this is why presidents usually don't tweet about stock gains daily, so once it inevitably tumbles, you can also stay silent.

Hot Rod will be along presently to explain why this is not Trump's fault, even though he is to credit for the previous gains.

Maybe it is because that linebacker got killed by an illegal and that Trump has failed to protect Americans. There will be no wall, and illegals won’t be deported. People knows it now. Trump has outed himself as a very weak and incompetent leader. So people are losing faith in Trump and the DOW plunges as a result.

it's because the FBI has been exposed as a totally corrupt organization... plus all Democrats are treasonous... Trump must be made supreme leader for the good of all

this might actually be a good thing overall. last wages rise was solid so finally, finally there are legit inflation predictions. Therefore investors are scared of Fed reacting

Watching Hack Rod fluster about is going to be hilarious. Or maybe he'll just stay out of this thread altogether.

sadly that Trump tweet is fake... but i did come across these in confirming it...

some of child Trump's war on Macy's for making a business decision:
======

@Macys stock just dropped. Interesting. So many people calling to say they are cutting up their @Macys credit card. Thank you!

Macy’s was very disloyal to me bc of my strong stance on illegal immigration. Their stock has crashed! #BoycottMacys

Good news, disloyal @Macys stock is in a total free fall. Don't shop there for Christmas!

===========
and the 2-year tale of Trump & his iPhone screen (i probably missed some, but you'll probably get the gist...):


I have a lot of @Apple stock--- and I miss Steve Jobs. Tim Cook must immediately increase the size of the screen (Apr 2013)

I can’t believe Apple isn’t moving faster to create a larger iPhone screen. Bring back Steve Jobs! (Jul 2013)

Apple is finally considering a large screen for the I-Phone-they better get moving fast. When I told them to do this last year, they scoffed (Jul 2013)

@CarlCICahn Carl, keep lt going, I have a lot of Apple stock. Push them to QUICKLY come out with a larger screen for the I-PHone (Samsung) (Aug 2013)

As a stockholder in Apple, they should get on with a larger screen iPhone as a supplement—immediately. (Sep 2013)

@iPhoneTeam Better get a large screen iPhone, and fast, or risk losing even more business. Samsung cannot believe you have not acted! DUMB! (Sep 2013)

I cannot believe that Apple didn't come out with a larger screen IPhone. Samsung is stealing their business. STEVE JOBS IS SPINNING IN GRAVE (Sep 2013)

My comments on a larger screen iPhone were in addition to existing unit, not a replacement. Screen should be 10% larger than Samsung. (Sep 2013)

Apple must make the IPhone screen bigger. Losing major market share. (Oct 2013)

As an addition, Apple must go to a larger screen now--asap! They're losing their standing in the market! (Oct 2013)

Apple's iPhone sales fell way short-they must go to a larger screen, as alternative, fast (as I said long ago)! Samsung's size much better. (Jan 2014)

I predicted Apple's stock fall based on their dumb refusal to give the option of a larger iPhone screen like Samsung. I sold my Apple stock (Jan 2014)

I wonder if Apple is upset with me for hounding them to produce a large screen iPhone. I hear they will be doing it soon—long overdue. (Mar 2014)

I’ll bet if I didn’t harass Apple for the last 2 years about the large screen iPhone, they wouldn’t have done it—but it bends & breaks! (Sep 2014)

I don't get what's so hard about this. Trump is God, Obama is Satan. When good things happen, it's because God made them happen. When bad things happen, it's because Satan is evil.\


Understand now?

Trump has already explained:

"In the “old days,” when good news was reported, the Stock Market would go up. Today, when good news is reported, the Stock Market goes down."

If they stopped fucking with it, it would be at 8-12%.

That's fine.

I really don't care where rates are at, I'm purchase focused (with an emphasis on cash-heavy high-income REI), not refi. A recession would actually be quite excellent for me, but I'm fine if there isn't one.

I just want stability.

8-12% is not recession level mortgage rates. Its normal mortgage rates. People forget that.

You cannot have stability before there is a return to normalcy.
