President Trump : Warning About Stock Market Crash

(Fri, 4 Sept 2020). The Dow experienced a major selloff Thursday amid signs that traders were finally heeding to Trump`s warnings about a Biden presidency.

The Dow Jones fell more than 800 points on Thursday. Donald Trump continues to warn of election favorite Joe Biden triggering a stock market crash. Jim Cramer is worried about “very inflated” stock market prices. The Dow Jones plunged on Thursday, as major tech stocks saw heavy losses despite some positive jobless claims data. Donald Trump’s constant warnings about Joe Biden triggering a stock market crash may finally be taken seriously by Wall Street after more good polling for the Democratic candidate.


Dow Jones Plunges as Apple Dives

All three major U.S. stock market indices plunged. The Nasdaq crashed 4.5%, as Apple, Microsoft, and Tesla weighed. Plunging tech stocks also dragged down the S&P 500 and Dow Jones.

U.S. economic data were mixed Thursday. Jobless claims data beat forecasts, coming in below 900,000 for the first time since the pandemic began. Continuing claims also declined more than expected. This should perhaps be taken with a pinch of salt, as the actual unemployment rate is still forecast to remain stubbornly high.

The bad news was the ISM non-manufacturing PMI, which declined more than expected to 56.9. Meanwhile, the U.S. trade deficit continues to grow, with the worst reading (-$63 billion) in more than a decade.


Is Wall Street Listening to Trump’s Warnings About a Market Crash?

The election is increasingly in focus for Wall Street, and there is plenty of speculation from the White House that positive polling numbers for Joe Biden could impact stocks given the Democrat’s aggressive tax plan for the wealthy.

With most polls giving the edge to Biden, President Trump’s warning could be taken more seriously as the race heats up. Whether President Joe Biden would actually be harmful to the Dow Jones is unlikely to be clear for some time, even after election day.


Dow 30 Stocks: CNBC’s Jim Cramer Calls Prices “Very Inflated”

With many of the Nasdaq’s biggest stocks miles above their longer-term moving averages, it would not be surprising if a good portion of Thursday’s selling was profit-taking.

Apple has often performed poorly after its stock splits, and the huge run-up to its most recent multiplying raised the probability of a correction. Down 6.5%, Dow bulls will be delighted today that the $2 trillion iPhone maker is no longer it’s most heavily weighted stock.

Elsewhere in the Dow 30, it was clear that frothy tech stocks were the worst hit, as new member took a 6% knock, and mighty Microsoft plunged 5%. It was not just tech that was in trouble, as Home Depot fell 4.5%, and Visa plunged 3%. The only two Dow Jones members in the green were American Express and JPMorgan Chase, which managed 0.1% gains.
