What does Hilary have to do with the current stock market? Are you trying to deflect from the Trump bear market? Well, it ain't working.

If day-after-the-election results are as critical as YOU have repeatedly claimed them to be, then you have no choice but to admit the stock market greeted the 2018 blue wave with optimism.

And I notice it's terribly curious you repeatedly ignore these following FACTS:


You're so desperate to blame something on the democrats, you close your eyes and completely ignore the fact that the stock market has been going though crashes on and off all year long. And it is a FACT that all these big tumbles have occurred while republicans have had 100% control of the power in Washington.
Give them a break. They put their money on "Trumponomics" and are losing the shirts off their backs. There is nothing left for them, except trying to blame someone else.

Phma went public saying the market was a great buying opportunity when it was 25 500 If he put his money where his mouth was, then I feel sorry for him.

More rate hikes coming they say. Tell them what to read to get them to stop.
Interpret the data for them.
Take Senator Warren with you she thinks its a great time to open a new business.
Sure sign that business is great.
No one knows more about business than those who have never started or run one, like Warren and Obama.
Warren wrote some books too. Maybe she will lend you one to read.

Don't forget they have reduced the amount of increases originally planned.

Hope you are right and I'm wrong.

I however say Trump owns both the rise and the decline. Just as Obama owns the market decline and the decline in the economy and jobs lost when he was in office. Also the pathetic recovery of both the markets and the economy.
The biggest difference so far is with Trump the economy is still strong and so is employment. Consumer confidence is still high along with other strong economic data. So its still to early to say game over with years left on the clock. Its only half time in the first term.
Russia, is that you again?

Lets face it, people on internet political forums chest pounding and boasting about the financial "moves" they are making with their portfolios probably don't have any money. Someone with substantial assets would only discuss such things in the most general sense imho.

most people with substantial assets aren't here wasting their time on CD. what's happening with the markets may have more to do with Europe than the US.

The F it does. The blame falls squarely with Americans and American policy.

Take responsibility for a change.
