(February 6) The U.S. markets have pulled back slightly today from the renewed Trump surge on Friday. However, the political furor over Trump moves such as his travel ban seem to be offset by positive expectations of Trump policies with respect to business.
|Trump's recent move to change Dodd-Frank regulations on financial institutions was obviously a plus for markets. The Dow Jones average was still above the 20,000 level at 20,045.87 down just 25.59. So far, the political uncertainty and protests caused by Trump policies have not outweighed positive expectations for the future as indicated by market movements.|
