I don't think this is an overreaction -- it's a market correction.  Stocks were too high.  The fundamentals don't justify it.  Better to let the air out before it pops.

When I say "overreaction," I don't mean the stock activity. I mean Ulysses.

And over 500 points for last five days...

Tired of toading yet?



Did big corporations run out of tax cut money for stock buybacks or something? Since they seemingly aren’t using that money to create new jobs or give current employees pay raises.

What's wrong with stock buybacks?

Looks to be related to concerns about trade with China and rising treasury yields. Higher rates signal a tightening of available capital.


And also:
Not just our stock market. It is happening in many countries. And Turkey has a lot to do with it.

They are trying to pull back the artificial stimulus as they have more than reached the goal of "full" employment.

The Fed has very limited tools with which to try to manipulate the economy. It will raise interest rates if inflation threatens. It will lower interest rates when inflation lowers to the point of deflation (as we almost encountered in 2008-9).

I remember the "stagflation" of the 1970's, where we enjoyed both very high interest rates and high inflation. It sucked. Causes may have included the costly Vietnam War, the Arab/OPEC oil embargo, etc. I remember when home mortgage rates were in the teens. Like 18%. As I recall, Carter's Fed applied the traditional fix for inflation by raising the interest rates. It took some time to take effect, and of course Reagan reaped the benefit when he succeeded Carter.
