The very idiots who voted for him are going to get screwed - higher taxes (border adjustment) on imports, reduced personal tax allowances (?), gutted pseudo-healthcare, semi-privatised state level medicare/medicaid, useless school vouchers that won't cover their school fees, and perhaps a war or two for their children to fight.

SAD!
Interesting. How are the majority of the population who voted otherwise not going to get screwed?

Indeed Diane.

Unfortunately all lower income people will get screwed. The richer asset holders will benefit from the tax cuts and other policies.

It's just ironic that many of the lower income voters who fell for the rhetoric  will get the negative impact of the policies that will increase prices and gut social services.

I'll keep making 10%+ compound interest while people hold cash trying to time the next crash. Then when we all recover I will still likely be ahead of most people. Except the one lucky son of a bitch who wins the lotto and successfully times the next crash.

So with the recent snafu caused by Trumps immigration ban the S&P + stocks are all down over 20points. I like a good sale especially with the markets riding high. How much and for how long do you think the markets will suffer. When will you be contributing? I have cash ready to go for more FSTVX (Fidelity Total)

So far it's looking like the Great Not Crash of 2017 so far.

Well, looking at the trend, looks like they are lower than they will be next week, which is lower than they will be the week after. Does this count?
