    Actually The stock market is a forward looking mechanism

    As soon as Dems lost power it started skyrocketing... Knowing good things are ahead and reckless socialism is behind us now... For awhile anyway until the lib media brainwashes enough of the gullible masses into believing this is all bad

    I'll stick with capitalism because I'm not stupid

    @FT,

    We can all have equality while in poverty. The cure for all disparity of wealth in this country. No more wealthy people.

    Trump's policies have not yet kicked in on the economy. There are no significant pieces of legislation. There is no Trump budget, not even a continuing resolution that reflects his policies. What we are seeing is mostly Obama and Federal Reserve policies at play. When Trump's policies kick in, and he has his own Fed Chair, then we will see.

    What goes up can also go down. While I have made a lot of money in the stock market the past 9 years, the majority of Americans have not. The disparity of wealth in this country will be a leading factor in our demise. A country divided cannot stand.

    Trump has done nothing to improve this economy.

    The fake news is trump taking credit for things he has nothing to do with.

    Trump should be so bold to describe what specific policy he enacted that translated into growth. He should specifically describe how this growth was result of something he did. Of course we will get a tweet with vague nonsense.

    Its very telling that almost nothing about this excellent economics achievement was mentioned by the mainstream media! Fake news anyone? I want to thank DN for posting this important story about President Trump's achievement! Nothing makes a President successful like prosperity and noting brings prosperity like a successful conservative President who understands econoimcs! If President Trump's successes continue, he will be hard to defeat for his second term!

    Barack Obama's hard work is paying off for the American people?

    Of course our economy is doing so well is because of President Trump's policies! The very reason people are buying stocks in all time record numbers and amounts is precisely because they are very optimistic about our future with President Trump's polices! That is the way it works! You invest your money where and when you believe it will grow the best for you! Imagine if the stock market and our economy was tanking, the left would be hyperventilating about how Trump is failing! Guess what? President Trump ain't failing and the Democrats are angry and so very disappointed about his successes! Thank you President Trump! God bless you!

    Trump has nothing to do with this story.
