    Donald Trump hit out at the Federal Reserve on Wednesday, accusing them of “going loco” over interest rate hikes this year, hours after the worst US stock market sell-off since February. Mr Trump said in an interview on Fox News that the market plunge was not because of his trade conflict with China, instead blaming the US central bank. “That wasn’t it. The problem I have is with the Fed,” he said. “The Fed is going wild. They’re raising interest rates and it’s ridiculous. The Fed is going loco.” He added: “They’re so tight. I think the Fed has gone...

    For years central banks had been keeping rates near 0%, or below, and at the same time printing over a hundred billion dollars’ worth of fiat currencies each and every month to purchase bonds and stocks.

    Look to the stock market and you'd assume Wall Street was doing just fine. The S&P 500 has come back to March highs, the Dow is back to positive for 2018, and the Nasdaq is at fresh records. It's all built on shaky foundations, said longtime market bear and former Republican Congressman Ron Paul. This market is in the "biggest bubble in the history of mankind," and when it bursts, it could cut the stock market in half, he told CNBC's "Futures Now" Thursday. (please see full story at link)

    U.S. stocks were higher in afternoon trading on Wednesday, with the major indexes recovering from earlier losses as investors’ fears eased over a trade conflict between the United States and China. Beijing hit back against U.S. plans to impose tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods, with proposals for a list of similar duties on key American imports including soybeans, planes, cars, beef and chemicals. However, investor concerns appeared to ease after Trump’s top economic adviser Larry Kudlow said the administration was involved in a “negotiation” with China rather than a trade war. The market also seemed to take comfort...
