So what happened today was markets were recovering nicely from the China-Trump feud, then China announced new retaliatory tariffs. Then Fed Chairman Jerome Powell gives a speech at the Jackson Hole (don't get me started) which calmed the markets.
But wait! Trump is about to effing tweet something that will cause the markets to crash again! (Is he short-selling? Please find this out, Congress.)
The CNBC panel has had enough. Jim Lebenthal is a partner at Cerity Partners.
The panel also included Steven Weiss of Short Hills Capital Partners, who said that the biggest risk to the market is Trump:
