Tariff relief rally? Never mind, that was 2 days ago. Now it's a tariff decline.

Sounds like Inversion yield is driving the bus and tariff issues are sitting in the front seat.

I expect it will be less than exciting if/when it hits. What an anticlimax. "The market dropped a billion percent? Ho hum, no big deal."
One billion percent? Is that not excessive?

I thought just one hundred percent is enough to send us competing for a space under the highway overpasses.

I know I'm picking the good part out from all the bad, but:

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/06/busin...war/index.html

"China's Commerce Ministry said Thursday it was confident a trade agreement with the United States could still be reached in time to hit a 90-day deadline set by President Donald Trump."

On the whole, I'm optimistic.

Not me! I am happy with my SS and "diet COLA" mini-pension, and could probably outlast any market crash just on that income as long as inflation doesn't get too bad.

If inflation hits hard or SS gets cut back at the same time as the market crash, then move over, I'll be there under the highway overpass with everybody else.

OMG, I just peeked and the Dow is down ANOTHER 500 already today. Here we go....

So sorry to read this, and I hope those affected at medium corps will be OK.

I have no idea but I wonder if it might be time for retirees to "batten down the hatches", as the saying goes. We might be in for quite a ride.

As for the pheasants and peasants, I hope they all get through this ok too....

At least not yet....

One advantage to a 2008-2009 style crash, is that it is a great check on one's AA. If one can deal with a big crash like that without too much angst, then the AA is great. Or at least that's the way I see it.

Oh, and also we haven't yet started to hear the multitude of financial gurus proclaiming that "This time it's different!"

To me that's a good signal that this time, it's exactly the same....

Yeah, that news is a little frightening. Things could go off the rails in a hurry if China chooses an escalating response.
