Don’t know what Dow Futures are and what happened last night click here
With the early polls showing Hillary Clinton winning the presidency the market seem to be steady, as they knew what to expect. Although as the night went on, Trump started winning more and more states, because of this the market initially reacted in a downward trend as they were still not sure what was about to happen as well as what the house and the senate would look like. Finally, at the end of the night the house, senate, and president all became republican, with Hillary conceding. Investors felt somewhat at ease and futures started to return to normal leading the market to a normal opening.
Yes, it almost looked like it was about to be Black Friday in the market today but that did not happen. So how can you be a smart investor at this time? Anybody can buy things when market is down especially if you have an iron stomach, but few understand Trump’s political and economic plans that will lead to finding value to build your portfolio
• Infrastructure & Industrial Markets (Trump wants to create jobs and build infrastructure)
• Defense Stocks (Trump has pledged to spend more on military and fight ISIS)
• Big Corporation with lots of money overseas (Trump wants to lower the corporate tax rate to 15%, which could sway companies to bring their money back into the states)
