You can’t really lean on just things you hear. There is no way that USD will drop with 10% for example just because DT will be the new president of USA. Of course there will be movement in the market but I guess this is normal after elections.
I am also surprised by the immediate erratic conditions to be honest, but this is good news for traders of the USD.

Hooray for volatility! The US Elections is a Non-Event: the choice of president won't have a sustained long-lasting effect on forex. It is the eventual policies that come out that will have the effects.

In other words, only trader sentiment has been affected temporarily. Fundamentals haven't yet changed. Technicals have barely been affected - all pairs are returning to pre-Election levels.

A whole lotta hoo-ha over nada. But thanks for the volatility! wink

Could well be bullish for the USD, he spoke of higher interest rates and cutting regulation, both good for stocks and USD.

Good luck America.

Keep at it

We will need it. America hasn't been globally competitive for the last decade.

Yes! I'm not of the belief that lower tax and less regulation is what you need.

It will definitely give your large companies a boost in earning and the like, but for over-all America, it will expand the issues.

If only America could take a leaf out of the way some of the top European countries run things.

Lower Tax and less regulation is a growth driver which would stimulate the economy (create more jobs and more capex expenditure for growth). It won't necessarily drive earnings (eg, less tax won't mean you have a higher salary (income), it means you have more of it available to you), and most companies will use that extra net profit on capital expenditure which in turn creates jobs.

'expand the issues' is vague, could you elaborate on what issues would be expanded on?

For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.

In theory that's correct, but as far as I'm aware. the less regulation there is, the more the company (top few % of the company) make. Which does not benefit the average American. I'm not sure which regulations should be cut to make business better? Most of it that I see is there for a reason, not to exploit things. Run down economics ( cutting tax for the wealthiest ) hoping they will in turn hire more and pass down the $ they save is completely flawed.

By earnings I meant just the $ the CEO's make.

People are ***ts, why expect them not to be.?

Trump specifically said he would cut regulations that large companies can afford to work with / around, but which squeeze out new and small companies that cannot afford such measures. Many regulations worldwide are there to make the wealthy richer and drive out small competition.

A good example in my country is the most recent regulation that was changed, which was a limit on the minimum capital you could lend before having to register as a financial services provider. This was capped at ZAR 500k, so for example, if you are an individual that lends money on P2P loans, you can lend up to ZAR 500k capital before having to register. This has dropped to ZAR 0 (zero)... to register costs money, there is an initial registration fee and an annual cost (in the thousands). This regulation is blatantly changed to squeeze out lenders with a low capital (the little guys and gals), there is no other reason for it.

Trump will look at those types of limiting regulations and change them.

If you think D.Trump is for the smaller businesses over large, we shall see.

Everything I've seen has him aligned with big business.
