But...just a few weeks ago (after the midterms) you were crowing about how great the market was doing because of Trump?

SO MUCH FAIL :lamo

You really aren't trying to make serious posts any more, are you?

On every article I have read about the stock market dipping not once was the Democrats taking control of the house mentioned as a reason. Trump's tweeting as well as his antagonistic and inconsistent trade policy is however.

Yes it appears that Trumps trade war and obvious incompetence is instigating another worldwide recession or at least the fear of it. Stocks are always about the future.

“We have normalization of monetary conditions, that’s one thing, so we are in a late stage environment. Then we have this escalation in tariffs and trade … We have things like Brexit. All of these things lead to losses of investment confidence and I mean real economic investment confidence,” Wiitman warned.

Central banks have started ending to their crisis-era accommodative policies, with the U.S. Federal Reserve, in particular, increasing interest rates — which are set to translate into higher mortgage payouts and less available income for consumers.

At the same time, the U.S. has imposed new tariffs against global trade partners and these nations have retaliated. The trade tensions are set to continue with Europe currently preparing for new duties on its cars. IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde told CNBC last month that the trade tensions are the “biggest” risk for economic growth in the euro zone.

The stock market hates uncertainty, and with control of the US House of Representatives changing hands, as well as all the Mueller news in court the last week or so, the market is going to react negatively. Plus, there is always an end of the year sell-off, dividend taking, and distribution payout - although this has been a good bit larger than the normal percentage of such profit taking tax sheltering.

I personally feel that it has more to do with Democrats and potential of re-instating unneeded regulations that were removed over the past two years, and the fact that the Democrats look like their more interesting in investigating than legislating, the market is concerned.

That said, the outlook by the OMB and many other economic prognosticators is that the next 12 months is looking very positive overall for the economy and the continued increase in growth numbers that have been a hell of a lot higher over the last year than anyone would have predicted, and the bear market should not have that negative of an impact. Unless, that is, it continues into the next six months but there should still be a delay before the economy as a whole is effected, so we're 18 to 24 months away from any potential down-turn/recession.

I knew from day one that not a single one of you Republicans who have been celebrating during the last two final years of the Obama boom would take responsibility when the economy inevitably down turned. You own all three branches of government and you're already placing the blame on everyone else but the people in power. Pathetic, as usual.

Enter this thread in the competition for most intellectually dishonest thread title ever.



Oh by the way, trade wars are good and easy to win.

The stock market slump is largely due to the trade war with China, which is a necessary band-aid to rip off. The other factor is the fear of another interest rate hike by the fed.

Wow. No caps lock! Well done. The content is still off, but at least it looks better so we'll celebrate the little changes.

Obviously, we need more tax cuts for corporations.

That completely understates the influence of the Bolivian Hyperparadox Effect.

And if stocks were soaring you would be giving Trump all the credit.

This is why you are number 1 on my list of irrational posters.

No fail at all. It was a fact at the time but as the Dems started beating the chests and ranting on and on about how much free stuff they were going to give out and how they were going to run a scorched earth campaign on Trump's tax policies the realization dawned on investors that::hitsfan:

The smell of Trumpster desperation is getting thick.

That hasn't been mentioned at all. What has come up though is the possible Fed hike of interest rates, and healthcare companies taking a hit due to the federal judges ruling. The Democrats are still outnumbered in the Senate so they're not going to have the leverage to do as you say; not to spook investors anyway.

The House writes the Budget and tax legislation - that's a lot of power and Dems still have enough power in the Senate to filibuster.

Sure that's not why the market is doing what it's doing; there are more immediate concerns causing the dip.
