Well, looks like the Obama market has finally ended and we are now seeing the market's reaction to the Trump administration.

Raymond James is making money on fees by all those selling stock. Good to sit tight . The 10 % I cashed in  more than covered the commission and happy for the profit.

I know you will do what you will do. But pulling funds now is not well advised. I spoke with my financial consultant (Raymond James) this morning, and he said we are in the middle of a market correction, and feels that within two weeks the market will restabilize.

 

 He also called to my attention that the market is still up 2% for the year. This correction has been a long time in coming – – there has been a bubble, which anyone who is been paying attention has noted, and with a little bit of inflation thrown in, Wall Street reacts.

 

What I plan to do is move my investments from medium to low risk. 

Good luck to you with whatever path you choose to take.

 

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

Market experts are rethinking Trump's policies and the future damage !---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Future damage?? All those with new jobs and more money in their pocket probably won`t agree. The markets don`t affect that part of the economy.

Not well advised. Called my very reputable broker today who said we are in the middle of predicted correction—his advice—sit tight!

The market has been due for a correction. It happens about once every 10 years. There has been a bubble there which has been apparent to many, and a correction is necessary.  Overall, the market is still up 2% for this year, and that’s pretty good. 

 What I intend to do is have my financial consultant move my invest notes from medium risk to low-risk. 

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!
