Getting started this year took a bit longer than usual.
When I returned home from the Bahamas, I had to hook up an entirely new system of computers and peripherals. To top it off, everything is in a new version of Windows.

Of course, the oil price "Grinch" is still with us. He outstayed his welcome weeks ago, but with the shorts still driving oil prices lower he's decided to extend his stay.
And as the first two trading sessions this week have shown, the instability in the energy sector remains as well.
But as I'll show you, it's not all bad news.
