I'd say pretty well if N Korea is forced to launch missles at China's behest.

China played the delay game and now faces increased tariffs.

One of my buddies, who has been doing business in China for almost 20 years, doesn't have any complaints. Another is looking to get a product made there.

The stock market rises on hope....Trump is crushing all the hope. He doesn't have an IRA or 401K. Why should he give a fuck?

I enjoy seeing people who criticized Trump for trashing the TPP also criticizing him about trade negotiations with China

TPP - we lose no matter what

Trade negotiations with China (with tariff lever) - maybe we lose

The document was riddled with reversals by China that undermined core U.S. demands, the sources told Reuters.

In each of the seven chapters of the draft trade deal, China had deleted its commitments to change laws to resolve core complaints that caused the United States to launch a trade war: Theft of U.S. intellectual property and trade secrets; forced technology transfers; competition policy; access to financial services; and currency manipulation.
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa- ... SKCN1SE0WJ

So China does what China does and Trump lives up to his end of the bargain and hammers them with the additional tariffs. The plot thickens.

Send the little cockroaches in their Mao Jackets home. You can’t trust the Red Chinese. And that’s from Reuters, a news source that even StWronge would trust.

Trump will punish his #Deplorables (and the rest of us) with higher tariffs. He ain't beating the Chinese. :thumb: He will cause us pain and in 2 years it will be someone else's mess to clean up.

We are already there - and have been for 20 years. We are just in the thrashing around stage now

But if you think Chinese trade hegemony and the eventual shift to world trade in the Yuan are somehow not inevitable ... I have a 7 Gorges Dam to sell you

Already pointing fingers

On Jan. 23, 2009 when Obama took office.....the Dow stood at 8077. When he left office it was 19827 on Jan.20, 2017. That's +11750 (+168%).

When Trump took office on Jan.20, 2017 the Dow stood at 19827. It now stands at 25967. That's +6140 (+31%)

You must be one of those horrible emotional investors if you didn't get higher returns from 2009-2017. :thumb:

By putting it all in cash, you mean letting the financial advisor run your 401, then yes, I am guilty.
