STOCK MARKET AT ALL-TIME HIGH! HOW ARE YOUR 401K’S DOING? 70%, 80%, 90% up? Only 50% up! What are you doing wrong?

“STOCK MARKET AT ALL-TIME HIGH! HOW ARE YOUR 401K’S DOING? 70%, 80%, 90% up? Only 50% up! What are you doing wrong?” President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Thursday.
The record numbers come despite tensions abroad with the recent U.S. killing of IRGC Quds Force General Qassem Suilemani Friday. President Trump announced a new economic sanctions package targeting the country Wednesday as the Iranian regime continues a campaign of retaliation against U.S. troops in the Middle East.
