Analysts are such tools.

Stocks are getting slammed on US-China trade-war fears, with one analyst wondering if Trump 'is playing us'.

"One cannot but sense that Mr. Trump is playing us a little," said Neil Wilson, the chief market analyst for Markets.com. "He may well be making a deal seem further away in order to make the achievement seem all the more impressive when it comes."

If our own stock market didn't take this that seriously - why would China take it seriously? I mean, I know the PPT is mostly in control, but China is not going to cave until there is a lot more pain. Why would they? The market is still pretty close to an all time high.

I'm not even sure how I feel about this whole tariff thing. A tax is a tax. But if I'm looking at our stock market, 500 points isn't going to cut it.

  1. Tariffs Baby.
    It's time for America to break out the hammer and tell them we are not going to take it up the rear.
    Kiss or no kiss.
