It is good for all to remember, the stock market has very little to do with who is in office; this is for the bad results and the good results.

The market is not reacting to the Fed as much as the China tariffs--
IT side of things/NasDaq/Apple and others reflect the China tariff policies Trump instituted w/o Congressional discussion or really warning

And jobs can be cut as well as filled...
It just takes time
One leader in the health care field/nursing and assisted living side says that aging America is putting lot of stress on that industry to find enough workers to fill the need for senior living clients...
Those jobs usually pay low wages--not very desireable if anyone can get better one
So higher job numbers often mean people leaving one job to take a better (if they can get it)
Going to see wage inflation to put people into service jobs like health aide
That can cause inflation effect-not really what Fed wants to hear but it IS part of a burgeoning jobs market...
It is sign of a healthy economy when people are making MORE money--
They can put more into the economy--pay off debts better--save

If the Fed panics at wage growth it could trigger rate hikes that are punative to certain degree

I actually agree, I'm just holding people to their own criteria. If they think politics has all this effect on the economy and the markets, then whenever either or both don't go their way, I'm holding them to their own standard.

Nice to see at least some people who get it.

Maybe that is the only way to get democrats to take responsibility for something. Finally !!!
