You can’t predict. It doesn’t work. You can only react to market price movement. Oh sure, I don’t care much for the politics and economics I see these days (read: bailouts for everyone), but making your trading decisions off what some politician or Fed official grunts out on any given day is a sure fire recipe for major disaster or said bluntly — losing your money. How did we ever get to the point that millions of people truly believe that a bunch of suits actually care about them? Why do so many need a daddy?
