Stimulus checks. Unemployment. PPP.

These are reasons why the market is high, but not a justification.

Without focusing on the Zooms and Modernas, do you believe the market and economy as a whole could not be in a better position than any other time in history? Perhaps rewind to 13 months ago when we didnt need trillions of printed dollars to keep hundreds of thousands of businesses afloat? Or should we print 500 trillion dollars and the economy will soar even more?

The government conjured trillions of dollars and pumped it into the economy; prices on houses, cars, food, and household products are up; companies are beating earnings despite no fundamental economic growth; the stock market is at all time highs; yet we think there's no inflation. If it looks like a duck, and sounds like a duck...

If dollars are worth 20% less, then a stock being up 20% is not a sign of growth. It's just a sign of the price of the stock having gone up, together with everything else that becomes more expensive with inflation.

That's the flaw in your thinking. Yes the government inflated the stock market by increasing the money supply, not no, not everything inflated together. For example, BTC inflated more than stocks and gold, food, and urban RE inflated less. The US stock market inflated much more than foreign stock markets, even in USD terms and despite the USD itself being worth much less (which is good for the American net-exporting economy).

Inflation is traditionally measured only by a narrow index of core consumer goods. Some countries in Europe are discussing adding housing now and it's a big controversy.

IMHO now that food production is mostly automated and the link to the cost of labor and the rest of the economy is much, much smaller, the threat of inflation is much lower, which is part of why we have the longest stretch of the lowest interest rates and there is no end in sight.

Will the market go up or down based on Bidens press conference today?
If he has no clue whats going on, will stocks tumble?
If he does a good job will stocks go up?

Same question if people start to get the idea that he won't serve out his term. Is he better or worse than Harris for the economy?

With Biden set to announce a major infrastructure bill next week, what sectors would benefit the most and which specific companies would be good investments at this time?

Most single announcements like this or fumbling of a press conference do not influence in one moment it takes time for the market to move. That being said here are some ideas https://seekingalpha.com/article/4401450-infrastructure-stocks-set-to-soar-in-biden-administration-list-of-potential-winners

Just keep in mind it's far from certain that he has the senate votes to pass it.

My suggestion is to look at a sector ETF for infrastructure (e.g. vanguard's) and take note of the top holdings

VIAC continues to soar, one of my best buys ever. I believe it can continue rallying to 150-200.
Wonder if it's going to recover, or just pull out now while it's tanking, only the past few months was it up.
 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

If/when it recovers you will have plenty of signals and time to re-enter no need to keep it while its tanking unless its a long term holding
