and your response to my comment about partisanship is to automatically side with the right and attack the left

give me a break already


That's because the dumbasses on the left ALWAYS side with the establishment and the Fed. Your grievance is misdirected at me... bitch at your party's fools who play the Fed's game happily and, I'm sure, at great personal fiscal gain.

That's precisely what most of them did with their tax cuts.

20 years ago quotes? Obsolete in today's financial and political theater.

Things have flipped. Try to keep up.

If you'll notice... the more the media ran headlines relating to the Mueller investigation creating criminal liability for the POTUS, the worse the market selloff became.

It WAS stupid for POTUS to keep touting the stock market, as evidence of the economy doing well... he should have just used the economic indicators. The stock market is NOT an indicator of economic health... it is an indicator of the sentiment of those who have tons of capital in play in the equities... and what they think will happen in the future.

Clearly, they see the change of the guard in Congress as a negative for the equities and investment markets. Why wouldn't they? No president has boosted business confidence so much while under such a constant blistering attack by nearly the entirety of the media.

They expect trouble for POTUS in the near term, and congress sets the tempo of policy in the general economy, and it has been taken over by Democrats.

So what is the equity market saying?

"Fasten your seat-belts, please."

The fed implied they would raise interest rates two more times in 2019. Interest rates have been on a steady incline since Trump took office. Rising interest rates are bad for bonds and borrowing is more expensive for corporations. The fed raises interest rates to counter inflation. As part of raising interest rates the fed sells government securities, thereby decreasing the amount of money available to the ecomony in exchange for bonds.

So basically the fed doesnt want you to get too rich too fast. Things are going too good, and they are pulling the reigns back to slow the growth by decreasing the value of your money because the economy is growing faster than GDP.

I should have checked into that. My guess would be we have real GDP growth, not QE compensating for the difference between actual GDP and target GDP, so the growth looks same. Under Obama we never hit target GDP without QE. Now we face QT -- Quantative Tightening.

it doesn't make any sense though most of the market has been debt based and stock buybacks by large corporations

seekingalpha.com...
money.cnn.com...




Apple (AAPL) alone spent a whopping $45 billion on buybacks during the first half of 2018, triple what it did during the same time period last year, the firm said. That included a record-shattering sum during the first quarter.

Amgen (AMGN), Cisco (CSCO), AbbVie (ABBV) and Oracle (ORCL) have also showered investors with big


so what's happening??

Because they are going to crash the markets and blame it on Trump? I suspect the hit the DOW and other markets around the world have taken is temporary though and they will recover.


Since their money, like Trump's money, is tied in to the stock exchange, it would be a really stupid thing for them to do.

It would be like amputating your leg just to ruin someone's carpet.

10 companies account for almost 80% of all buybacks in 2018. Apple is one, and they have an underperform rating amid china-us trade tension.
