Think about it, if your rich, you don't want to shell out too much money if you can project higher taxes and more regulations are on the horizon. That is why the markets were so favorable right after Trump was elected. People started investing again because of Trumps promises.

When the rich invest, everybody wins. When they hold on to their money, things move very slow.
It's amazing that the stock market gains while Obama was in office are ignored, but now that you can give Trump credit, suddenly they mean everything. Its partisan BS, and you are better than that.

Did you know Job growth was higher in 2016 than 2017?

Yes it sloooowly went up to about where it was in 2008 in spite of high taxes and mega new regulations. But it was jump started on nov 8th 2016, and we have been setting records almost daily.

Believe me, this would not be happening if Hillary had been elected, you can pretend it would, but it wouldn't.

Are you sure you follow the stock market? What you said isn't even close to being true.

The Obama bull market: A 140% jump in the Dow - Jan. 10, 2017
Quote:
If Donald Trump is lucky, he may never be faced with a market crash as gruesome as the one that welcomed President Barack Obama when he first took office in 2009.

Stocks, which already had plunged in 2008 in the wake of the financial crisis, continued to collapse in the first few weeks after Obama was inaugurated. The Dow plummeted 20% from mid-January to early March 2009.

But as anyone who follows stocks closely knows, the market bottomed in March 2009 and has been off to the races ever since.

With that in mind, it may be tough for stocks to enjoy nearly as explosive a rally under Trump in the next four (or eight) years as it has during Obama's tenure.

The Dow has gone up more than 140% since Obama's inauguration in January 2009.

If you look at how the Dow has done since it hit its low point on March 6, 2009, it's up 210%.

If the Dow goes up 140% during the next eight years (yes, I am going to hypothetically assume that Trump winds up a two-term president for the purposes of this story) then it would be trading around 47,800.

And if it goes up 210%? The Dow would be at about 61,500.

61,500. That seems unimaginable, doesn't it? Heck, 47,800 seems (say like Wallace Shawn in "The Princess Bride") inconceivable!
