Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


Fox Business Networks’ spotlighted this discussion about the emerging reactions on Wall Street to trade and tariff disputes.

Markets closed up, even though the Iranian sanctions have now kicked in.

President Trump tweeted that “The Iran sanctions have officially been cast. These are the most biting sanctions ever imposed, and in November they ratchet up to yet another level. Anyone doing business with Iran will NOT be doing business with the United States. I am asking for WORLD PEACE, nothing less!

There’s speculation that Germany may be moving to work with Washington, but limiting access of Iranian assets moving through their banks.


FBN says that Iran shipped out almost 3 million barrels of crude per day in July. Sanctions on Iranian oil exports will take effect in November.  That would send oil prices higher.

Unrest in Iran is on the rise, and while the Trump Administration has said they are not seeking regime change, there are numerous unknowns about what President Trump and Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin discussed.  Would it be a surprise if the Islamic state was part of the calculus for that meeting?

If they’re playing poker, senior Trump Administration officials are playing it like Cool Hand Luke. The signals are they expect a few weeks to months of tariff and trade tensions.  But the Oval office has said and signaled that they expect to win at the end of this process. With markets rising again, investors seem to be gaining confidence that the White House is getting it right.
