im not thrilled when i see trump open his yap and cause a 2% hit on the market but its not his job to prevent short term hits to the market. its also not in my best interests to care too much about these short term hits.

(the day is over so im aware it wasnt so bad but that isnt the point)

After equities reaching all-time highs last week, today's action was simple profit-taking, followed by bargain hunting.

Political theater was a good excuse, as always.

I made money today off the volatility, the only way to fly. Yaps away!

Good Luck!

But you don't have TDS. Sufferers of TDS are busy reloading so that they can shoot themselves in the other foot.

Most have been quite conscious that inappropriate, untimely and ill-thought comments can cause waves in the market, both up and down, and have enough sense to avoid making them.

When the House of Orange makes a comment that's not inappropriate, untimely and ill-thought, let me know.
