President Donald Trump – aka today's trader – has a pretty good feel for the markets.
One can make the argument a better feel than the Federal Reserve, he continues to explode from the Oval Office office via Twitter.
"We have companies, the largest in the world, and they do very well. They have record numbers. So I think it's a great opportunity to buy. Really a great opportunity to buy," Trump told reporters in the White House at Christmas.
Trump's "bullish" comments come on the heels of the worst Christmas Eve in history. Dow Jones Industrial drove 653 points on Monday when investors continued to dump tech stocks like Apple for fear of global slowdown, and Trump continued to blow Federal Reserve officials to raise interest rates. Investors return to trading the day after Christmas with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite in bear markets. Dow is on the verge of entering one.

So, if active investment is your thing, the Trump broker cannot be such a poor management.

With markets in a free fall among Chinese stock markets turbulence, Trump suggests investors to be" cautious ". At that time, Dow (his favorite target) was closed at 16,459, according to Yahoo Finance data. The Dow hit a bottom of 15,666 on August 25, so Trump saved a few points to the downside.
The Dow then went at the end of the year at 17,425.
Dow dives more than 500 points – down 9% from high. Be careful!

Trump strikes a bullish tone on stocks. Dow closes 23,557. It then goes on its upscale in January for optimism around Trump's tax system.
The Dow reaches a peak at 26,616 on January 26.
Large numbers of stocks and the economy. If we get tax cuts and reforms, we see really good results!

Trump Trader gets a little greedy at this point. He hit a bullish note again, with the Dow ending at 24,922. But then it goes pretty quickly at sea.
After peaking on January 26 to 26,616, the Dow crashed and hit a bottom of 23,860 on February 8 on valuation and Fed rate hike fears.
Dow is currently at 21,792 despite the fact that Trump started growing 201 poetically on the potential for further gains.
Stock Market had another good day, but now that Tax Cut Bill has gone, we have enormous upward potential. Dow only cards of 25,000, a number that few thought would be possible this soon into my administration. Unemployment also dropped to 4.1%. Could be better!
