  • Wall Street Is Starting to Get Nervous About All the Money Pouring Into U.S. Stocks (Bloomberg) After President-elect Donald Trump won the election, markets began a decisive shift in essentially all asset classes. Suddenly, everything from bank stocks to emerging-market bonds staged decisive price swings, driven by a stronger dollar, an increase in U.S. growth expectations, worries over the prospect of a more protectionist Trump-led administration and a steeper U.S. yield curve. A big beneficiary of this dynamic has been U.S. equities, which have now seen nearly $70 billion in inflows since Nov. 8, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Big losers have been emerging market equities and bonds, which have seen more than $10 billion in outflows.

The results are a bevy of homelesss people and increased numbers of suicides.

  • Trump: Only 'stupid' people think warm ties with Russia are a bad thing (CNN) President-elect Donald Trump is continuing to resist conclusions reached by US intelligence agencies on Russian involvement in the 2016 election, and on Saturday defended his long-held belief that closer ties with Russia would be good for the US. Trump's comments come one day after he received intelligence stating that the Russian government hacked Democratic Party groups and individuals during the election, and that Moscow acted to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign to benefit Trump.
