US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Does anyone really pay attention to the markets in the last week of the year as fund managers play for their bonus?

Massive drops are buying opportunities.
Sure. It was just that that list of accomplishments listed the stock market surge, when in reality the stock market has fallen in 2018.

The government shutdown and the attacks on the federal reserve are more likely what caused the recent dip.
Well the way the anti-Trump leftist media portrays things also does its damage.

(along with their goosestepping reefs)

I'm sure you would agree that all markets hang on human perception and emotion.

Fear vs greed amirite?

Well, psychology (including perception and emotion) is part of it, but actual figures (sales, market share, growth, demand) also play a part. Long term the hard figures matter more, short term emotions and herd mentality can warp the market quite a bit.

That's why stability and predictability are so important. They reduce the impact of the psychological factors.
And that's why the market reacted favourably to the democrats taking the house.

Many investors may prefer republican politics, but they value predictability even higher, and having all branches of government controlled by the same party increases the likelyhood of change.

I dunno Per, I figure the market is so overvalued that it's all about fear and greed at this point.

Beware the goosestepping fearmongerers...

Absolutely! Fear is divisive. Us vs them.
We don't need no freaking walls!
We just need compassion.
Glad we see eye to eye on this.
Cheers, mate! :drink:

I can’t wait to get back to work, my liver needs a long rest.

I had some hope for Trump but his obsession with himself has lead him astray. I do like what he has done to China, no other country scares me as much as them.

Anyways back to drinking 2 more days off then back to work.

Good stuff about Lying Donnie and the lies he tells.

Although, mind you, lying to the American people is apparently not a crime. Lying to congress though.....
