Trump is doing an excellent job in protecting American interests and American jobs. He deserves full credit for that.
He recently increased interest rates and the markets responded positively.
Trump did not increase interest rate, the FED did
The Ballahoo Brahmin is a clown. The stock market does not react positively to an increase in interest rates.
Investors reacted positively to the news and the markets went up.
You cannot even wash my car when it comes down to investments in dollars and cents.
You begger men come here and talk farth. Money talks and BS walks.
Moron, it was not the news of the rate increase that made the stock market go up. When interest rates rise, the stock market goes down. I've been working in the Wall Street industry for decades now so a lil nincompoop like you cannot fool me about the market.

Impact of Interest Rates on Stocks
And by the way, nothing has to actually happen to consumers or companies for the stock market to react to interest-rate changes. Rising or falling interest rates also affect investors' psychology – and the markets are nothing if not psychological. When the Fed announces a hike, both businesses and consumers will cut back on spending; this will cause earnings to fall and stock prices to drop, everyone thinks – and the market tumbles in anticipation. On the other hand, when the Fed announces a cut, the assumption is that consumers and businesses will increase spending and investment, causing stock prices to rise – and the market jumps for joy.
The Bottom Line
Although the relationship between interest rates and the stock market is fairly indirect, the two tend to move in opposite directions: as a general rule of thumb, when the Fed cuts interest rates, it causes the stock market to go up; when the Fed raises interest rates, it causes the stock market as a whole to go down.
