    Weakness in service industry and retailers numbers

    Dollar Gaining strength from expectation of 4 rate hikes

    Asia opens down but it’s not the blood bath of last week.

    Italian bonds open in a few hours - first time since the election - I expect the globalists to punish Italian’s for their vote

    US futures only down 50 now

    US futures down -
    Dow down 74

    European markets mostly up

    No major changes in the Italian election results helped European markets. However Italian bonds yields up 3%

    Even with European markets up

    The US futures markets are still sharply down.

    Traders seem to be nervous about this morning’s non-manufacturing ISM number

    Interday trading has has a points spread of 600+ points when also counting the futures market.

    Still plenty of volatility

    Up 270 points right now

    I expect today and tomorrow to be up days. Maybe.

    Nice mid-day rally

    Down down 11 points now

    Nasdaq up 40 points

    Might be at my exit point for the day. Might cut my gains short but that's ok.

    US futures open WAY DOWN!!!

    Dow down 350

    Nasdaq down 100

    Not even sure why yet

    Haven’t seen that happen since 2008



    just confirmed by the NYT which reported that Gary Cohn, former Goldman president and COO and President Trump’s top economic adviser, is resigning, "the latest in a series of high-profile departures from the Trump administration, White House officials said on Tuesday."

    I thought tomorrow was going to a big down day but this just cemented tomorrow in for a down day.

    Down -75

    I would expect it to be a little down till the tariff is signed

    Then it’s either rally or sell off.

    Meh, I'm not sweating it.
    I understood that when Trump took office and the battle between Trump and the establishment became a constant thing, that the markets would be volatile.
    All that being said, Trump has been damn good for the economy and I can easily live with the volatility because over time it's been uphill all the way.
    I think it will continue to be good, now that people see that the tariffs will be precisely targeted and will not cause much of a problem like the MSM were carping about. Man if you listen to the MSM the world is ending every day that Trump is in office

    Hell if Trump pulls a good deal wth the NORKS out of the bag you need to standby because the markets will really take off.
    Anyway, relax, life is good, and far too short to worry about the little things.
