Stock Markets like to be able to predict what the economy will be like for the next 3 or 6, or n months ahead. The pundits like to have some certainty, about things such as election outcomes, the passage of certain bills, among other "indicators" of future prosperity. Uncertainty is not welcome, so how would you say the current levels of uncertainty, doubt, outright fear or even terror, about what's ahead for America and its economy (and by extension us poor suckers in the rest of the world), are affecting market trends and predictions? How much does Wall St influence politics anyway? Put it this way, how many rich Americans will be happy if Trump stays president, however he wrangles it? If they start to see their wealth diminish and blame him, what do you think could happen?
