THE WALL STREET MARKET
Wall Streets zig-zagging inflated Price to Earning Ratios and Global Investments are producing great profits for their Investment Companies.
The investor IRA and other investments are continuing to take losses. Has your Company or Corporate Investment Plans and Managed Portfolios of Stocks and Bonds produced you a -10% to -15% loss over the last year? Your not alone.
FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD 2-12-2018:
Will the new FED Chief be able to turn the tide?
The prior FED Cheif lived in the government world of "make-believe".
Make Wall Streets speculative global investment plans and Wall Street profitable at all costs to America and Americans.
Believe it America; it is happening whether you like it or not.
Will the US government continue to turn its back on Main Street America and support Wall Street?
Wall Streets Euro Global Market is not a "Blue Chip" Market and never has been, and in all probability, never will be any time in the near future.
The FED, Congress and Senate may need to focus Wall Street on making America's Business in America a profitable investment.
REAL ESTATE FUTURES EXPANDED:
The Prime Lending Rate has been increase 4 times in just over a year. Their is no real apparent benefit to this other than it has continued to suppress USA markets already in a recession for over 8 years from 2008-2016 through today.
The FED has manipulated interest rates on the housing market to try to keep it in check. The reality is that the FED's current Plan is to increase Home Loan Rates to 5% and then 6% in the next 2 Years.
What is this going to do to the market? Probably not improve it. Usually when Interest Rates increase the credit markets shut down and the potential of more Foreclosures becomes higher and Retail Sales go lower due to the fact of uncertainty and affordability of America.

Make America Great Again:
Trumps Make America Great Again Plan has moved forward with long-range goals, but no significate plans have been put in place to recover the down trending USA economy.
This is in part because Congress and the Senate are comfortable not doing anything new for the American public who elected them to office for representation in the "We the People" behalf.
"The US faces a wide range of domestic challenges related to the abuse of entrusted power for private gain," which is Transparency International's definition of corruption.
Continuing, on the World Corruption of Political influence, the Corruption Perception Index "World CPI" of 2012-2016 reflected the following.
The US has ranged from 73% to 76% Politically Corrupt, or number 18 in the World, between 2012 and 2016. A total of 176 countries were surveyed. Does this mean 3 out of 4 politicians are verifiably corrupt in their representation of America and the American Public? Something to think about when you go to the Polls this year.
Despite Trumps efforts to upscale higher paying jobs and rebound America and the American peoples pocketbook, Congress and the Senate have not put anything new on the table.
How long has Political Corruption running wild in America? Probably the closest estimate of time would be about 1998. "The Clinton–Lewinsky scandal was an American political sex scandal that involved 49-year-old President Bill Clinton and 22-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky.Clinton was subsequently acquitted on all impeachment charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in a 21-day Senate trial."
Just the Facts:
 Clinton was held in civil contempt of court by Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving misleading testimony in the Paula Jones case regarding Lewinsky and was also fined $90,000 by Wright. His license to practice law was suspended in Arkansas for five years; shortly thereafter, he was disbarred from presenting cases in front of the United States Supreme Court.
End of Archive.
There has not been and currently there is no real conversation as to stimulus plans by Congress or the Senate to reinstate the Middle Class Americans, that has been conveniently offed by the prior 2008 to 2016 administration.
Americans who are at the Poverty Level equal 39,256,724 "Thirty-Nine Million Two Hundred and Fifty-Six Thousand Seven Hundred and Twenty Four"Americans or approximately 30.8% when compared to the Full-Time Work Force currently in America. Food Stamp Benefits today, currently are being extended to over 46,277,875 or 36.3% of the 127,301,509 Full-time Work Force.
Americans living in Poverty are Down -1.5 Million, One and a Half Million people since 11-15-2017. Americans living on Food Stamps are Up over 5 Million Americans.
Trump's personal efforts have produced some results, but a substantial boost of the USA Economy to get Americans back into circulation is desperately needed by USA major industries of Real Estate, Retail Sales, and Auto Sales and more.
If a stimulus plan were facilitated and "distributed fairly" then everyone moves up a notch including but not limited to individuals who are now succeeding and companies and corporations.
