Was Janet Yellen Crowned Market Predator?
5 months ago

Although I've never been much of a conspiracy theorist, I do believe that corporation lobbyists have intentionally fattened, drugged and dumbed down Americans. All while the wealthy continue to ascend.

Hi there,

I totally agree with you! Market tends to run about 6 months ahead so my thinking is that the first 100 days of Trump's presidency will dictate the next 3 1/2 years. By March-April, everything could change. Thanks for writing! Appreciate the interchange.
