So you think US markets did well - International did better.

U.S. stocks posted exceptional gains in 2017. For the first time since 2012, international equities did even better.

Global stock benchmarks have surged to multiyear or record highs this year, boosted by a rally in shares of technology companies, a synchronized pickup in growth around the world and unexpectedly benign inflation readings that have kept central bank policy ultraloose.

That's why they keep Flattering Trump. They love it when a smart man is in charge of the free world making everyone money but the Liberal Arts Public Panic sector.

Don't guess debt is a problem.
"Total debt rose by $16 trillion in the third quarter compared to end-2016"

"But debt ratio to global gross domestic product fell for the fourth quarter in a row as the world economy expanded"
MAGA will eliminate all debt & no one will have less than $1 Billion CASH!

The US market did better because

1. The burden of taxes shifted from companies to debt
2. The world economy is doing better
3. Some regulation removed ( such as oil explorations etc)
4. The previous president left a robust economy

I do not see any of the above sustainable, such as education, our global influence ( receding), investment in technology or creating a good working environment ( such as not allowing H1-Bs)

That was not a particularly coherent or useful comment, but as it attacks no other user specifically, I guess it stays.

Don't be too sure. You never know if Trump is masquerading on this forum ;-)
