Conflicting Signals As We Near Year’s End

Conflicting Signals As We Near Year’s End

The big news this week boils down to much ado about nothing, because the Fed changed the wording of its forecast for keeping interest rates low  for a “considerable time“, to being “patient” when making the decision on when to start raising rates.

Russian citizens are scrambling […]

“Laughing All The Way”

We are quickly moving towards Christmas and the beginning of the new year, so I thought it would be appropriate to take a few moments to chronicle the past six years of the reign of  The Emperor, Obama.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! As everyone was resting after the big feast, oil took center stage and altered the trade shortened week. OPEC announced that they would continue to pump 30 million barrels per day of crude oil, even as the price for the product continues to decline. It has become evident […]

The FED “Twists” Reality!

The FED “Twists” Reality!

The markets have been moved of late by economic numbers and reports that come out where the analysts  have missed the mark. Today was not one of those days.
