Trump Drives HOG Out Of U.S.
23 days ago

Agreed.

The U.S. already has 12,000 tariffs in place on a variety of goods from numerous countries, so Trump's tariffs will be piled on top of those. American consumers will pay the price of a trade war, which will end up costing the U.S. far more than any minor benefits to its producers and manufacturers, inasmuch as these tariffs are paid to the government as taxes, not to U.S. companies. So any tax relief offered to Americans by the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will be offset by trade war taxes, including job losses.

And, why would he want to restrict the sale of U.S. products to world markets? It makes no sense!

Perhaps this summer will be better with a more fulsome support from the US and President Trump.

U.S. Major Indices Fail To Hold Onto Gains In 2018 Q1

Could be that the perception of its ties to customer data is weighing more negatively, at the moment, than on its other business pursuits...we'll see if that escalates or abates...either way, I think volatility will remain for awhile.

SPX 3000?
5 months ago

P.S. to my article above...

Alternatively, we may see a hit of 3000 (or beyond to its next major external Fibonacci level of 3047) at the +5 channel deviation level sometime in February, potentially taking the Dow 30 along with it to around 26,700 (as I described recently in my post of January 11). Subsequently, these indices may move sideways for awhile to allow some of this parabolic surge (that began after the November 2016 Presidential election) to dissipate.

Tech Sector Holds The Key

Yes...it's unclear to me at this point. Perhaps, barring any major geo-political (including domestic) upsets or oversees nuclear "mistakes" in the near future, we'll eventually see markets resume an uptrend after drifting in this range, or maybe a bit lower until the fall. Although, there's still the possibility that markets spike higher one last time before a (rumoured) June rate hike.

3 Trillion Dollars Now At Risk...And More
1 year ago

I, myself, wouldn't profess to speak on behalf of others' interests. I have a hard enough time keeping track of my own. :)

My article simply points out the fact that there is no evidence, thus far, that Republicans are willing to support and advance (by means of legislation) President Trump's ambitious agenda. We'll see what markets think of that (if this continues) over the coming days and weeks, and, more importantly, what voters think and want within the next 2 to 4 years.

(Safer for whom?) It is if you like gridlock...it's more important to ask affected voters what they think.
