DC Talk vs. Action

************************************************* Profit from the Pros ** Tactics that Work in Good and Bad Markets ** ************************************************* The first 100 days of a new administration are critical. That is when we see their key initiatives. Right out of the gate the Trump administration has been busy with proposed changes to healthcare, trade policy, taxes, regulations and more. However, that is all just talk. What matters is action. As in, what policies can they actually get passed through Congress? Yes, it helps that both the House and Senate are Republican controlled. But to say that all Republicans are all on the same page is not true. So there are still many compromises to be made before final legislation gets enacted. Unfortunately investors hate this form of uncertainty, which explains why stocks have not been able to advance for more than six weeks. As clarity emerges on these policies, so too should the next round of stock market advances. That is just a matter of time. So I still recommend that investors get their portfolio prepared for that next surge higher.
