What a day today!

SPX opened down significantly as investors digested Trump’s healthcare failure. At least that’s what headlines were showing this morning.

Will Yellen raise rates? We do not know but sell everything, just in case

Friday trading was a carnage. I consider this quite funny. Since FED’s chairman changed the policy of transparency some time ago now any Mr. Fed Unimportant can talk about FED policy publicly.
