"Jesus gave us a new norm of greatness.  If you want to be important—wonderful.  If you want to be recognized—wonderful.  If you want to be great—wonderful.  But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.  That is a new definition of greatness...  Everybody can be great,  Because everybody can serve.  You only need a heart full of grace, and a soul generated by love.  And you can be that servant."

Martin Luther King

"Non serviam.  (I will not serve)."


Stocks were wobbly most of the day. An effort to take the big cap tech stocks fizzled, with the Dow and the SP 500 lagging most of the day.

Gold and silver were listless. The Dollar finished unchanged.

As a reminder there will be a stock option expiration on Friday.

We will see Jay Powell's first FOMC meeting as the Chairman next week.  A 25 bp rate hike is widely expected.

Have a pleasant evening.
