Trump talking too much about the stock market?

CFRA investment strategist Lindsey Bell, 32 Advisors CEO Robert Wolf and Fox News correspondent Lea Gabrielle on the markets, the Federal Reserve and the outlook for the economy.

President Trump seemed to fault investors on Wednesday for this week’s historic stock market dive, claiming “good news” on the economy should have positively affected the markets.

“In the ‘old days,’ when good news was reported, the Stock Market would go up,” Trump tweeted. “Today, when good news is reported, the Stock Market goes down. Big mistake, and we have so much good (great) news about the economy!”
