    Watch Stocks Fall Today

    Trump threatened to impose a 25% tax er, "tariff" on Chinese goods over the weekend. So, the question is. How devastating will this stupid idea be to the stock market?

    No. But I did read it earlier this AM, which spurred the idea for my thread.

    It is not going to be pretty today, most marketing in Europe shed a good 1.5% and there is no reason to assume we will avoid a selloff today.

    Another buying opportunity. You make your money when you buy.

    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    No one is in control.

    I predict that the DOW will be at 2500 by Mother's Day. The wold economy will collapse. People, starving and homeless will take to the streets and plead for Social Democrats to save them from the horrors of economy. Trump will be thrown from office and jailed in Guantanamo.

    Once the transition to a sane, rational controlled, one world, green economy is complete we will see prosperity and equality for the middle class as Capitalism is properly relegated to the trash heap of history.

    The stock market is the most unpredictable thing in the world and the US POTUS has little control over it. I'm just waiting to see what my portfolio looks like. Time will tell.

    Well, it would also be fantastic if bird **** cleaned your windshield but that isn't the way the world works.

    See, a little adversity now and again is a GOOD thing. Overcoming adversity is how we GROW as people and as a society. It's how we figure out what the best methods for SURVIVAL are. When we stop being challenged we get complacent and when we get complacent then others who are not complacent come in and kick our asses.
