Clinton

Dan Collins, Editor in Chief, Modern Trader Magazine discusses how a rate increase is essentially a done deal.
In the context of how aggressively trends across all asset classes have progressed since Donald Trump’s U.S. Presidential election victory, it might seem like needless hindsight to revert back to a political assessment. Yet, there are so many interesting aspects of the U.S. election campaign and major developments in Europe as well that this is actually worth an extensive review. We begin with one of the more interesting post mortems on the Hillary Clinton loss.

The conventional wisdom is that active investors and market participants prefer Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump to maintain the seven-year stock market advance that began in 2008 and took out prior highs in 2013. According to a new election eve survey – that is only partially true.
OPEC says that next year will be a turning point for crude oil toward a more balanced market and we will be at a turning point for the world as the United States elects a new President.

I woke up from my Sunday afternoon siesta to see that markets gapped up after learning FBI Director Comey backed off the Clinton investigation. The country is divided, Washington is a mess, day-after-day of WikiLeaks revelations, layers of scandal on top of scandal, ect.

We’ve made it to the final week of the campaign. I don’t know if we are going to get a black swan out of this but we are certainly having our October surprise. What I can tell you is what I’ve been telling you. I think everyone is having election fatigue. It shows in the charts. It really hit home on Friday when the news broke the FBI reopened the Clinton case. My 1-min YM chart sank like a rock.
