Nothing to worry about though. The financial system self-regulates, the hedge funds and investment banks would never over-leverage, and commercial real estate's fundamentals are strong. It's not like brick-and-mortar retail has been/will be getting its dick kicked in by Amazon or any of that.



Seriously. Everything is totally fine, especially now that we have regulations in place to prevent another 2007 financial meltdown.

Regulations prevent the market from working as it should and create worse bubbles than the natural up and down cycles we're supposed to see in capitalism

Historically false, take a look at the economy during robber baron era.

It was booming and allowed the US to become the world power it became. Next.

Massive bust and boom cycles disproving your assertions, move the goal posts much?

The boom and bust cycles are no different than what we're seeing now, just that the busts are bigger

Boom and bust cycles are how things are supposed to work. Artifically staving off busts creates larger busts


My entire existence is a failed gotcha

^^^ That's the way I see it. Extend and pretend not only exacerbates the resulting excesses - in both directions - but it also adds the moral hazard factor which prompts all the other participants at all levels to engage in the same irresponsible manner - also compounding the effect.

Stop trying to control the economy via Central Planning.

yup. when '08 broke the American government bailed out wall street at the expense of America's future.

we received a credit fueled economic expansion that while long in duration has been anemic in upside.

the US govt. will never repay its debt in full. it does not have to. it will simply sell more treasuries.

average Americans though are up to their eyeballs in debt. consumers are tapped out.

and the Fed is left with its rate at 2.25% (after one cut already) when it was at 5.25% at the outset of the '08 easing cycle.

the only answer the Fed has is to cut rates but they're going to be at zero inside of a year if they enter a full rate cut cycle.

then what if we're in a recession or worse?

the answer is easy - we get to pay for wall street's sins in 2008 because wall street was never required to do so.

this is pitchforks in the street stuff.

trump watches the stock market religiously.

he fired off a bunch of tweets today an in attempt to prop the market.

market sold off on each tweet.

one tweet in particular referred to yield curve inversion and evidences that trump was ZERO concept as to what a yield curve is let alone what an inversion means or its implications for the economy.

guy is a straight up idiot.

Not only and idiot but straight up senile, I saw a little bit of him ranting incoherently at his latest rally.

was watching Fox Business at launch to get their spin on it. Complete Cheeto Propaganda. It was a "blame game" for them and the fed was their target just like Cheeto's tweet. corporate warning about tariff impacts in quarterly earnings call to them was "excuses"

The Fed gave Trump his rally; the market will take it away.

Fed will enter damage control mode at next meeting September.

I'm not sure there is really much Fed can do at this point.

The charade is collapsing under its own weight.

This isn't good, but this isn't a lock either.

Not every inverted yield curve has resulted in a recession/bear market.

I believe Berkshire Hathaway is HEAVILY invested in bank stocks still. So Warren Buffet is betting this isn't over yet.

At best I anticipate whippy action through to the fall with a buyable dip.

But then I have a ten year outlook.

If Trump would just shut the fvck up for awhile things would be easier.

fair points GWS

this market has recovered from and rallied back above way worse than what happened today.

as long as S&P doesn't break December '18 low hope remains; still well above that level but small caps and financials have been underperforming the S&P for months now. that's not good.

remember when Trumby promised 4-5% annual GDP growth?
