    Jamie Dimon and Warren Buffett Have the Last Laugh on Bitcoin

    The cryptocurrency experts, who clearly didn’t see this coming, are blaming all sorts of temporary culprits — from jittery markets to “hard forks” (blockchain jargon for radical technical changes in a digital currency). Bitcoin was meant to make all of its investors rich, something that held particular appeal to a millennial generation hungry for a financial boost in a world of crushing student debt, income inequality and low-quality jobs.

    The Worst is Yet to Come for Stocks: Morgan Stanley

    Investors looking for solace amid the wave of market sell-offs may argue that the S&P 500 has fallen only 9% from its all-time highs in September, hardly a devastating decline. “Not only does the price action this year suggest we are in the midst of a bear market—more than 40 percent of the stocks in the S&P 500 are down at least 20 percent—but it also trades like a bear market,” wrote the bank’s analysts.

    Trump just sent the wrong message on a brutal day in the stock markets

    On a brutal day in the stock markets the last thing investors want to see is another attack on the Federal Reserve by President Donald Trump. Trump reportedly told a group of reporters on Tuesday that he would like to see lower interest rates from the Federal Reserve. The president added that the biggest problem right now isn’t the trade war with China (among other geopolitical issues), but rather the Jerome Powell led Federal Reserve.

Vince Fertitta, Bank of America's market president for San Antonio and the executive responsible for Merrill Lynch's Texas mountain region, said the inspiration for the move was about the future vision for the bank.
