Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


There is plenty of other market moving news captured in our left-right bullets above.  So why this topic tonight?

Arguably, the president is trying to neutralize what he thinks has been an artificial headwind to stocks and the economy.

First, here is what CNBC said tonight.

  • President Donald Trump decides to choose Stephen Moore for a Federal Reserve board spot after discussing a column in which Moore criticized the central bank.
  • Why isn’t [Moore] the Fed chairman?” Trump asks rhetorically after reading the column, according to a senior administration official.
  • Despite both Moore’s and Trump’s criticism of Fed Chair Jerome Powell, the central bank chief’s job appears safe for now, according to the official.

What makes this interesting is that POTUS Trump, clearly an unconventional president, may be setting up an even more interesting challenge to the Fed’s influence over the markets.  That will be the undertow to watch.

But frankly, one could make the case that political activity is having more impact on markets and money.  That and media bias – with some 90 percent of mainstream news tilted against the president, per third party research – are the bigger perceptual headwinds.
