Investors are concerned that Monday's good economic news could cause the Fed to end its stimulus policies sooner rather than later.

Stocks fell Monday, bucking a trend of record-breaking gains, amid mixed reports on Black Friday shopping and concerns that the Federal Reserve might soon end its stimulus policy.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than it has since Nov. 7,  dropping 77 points, or 0.5%, to 16008. The S&P 500 index fell 4.9 points, or 0.3%, to 1800.

Stocks fell despite—or because—of some improving economic markers that sparked concern that the Fed might decide the economy no longer needs its stimulus boosts.

@JohnNagel Do you post these off-topic spam rants everywhere all the time?  Get your own damned website and do it.  That way you and your fellow rantees can enjoy a mutual circle jerk of irrelevant BS.  No one else is listening to such over the top crap.  They've already made up their minds about it.

Because if you don't get it by NOW that you're only preaching to your own brainwashed choir with such an irrational comparison, you're never going to get it.

Humanity survived by being adaptable.  Being adaptable means recognizing what reality is, and is not.  Based on your post, you can't do that anymore. 

Get help.  You need it.
