So we've seen the tariffs show up, often followed by a quick dip in the DOW in the morning, that quickly recovers. Is it just that the prospects of a trade war seems to be unlikely, or that its believed that if one occurs it wont be extremely harsh to the bottom line? I'm trying to understand the economics of this better as far as the DOW goes.

We just saw this after the bell:

Do most of you expect more of the same from it? A drop followed by a recovery?

I wish people would stop quoting the Dow as the market indicator. The market shouldn’t be 30 names of unequal weighting

The DOW in this case for me is a indicator of what the big money people are thinking. But theres a ton of complex interactions going on as well. I do comprehend that the DOW and the overall market and economy are different.

Today it seems like we're not getting the bump after the drop.

There have been tough periods in the market. I strongly suspect we are either in one or getting close. Historically, the market has done well over the long-term.

The stock market is not the economy.

But the market is heavily influenced by economic trends.
