Investing Thoughts: Is the Trump Bubble About to Burst?




Trump mentioned many positive things his administration did, of which a major claim was the success of the stock market in 2017. But, in the week that he delivered his SOTU address, the stock market has actually been going downhill, on the Monday and Tuesday of this week, and again this morning to end the week.

Is the Trump bubble about to burst? Let’s all hope it just deflates a little bit.

Even the supposedly positive Jobs Report this morning claimed 200,000+ new jobs, but a consensus said many of those were temporary and part-time positions, which may or may not become permanent! (By the way, who tallies up jobs lost each month?)

If anything, we’ve reached a saturation level where the Trump hype cannot sustain stock market growth, and we are now seeing a vicious pullback because of it. And many investors have been buying into this hype, causing the stock market to get ahead of itself.

The bottom line is, the probability is high that we’ll be seeing some choppy waters ahead after Trump’s SOTU address, despite all the so-called positive hype, boastful achievements and exaggerated claims.

In a week in which we SHOULD’VE seen positive gains following the SOTU address, we are seeing quite the opposite. Whether this is a bad sign of things to come, or just a temporary slump, it hasn’t been a good week on Wall St.

So, why isn’t Trump TWEETING about all this?
