Trump World! Where the circus is always in town.
Last year, 2017, Trump and his brood would not shut up about the stock market. As if he were responsible for it's good fortune when we all know from school that the first year of a Presidents term he has little to no impact on it.

This year, which is now his market, not a peep. The market has been a disaster. Completely flat after years of expansion under Obie.

What a fake piece of garbage this guy is.

Notice the Stock market Crashed after the Democrats were elected promising to take their Crumbs back.

Yes the MArket peaked then corrected.. only after a 6000 point gain.

you look at market history, Market peak Bush 15,000, Market peak Obama 19,000 ~4000 point gain.

Market peak Clinton ~11,000 bush had a ~4000 point peak over clinton

Well first the market did not hit 15,000 under Bush, it just broke 14,000. THEN by the time the great shrub left office the market was down to 7000 and still sliding !!!! A 7000 POINT LOSS !!!! It nearly TRIPLED from 6500 to more than 19,000 under Obama.

Yes the market has ups and downs Peaks and Troughs.. economy cycles.

But as I stated.. Obama's economy had the least gains. over the previous administration.

if you want to compare you have to compare the peaks with the peaks. Remember Bush only had 6 months of a bad economy. He came in following a tech Bubble Burst, (The NASDAQ lost 50% of its value) from march 2000 to December 2000.

Economy cycles. The markerts under bush recovered. Then the Democrats decided "There was no Crisis" and ignored Bush's warnings.

The market is crap right now. It's probably going to get worse until we get rid of that orange baboon.

The market historically is bad at the end of the year. You would have made a lot of money over the years by selling in August and buying in December. Nothing new here.

Never heard of the Santa Claus rally?

In the past 10 years you would only have been right once. Most years you would have walked away from lots of cash using that strategy.
