    Oh, and the market is back up 505 today so far. Watch your Tweets. They don't age well.
    Except, net wage growth over inflation isn't. It's a tired argument, when you inherit a clunker and hand off reliable vehicle that it pretty good.

    Edit. The market went up 1,086 points today. That’s over ONE THOUSAND POINTS!!!
    And inflation is waaaaay under control. Do you care to know that the 2018 year to date inflation rate is 1.9%? In Obama’s last year it was 2.1%. Hence Trump’s frustration with the Fed. Why didn’t the raise the interest rate back then?
    Care to address the unemployment rate? Or more accurately- The FULL EMPLOYMENT rate? No?
    Didn’t think so. Tax cuts are working like a charm. Don’t be ridiculous.

    The real world definition of market volatility over two trading days.

    December 24 - largest ever drop on Christmas Eve and market hits correction territory.

    December 26 - largest ever one day gain and market leaves correction territory.

    That my friends is one wild ass ride over two days.

    Low inflation is not good in times of low employment and rising wages. The result is usually hyper inflation and I don't think anyone wants that. The way to ensure against hyper inflation in a low employment and rising wages is a measured increase in the low end of the yield curve, thus allowing equilibrium.

    Also, the Fed is paying down its balance sheet from all the quantitative easing it did during the Great Recessions. A measured increase in rates is essential to this effort.

    The key for me is buying decent dividend yielding stocks at good prices and living with the volatility. Good ones at the moment are Prudential, Intel, AT&T and Verizon. All are at decent current prices. Check a pricing chart of each and you'll see each has dropped, but not below prices of three years ago. By going after yield on strong stocks, one can be assured of a decent return on price, no matter where the price sits.
