    There’s no trade deal till it’s on paper signed! Trump has lied over an over to America from North Korea, to Mexico paying for the wall, easy healthcare, to this trade deal with China.

    The consumer is the ghost of Christmas past. The Fed is the ghost of Christmas present and future. Stock market couldn't survive a day without Fed repo bailouts.

    The stock market isn’t gonna go down because of what these guys said it’s gonna go down because something bad gonna happen outside of U.S plus the FED’s been banking off of shorting people since 2008. There is no debt people what everyone knows and talk about is not a problem. And the fed will rape more short sellers to pay off their debt.

    Like Tim said, the market has rallied since the beginning of October in anticipation of this deal. The market does not run up in a straight line on was pricing in this "great deal". Then China came out and said "hey we expect tariffs to not be implemented" and we ran pricing that in. The fact remains that this market is not accounting for any risk when in one tweet or announcement tariffs go right back on the table and the whole deal is off the table. I find it extremely strange that the traders on the desk are acting like those weekly jobless claims and consumer spending miss are no big deal. Did the analysts not remember the holiday since that is an excuse? The data accounts for Black Friday and that Saturday so it surely accounts for the bulk of the shopping and to miss by that much? This "strong consumer" economy is about tapped out. Unemployment at 50 year lows? I can pull up charts that show that when we reach this zone a recession soon follows. What about all that FED repo money? The writing is all over the wall, but some bulls apparently want to put their heads in the sand.

    “Clarity on rates from the Fed”
    Is this the same sort of clarity as last year when 2019 was going to be on “autopilot”, to quote Powell, for as many as four rate HIKES? How’d that work out?

      Agreed. Powell bounces around with the winds of the market. There is no overarching plan.

    Some President Trump advisor is mis-leading, giving priority to personal ideology bias. China has generated 300 million Middle Class in a decade. In US, top 1% owns 50% of assets, and Middle Class has disappeared. President Trump should challenge for Revival of Middle Class to US. I think he can !

    A bunch of screaming talking heads. Tim waits for a chance to speak and can never get a decent word in without being interrupted.
