This stock market could up-end Joe's chances. What do you think?

I'm not that greedy of a person, but I'm personally up HUGE, and historically speaking that's good for the incumbent any way you want to look at it.

by Anonymousreply 58Last Monday at 5:52 AM

You're not up HUGE; no one is. You're up slightly from where you were before the market plunged starting back in February.

Historically speaking, the market goes up after an election, so you can take your MAGA ass the hell out of here, you fucking idiot.

It could, but I don't think so.

R2 There's a difference between "facts" and "a different take on things." OP's a dipshit.

This election is about so much more than the stock market. Some 62 percent of the country thinks we’re on the wrong track. They’re not going to be voting for more of the same.

Look at the news from this week. People have been waiting in long lines for up to 12 hours to vote. You don’t do that if you are happy with the status quo.

The stock market is a house of cards being propped up with fake money, fake just like everything else about dirtball scumbag Trump and his extended family. It will all come crashing down in due course.

I'd get out while the goings good, OP. I'd hate to see anyone take a bath, even a concern troll like you.

The current stock market rise is the equivalent of receiving a credit card with a high limit and believing you are rich and then going on a spending spree and then one day you max out the credit limit and have no money to pay it back....

Really ridiculous post OP. You’re exactly where you were six months ago. Think of where you’d be if Dump had only told people to wear masks.

[QUOTE] You're not up HUGE; no one is. You're up slightly from where you were before the market plunged starting back in February.

I'm up 12.5% YTD, which may or may not be huge, but for me, it's pretty good.

No way would I vote Republican. I'm looking at things long term (20 years) and historically, markets have done better under Democrats than under Republicans. Plus, Republicans stand for everything I'm against. In 45 years I've never voted for a Republican.

If it would guarantee a Biden win, I'd take another 20% hit to my portfolio, as I did in March, because while markets recover, our Democracy may not,

I beg to differ with r1. My stocks are all great companies that are making money and paying dividends at least 2X what banks or MMF's pay. Companies some of you have never heard of that make real money and pay nice dividend and reasonable P/E's. Life goes on outside the bubble - Believe it, or not.

I would also point out that you haven’t made anything until you sell. Profits on paper aren’t real profits.

Goldman Sachs says that a blue wave could have a net positive effect on markets. Remember, markets hate uncertainty and chaos. How much upward stock activity has Trump left on the table with bullshit comments causing huge swings in the markets every three weeks?

Some last minute ads touting that possibility might be appropriate.

[quote] How much upward stock activity has Trump left on the table with bullshit comments causing huge swings in the markets every three weeks?

I am firmly convinced he (or people in his inner circle) knew in advance of his idiotic tweets and shorted the market before he would let loose with something destined to drive the market down.

The Times report this past Wednesday that members of his economic team were advising their rich friends that the pandemic was going to be worse than the administration was saying publicly is just the tip of the iceberg

[quote] The consultant’s assessment quickly spread through parts of the investment world. U.S. stocks were already spiraling because of a warning from a federal public health official that the virus was likely to spread, but traders spotted the immediate significance: The president’s aides appeared to be giving wealthy party donors an early warning of a potentially impactful contagion at a time when Mr. Trump was publicly insisting that the threat was nonexistent.

Oh my... ...decisions, decisions. Scratching my head over for whom I should cast my ballot: On one hand, we have a candidate (from the #PartyofDeath) who is endorsed by the Taliban, the KKK, and other domestic terrorist clubs. The other candidate is endorsed by a broad bipartisan coalition and the New England Journal of Medicine. Any recommendations?

The market is propped up by cheap money. Wall Street is salivating over the next stimulus that will be passed by the Biden Administration with the help of a Democratic Senate. Some corporate executives realize most people need more money to spend to boost corporate profits. Trump is too unstable for the market's health.

Everyone needs to do what they think is best with their investments, based on their sense of what will happen in the future. For me, I think the economy and the market will go down and I have sold a lot of my equities during the recent high points. I’m willing to sit back and wait to see what happens. When the markets fall sufficiently, I’ll get back in.

I stood in line for 7 hours to vote. I don't have any stocks or investments. We were able to stand in line for hours because most of us are out of work. The stock market doesn't mean anything to most people. The % of people with investments who make that their defining issue are probably hard core Republicans anyway.

I don’t care if Joe Biden crashes the stock market to the point where we end up with a 100% unemployment rate and everybody ends up living in housing projects. Work is slavery, and it’s time to amend the constitution to that end.

We need communism and we need it now. If it takes a Joe Biden to get us there, then so fucking be it.

Nope. 25 million people have already voted. By Election Day, the vast majority of people will have voted. There’s only something like 4% undecideds at this point. It’s over for Trump.

by Anonymousreply 31Last Friday at 7:52 AM

Nope. The market has already prepared for Trump to lose and for Biden to win. The ups and downs do not influence voters, most of whom don’t own stocks.

I don't know anybody with a brain who trusts this market. It's an illusion. The smart money knows that. You can't take the value of the market at face value, you have to look at how the big money is trying to game it. And that's before you look at the algorithms. There's no support deal from Washington coming any time soon. What does that do to employment? And that's what people shop on and pay mortgages on and buy houses on. Does anyone really believe the economy - which drives the markets - is on stable footing?

by Anonymousreply 33Last Friday at 7:56 AM

Who cares now? The government will swoop in and prop up the market every other day and we all get rich.

The stock market and unemployment, healthcare oh and a global pandemic have little to do with each other. Do you know why the stock market is up? Because Biden is going to win. Check your history. The longest two economic gains in the past 30 years have been under two Democrats - Clinton and Obama.

Only idiots like Trump believe the economy can boom by ignoring the pandemic.

by Anonymousreply 55Last Saturday at 7:45 PM

R55, exactly. If we didn’t have lockdown orders, we’ll simply see people refusing to patronize certain businesses anyway, out of fear of being infected. But it wouldn’t be orderly. It would be panicky and unpredictable.

by Anonymousreply 56Last Saturday at 11:59 PM

Everything depends on a vaccine, and if the disease follows its predicted behavior of sticking around and killing millions.

It seems unlikely that a vaccine with be developed and distributed for at least another year. And that the virus will remain festering in the populous until at least 50% are infected. It’s a freight train that even the Fed can’t stop. Eventually, the market will crash. We’ll also see political/social upheaval worldwide. People hate being unemployed. If two percent die, we’ll have 2% excess industrial capacity. 2% excess housing stock. 2% excess service providers and consumer goods. In the US, with its tradition of immigration, we might more quickly absorb all that excess capacity,, but it might not be politically feasible.

It’s entirely unpredictable. Joe needs to do a good job setting expectations that this is not something that can be fixed in 4 years. If he doesn’t do so, the Dems risk a backlash in 2024, for not doing the impossible. That’s a fear of mine, but it’s in the back burner as I enjoy the expected Biden win in a few weeks.

But with, or without a lockdown order, people withdraw from social gatherings as the virus spreads and everyone finds that they have family and friends effected. Or they get infected’ themselves.
