Trump's influence on the stock market is scary.

Tweet that talks with China have stalled? Dow drops 300 points immediately.

Trump says later that same day that trade talks are back in? Dow jumps 500 points.

How fragile is the market when one sentence uttered by someone can cause jumps of hundreds of points?

1. And who's profiting on those utterances? Anyone think for ONE SECOND he and his cronies

are not doing EXACTLY THAT?

YOU KNOW THEY ARE!?!

2. How many of us believe that trump is morally upstanding enough to not try to take advantage of this?

3. And that is why I have been keeping my money....

out for the time being.
What little money I had in IRA's is still invested but I sold a property at the end of 2017 and kept that sizable chunk out for now.

4. On the other side of that 'coin', trump does stupid stuff that obviously hurts the

economy, [scuttling Trans Pacific, etc.], and the markets seem unimpressed.

5. What's scary is they *want* this, they want one man to tell them what to do

Shows how meaningless the stock market is.
