,A Fed Hike,China Troubles,or a Black Swan event not yet on the radar.So let the games begin and good luck to all the traders out there.The last one off the Beach,please close the gate.

  • Watch Out For Potholes This Summer

    After a long harsh winter is over numerous potholes appear on the roadway.Eventually most get repaired while a few go unnoticed close to Memorial Day weekend.One hole where I live seems to have jurisdictional issues with no one willing to take ownership of it.Hopefully it will be filled soon so our thoughts can return to wonderful Summer days.The Market is slated to begin it's slow period where top trading honchos head to their beach houses to prepare for the summer season.They will make sure everyone has done their jobs painting,cleaning,and sprucing up the fruits of their labor.This summer has a strange feel as if a distant storm may well be approaching.You might have sensed this in 2008 as the dark clouds of the housing bubble were first seen in the distant.I for one will keep an eye for any problems that may crop up in the dog days of summer.I learned that lesson in 2008-2009 and lived to see the future as a trader/investor.Remember to watch out for the pothole that was not filled as that will be the one to jar you on a hot summer day.Oh,there goes another boat heading to the Ocean. Have a great Holiday weekend,everybody.

  • Gas Savings Devoured By Car Insurance Hike

    On a cold winter's morning,a quick stop to the local Exxon station filled up the tank with 15.72.For the last two months the declining prices at the pumps has given everyone an extra bounce in their step.Unfortunately every company that consumers deal with have seen this as a green light to raise prices on their services.Recently the cable bill went up a few bucks and now just today the car insurance premium was raised 54 dollars.So when television pundits wonder where the extra money has gone to,a monthly scan of the household bills should provide the answer.Let's hope gas prices do not rise into the summer or the fun will fade very quickly on the consumer spending rebound.Then a new theme must be found for early morning business news stations to run with.Maybe higher profits at cable and Insurance outfits.
