It is a question that Republicans and Democrats, young and old, investors and novices, and basically all Americans with retirement savings plans are pondering: What will the stock markets do during the first 100 days of President Donald J. Trump’s administration?
- The new President’s 1st 100 days in office is usually the so-called “honeymoon period” that the President has with Congress and the public, and can set the tone for what’s to come.
- The markets have already risen substantially after Trump won the Presidency on 11/8/16.
- The Dow quickly rose as much as 7.5% before cooling off over the past few weeks.
- According to Fact-Set (which provides financial information and analytic software for investment professionals) since Election Day, ETF or exchange-traded fund investors have invested nearly $14 billion into the SPDR S&P 500 Trust (an investment fund tracks & follows the S& P 500 index.
- Investors have also placed and another $6.5 billion into the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (Which invests in a wide array of diversified financial service firms, ranging from investment management firms to commercial and investment banking.
- History has shown us that the stock market will be fairly good to President Donald Trump, at least in the beginning.
- Since 1953, the S&P 500 has risen an average of 1.6 percent in the first 100 days of a presidency, posting gains 70 percent of the time.
- President Trump takes office during the 2nd longest bull market run in history, (which is approaching 8 years this coming March)
- Since March of 2009 The S&P 500 has risen over 1,300 points.
- After flirting with the 20,000 plateau, the Dow Jones Industrial average has cooled off.
- Some experts are saying that this could be a case where the market rallies briefly, hits those targets, (like the 20,000 mark for the Dow) and then falls, and that volatility may be about to return to the markets.
- Stocks rose more (ahead of Trump’s first day) with the Dow gaining 100 points at the start Friday.
- That stood in stark contrast to Barack Obama‘s swearing-in back in 2009 when the market, (sunken by the financial crisis) , lost about 5.3 percent.
