Here’s Why the Stock Market Loves Donald Trump

Nov 18, 2016

In the eight trading days since Election Day, the Dow Jones Industrial Average reached a string of record highs, the Dollar Index reached its highest level since 2003, and 10-year Treasury yields (which move in opposition to price) hit the highest levels of the year. The “Trumpflaiton” trade was buttressed by stronger-than-expected news on U.S. jobless claims and housing starts, as well as Fed Chair Janet Yellen’s effective pledge to raise rates in December (and then go on hold for a bit.)
