Bitcoin lost half its value, this correction was due regardless. And I'm sure there's no shortage that will see this as a buying opportunity.

Apparently Wall Street thinks that there is something to this memo.

It's not the memo


I suppose Bitcoin might have something to do with this.

Trump will step right up and take full credit and responsibility....


If stocks go up 50% and down 10%, Trump gets credit for stocks going up 40%
It's not fair for you guys to give credit to Obama for the rally, and blame Trump for the pull back.

Politics aside, are any of you going to see this a a buying opportunity?

I suspect that Monday morning may be a good time to buy before the market goes back up. I am eyeing two stocks that are now at their 52 week lows.

Agreed. Yes he does. That said, the Stock market was already on the upswing, so he does not get 100% of the credit. The Obama effect wanes as we move away from 2016

Some posters here on Patnet have difficulty with math.

Yes, definitely.

Looking at the futures Sunday night/early Monday morning will give you a good idea which way it will open.

The Obama effect

Asking a question. Do you seriously believe this? I don't believe it's Trump either.

I know this is a stiff task, probably not even doable. Can anyone here prove, with even suspect evidence, a president being able to move say GDP even 0.2% in one direction or another over a years time? While I don't research this sort of thing I have a feeling it will be crickets.

Stop giving so much credit to one person that signs shit on their desk.

I keep hearing from liberals that Obama was responsible for the market surging over the past year. I wonder if he could have done anything differently during his 8yr term to have prevented the decline this week?

buy early on monday, since it'll recover and at least make some quick cash.

Do they hate Trump so much that they prefer to lose money just so they can criticize him?

I fully expected a bounce back. Either way I think it's a good time to double down. I think it'll have to go back up, so even if I'm not buying on bottom, I'm sure not buying at the top. Catch what I mean?
