Now that your all into bonds 😎
Yeah, terrible time to be buying bonds now that the rush has started. When you arrive late the good stuff is gone. Luckily I bought mine back in Oct before the rush and as I'm sure you know the yield is locked once its purchase. I'm 3.2% through early Jan after claiming a 10% return from the equities I traded for them. Buy then another rate increase will likely have hit, the china tariffs will likely jump to 25%, and the Q4 reports will be coming out with likely bad news about growth outlooks....and it will be time to move back to stocks. Sometimes hunches work out.

Trump has some kind of deal this weekend at the G20 with China.

He is delaying the second phase of tariffs slated for Jan 2019 for 90 days until more negotiations take place...oh jeeeez, the markets gonna love this on Monday morning...would hate to be stuck in bonds at this time

He signed the USMCA deal this weekend and is making deals with china who said they will buy more USA made products

Winning.... a leftist nightmare

Yes he does. The stock market is up on the anticipation. It looks like a deal has been reached on the US auto tariffs with China. GO TRUMP GO

I live it when you predict things trump will do..because within a day or so, the opposite happens. he just announced the 25% tariffs slated for January 2019 will be delayed at least 3 months...

Yes, he is working with China on trade and it looks like a lot of progress is being made. I give a lot of kudos to President Trump for trying to level the trade playing field for American products. GO TRUMP GO However the lefties on this forum are saddened by the good news.

No deal has been reached other than to delay the tariff hikes by 90 days.

The market will bump for sure on the news and well see a rally of 500+ points. The the corporate black periods will start an d it will go flat, then the Q4 reports will bring more growth warnings and it give the rally back...most likely.

I m a little sad that thectariffscwere delayed since 5hat means I'll probably be un the market when they hit....oh well.

The bulk of the comments in this thread seems to be the parroting of another impending apocalyptic financial crisis borne out by Anti-Trump media bias.

I find it important to refresh the memories of those who've forgotten that the media's prescience of the last financial calamity could be described as nothing more than deafening silence (with the exception of a handful of kooks).

It was only until AFTER the fecal matter came in contact with the radial air movement device did we hear about it...
