The Federal Reserve May Secretly Want to Sink the Record-Breaking Stock Market

Despite its independence, the Federal Reserve may quietly want a bear market that takes down a president that loves tweeting about the stock market.

Peter Schiff, CEO of Euro Pacific Capital, told TheStreet the "[Janet] Yellen put" in the markets could expire under President Trump. "I don't know if the Fed has much love for Trump," he said, adding that the Fed had the markets' back during the Obama Administration.

"Maybe the Fed would be happy to see a bear market that could be blamed on Trump." Schiff thinks the markets could easily correct 20%.

One black swan event Schiff sees is the notion of investors abandoning the euphoria over Trump's presidency, which helped fuel the stock market rally this year.

"We've had a huge move up since the election of Trump even though prior to the election the expectation was if Trump won it [would be a disaster for markets]," he said.

When asked if the two straight quarters of double-digit earnings growth has sparked the rally in stocks this year, as opposed to solely Trump, Schiff pointed to earnings headwinds in the retail sector.

The Federal Reserve is scheduled to meet later this week.

right and wrong are terms used to constitute morality. debt has no morality. debt is debt.

Wow... a non-response. How predictable. So tell me, what's right, or wrong, about debt. Saying debt is 'wrong' is like saying a hammer is wrong. That's just stupid.

If we are SUPPOSED to have a balanced budget, why won't the GOP do it? Where's their balanced budget amendment? Where's your complaint about the current administration's profligate spending?

And, more importantly, where's your solution?
