6:17:36 PM EDT |
Slow Start To A Big Week
There's so much going on this week I don't know where to start; the FOMC tops the list but is by no means the only thing moving the markets.

Government Shuts Down, Market Rallies
The Senate was unable to pass a budget over the weekend, which has resulted in a government shutdown.

We've all become accustomed to a stock market that only knows how to rally and therefore it was unusual to see the indexes gap down this morning.

Dow 30K On The Horizon
Trump said it first, now that the Dow has crossed 25,000 our new number is 30K.
8:49:11 PM EDT |
He might have been late, due to fighting off the bears attacking his reindeer, but Santa arrived for the final two days of the period when we typically get the Santa Claus rally. January has started off on a bullish hoof and that bodes well for the rest of the month and year (maybe).
