Good morning.
While the Federal Reserve finally skipped raising interest rates at its latest meeting, there’s a sign that the central bank will raise rates at least one more quarter-point in the coming months, and possibly twice.  Inflation is coming down, but is still higher than expected.  And financial markets are getting used to today’s rates, which historically aren’t too far from the post-World War II average.
For now, traders may be underpricing another move higher, however slight.  That could lead to some market volatility later.  But for now, traders see clear skies ahead, which may push markets slightly higher in the coming weeks.
Still, the market’s move is now getting into overbought territory, so traders should start to look for the most overbought stocks for some put option trades in the weeks ahead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Powell Caught in One Heck of a Squeeze
Debt has a nasty habit of ruling the financial world of any entity, whether it’s a household, business or nation.  My opinions may not be shared by others, but since I’ve been through four major financial crises, including the wretched stagflationary period of… [Read Here]

JuneTeenTHGood morning.
The Federal Reserve is on track to raise interest rates again today.  The central bank has generally followed a moderate approach with an announced policy of 0.5 percent rate increases. But following last week’s inflation data, some are starting to see an even higher rate hike coming into play today, with a 0.75 percent rise instead.
If the Fed stays the course, they may send the signal that they’re not too fearful about inflation.  And if the numbers show a meaningful drop next month, that could play well to soothe markets.  But at this point, not raising rates more risks adding to the market fear now, given how far behind the central bank appears to be on raising rates this cycle.  Traders should remain braced for volatility, and expect the market to continue to test lower in the weeks ahead, as the chances of breaking this bear market anytime soon remain slim.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Hopes Of Peak CPI Inflation Now Destroyed
Raging inflation.  The costs of services continued to spike in May, which has been the thing to watch for months because it’s where consumers spend most of their money, and it’s unrelated to “transitory” spikes in commodities.  This is where inflation is… [Read Here]

Bull Market Gets Promptly Ended By The Fed
For years, the adage “Don’t fight the Fed” meant only one thing: buy stocks.  Now, many new investors who never had to face inflation are learning it can mean something else.  Battered for months by hawkish statements by Jerome Powell… [Read Here]

MedicalGood morning.
Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends.
For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest moves ahead when a bull run starts.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Little Engine "that could"
Sometimes it’s difficult to believe!

Good morning.
A runaway locomotive is difficult to stop even for Superman.  A runaway market is similar in that it can seem to perpetually move higher for a long period of time.
However, as is true to form, this week saw the market finish climbing up the stairs and fell out of the window.  The window was nearly a 6% drop on Thursday, but the selling may not be over.  Like the locomotive, there is a good chance that the bullish train hasn’t stopped but just slowed.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

“I choose beliefs that can support me and the goals and dreams I have.”
(Say this 3 times today)

  • Real talk… Your results are a complete reflection of the pre-conditioned beliefs you have in your life.
  • If you change your non-supportive beliefs to supportive ones… Your results change, as well.
  • Why?  Because your beliefs create your thoughts.  Your thoughts create your feelings, and your feelings create your actions… which equals your RESULTS.
  • After years of working with students and their beliefs, I’ve identified the 3 beliefs that sabotage you… Or skyrocket your success, depending on what they are.

Powerful ‘stuff” eh!

“If you don’t take care of your body, where else are you going to live?”

We woke up nice and early this morning; as at 9:00 AM, Glenda arrives to give my wife and me a massage!

It feels so good I suggest more people take a few minutes out-of-their-day to unwind and de-stress.  I admit to being a bit sore after several days of cycling.  Glenda comes to our home, has a coffee with us, sets up her massage table, and before noon Glenda is paid, packed up, and driven by her husband to her next appointment.  While Caryl or I receive our massage, the other is free to work on ‘something else’ until it’s our turn … fabulous concept!

As the TV commercial says, “Eat your heart out Ryan!”
