I see a crazy video got deleted I woke up to while auto-streaming on YouTube last night or this morning early and it was to put in perspective how the "owners" of the world will get you to believe in a new trend, further twisting or using climate change & to take your money and another way they seem to be acclimating people into a Fed being shrunk to only allow banks to lend what they have & cause a run on the banks?

Is it just me or do you see this trend in markets, but while I believe in being fiscally responsible and being respectful of the environment too, people must realize it will be a new bubble & agenda to be exploited in order to profit & not necessarily to protect the environment & it will be used to get people to do things in order too behave badly & so they can punish you more?

I think that this type of stuff will indeed effect Markets and the Economy as a whole......


Now this got my attention today......

Fed's Jerome Powell rejects Ocasio-Cortez’s floated theory about government debt[/h]
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says the concept of modern monetary theory is “just wrong.”

It depends what you intend to accomplish. If you'd like to destroy a country's currency, MMT will likely do that even more quickly than the central bank policies of the last ~50 years.

[h=1]Fed: Q4 sees largest drop in household net worth since financial crisis[/h]
"Household Net Worth" presumably includes people's 401ks and IRAs, right?

If so, it's no surprise that household net worth dropped by a few percent, given the turmoil in the equities markets in Q4.

Traditional retail strikes me as akin to the buggy whip industry 100 years ago. I can't remember the last time either my wife or I went to a mall. That doesn't mean we don't buy things; we do, but we do so differently than we did 10+ years ago.

Today is March 9th. This was a very important day in history exactly 10 years ago.

Does anyone remember why?

The day stocks reached their lowest point with the S&P reaching 666?
Exactly!

And within a few weeks of that, market sentiment changed dramatically.

Does anyone recall why?

Because they thought that was the new floor and to buy?

Do you think we hit such a new floor?

IDK I think things are only starting to show the actual weakness to come but than again it could go nuts if the right stars align.

Tax season is a real loser this year for the wave of refunds that usually bring to the economy, so me personally I think it goes much lower with gluts of inventory to be slashed & unleashed!

Oddly enough. It hasn't yet. Major indexes are up this morning.
Interesting, because Boeing is down ~7% on the news of the Ethiopian Airlines crash , and I would expect it to have a big influence on the price-weighted DOW average of only 30 stocks.

Two newly delivered 737 Max crashing in a very similar stage into the flight - some reports suggest that the anti-stall software is over intrusive causing the nose to keep being pushed down to lose altitude and (re)gain speed.

Sounds like some serious software investigation is needed ...

Really glad that my next flight to the US in May won't be on a Boeing 737 Max ;)
