Only guessing 😎 (SP500 daily)

"The 66-year-old Fed boss has a losing record on Wall Street as it pertains to the market’s reaction to Fed’s statements and his words. He has had two winning days out of the past 11 meetings, with the only positive gains for the market coming in January when policy makers paused a string of rate increases,"

"The two words from Jerome Powell that rocked the financial markets"

yes it was comical, having previously admitted that the Fed had hiked too often too fast said today that this cut was just 'a mid cycle adjustment' and thereby implying that the Fed would soon be back to rate hikes too often too fast, just left everyone dumbfounded. He tried desperately to back track but the damage was done, his reputation was just tarnished before today but now it's unsalvageable, influencers are openly mocking him.

Wednesday's FOMC statement and press conference didn't sound like the economy was in trouble... 

But there's an old saying that "actions speak louder than words", and the first rate cut in over a decade sends a much different message than the standard 'everything's fine' rhetoric we got from Fed mouthpieces.

Watching live the charts were relatively subdued until the start of the presser when he opened his mouth, that's when everyone was expecting a bit of insight but instead just got confused then incredulous and then realised they were watching a farce. The collapse of confidence in the Feds ability to assess and make decisions was the undoing rather than actual economic data. 

Trump still silent 🤬😡🤬 lol.

    • Why the vaccinated have become super spreaders and a threat to the vaxxed and unvaxxed alike. The possibility of large scale deaths because of the vaccine programme is explored in depth in this video published just a few days ago. But be warned, it's science heavy and 2 hours long.There were warnings by virologists (posted in the 'covid and the economy' thread) when the vax programme was first announced last year that you never start a mass vax programme in the middle of an pandemic.In a mass vax programme you progressively leave the virus with no means of escape while increasing pressure on it to mutate, it's only way to survive is to speed up the rate of mutations to out manoeuvre the vaccine and so create a super infectious vaccine resistant strain that then uses the vaccinated as super spreaders infecting both the vaxxed and unvaxxed. With each attempt to clamp down on the virus with boosters or a new vax the pressure on the virus is increased leading to evermore infectious and dangerous strains.The virologists warned that if a vax programme was carried out they should only vax the vulnerable so viral strains could escape, when they were less infectious, to the healthy unvaxxed who would build herd immunity, the strain then dies out having completing the natural viral life cycle.   Govt science 'experts' knew all this well before embarking on the vaccination programme.
