Well, much different than my usual predictions during 8 dismal Obama years, one of my beliefs is in major numbers in the DOW and other places indicating we are in for a Bull Market in 2017.

Making a mental note that the DOW just broke 20,000 (for the first time ever)  - that was my threshold personally to indicate we are on the way up.

Ironically look at the world markets -

Germany DAX

+1.76% 11,799.44 +208.11


comment: What means this?  It could be translated things will not be business as usual and often times what we need more than anything else is Change.

The trade situation for the U.S. during the last decade could be expressed in rather basic terms - "It sucked"

We were looking at massive trade deficits with money, jobs, and even building factories outside the U.S. at an all time high.  Our labor market was being gutted by incentives to promote warm fuzzy feelings with trade partners which were trashing the American manufacturing market and allowing companies to outsource labor and jobs.

The Trump Effect - well - basically - as of today many entrenched powerful things are being challenged and the way it was - "It is over"

Am I glad to get off the soap box with my placard "The End is Near" finally? I am. I want things to be better. I want an American Renaissance - a rise of the middle class - more jobs and what we have not had for years - HOPE.

Can we dare to dream? 

I am. You know - what you picture as the future - has a lot to do with what happens in your future and a nation.  When people in America start envisioning success and a booming economy- we are on the verge of it happening.

Why not? It's about friggin' time.

big deal
when Obama took office the stock market was less than 8,000
when he left it was 19,000
when Obama took office the economy was losing HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of jobs EVERY month
yeah
remember those days
all things considered
Obama didn't do too bad considering what he got handed

and the Obama years weren't bad for everyone
they were QUITE GOOD for me
best years ever

FOURTH TUNING  -read it
it will save you a lot of heartache and financial mistakes

Intelligence is the ability to adapt to change. Hawking
to recognize that you need to adapt
you first have to recognize that change has occurred
VERY few people have realized that WE ARE NOT GOING BACK TO THE GOOD OLD DAYS

recognize
adapt and thrive
or
die

We were just shy of 20,000 before Obama left office. I think celebrating a slight uptick less than a week into a new administration is a little premature.
