All 3 market indexes finished 2018 in the red.

It won't take too many more trading sessions like those, and the Dow will have given up all it's gained this year.

 

 


 

What about the Dow being up about 7K since Trump's inauguration.


Starting with Trump’s inauguration, the Dow has risen from 19,827.3 to 25,075.1 -- an increase of 26 percent. That’s impressive.

 

But it’s not as impressive as its performance during the equivalent period under Obama. Under Obama, the Dow increased from 7,949.1 to 10,572 — a rise of 33 percent.

 

In fact, the Dow’s rise was even more impressive under Obama if you start measuring at the market’s low point, on March 9, 2009, during the depths of the Great Recession. That day, the Dow closed at 6,547. Between then and Jan. 5 — a 10-month period — the Dow rose by a stunning 61 percent.

 

That’s more than three times faster than Trump’s rise over the same period in his term.

Markets tend to self adjust. So, when very low their natural movement is up - that has nothing to do with who is in office or what they do. Mostly the feds can only harm the markets with regulations for example. Obama's increases came from artificial means QE and artificially low interest rates for example and then he left his successor to deal with it.

 

Yes, Obama came on board to a very damaged economy and he presided over an improvement. Then came the "new normal" which Trump resisted with positive effects. 

 

It is not necessary to bad mouth Trump no matter what he does - or maybe it is to the hate-filled.

That doesn't count since the Dow moved upward. Only down times are reported by the left.

What happened?

 

Well First - Donald Trump is the US President & Like Every Dictator in History - He Has No Idea What He's doing 

 

Second - Trump is trying to Start a War with Iran to save his Presidency - that creates Volatility in Global Markets

 

Third - Trump won't Release is Tax Returns so he's going to Jail

 

Fourth - Trump Won't Release the Unredacted Mueller Report - Going to Jail Some More

 

Fifth - Trumps AG Barr is going to be Impeached and He's Going to Jail Too

 

President Donald Trump on Sunday threatened more tariffs on Chinese imports. That initially dragged markets way down on Monday. But investors had second thoughts, choosing to believe Trump's comments were more bark than bite. The Dow closed Monday down just 66 points.
 
But after the market closed, US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin doubled down on the tariff threat, telling the press Trump is serious — and the new import penalties will be imposed Friday.
 
So the market freaked out all over again Tuesday, falling steadily throughout the day.
 
 
Yet all that colorful wandering overlooks the reality of the Dow being up about 7K from Trump's inauguration.
