Stocks enjoyed a nice, broad 6% run up between election night and Trump's inauguration on Jan. 20. That's all over with.
The markets are now largely sideways, trading in a box and headed in no direction in particular, with a little light profit-taking.
But… shares are practically the only thing not moving right now; Trump is setting a furious pace.
On his first full Monday in office, we saw him taking dead aim at his stated growth, trade, and regulatory goals: He floated the idea of slashing regulations by 75% on the same day he put the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership front and center. And there are reports "Mr. Brexit" and United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May might work toward a sweeping new trade and immigration deal with the United Kingdom when they meet later this week.
