Sustaining the ‘Trump Bump’
The Fed shouldn’t raise rates again too soon.
The S&P 500 and NASDAQ hit record highs the week of May 8, and the Dow closed over 21,000. The “Trump Bump” (as the run up in capital markets is called) remains in full force. In all, I believe the business environment will be more favorable under the Trump administration.

Irrational exuberance II: Why the Fed shouldn’t raise rates now
The Fed has all but promised to increase rates at the March meeting, and if it does, there will likely be adverse repercussions. The Yellen Fed is on the precipice of making the same mistake the Greenspan Fed did when it tried to control capital market prices by increasing rates. Greenspan had the dot-com bubble of the ’90s that he wanted to address. Remember when eyeballs on websites were more important than corporate earnings, and companies changed their name to whatever.com just so they could raise capital? Today, we have the Trump stock rally.
