Just pets!Good morning.
First-time unemployment filings are ticking up.  While they’re not huge yet, they may be a sign of more trouble to come in the months ahead.  Most aren’t too worried about the numbers.  After all, the number of total job listings still far exceeds the number of unemployed.
However, that trend is shifting as well.  47 out of 50 states reported a decline in help wanted ads in the past month.  For June, job listings slid by 2.8 percent.  Again, that’s not huge.  But combined with rising unemployment claims, it’s clear that it may the end of the great resignation trend where workers were able to jump over to new jobs at higher pay.
This slowdown in the labor market may also cause the recent market rally to stall out, and potentially resume a downslide in the coming months.  Traders shouldn’t expect this bullish week to continue indefinitely.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Experts Predict Incoming Housing Crash Worse Than 2008
You may not want to buy a house right now.  What goes up must eventually come down, and we have just entered the “down” side of that equation.  Over the past two years, home prices in the United States have gone up nearly 40 percent.  Now mortgage… [Read Here]

PsychologyGood morning.
The rise of retail traders over the past year has likely saved a number of companies from bankruptcy, or helped bankrupt companies bounce back and exit bankruptcy faster.  That’s created a lot of interest in finding short squeeze stocks for big, fast profits.  It’s also driven traders into options to play the trend as well.
One area can also be at play for big bucks: Corporate bond markets.
Case in point, 2026 bonds for AMC Entertainment (AMC) traded as low as 5 cents on the dollar last year, but have no rallied back to par.  Buyers would have seen a massive return, and would have locked in a high income as well.  The rise of retail trading is impacting far more than the stock market, and professional investors are taking note.  While not as exciting as the stock market, under the right circumstances, the returns can be better than the stock, safer than options, and throw off income as well.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

I'm BrokeGood morning.
There is a strong desire to create a “wealth effect” of higher asset prices.  In a recession, the most direct method to higher stock prices is stimulative actions provided by Federal Gov’t deficits and Federal Reserve quantitative easing.
The tally thus far dwarfs the measures taken in 2008 and the results for the market has been startling for experienced investors.  However, how much potential stimuli is already priced into equities and how far can the big tech companies be pushed?  Nobody knows the answer, but the past week of trading appears to be indicating we’ll find out sooner rather than later.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

“The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist, the opportunity in every difficulty.”

Our lives are far more enjoyable – certainly more instructional – if we view each thing that happens to us as just that – a happening.

Remember, it’s not what happens to us, but our response to what happens to us that makes the difference in the quality of our lives.  I believe, as do many, that everything that happens can be a lesson; every adversity can be a blessing.  The following story illustrates this well.

Anthony Burgess discovered he had a brain tumor and only six months to live when he was 40 years old.  He was distressed that he had nothing to leave his wife who was soon to become a widow.  He decided to write — something he’d always wanted to do.  The potential royalty from a book was the only thing he could think of doing to leave any kind of financial security for his family.

By the end of the first year and with no certainty that he would ever be published, he finished five novels.  But he did not die.  His cancer went into remission and then disappeared altogether.

In his long and full life, Anthony Burgess went on to write more than 70 books.  Without the death sentence from cancer, he might not have written anything.

“There is no education like adversity.” – Benjamin Disraeli

Next time things don’t seem to be going the way you want, ask yourself what the positive aspect is.  What’s the benefit in the adversity?

You’ll have greater enjoyment and learn more in the process.  🙂
