    That's easy......you only make money in the market when there is blood in the streets, not when it's ho-hum. You have an opportunity....are you a due or trend player ?

    He created 6 Trillion in market cap so far and your still up over 20% since he took over.....what's the problem. I moved many clients into index annuities several weeks ago...they made a big score in the last 12 months and locked in their profits........they are invested in the market but are guaranteed not to lose money.....they think I'm a genius.

    It'll be great when he gets the tanks rollin' in that parade in DC and jets and coppers flying overhead....an lots of soldiers and missles rollin' by.....it'll be a great 4th o July. I can't wait.

    Man does not live on bread alone.

    I'm sure the military has nothing better to do, than parade for trump.

    I use to like to march in parades

    It's priorities.

    A nice, big, fat, juicey military parade on the 4th of July will make people feel good. After the black communist....we can't get enough of ' feeling good '....it will lift spirits and have incalculable value for the spirit of the country.....the true Americans. You've read about them...right ?

    This is Barney,

    I just read on the greatest internet that Genisys (aka Skynet) has taken over the stock market at detriments to us humans. It also suggested that Trump is a terminator with bestest give away if one looks at his very greatest hair very, very closely. It seems plausible to me but does anybody know if true?


    Thank you very much

    Here's how the stock market works:
    1. Inside information is provided to fund managers, who then make make huge trades (with triggers) via ultra high speed networks.
    2. I place a buy order and end up paying 0.25% more per share because of the fund manager trading.
    3. The trading day following settlement, shares I just bought decline by 20% (or more).

    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. Big mistake, and we have so much good (great) news about the economy!

    Shit, even the market doesn't give The Dotard-in-Chief any respect. This is a tweet from Wednesday, chastising the market (that's right, he told an inanimate concept it made a mistake), then it shed another 1000+ points on Thursday.
