Stock Market Votes for Trump Again!

By hitting another high point, the stock market votes for confidence in Donald Trump.

The reason we can say the stock market votes is that it measures investor confidence. It doesn’t measure our actual financial prospects, but it does measure whether people are optimistic or pessimistic about the economy. And despite everything the mainstream media have said to make people think we are on the edge of political turmoil, the stock market is still handing out the Trump era a vote of confidence.
