President Donald Trump suggested that a recent swoon in U.S. stock markets is a buying opportunity for investors, even though many analysts blame his policies and Washington gridlock for the plunge.

“We have companies -- the greatest in the world, and they’re doing really well,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Tuesday. “They have record kinds of numbers. So I think it’s a tremendous opportunity to buy. Really a great opportunity to buy.”

Nice call President Trump. Quite a rebound this Wednesday morning!

For the moment, the economic panic has subsided. A cleansing has definitely occurred. Good, bad or otherwise, fairly predictable. Those who were over extended took a bath. It may still get worse, and it could get better.

No doubt some will say this was a manipulation by Donnie's camp to gain an edge. Where's the SEC investigation? Who belongs in prison or is it capitalism's failure, caveat emptor?

Oh well, another day, another dollar more or less. :)

Has your life changed because of this past week's economic antics?

Will Berkshire Hathaway buy more Apple Inc.? Or is that too obtuse?

Please pass the tabasco sauce? The kids are playing stickball in the street and having a grand old time.

Without a doubt, Democrats winning the House of Representatives - vowing to block anything and everything the government tries to do to make Trump look bad - is scaring the hell out of people - and for good reasons. The Democratic Party isn't joking that they'll do everything they can to wreck the economy and government to make Trump look bad.

The House of Representatives is now going to be controlled by the political party that hates the USA and wants the USA and all Americans punished for electing Trump and for their claims of the sins of the USA's path - plus to try to prove capitalism is a failure and must be replaced with socialism. If the Democratic Party gets its way, they will cause a massive economic depression and crisis.

Well it looks like the Democrats winning back the House just resulted in a 600 point gain in the markets today.

Please continue to post your idiotic rants so we can all point and laugh at you. Talk about sour grapes, you had no problem when the republicans declared that they were going to make obama an only first term president. Thank you for demonstrating your hypocritical comments. :lamo

Buy when prices are low? Never heard that before. Trump, who went bankrupt 6 times and called himself the King of Debt, must be a financial genius after all.

Are you channeling Trump?

I knew that, but only because I watched Trading Places, like, fifty times.

The amount of studied dishonesty in these kinds of posts is simply amazing. The person making it doesn't go much beyond a two factor analysis, which isn't an analysis. Namely, first determine the
name next to the President, then determine the letter next to the name.

D President + Good economy ---> Republicans responsible.
D President + Bad Economy ---> Democrats responsible.
R President + Good economy ---> Republicans responsible.
R President + Bad Economy ---> Democrats responsible.

Same thing with deficits, even though they improved into surplus when Clinton was in office, and went from 1.4 trillion to 400ish billion while Obama was in office. Whereas they went from a surplus to 400 billionish under Bush, and have now gone from 400 billionish to 1 trillion+ in an otherwise still good economy (and economy which slowed down a bit once Trump took over, in reality).

So now, when a recession hits, our revenues will crash, quite possibly bringing the deficit over 2 trillion and leaving us increasingly unable to deal with future emergencies.





Naturally, the above poster decides it's time to dishonestly complain about the Democrats. Naturally.

Dow up 1000 points. Thanks, House Democrats!
