Anthony there is live after losing your gain , I see you teaching 6th grade math , there may be some entitlement there for you if you live that long.
I tend to agree with this genaral assessment. My guess is that Quantitative Easing will ultimately fail to keep the market alive and kicking. The Federal Government has been printing approximately eighty-five billion dollars per month and pumping it into the stock market to keep stocks moving upward. This is an unprecedented manipulation of the market and shows us all that the Feds have not learned the lesson of the housing crisis. Although it can be argued reasonably that many profited unconscionably from governmental policy, the housing crisis started because the government forced lenders to find ways to lend mortgage money to hopelessly unqualified buyers. How lenders, real estate brokers, and mortgage brokers responded to this pressure was unfortunate and in many cases unethical, but it never could have happened in the first place if Janet Reno hadn't threatened legal action against lenders in the first place unless the mortgage loans were made.
The unlitmate result of relaxed rules of qualification and desktop underwriting (invented by Franklin Raines, then head of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) created an imbalance in the market and overinflated demand. Prices shot up like crazy until the bubble burst.
Now the government is artificially propping up the demand side of the ledger in the stock market and forcing prices up by buying into the market with this procedure of Quantitative Easing. Companies that are losing money or whose earnings look anemic are actually seeing their stock values rise in a process that defies logic and reason. Once again, the Feds have put their thumb on the scale, creating artificially inflated values. Crunch time is coming and results cannot be pretty. Particularly when an activist presidency seeks to make free enterprise and capitalism evil ideals that do not properly distribute equitably those goods and services produced in the country. A ludicrous notion to put forth in a country that has done such things more successfully than any in history.
The market over reacts to every emotional whim of investors. Buy a real company that has a good product/service and is well managed. buy it at a good price and you will be fine.
capitalize on market emotions and manipulations and you are rich. Rosevelt had a saying be weary when everyone thinks things are cheery (the housing and banking bubbles), and be agressive with others are scared. if the market crashed go all in like you should have the days after 9-11. and then you we become very rich my friend.
The power of God is the power of His love,as on the Cross of Jesus Christ,the power of money is in the love of money,and the love of money is the root of all evil says,1Timothy6:10.No one chooses to be poor.When you have plenty of money you have the power to influence people,and the power to just about live anywhere you want,while the lack of money,poverty makes you more vulnerable,especially in wars--that's why Jesus says he came to preach his Gospel to the poor.And Jesus says in his Revelation,chapter 13,that the mark of the beast 666, is buying and selling,making money,loving it,and loving the power it gives you.And with wealth you're not as vulnerable in wars,so as Revelation 13:4,says,who is able to make war with him? the beast 666.So the mark of the beast 666,the antichrist,is loving money,and making war.And so Jesus says he fulfills all the prophets,and the prophet Isaiah,and Isaiah2:4,God ends all wars,beating swords to plowshares,and man practicing war no more.
