That was me being sarcastic…I thought you know the drift by now.


#1595

Then why haven’t y’all done the same? :smile:

You guys seem to be very smart, though some of you guys are out of what I call living out of the spectrum of reality.

There’s a trend on all what you do. And a trend on what walls street does. If you can catch that trend, then you have achieved the famous “having a crystal ball” for investments.

What you don’t want to realize is that the economy is in a peril. It is not because interests rates %, but the fact is that there’s a trend to centralize the economy on whatever this idiot president says.

He is forcing reality on the minds of those dumbfounded enough to believe whatever he says. One day he says something, he does it not without having an interest on the results. He attacks job creators not because of what they are doing to the economy, but for stupid and personal reasons.

He hates rich, apolitical people because he is not one of them. He screws up the economy, but before he does that, he makes sure his partners are ready to sell or to buy depending of what investments they have in the stock market.

You just haven’t got it. Have you?

How much is the market up since May, 2014?


#1601

I hear fbi raided trump’s long time personal lawyer. Whats up with that?


#1602

Futures were down, and now up. Bogle was right. Wtf.


#1603

Futures are 285 up with this news

Xi Jinping just said he’ll remove barriers to Chinese markets (automobiles in particular), help protect foreign IP (as long as foreign governments protect Chinese IP), and enter a new era of cooperation. Future skyrocketed instantly.


#1604

Hahaha !!! Why can’t they make up their mind : trade war or no trade war?


#1605

Trump for the win… It’s just like tax reform.


#1606

Mr.Market is as usual crazy !

This shows market is ready to fall for any news, means people are speculative (not based on fundamentals) chasing returns, ready to cash profit and run away.

This is why I am skeptical in the long run.


#1607

Looks like what trump wanted? Or more like planned volatility (whatever that means). All this happened way too fast.

I am curious about fbi raid though. @marcus335 thoughts?


#1609

Both of them don’t want trade war , it’s just negotiation tactics. trump won again.
china always talk big at first and chicken out at last, just look at their previous history, south china sea about the ruling remember.

No clue. The payment to someone and signing of a NDA isn’t illegal. Look at Tiger Woods. He had a ton of mistresses, paid money all the time, and had them sign NDA agreements. There wasn’t a FBI investigation.

I’m honestly far more concerned about all the text messages between completely biased FBI agents. McCabe is the tip of the iceberg. I don’t think FBI scandal would rock the market though.


#1611

:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Xi for World Leadership!!!

Up up and away!!!


#1612

I dont know if anyone would bother dirting trumps relationship with a pornstar. It is an old news. This smells more than that. Maybe a desparate attempt to find something? It is the fear that is rocking the market.


#1613

No, this is about you as a hypocrite person allowing a man bringing the allegedly victims of another president to a presidential debate, and those “crimes” were so old, from the 80s, meaning he was su pure, but now found paying a pornstar to keep her silent over a sexual affair while his wife was recuperating after giving birth to their only son.

It is about you as a person, rather than anybody trashing a trashy president.

That is, that’s the type of man you want for your daughter. Right?

And also speaks volume about women supporting this dirty incident. Wow!


#1614

I guess some people don’t know the difference between consensual sex and sexual abuse. It must be hard to understand like simple interest vs compound interest. Personally, I’d never let anyone who doesn’t know the difference near any women that I know.

China’s Xi Jinping pledges to cut auto tariffs amid US trade clash

Xi promised the cut in auto tariffs alongside a series of other measures to further open up China’s economy to the wider world during a speech at a development conference on the Chinese island of Hainan. But many of the steps Xi outlined in broad terms are ones that Beijing has previously proposed in some form.

The Chinese government had promised in November to “gradually and properly” reduce tariffs on imported vehicles, but it didn’t give a specific time frame for doing so.

So don’t be too happy yet.
