PRE MARKET

Greetings from out west where one falls asleep late and wakes up at 4 am. Yippee! Futures are up as the bounce off of Wednesday’s nausea continues. Brazil bounces back a bit off of yesterday’s drubbing. We almost was thinking about probing the drop but no thanks. NASDAQ/NDX/SOX remain the strongest but leave no doubt […]

Support looks like it is going to be tested again soon. Needless […]

Political risk is important…especially now. We are of the belief the market has made a big bet on: Tax reform…which included lower marginal rates, lower corporate […]
