Market mixed today.

DOW is down slightly as sideway action around 26,000 looks like a floor may be forming.

Venezuela in the news.
Socialist are destroying the economy with no end to the nightmare in sight.

American companies with exposure are taking huuuuuge losses. Some taking hundreds of millions in write downs for the second year in a row.

This. Also, as was noted, the stock market has been climbing since 2010.

However, I'm glad Trump hasn't Fd up the outlook of the business community. But we must remember as well that after bull comes a bust. I'm an investor and am actually pretty concerned about the bust and when it will occur. We've had too much rising in the past few years and my accounts are averaging a 15-24% increase over the past few years. In normal times it is 5-10% at the most. Good things don't last forever. I hope for the snowflakey feelings of the Trumpsters that the bust isn't soon and won't cause them tears.

But I'm making sure that everything I'm invested in is diversified so when the good times aren't as good, it won't be such a huge blow to my accounts.

I wonder how many of you are fans of FDR's economic policies lol. He had a near 100% gain!

Obama's gain is also impressive considering the crappy economy at the time.

But will note that the S&P is more important to me. My own increases in the past year were 24% in my index funds that are based on the S&P 500. So I am grateful for the money. I'm probably going to move all my money into those index funds this year since the S&P companies are pretty stable and have always consistently gotten me adequate gains.

There was a bump to the upside when the vote was taking place to open the gov. after Schumer announced he was caving to GOP demands. Market hit a new high again is what I heard but not sure about that. I haven't checked that out yet.

So here is the correction in the DOW accelerating to the downside today.

Off about 5% from the all time high. That is a correction.

Buy low, sell high. Or run
