Last weekend there were a couple of quotes in the new attributed to Trump to the effect that the strong stock market made it the perfect time for a trade war. A nonsensical sort of non sequitur we've come to accept as making sense. Also some things about the stock market proving his economic policies, whatever the hell they are, a stupendous.
Point being I sort of understood it all to be a way to motivate people to buy stocks, and so it seems to have been.
It's a silly lens through which to view the market. So it goes.
