White House downplays worries about
stock market plunge, says ´the fundamentals
of this economy are very strong´

Business Insider, by Bob Bryan

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/5/2018 4:43:20 PM

White House officials are downplaying the recent chaos in the stock market, saying its a short-term wobble and the US economy remains resilient. "Look, markets do fluctuate in the short term," said White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah. "We all know that. And they do that for number of reasons. But the fundamentals of this economy are very strong and they´re headed in the right direction — for the middle class, in particular." (Snip) "It´s still in a very strong place, it´s still exorbitantly higher than it was when he took office," Gidley said. The Dow closed at 18,589.69 on November 9, 2016, meaning the index is still up

My dad was always of the opinion that periodically the movers of the market come to shear the sheep. Kind of a contradiction that good economic reports drove a market contraction.

Yes, the tax cut will mean businesses will doo much better. So, let it ride, better, if you have a cash position, start dollar cost averaging it into the market, good time to buy, but in increments is more cost effective in most cases.

Up 8,000 in a year, then down 1,000. I see up 7,000. And frankly if it goes down another 2,000 and stays for a year, it is still a good run, plus a chance for younger folks to climb on at a bit lower level.

Somewhere I heard if you invested on the highest day of the market every year, you´d still be ahead over the long term.

The "forget about it" investment strategy I´ve had for about 10 years has done pretty well. It´s when I kept trading I lost my shirt.

Yes, the fundamentals of the economy are strong, but the stock market - now a separate affair - is a huge bubble and a Ponzi scheme, pumped up by buying stocks with interest-free money. It´s called financial engineering. The stock market no longer rises and fall just because of the economy. It rises because it´s goosed with free stock-purchasing money. Look out!

What goes up in the market must come down, that is just common sense, and when the market is down it is the time that smart investors buy stocks. The market will always have corrections that that’s what happening now. Anyone who can’t stand the ups and the downs in the market should not have their money in that big gamble.

Dittos, #10. Before my dear one died, he gave to me all of his world goods and a great financial adviser to go with it. My ´´money guy´´ said it is fun to watch folks get their knickers in a twist, but that his plan is to watch carefully. Also he said that as quickly as the ´´market´´ rises, it will dip down some to even out the tide.

Lucky for me, I had never invested in even a safety pin. Now the adviser ´´consults´´ with me before making any move (which he has carefully explained to me). Must agree with you and Trump that fundamentals are very strong. The strongest in a long, long time.

1. It´s getting late: The recovery from the Great Recession is already one of the longest economic expansions in American history. And recently the economic cycle has gone from humming along to booming. Unemployment is down to a 17-year low, small business sentiment is roaring, and economic growth hit the 3% mark twice last year. But economic expansions don´t last forever. A recession comes along eventually and ruins the party. Wall Street is already pondering the demise of this recovery, which in May would become the second-longest in history. Most economists and investors believe the U.S. economy is either in

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

President Donald Trump urged the FBI to “get back to the basics” Saturday night after an embarrassing series of mistakes in connection with the Parkland, Fla., massacre. “Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter,” the president tweeted late Saturday. “This is not acceptable.” The president then asserted that the agency was perhaps distracted by the investigation into possible Trump administration ties to Russia. “They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign,” the president wrote. “There is no collusion.

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides. (Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump. One possibility that Biden´s longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats

WASHINGTON – It turns out Donald Trump wasn’t the only candidate the Russians allegedly tried to help during the 2016 presidential campaign. A 37-page indictment resulting from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation shows that Russian nationals and businesses also worked to boost the campaigns of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Green party nominee Jill Stein in an effort to damage Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Russians “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump,” according to the

There are currently roughly 500 Winn-Dixie locations in the Southeastern part of the US, primarily in Florida. Amazon´s acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017 has served as a major shake-up

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock.
