I've got an IRA CD with a 2.57% rate on it that matures in December and do you know what that interest rate is now after this last FED rate cut in October???

That interest rate now is 1.3%????

So NO, everyone else is NOT doing well after Trump bitched at the FED until they cut the interest rate 3 fucking times in less than 6 months!!!

But yes, he's still my President! [/rolleyes]

I am also not super thrilled with how low interests rates are today, but for different reasons I'm guessing. Now, if you're voluntarily buying a CD at 1.3%, that's on you. A savings account would pay more.

And yes, I would put that money in the stock market.

Thanking Trump is a bit of a stretch, but my 401k is doing quite well.

Lets see...stock market goes from about 18000 when Trump was elected to nearly 28000 now...probably the largest jump ever in that amount of time.

You should be following investment sites on twitter not SJW cry-fest bloggers who should be throat punched for their ignorance.

That would be a start.

Stop being a Twitter-puss.

There are PLENTY of other reasonably risk averse investment types out there that pay more than CD rates.

Google is your friend.

Or you can keep crying on a message board your choice.

Oh and BTW at 2.57% when you take into consideration inflation you LOST money in your "super safe" investment CD.

Sounds like you need an advisor....or a comfort pet maybe both.

First, I'll point out that those numbers are for the Dow, not the "stock market". I've never actually met anyone who's portfolio mirrored the Dow, so it's a meaningless index in my opinion.

I will agree that the market as a whole has done very well since Trump's election. But in case you forgot, the market did extremely well during the Obama administration as well.

Point being, if you believe the president is directly responsible for your 401k balance, and invest accordingly, you either lost your ass under Obama, or are currently losing your ass. Some people actually do believe this, and they're idiots.
