Haven't quite a few here given Obama credit for the last year's run up? You know, following Obama's trend line (of gaining 600 points for 2016).

So this downturn, IS ALL OBAMA's FAULT.


Sure--give Obama credit for the entire rise and then you can give him credit for the recent fall as well.

Just be consistent. That's all we're asking.

Thank Trump for the economy improving.

Blame no president for market fluctuations.

That is all.

Yeah but these things we don't know-in hindsight it will be very clear-a pause or a massive leg down?

So far I haven't heard a good explanation even for this correction, let alone a potential "massive leg down".

It is not inconsistent to credit Obama for the past year, and blame Trump for what is to come. Holding a given course is easy. It's the course corrections and decision you make at the helm that are your legacy. To date Trump and the Fed chair have been status quo.

These are currently some interesting waves though. Let's see. Currently the market sees the turbulent flatulence of a porn star raw dogger charlatan. Does it continue?

I don't blame Trump for a '1/2 year gain' sell off in the markets over the past week. I'll blame or credit him for what is next.

did you look at SRS? Good short vehicle (without actually shorting since your buying a short ETF on the long side) for rising rates and hedging long positions against a market crash, up quite a bunch today.

Where is the "massive inflation"? In 3% raise the workers have received last year after a decade of no wage growth? That's massive, allright. Yuuuge!

Same profit taking we saw after the 1986 Tax Cuts, a big reason for the 1987 Drop.

Exactly, not from inflation.

1) My take, the "Memo" scared some people and the Algobots decided to sell, based on some unknown news.

2) Retail investors have decided to take some cash off of the table, after a 30%+ rise the last year.

3) Once the "bots" start selling, they start feeding off of each other, and some shorts get triggered, adding to the mess.

There was really no negative economic news to trigger it, actually just the opposite, with the jobs report being good, corporate earnings up, etc. Even today we have a really low unemployment report (good news) but still had a sell off. Since 80% of trading is done computer against computer, basic fundamentals don't seem to matter anymore.

But on the flip side, I'll take that 18.98% gain the last year compared to an historical average 6%-8% annual gain. Heck, the last two years of Obama, we got -2% in 2015 and like 4% in 2016, not counting the Trump bump in the end, so it's been a Grand Slam the last year under Trump.

So central banks and fiat currencies inflate as naturally as your uncle Bob at Thanksgiving dinner. It's what they do. Since our latest incarnation of a central bank circa 1913, the US dollar has lost over 90% of it's purchasing power(i.e. inflation). We stopped redeeming dollars for gold in the 30's, abandoned gold altogether in the 70's, and haven't had a decade without a market crash since. Starting in '08 was this thing called QE, printing presses working overtime.

What about all the fucking homeless people in in San Diego? I've lived here 22 years and this is the most I've ever seen. If things are really as good as your government numbers tell you, shouldn't there be less homeless people, not more?

Economy seems to be doing solid by my area. Could it be the homeless got more money in other regions and made their way out to CA? I know it's a little far fetched, but I'd venture to guess a lot of the current homeless are not lifelong CA residents. Just one theory, not saying that's what it is.

If I was homeless in 2 years and having traveled all around the states, CA would be my first choice since I wouldn't be owning a home and living outside mostly. Chicago or any cold weather city would be a nightmare for a homeless person, especially on a day like today for Chicago. Greyhound bus fares aren't all that much.

You can thank your Dem controlled legislature for that. There's a reason CA leads the nation for the highest number of people on welfare.

Let that sink in and marinate for a few minutes.

That's years 7 and 8 of Obama's term (you know, the amazing RECOVERY after the recession), after adding how many TRILLIONS of debt to the economy. The market flat lined the last two years.

Yet, some here, want us to believe the 2017 rise in the market was because it was just following the Obama previous "trend line".

I see your point. I try to avoid looking too closely for logic and reason in an economy run like this. Do you really need to jump down the rabbit hole if you know what's at the bottom?

I'm a believer in the Austrian viewpoint that we over-compartmentalized economics(actually most education), and lost a lot of understanding of root cause as a result. my comment was to the health of the economy overall.

Would you like to swap those gains with the ones you received during 2015 and 2016?

We got too comfortable watching new records day after day. After an approx 35% upside in a little over a year, there had to be a correction, it was way overdue.

Let's hope it's done and we can continue back up.
