Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Stocks were little changed Tuesday after President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. would pull out of the Iran deal championed by his predecessor, Barack Obama,” said Fox Business.

According to Trump, the deal allowed Iran to continue developing nuclear weapons, and he called the country the “leading state sponsor of terror,” per their report.

President Trump added that “we will be reinstating the highest level of sanctions.”

Stocks were lower immediately before Trump’s announcement, with the Dow down by about 60 points. They turned mixed in the aftermath of Trump’s comments, with the Dow swinging between gains and losses,” per their report.

If the president is as successful with this move as it appears he has been with North Korea, it could end up a net boost to the economy, although there is certain to be some related turbulence ahead.  Stay tuned.
