Stocks Jump As Trump Promises Plan For "Biggest Tax Cut Ever" Next Week (Again)

Tyler Durden's picture

It's deja vu all over again...


And the machines fell for it...


As AP reports, President Donald Trump says businesses and individuals will receive a "massive tax cut" under a tax reform package he plans to unveil next week.

In an interview with The Associated Press, Trump says the plan will result in tax cuts for both individuals and businesses. He would not provide details of the plan, saying only that the tax cuts will be "bigger I believe than any tax cut ever."


[which will be impressive compared to Reagan's 35ppt cut...]



The president says the package will be released on "Wednesday or shortly thereafter" — just before his 100 day mark in office.


Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin initially set a goal of getting tax reform passed by August, but that deadline has slipped. Mnuchin now says the administration still hoped to get a bill passed well before the end of the year.

The dollar and bond yields are moving higher also...

I told everyone 2 weeks ago that the "tax cut" headlines will be saved for when the stock market gets weak; rmember when janet said that monetary "policy" needs help from the fiscal side too?  well, they got the hint and and "help" means the same in fiscal speak as it does in fedspeak.....all you have to do is jawbone when needed, it works for the fed and it will work for trump.....all talk no action is all that is there is no irony that this happened right after a 40 point DOW dive in 30 seconds and right before the french weekend.

Why wouldn't they, the whole market is supported by this one notion - that unpassable tax cuts will be passed.

Exactly how can there be major tax cuts which will never pass and no repeal of the major tax known as Obamacare.

"Wednesday or shortly thereafter" — depending on the stock market (dont forget the major socials and FANG's report next 2 weeks)

"I get 'moved' when the girlfriend opens her mouth....."

Perphaps "moved" as inspired to leave the room, 99.9999% when she opens her mouth, is to ask you to do something or complain about something ridiculous trivial.

You may not be Winnning, but someone sure is making a bundle by front-running said Big Mouth and his Wall St. portfolio. 

Call it a Super-Mighty Preemptive Speculation.

Anyone who pays taxes fell for it. Follow the money! Or I should say the CB money coming online quarterly.

"Anyone who pays taxes fell for it. Follow the money! Or I should say the CB money coming online quarterly."

FWIW: I more or less think is just an excuse to buy more crap with OPM (Other People's money) so they can claim big paper profits for their quarterly bonuses. No Financial manager really cares as long as its OPM they are using to play with. They only get upset when the bubble pops and they don't get any more bonuses.

I guess the algos wanted to buy this news on a discount on this slow day. Given the wtf moment a little while ago.

Shhh ... if he says it it will get done ... look at how tired we are of winning ... leverage the house buy the dip, the climb, and the sideways

I wonder if the algos are programmed to recognise that empty vessels make the loudest noise?

I'm interested to see how Trump will fund his big tax cuts because  the rich don't play taxes. Where is the revenue going to come if you don't make deep cuts to entitlements, military, etc.

"I'm interested to see how Trump will fund his big tax cuts because the rich don't play taxes. Where is the revenue going to come if you don't make deep cuts to entitlements, military, etc."

Simple, Its like the movie "The Producers" staring Gene wilder & Zero Mostel (aka Springtime for Hitler). The producers set up a play that was guarenteed to flop, took in big $$$ and promised them each 50% of the profits, and they made this same promise to dozen of investors. When the Play flopped the planned to keep all of the investor's money.

However, in this case, the US government owns a printing press that can create trillions out of thin air!

How can Trump magically increase the military budget by 54 billion with tax cuts?  Oh, I forgot,

the FED will magically create money out of nothing to pay for it.

Biggest tax cut Eva!
Will this be before or after they shut down the federal government because they're out of money?

I hate Hillochio's fucking guts but stfu already Trump you're just a lying piece of shit shining us on. If you prosecute Assange that's it for me your're a god damned traitor.

barysenter's picture

The Assange story is next stage msm lies. Don't believe. Especially them.

hangemhigh77's picture

I hope you're right. At this point I want FUCKING BLOOD. Hang these fucking traitors.

hangemhigh77's picture

Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. I'm not that stupid Trump. We should just have a policy where we FUCKING HANG ALL POLITICIANS AND BANKSTERS.

Take an off-the-cuff remark add five or six hyperbolic superlatives. That's what passes for presidential leadership now. Is China a curreny manipulator? Is a strong dollar good or bad? Is Russia our friend or foe? Are we repealing this law "immediately" or is it more complicated than we thought?

I need a drink!

Unrealving tax plan is a big deal? I thought he will pass his tax plan next week, wtf, he has talked about his tax plans for months, we need to hear it again and again, just pass it and get it over with. I just feel that each market feel, he came out and release some progress news or hope, well, come on! We had 8 years of hope with Obama, economy is shit, how much more hope do you need with Trump before the crash.
