2017-01-25 Dow Jones passes 20,000 for first time (http://www.bbc.com/news/business-38742516)

Good news, presumably, unless one assumes it's overdue to plummet soon.

Pound now over 1.26 against the dollar too. All's improving in the world; Brexit democracy in action, Trump's construction project due to begin and the EU set to collapse. Just need Guardiola and Klopp to keep having meltdowns and all will be good. :smokin

He's having mini-meltdowns in most post-match interviews at the moment.

Is it linked to Trump's pipeline decisions?

The US economy is at full employment now and humming along nicely.
Trump is about to do what every economist would not recommend and boost it even further with spending, stoking up a massive boom.
Ride the equities market baby, but choose a good spot to get off, because when the crash comes it will be BIG.

The higher they rise the further they fall.

It is very clear a UK/US anti EU thing is underway. Very odd. Why they both despise the EU so much is interesting.

I feel like the US went through a point of protectionism before but I'm a bit foggy on the outcome.

So are you saying that there are more non-EU migrants than EU migrants?

That's total paranoia. The UK/US don't despise the EU.

Trump simply wants to Buy American and Hire American and the UK just wants to trade without any restrictions. It's not like we're planning an invasion ....

Is it?

No matter the number of times they've said the Euro is going to collapse it still comes out. If it was that awful why is the £ not trading 2x to the €?

The US only feel threatened as they fear it might become a new reserve currency.

This guy is a loon.

Wonder what would happen if the money men in Frankfurt started shorting the euro (as Trumps men are claiming they will do)?

Listened to this the other week:

Episode 443: Don't Believe The Hype : Planet Money : NPR (http://www.npr.org/sections/money/2017/01/04/508261371/episode-443-dont-believe-the-hype)

It's a good primer on what the DOW really measures and how wonky it is to take much from it. Still used as an indicator of allsorts for everyone seemingly though.

Not at all. You've missed the point again. I'm wondering how all these players are managing to be in the Premier League without being EU migrants. Oops.

Oh and Klippety had another meltdown last night.

Less immigration from EU countries and tighter relations with the Commonwealth countries which means get ready for the invasion of Indians and Pakistani who will do your contract for a quarter of the price (and quality)
