Skip to comments.The Stock Market - What the Heck?
Posted on 02/08/2018 2:12:16 PM PST by CincyRichieRich
I'm an investor, and like most here, overwhelmed with the sources to read, the Q Anon stuff, the stimuli, the conspiracies...and now, a few days of stock market drops - including today's 1000 pt drop. I'd like to discuss with anyone who will participate, as to causes, where from here, etc.
Powell seems to be MIA - he is the new Fed Chair...he should grab a microphone and make himself known and be a somewhat calming force.
Cramer, the idiot, blames solely new investors - what a kook and a tool.
Deep State is truly working with the Soroses, Rothchild types and will continue to wreak havoc around Trump's tax cut timing...I see this continuing for a while.
Any thoughts out there and how to stop it?
No that covers it
My stock dropped 2 points...not 1000 points....It’ll come back easily.
Obama’s little Janet Yellen is no longer around to pump Billions of Dollars a month into it
Apple being investigated over slowing Iphones started some of this.
I suspect that some of the parties buying stocks to keep the prices up under Obama are selling them now to drop the market after the tax cuts passed.
2) Funds and traders are causing volatility as they always do. Some have been warning about a correction for months.
3) Fear of high interest rates makes equities less attractive.
4) There will be short spurts of buying, and more will get out then.
I don’t know the reason, but it has been a very, very painful week financially.
Nervous baby boomers
Ask not what makes the market move. Ask whether you are flexible enough to trade in the same direction the market wants to move.
Deficit spending is nothing but bad news.
many people like me have upped their 401 contributions to try to have lower incomes to report when 2018 taxes are due...
As someone said of another market dive, “If this is a correction, it must have been a hell of a problem.”
As for me, it macht nichts. My required annual IRA withdrawal isn’t until November, and I have no need to tap into it otherwise. By then, this will be in the rear view mirror.
It’s George Soros and his kind attacking our President.

I posted this on another thread:
...Stock tip 101 - you can lose money as easily as you gain money. Be prepared for both....
Exactly. Ive been an investor for many years and have always kept that philosophy
in mind. Its gonna close down probably well over 1000+ today. I will lose...again. Its money that I dont immediately need and it will turn back around eventually.
I never believed in the market being able to be manipulated, but one cant help but wonder when one looks at it today and in light of their Royal thighness and their blessed Holy Anointed One now being exposed as accomplices and participants to this dossier BS. Perhaps, Deep State and billionaires libs were possibly called upon to distract from it anyway they can? Dunno. However, IF its manipulated, those involved need to be drawn & quartered, and their pieces dragged thru the streets for dogs and rats to feed on.
Best analysis I’ve seen so far:
... im Having a tinfoil hat theory. Donald and Republicans coming up in polls. The swamp hasnt been able to destroy him with Russia Russia, the economy is their next weaponized weapon to use on him so like bingo market down, down, crash it and blame the Rs and Donald. This cant be about interest rates because the economy can easily handle an increase. Who rolls big, big money all over the globe destroying economies in its wake...?
