the trade wars and tariffs are real. Companies are warning that tariffs will affect profits with earnings season coming up. The market wasn’t worried about it until now since companies warnings. Being a mfg. that orders raw materials from over seas I am already paying 10-20% higher for some raw materials . Bigger domestic distributors are paying the same and are simply passing the cost along until it reaches consumers. And i just a small guy. So it is in fact very real wether people like it or not.
As the economy improves and people work inflation rises and so will rates to try and control it. The fed has to raise rates in order to prepare for the next recession or bear market.
So We are in a correction I think.
