It's not a bear market by the definition. I'm tired of the zero interest show. Send the Fed out and tell everybody that they are ready to raise rate and then after the meeting and no rate increase Yellen gives another stupid excuse why they couldn't raise. They aren't going to raise this year and over the next six months the S& P 500 is going to test the low's it hit in February. Trump saying he was going to replace Yellen was actually the only intelligent thing he has ever said. I think he already backtracked on it.
Last year the results of the bank stress test were in March. This year they are in June. All they did was announce part of a buyback that would have been announced in full, if the stress test wasn't moved forward 3 months. They are really trying to pump their stock price. Why is the question.
