Why dont you go through the last year of my posting following the economy. Feel free to pick a part each individual thread and post more ignorance and insults and I will just continue to keep doing what I'm doing while you are proven wrong
No need to debate with you when you are as arrogant as you are. Once again time will prove me correct.
All I gotta do is wait and you will prove I don't know what I'm talking about.
I would also like to point out. In your ignorance you never actually addressed the topic of the thread.
Understanding QE and QT is so basic I dont get why you think that makes you important?
One of my favorites is Peter Schiff. Bet you think hes an idiot dont you?
But Mukherjee and others also argue that a change of control in one or both chambers could be a positive, offering a counterweight to the White House’s trade policies.
With Trump’s signature tax cut and fiscal package already enacted, the midterms “could act as a check on market/economy-unfriendly rhetoric and actions by the Trump administration, particularly as it gets closer to the elections,” Parker said.
Here's some interesting info for you. Nobody cared about the election.
So when the Fed starts QT and cuts off the money supply guess what?
The market pulls back. The Dec bear market was a response to the Fed making debt less available and unserviceable.
Need proof? Look at the slow down in the housing market since the Fed began raising rates.
When you think the Dems winning a few seats in the house is enough to create a bear market then it's obvious you haven't a clue.
Nah Schiff knows the economy well.
This is from another one of my favorite sites. Market Watch. The analyst thought the Dems would actually HELP the market stabilize by offering a counter balance to Trump
Let me say itagain.. nobody cared about the election.

Maybe you need to make the challenge a little easier.
Apparently I to make it like a 3rd grade homework assignment cause not a single person actually met the challenge.
The bond market continues to tell us that the Fed should stop raising interest rates. The 10-year US Treasury (TLT) rate has fallen below 3%. Meanwhile, the 10-year minus the 2-year Treasury rate has dropped to just ten basis points and is nearing inversion. Rates on the long-end of the curve are telling the us that the Fed should be nearly finished raising interest and that there should be no rate hikes in 2019.
Traders of short-term U.S. interest-rate futures are, for their part, betting the Fed may halt its rate hikes altogether next year, and could even move to cut borrowing costs.
Contracts tied to the Fed’s target rate rose on Monday, reflecting rising worries about U.S. growth prospects
Also adding to worries are signs that inflation expectations are slipping, and that the U.S.-China trade dispute has hit rougher waters. All this has weighed on the U.S. stock market as the S&P Index .SPX hit an 8-month low early Monday.
Contracts expiring in June 2020 are now fetching a higher price than contracts expiring a year earlier, meaning traders are beginning to put some money on a rate cut.
"For sophisticated bond market investors, no three words invoke more fear and debate than 'inverted yield curve,'"
2. The ongoing trade war
After U.S. President Donald Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping last weekend, the White House announced that Trump will hold off on raising tariffs on Chinese products to 25 percent for 90 days
But with interest rates rising and U.S. economic growth expected to slow next year, worries are building from Washington to Wall Street that corporate debt is approaching potentially dangerous levels.
“I’ve been more worried about the bond market than the equity market,” said Kirk Hartman, global chief investment officer at Wells Fargo Asset Management. “I think at some point, all the leverage in the system is going to rear its ugly head.”
Conversely, higher interest rates mean that consumers don't have as much disposable income and must cut back on spending.
"Rising interest rates slow the housing market as people buy payments, not houses, and rising rates mean higher payments."
If you think the stock market is going to surge following the midterm elections, then statistics are on your side. But history also suggests that you’ll have to endure a weaker-than-expected market as Election Day nears.
let me yell this out loud for you RATE CUT, IN ORDER TO INCREASE THE MONEY SUPPLY DUE TO A GLOBAL SLOWDOWN
Last i checked they made a statement about increasing balance sheets and raising rates
That will result in very high inflation.
you see how I know EXACTLY what I'm talking about?
do you see how in this thread I'm providing sources, even MSM sources that all have links to sources and data and offer analysis that confirms my positions?
