Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

President Donald J. Trump’s trade advisor Peter Navarro says that hitting all points of the Trump agenda will witness ‘the market will go up’

Part of the reason for the market slide is the it on the tech sector.  Amazon, Facebook and other tech giants are taking hits, and some like Apple’s Tim Cook and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerburg are trading shots of their own.

But Navarro is focused on the fundamentals, and with earnings reports just ahead, those fundamentals may – say some analysts – a rebound.

Per Navarro, per CNBC:


  • The stock market is not reacting to the “unbelievable” strength Trump’s economic agenda, Peter Navarro says.
  • If we hit all points of Trump’s agenda, the market will go up, he says.
  • “Everybody needs to relax and kind of look the chess board here,” Navarro says.


In an interview with CNBC’s “Closing Bell,” Navarro said Trump’s “singular focus is on economic growth, rising wages and a strong manufacturing and defense industrial base.”

If we hit all points … the market will go up.”

The Dow Jones industrial average fell another 459 points on Monday, after falling as much as 758.59 earlier during the day. The S&P 500 dropped 2.2 percent and re-entered correction territory. The Nasdaq composite dropped 2.7 percent.

A White House official who declined to be named told CNBC today: “We’re focused on long-term fundamentals. We’re not really reacting to market fluctuations.”

Navarro, director of the White House National Trade Council, however suggested investors may be overreacting.

Everybody needs to relax and kind of look the chess board here. This economy is just strong,” he said.

If fact, he said if he if put on his old hat as a financial market analyst, “I’m thinking the smart money is certainly going to buy on the dips here because the economy is as strong as an ox.”
