http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The ISM Manufacturing PMI dropped below 60 for the first time this year, as constraints in the supply chain show it's effect in Manufacturing data.  It came in at 59.5 for July.  Construction Spending only rose 0.1% for June.  Stocks are Up today, as comments by Fed Member Brainard indicated that the Fed will most likely not begin tapering talk at it's Jackson Hole meeting later this month.  She indicated they will want to see some data after kids have returned to school and people begin to go back to work.  So, Investors are thinking that the earliest that the Fed will begin discussing tapering will be it's November meeting.  Investors are keeping an eye on the progress of the Infrastructure bill in Congress.  MBS is off it's earlier highs, but still...

Firework shows on the 4th of July. Tequila and Tacos the weekend before last. We seem to have enjoyed a bit of a return to normal here in California lately. Unfortunately, the Delta variant of COVID-19 put mask mandates back in place for everyone when indoors. Sadly, officials canceled the annual Ventura County Fair this year. But, visitors may satisfy their "fair tooth" with the Ventura SummerFest 2021 Carnival instead.What: Ventura SummerFest 2021Where: Ventura Fairgrounds (10 W Harbor Blvd)When: Aug 4th to Aug 15th, 3 pm to 10 pm Mon through Fri, 12 pm to 10 pm Sat & SunAdmission: Free (tickets required for carnival rides)Ventura SummerFest 2021If we cannot enjoy the Ventura County Fair this year, at least we get the next best thing...SummerFest! Sure, the size of the fair we are use...

My version of a Tuscan Tortellini Salad.... our friend Rocky Dickerson  has asked us to share some easy Summer Recipes.  Hence not to disappoint him and Michael Jacobs  let me share with you one of the easiest meals you can create. Now just to be clear you can change out the amount as well as the combinations of ingredients. I like to err a little bit on the extravagant side. In addition I made this meal purely  without salami or prosciutto, since Diane has stopped eating any type of pork ever since the movie BABE came out. Needless to say that has been a while:) Clearly you can add it and I am sure you will be thrilled with a good quality prosciutto. I would say about 1/2 cup nicely  chopped.  I do not use salt, so if you are a salt fanatic, I  recommend kosher salt but that is up to y...

By Nataliya Isom, CPA helping taxpayers with IRS problems
    A taxpayer may always stand for themselves before the IRS. However, many taxpayers find dealing with the IRS frustrating, time-consuming, frightening or all the above. The drawbacks of a taxpayer representing themselves are many: The taxpayer does not have the specialist's knowledge or realize what the choices are or how to get the lowest arrangement permitted by law. Three out of five Offers-In-Compromise presented by the taxpayer are denied by the IRS. Many taxpayer - negotiated offers bid to the IRS significantly more than is mandatory by law. The taxpayer may be too scared, exasperated or overwhelmed by the IRS to bargain a resolution successfully or contentedly. Most taxpayers are far better-off keeping their distance from the IRS and many prefer to leave the wrangling to their...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  Initial Jobless Claims continue to disappoint again, as they remain in the 400k range; which happens to be this week's report (400k exactly).  Another trend popped up, is the Continuing Claims, which is starting to rise again.  Something we'll need to watch closely!  We get our first look at Q2 GDP, which forecasts are calling for 8.5%; however, the report is very disappointing, as it is being reported at 6.5%.  We will get 2 more looks, which could be revised.  Pending Home Sales dropped 1.9% in June, which some are saying that it could be a cooling off period for housing.  We'll see!  Stocks are shrugging off the data today, as Investors are giving more weight to Corporate Earnings.  Meanwhile, MBS is showing signs of a possible trend reversal; and ...

http://MikesDailyMarketReport.com:  The FOMC will wrap up their 2 day meeting today and give their announcement at 11am PST.  We're not expecting any rate changes and there won't be any dot plot released today.  Currently, the Market is waiting on the Fed, so it could get really choppy out there in the afternoon.  Investors are tiring of hearing the same rhetoric; and many are pushing for tapering to happen sooner than later, as inflation continues to rise.  The Stock Market is Mixed, as the DOW is currently the only index in the Red; however, it's very light trading, so it can quickly change.  MBS is currently Down 5bps, which puts Mortgage Rates in the same type of pricing as yesterday's close.  Yields climbed back above the technical level and sitting just a hair under 1.26%.Please s...
