Dodd-Frank was unnecessary. It was not deregulation that caused the 2008 financial crisis and global market meltdown.

Here is the plan to replace Dodd-Frank in case you didn't see it yet.

I hope you changed that to at least 23,000. The money stored over seas hasn't even been injected into the markets yet.

It's always problematic to take ownership of market changes, but there is no doubt about the Trump bump. I think there would have been some bump from Clinton winning too, just because the market likes certainty, but the market likes a business guy as President even more.
I can't believe it took this long for a correction. Makes me want to gamble in the markets. Nah, I like ROI a minimum 30% a year and just don't have the knowledge to do it in the stock market.
