This is what you need to know today.

Mueller Crosses The Red Line

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly expanded his investigation into a broad range of financial affairs of Trump, his family and his associates going back a decade.  This is allegedly crossing Trump’s red line.

Speculation is swirling that Trump is considering firing Mueller for investigating his business affairs.  Trump lacks direct authority to fire Mueller but can proceed by firing Justice Department officials and replacing them with people willing to fire Mueller.

Dollar Drops On Potential Consequences

The dollar has dropped on potential consequences of Mueller probe.

Gold Rises

Gold is priced in dollars.  As the dollar drops, gold price is rising.  If the situation deteriorates, gold can rise further.

Stocks Don’t Care

Stocks are under the control of the momo crowd.  The momo crowd doesn’t care about anything other than their hope of the price going up.  If history is any guide, momo will continue its behavior until the price actually goes down and they start losing money.

STRONG HOUSING, TRUMP FORCES REPEAL, BEARISH API ON OIL

This is what you need to know today.

Strong Housing Starts

After some weak recent data on housing, the data released this morning is strong.

Housing Starts came at 1215K vs. 1196K consensus.  Building Permits came at 1254K vs. 1160K consensus.

Trump Forces Repeal Vote

Senate GOP leader’s plan to repeal Obamacare now without a replacement appears to be dead due to defections.  However, Trump is requesting a vote on the bill.   There is speculation that Trump plans to retaliate against defecting Senators.

Another Healthcare Scare

There is a new healthcare scare.  The U. S. government pays on a monthly basis to insurers for subsidies to low income people.  There is a scare going on that Trump may withhold the payment to force collapse of Obamacare.

Affect Of Healthcare On Stocks

A big part of the rally in stocks is based on hope of Trump agenda getting implemented.  Healthcare issues are stalling the Trump agenda.  In theory, the market should fall on this stall.  For this reason we pay a lot of attention to healthcare issues in Washington.

So far the market has not fallen because the market is being controlled by the momo crowd.  The momo crowd does not care about anything other than the price.   They will continue to buy until they start suffering losses.

Gold

Gold is holding its gains from yesterday.  Trading is muted.

Bearish API Data On Oil

API data shows that crude inventories climbed 1.6 million barrels vs. consensus of a decline of 3 million barrels.  Rising inventories are bad for oil prices.  Traders are now waiting for EIA data that will be released at 10:30 am ET.
