Market mood: I don't want to hear it. Markets are not people, but they do have moods, and right now the market mood is, "I don't want to hear it!" The Dow dropped 373 points on May 17 on reports that former FBI Director James Comey had written a memo alleging that President Trump asked him to drop an investigation into Michael Flynn. Concerns about obstruction of justice were raised. But the next day, the markets acted like nothing happened, or that it wasn't an issue.
