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.



I think xgavinc meant that Trump is going to increase the burden for the small business in favour of the large corporations. In my opinion, his speeches are quite populist and his policy in the end will not be that extreme. Time will tell though...

Trump is not the scary monster he was made out to be. Sorry Magixs, not even going to bother viewing the clip, I have scoured many sources to get the truth and facts over propaganda and have seen too many cut and past clips that make Trump seem evil, but when i find the full speeches he has given, the context of it as he speaks, the clips are clearly out of context. Spent an hour explaining paraboles and hyperboles to people without success (Clinton is quite literally fused in their brain, and facts are 'not true' and then they refer to CNN)... I give up.

Your comment is also inaccurate, in a speech and quite a few interviews he specifically said 'small business don't even get off the ground due to extreme regulation', and he plans to change that.

Thank you Richard, but alas, I meant he plans to cut 'restrictive regulation' overall (so it will be good for both small and large companies). He also mentioned a cut on business tax, he did not say tax cuts for corporations as mainstream media twist the facts.

Fox News and RT were the most factual networks (even correcting factually incorrect information they gave in special statements), Bloomberg, MSNBC and CNN were horrendous factually, and I found other online news mostly regurgitating CNN. Even Sky news seemed to be tapped into a CNN news feed.

Anyway, I only believe something I have independently verified as factual... and now my brain hurts. As Richard states, it's all a storm in a tea cup, unfortunately there are still many folks without the facts that are hurting right now, I can assure them it was a propaganda machine on overdrive.

Eg. Here is a fact still circulating inaccurately: The wall (physical or not - by not, meaning it could refer to border / immigration control in general [this is Trump, we have to factor in a parabole]) will be paid for by Mexico... by increasing export taxes {duties} and reducing imports from Mexico, the difference will be used to pay for 'the wall'.

If you are of the belief that Mexico will fund the wall out of their pocket, or my favorite (appears many times) by citizen taxes that Congress will not allow, then you fell prey to the propaganda and should consider your sources of information.

Another one: The 650 Million immigrants in one week was a hyperbole (Hillary stated before his speech she will allow another 65 000 un-vetted immigrants), he turned it into a hyperbole on the premise of 'open border policy' - it's obvious if you can find the full speech and sit through the whole thing.

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

Agreed. Well said.

But ain't it great how the majority believe mass hype? All the uncertainty increases the volatility in the markets! wink

The US Elections was a Non-Event. The eventual policies will be what determines a change in fundamentals.

Other than Mexico having a really bad time (USDMXN).
As investors / traders we have to ensure accurate information (check statements, double check, never take information at face value).
In the beginning of the race if you asked me I was pro-Clinton win, half way through things weren't adding up, at the end I became pro-Trump win (my opinion of outcome - not my voting opinion as I'm not a US citizen, if anything I would have looked for Trey Gowdy and not find him on the ballot... lol!) {UNCONFIRMED report that Trey Gowdy may be chosen as Attorney General btw, if you havn't heard yet}.

And as you say, the context and content of new/altered/replaced policy will be key. We can speculate on 'policy' till the cows come home, it's the implementation that matters.

Let me just add one more thing:

'As you’ll learn in the video below from Anonymous, the corporation of the UNITED STATES is owned by the Illuminati, which means the Illuminati ultimately make any and all decisions of “real” significance for the United States. As long as the politicians SELECTED NOT ELECTED by either political party’s system, or those chosen by the global elites personally do as they are instructed to do (on a macro level), they are permitted to give off the illusion that they are the actual decision makers for the country. It has been that way “officially” since 1871 when the Forty-First Congress handed all the power of the United States over to the Illuminati. Save the “Conspiracy” nonsense for another time. The Act of 1871 can be downloaded and read for yourself.'

Let's see how long Trump will be the People's President. The President is simply the CEO of America Inc.

Trump would have a cabinet without representation of Latinos.
Almost all the names that are shuffled in the list are of Trump's businessmen, friends, partners or advisers.eek

The currency in Mexico collapses and the government of Peña Nieto has not laid out a clear plan.
