Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


While both Presidents Barack H. Obama and Donald J. Trump enjoyed a similar boost in the Dow and markets the causes are quite different.

POTUS Obama relied on huge deficits and soaring debts, the opposite of what he campaigned upon, when he said that George W. Bush’s debts and deficits was unpatriotic. The Obama years also benefited from a second artificial stimulus, caused by the Federal Reserves purchases in the markets.

By contrast, POTUS Trump has relied upon proven economic principles that worked for both President John F. Kennedy (D), and President Ronald Reagan (R). Reducing regulations, cutting taxes has historically spurred economic growth.

It should also be noted that the Trump bump is occurring at a pace that is allowing the FED to “unwind” those QE purchases, which is a arguably drag on the economy.

Some facts, per left-of-center CNBC.



  • The 30-stock index has surged more than 31 percent since Trump’s inauguration.
  • That marks the index’s best performance under the first year of a president since Roosevelt.
  • “You’ve got lower taxes, less regulation and confidence in the economy is high,” said one investor.
  • The S&P 500 surged 23 percent during Trump’s first year in office.
