That's not the title of the article but that's the talk on Fox News Network as of 5 minutes ago, as I was watching the coverage. Here's the Fox News article on Dowd resigning. (I'll continue below.) I don't really know what to think about Dowd resigning, to be honest it's kind of a yawn for me. As far as saying it caused a negative day on the stock market, I think that's a bit too much of a stretch. If anything I think it's more likely the pending budget bill is the cause, uncertainty about the effect of the budget on the economy. I just have to laugh at stock market pessimism. We've had a good run. Markets sometimes need to kick back or whine a bit before they get back to work. I don't see the market condition as anything other than punctuation, ready to start the next sentence. It really pisses me off when know-nothing news commentators get negative and then shit-for-brains investors get scared and run like a spooked herd of cattle. It's know-nothing sheeple investors that mess up the market! Their stock drops a few points and they cry like babies and sell off. I just bought a small number of shares on Monday. If Amazon drops below Monday's price I might spend the rest of my cash in the account on a couple more shares. I still think Amazon will double in a bit less than 2 years from my previous prediction. Let's say I predict Amazon at/over $3,000 by end of February 2020. I might consider selling out if my stock goes negative on me but I'm still up 20% over my initial investment so there's a long way to fall before I get scared. I'd feel sad but it wouldn't bother me to sell at break-even and lose more than a year's salary equivalent that I could reap if I sold today. I've never "made" this much money before. Noting that what I have is "unrealized profits" and that I don't have anything but imaginary numbers until the day I sell.
