i'm having a field day now with the stocks down 2,000 points

i'm busy reallocating my holdings into former Dogs-of-the-DOW equities rather than the never bought /over priced/social media type FAANG stocks that the Fed. QE'd to Bubble Xtreme status.

each monthly QT by the Fed, to the tune of $50 billion per month= $600 billion year will result in another loss of 1,000 DOW points for half the month X 12 months

rebalance 'cause we need to feed the illegals to stop them from doing cannibalism things...also the generate more dividends or value to pay for the increased inflation & rate increases the Fed has baked into the system, along with the revised FICA score card stuff

I'm not middle class, I have studied and put it in my own context a new school called my observation and perspective in a fair and balanced way.

I don't care if you agree according to complex money market rhetoric. It is simple at the core. Cliff notes compared to peering into the deep endless abyss of over complicating a debt system with real dynamics which I explained.

That is not it at all. I'm trying to talk about a soul for america despite endless excess. Health over money is what I'm talking about and creating a diverse and higher quality market.

How many scammers are there, fudging finances? How much wool over your eyes by respected officials?

Why would anyone take financial advice from someone who has no money or business acumen. Do you know why starving artists are never asked for their advice on important matters?

There is something to be said for not leading a hyper-materialistic life. If you constantly want what you don't have instead of ever being content with what you do, then you'll never be happy.

At the same time, that doesn't mean you have to put yourself on a life diet if you're leading a healthy budgetary existence either.

Do you notice the most few packages are being sent or received! Supply and Demand dictates how an economy behaves with items shipped and sold.


No, just notice your spreading misinformation.


few days ago, Amazon released its 8-K financial report for the second quarter of 2018, which ended June 30. Revenues continue to skyrocket. For the quarter, revenues increased 39 percent to $52.9 billion, compared with $38 billion for the same period last year. For the first six months of the fiscal year, revenues were $104 billion, compared to $74 billion for the same period last year, an increase of 40 percent.



So you opened with BS why would any go further ?

Amazon's revenue is skyrocketing = economy in good shape and yet you're criticizing someone elses perspective of the economy?

TRY AGAIN

So in order to save the economy, we need to end capitalism, increase unemployment, and raise taxes.

That's not what I am talking about and you know it.

I'm talking about not financing yourself to the gills in order to have two or more cars, the big house, and all the bells and whistles of what people consider the "proper" middle or upper middle-class lifestyle.

Why buy the newest iPhone is your model still works just fine? But a lot of people do. That's the sort of thing I am talking about.
