AirForceVet: But why? Trump has everything under control.


Trump Steaks
Trump University
Trump Casinos
Countless other failed Trump ventures.
Unless something happens VERY soon to right the ship, Trump America might just be the next big flop.

But the tax cuts were supposed to lead to supercharged growth?

Is it time for our viewers to crack open their neighbors' skulls and feast on the gooey innards?

Is D2S gonna claim this, too?

What? No? Surprise!

Yeah, you may want to actually look at what's been happening to bitcoin lately.
 
2018-02-05 04:25:18 PM  
Welp. I didn't want to retire anyway.
 
2018-02-05 04:25:20 PM  
The one upside? Trump will finally stop falsely claiming responsibility for the good economy in his tweets twice a day.
 
2018-02-05 04:25:54 PM  
Looks like the Trump Recovery is subsiding while the Obama Recession takes hold.

I don't know a single trumptard that owns stock.

TFA: Market participants were focused on the threat of higher inflation after Friday's jobs report showed a pickup in wages, which portends more interest rate increases from the Federal Reserve.

"Oh no, the hoi-poi might be making some money that we can't directly control! Sell, sell, scare them into giving it to us!!"
 
2018-02-05 04:26:10 PM  
Oh shiat, WE NEED MORE TAX CUTS, STAT.
 
2018-02-05 04:26:12 PM  
Damn it. I kept telling myself a week ago dump everything this baby is tapped out. Did I listen. No.
 
2018-02-05 04:26:13 PM  
Now witness the economic impact of this fully PASSED and OPERATIONAL Republican tax plan!
 
2018-02-05 04:26:21 PM  
Welcome to the Trump Economy.
 
2018-02-05 04:26:25 PM  
Thanks President Trump.
Where are your self masturbatory tweets now?
 
2018-02-05 04:26:37 PM  
But that one lady got a whole extra $1.50 a week.

Joke's on you!

I just moved all of my savings and 401K to a Cryptocurrency IRA!

I'm gonna be rich!

If your going to panic, be the first to panic!!

On the bright side, if anyone is looking to head for the exits, there will likely be a bull trap shortly, which could be a good chance to move to something more stable without losing a lot of money already invested:

Not sure about that. Dude LOVES records. I'm not sure how he'll work this one into the rotation but he's thinking about it.

Why do the guys on the floor care?  It's not their money.  Plus a lot of investors make money on the down side too.
 
2018-02-05 04:28:18 PM  
Yeah, for a similar percentage drop, you get the biggest point drop because your starting point is higher. It's not rocket trading, folks.
 
2018-02-05 04:28:19 PM  
What we are seeing are delayed impacts of Obama's destructive economic policies. There are top men looking into what can be done to reverse this situation asap. In the meantime, it is strongly suggested that you hold immigrants and kneeling NFL players directly accountable for the weekly drop in your 401k.
 
2018-02-05 04:28:38 PM  
The DJIA is totally fake.  All Real Americans use the Trump Market Index.  The TMI is showing that tremendousness is up 500% and luxury has nearly doubled.

The only stock they need is bump.

I can't wait for Trump to take credit for this.

That's why the drop wasn't 1500 points.

Thanks for reminding me I need to add yet another Blu-Ray to my Amazon wish list.

I was just thinking today that if I had a lot of disposable cash, a bunch of put options on the DOW index would be in order.

He'll just blame Obama and/or "the obstructionist Dems"

And it will work on 85% of the GOP.
