    The economy and markets won't be bossed around

    Obama would love to see the economy and markets do bad to prove he was right.

    Auto Sales will boom, extreme shortage of used cars, due to the 3 years of no new production.

    Home Sales will boom

    Stock Market will continue to boom. Everybody is short. Everybody is a potential buyer to close out short positions.

    Obama will do his very best to talk the economy down.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Zero Interest rates are the main reason home sales will boom, auto sales will boom, the stock market will boom.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Of course you have flipped just about everything to write propaganda.
      The Republicans have been working overtime to derail any recovery and bottle up the President in the WH.

      Used cars may be short because so many people can't afford new ones. Median family income in real dollars is slipping. New car prices are trending upwards. People are buying smaller cars.. Of course, today's cars are better and much longer lived than 25 years ago.

      Home sales may boom but we have artificially low interest rates as we did in the Greenspan era, though for different reasons. In the next dozen years the dollar may go down by half, so a mortgage at today's rates may prove a deal. The low rates are presumably fueling a stocks boom too. Greenspan's asset bubbles popped as we recall. the overarching house bubble deflated as a context for the deliberate Bush II subprime debacle. It's an important call when to start raising rates for the economy to rationalize itself.

      It's the Republicans who are trying to ruin every single thing Obama does. If he swatted a fly they would put it on life support. They want boots on the ground in the Middle East and their funders don't want the US to pay attention to China where their interests are now. They have no problem risking a Depression. Follow the money.

    • Not possible without federal program.
