Hey Folks, looking at the markets I am reminded of the classic show, “The Wizard of OZ”. In this case, Oz is our very own Janet Yellen, A.K.A. “Aunt Bee”. This past week the FEDS essentially offered no surprises regarding either our “go forward” interest rate policy ()one more this year and 3 next year), or the BS Reduction (Yellen’s US Balance Sheet Reduction plans which will start relatively soon). But, like the movie, when you take a peak behind the curtain OZ was a short man who had no power in the long run and I believe we will see the same will play out for Yellen.

Hey everyone, this will be more many a long holiday weekend with Independence Day coming up in the US on July 4th. And even though that is a Tuesday and markets will be open on Monday, most traders are taking an extended weekend. As such, we can expect lower trading volumes on Monday. The first half of 2017 saw one of the strongest starts to the year since 2013 with the S&P up 8.2% with 24 Record Highs and NASDAQ even better finishing the halfway mark up 14$ with 38 Record Highs. Will this pace continue for the remainder of this year? Get my take here in this weekly round-up below.
