Good Morning Friends!
Don't you just love this kind of morning? The cooler temperatures encourage that kind of day where you can grab your cuddliest blanket, pull it over your head and snooze for just a little bit longer. The kids, husband and dogs are slow to get out of bed this morning. Need Proof? Check out this Instagram of my puppy Buddy. It will give you a morning jolt of laughter. My golden retriever was having a real Mariah Carey moment, refusing to give up my girl's favorite reading blanket. I understand Buddy!
National Motorcycle Ride Day
Today is National Motorcycle Ride Day. A day dedicated to get all motorcycle riders out for a united day of riding. After all, riding season is almost over! Today really is the perfect kind of day to go for a motorcycle ride in the beautiful Hudson Valley. The leaves are starting to change to those beautiful hues of red and yellow. Coffee at my favorite spot in Beacon, BankSquare Coffee House, is definitely on tap this morning. If you're not a motorcycle rider, that's ok. You can enjoy some of my favorite motorcycle videos from the past few weeks. Check out Kawasaki's Ninja H2R, the bike is not street legal and it has a whopping $55,000 price tag. Get a look at three of my favorite Indian owned Polaris Motorcycles for 2018. And of course, being a true Harley Girl, I can't forget to show you their hottest bikes for 2018. Below, we introduce you to Brittney Olsen, Founder of 20th Century Racing. I met Brittney last month in Columbus, Ohio @AimExpo. She stood out among all the motorcyclists! She was dressed in vintage motorcycle racing clothes and beaming about her passion for vintage motorcycle riding. You'll hear how she rebuilt an old bike (against the odds) for racing. Watch this video and you can't help smiling!

Sam Stovall on JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America
JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup allocated more money to deal with the possibility of sour consumer credit card debt. Bank of America net charge-offs rose 1% year-over-year to $900 million.
Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA Research, spoke with TheStreet.com's Scott Gamm. He says these movements are normal given how late we are in the bull market. Plus, banks think they can take on a little extra risk in extending credit to consumers given how low unemployment is. Click here for the full interview.
Will Bitcoin Skyrocket to $20,000 Before it Explodes?
The Yellow Metal Ends a Four Week Losing streak as it Gets Back to $1,300
Bitcoin could be set for a major surge higher, but the cryptocurrency is eventually destined for an epic crash. That's the assessment from Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital. He tells Scott Gamm "I think a lot of people unfortunately, have attributed properties to Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that do not exist," he said. "I think that people who are rightfully skeptical of the dollar, the euro, the yen are taking refuge in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies and they've jumped from the frying pan into the fire."
