Most of us can agree that 2016 was a banner year.  Thought on next year?

I see no reason not to expect a continuing upward trend. However, I am concerned about interest rates and inflation....The political noise will continue but that is life...Maybe, if the economy actually turns around, the protesters will find a job, pay their own way and Grow up...I have been on my on since I was 18; the tit needs to be removed from their mouths.

Well...  we don't even know where this economy is because it has been artificially propped.  If they remove the props too quickly it could crash.  Trump is very aggressive.  I'm unsure how much he will understand this.  He would be wise to focus on lowering the incentives for companies to move overseas.  Bring jobs back first.  Incentivize the corporate off shore accounts, currently holding back billions to avoid taxes, to be brought back home at lesser tax rates.  Lower taxes on corps so that they move into the US not out of. 

Then, and only then, would I mess with the Fed.  Although the Fed is very politically motivated they could give a big middle finger to Trump and raise rates a half or full point in Dec or really anytime next year..  and all of the puppets will say "see, its the republicans"...  before he even gets to implement his first policy.

Very scary times indeed as there are many bullets left in the gun to make Trumps job very hard or impossible.  Got to hand it to the liberals...   they have infiltrated every faction of the system and were working in perfect lock step..   to what end I have no idea... or I do.. it looked like a complete collapse of America just one Hillary term away. 

We appraisers are gong to have to endure some tough times while the new normal sets in and the refinance machine reloads.  It has shot all of its ammunition in the past few years.

Trump is going to replace Yellen.  But I don't anticipate a significant rate rise.

Trump can't replace Yellen until 2018.  The best he could do is make her job uncomfortable.

I think rates were kept low prior to the election to benefit the incumbant party.  I hope they will keep them low for a bit until Trump can build the economy on factors such a lower taxes and bringing jobs back.  Raising the rates now would be a disaster for trump right now.
