Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

CNBC reported that the weakest global stock market at present is China’s. The tariffs and trade skirmish with the Trump Administration is taking its toll. So while the talk is tough on both sides, there are a growing number of market watchers who believe that the Trump Administration is on the right path.

CNBC reported that the weakest global stock market at present is China’s. The tariffs and trade skirmish with the Trump Administration is taking its toll. So while the talk is tough on both sides, there are a growing number of market watchers who believe that the Trump Administration is on the right path.

Perhaps related, 1/3 of China’s millionaires want to move, per a new survey in that nation. Their top place they’d like to move with their money? The U.S. 

The video from Fox Business below focuses on trade, but it makes another point that those who may not yet understand the tax cuts can perhaps appreciate. People are leaving high tax New Jersey for no income tax Florida. That’s what was happening internationally for years. 

High U.S. taxes were driving businesses overseas. 


The Trump Administration has reversed that course. The result?  Hundreds of billions came pouring back into the U.S. during the first quarter. The U.S. currently has the strongest stock market in the world, per various reports. In turn, those dollars are being invested in U.S. businesses, including those in the factory built housing sector.
