What To Watch

On to the markets…

What a wild ride it’s been over the last week.

After the election, global markets plummeted, sending the Dow futures down over 800 points… only to snap back and rally over the next few days.

I believe the markets were more upset over Clinton losing the election… more than Trump winning.

The volatility will continue for a time as the market digests the idea of a Trump Presidency and Cabinet.

Expect Banks, Pharmaceuticals, and Drug companies to do well in the coming months.

Expect volatility to continue!

Let’s take a look at our positions.
