watch the 10 year treasury...current 0.912%. bond yields are rising.

today's rise was mainly in the DOW, due to vaccine news (PFE). the nasdaq was down more than 1.5%.

election results, not over yet, but looks like;

-more people voted against trump, than for him. not likely many actually voted FOR biden.
-republicans gained seats in house
-republicans kept the senate

NO blue wave! polls were wrong again! NO mandate for biden or dem policies. dem infighting over 'defund police', 'green new deal' and other policies unpopular with the public. biden will have a 'pen and a phone', and not much else.

considering the media was 90% anti trump, the chinese sent a once in a lifetime pandemic to the usa and around the world, the dems held non stop unsuccessful investigations, trump's performance was remarkable.

i will make this promise, i will treat the new president with the same respect as the left treated trump.

'honest joe'? when one hears an on air personality defined as an HISTORIAN, one might feel this person is an independent, non political, unbiased person. but, not at MSDNC and the BIDEN campaign. jon meacham worked at both places, got paid at both places and amazingly, it wasn't uncovered until just after the election. what timing! this guy just wrote much of biden's acceptance speech (biden knew where he worked), all the while criticizing trump on tv.

just watch, stories like this of misrepresentation, bias, conflict of interest in the dem party and media will be common, as the media tries to cleanse it's soul, after favoring dems for the entire election process. bit by bit,these type stories will be released, normally on a friday evening. not a problem for the media figure, they will lose their job and get hired by biden. payback rewarded.

the good news,without trump to kick around, many of those in the media will soon find themselves without a job.

Day drinking.....

In Nevada, the trump party wants to disqualify hundreds of thousands of votes in Clark County, claiming the machine used to count them was not set on the right setting. Amazingly, they don't claim the votes were changed, only that the settings were not to their liking. The machines and their settings were approved by both parties a week before the election.
They are also insisting that military ballots from Nevada members should not count in the state totals.
The GOP held a press conference where they showed a supposed affidavit about a van with Biden stickers on it delivering boxes of ballots to the counters days later.
When they delivered the "evidence", the complainant's name , address, and contact information were whited out. When it was suggested the van might have been delivering food to workers, that was shown as a possible bias, as well. This would be laughable if so many morons weren't actually falling for this.

Hey, my six Oracle shares are +$5. My lone Amazon share has sunk $220 since purchase; Adobe -$22. My twenty Microsoft shares are -$4. Tearful trio, but I'm mainly in the Dow, so I'll grin and bear it. Lots of grinning these two weeks.

Careful, we are on thin ice here. Just my opinion, I see a big selloff coming. I don’t like the recent Nasdaq numbers either.

Sure. Unfortunately, I must have some NASDAQ exposure with my set up. That’s what the pros deem worthy. But I’m ready to sign on to realignment if things weaken.

I concur mainly because the markets are overpriced across the board, propped up by stimulus, and no other place safe with yield to put your money. CD's less than one %. Bonds have to be bought with large premiums often paying less than two % and are not liquid. Real estate, lots of work and if you don't know what you are doing you will lose your shirt. Annuities, maybe 2-3 percent fixed if you are willing to tie up for 5-7 years. If anyone has any ideas on where to park money with yield and minimum risk please share.

Having fought with the stock market over the past 30 years, currently somewhat ahead, you win a few you lose a few, at 62 I am seriously considering selling all of my stock positions and going back in with 5-7 diversified and balanced ETF's with modest yields.
