not TDS,  and you MAGAts got it really bad.

Escalation of commitment

Here's an excerpt:

"Economists and behavioral scientists use a related term, sunk-cost fallacy, to describe the justification of increased investment of money or effort in a decision, based on the cumulative prior investment ("sunk cost") despite new evidence suggesting that the future cost of continuing the behavior outweighs the expected benefit."

"In sociology, irrational escalation of commitment or commitment bias describe similar behaviors. The phenomenon and the sentiment underlying them are reflected in such proverbial images as "throwing good money after bad" or "in for a penny, in for a pound", or "It's never the wrong time to make the right decision."

How this applies to MAGAts:

Having cast your lot with a narcistic, sociopathic career criminal, you cannot now bring yourselves to admit how badly wrong you were, despite incontrovertible evidence to that effect. Your only perceived option - irrational as it is - is to double down on your delusional support for #45.

Word to the wise: you really are "throwing good money after bad," and the rest of us see it very clearly. No amount of insistence on your part that what we see really isn't happening will change objective reality. If your concern is with public humiliation, be advised that that is occurring already. Doubling down on your position will only make it worse. In poker terms, you don't have enough money to bluff your way out of this one. We're all going to get to see your cards, and the hand you're holding is pathetically bad....

You are rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.  It’s clear and plain that the Dems are not going to win the election and there is nothing they can do at this point.  They have made so many wrong decisions by now that their reputation has become that of a bunch of left wing nuts who are actually trying to convince America to vote for socialist tax raisers when the economy is singing along.

Dow change from Jan 20 2013 to Jan 20, 2017...up 47.8%

Dow change from Jan 20 2017 to Oct 18, 2019...up 36.2%

 

Trump's record will equal Obama's if the dow can go from 27001 to 29300 between now and Jan 20 2021 when trump leaves office* !  We shall see.

* When I'm betting Trump will have to be dragged kicking and screaming from the WH by the US Marines!

I love it when people give Obama credit for the surge of the market the day Trump was elected until January 2017!  That's why figures lie and liars figure!  Lol. 

good try though Archie. And yes American vote their pocketbook, always have and always will.

when people give credit or assign blame to any president for the ups and downs of the stock market when the president has very little to do with it going up or coming down!  Obviously you and FF disagree when it is going up during Trump's tenure but completely agree if it is going down...then it's all still Obama's fault!

The market reacts to where they believe business will be 6 months into the future.  The day Trump was declared the winner the market shot up and has been there ever since.  Anyway, voters vote their pocketbooks, period.  So I suppose you need to work to bring your 401k down by November 2020.  Lol.
