>> The Trump victory parade continues on Wall Street Tuesday, with the DOW closing above the 19,000 mark, for the first time ever. I'm Conway Gettinson, New York investors continuing to go on the buying spree, with the DOW, the S&P 500, and the NASDAQ all at record highs.
Now, the buying momentum is hinged on three things, although we still haven't received any new information from the incoming Trump administration. Number one is the belief that the Trump administration is going to fuel economic growth through infrastructure spending. Number two, by lowering taxes, and also by less regulations, specifically when it comes to healthcare and financials.
One other thing to note is that the market is now pricing in a 100% chance of a Federal Reserve Rate Hike in December which means that the market is growing more comfortable with the idea that the economy might get going, and that will mean higher interest rates. Now, just to give you an indication of how strong the buying momentum is, volumes are pretty steady even though we're in a holiday shortened week.
We do expect trading volumes to taper off as we head into Thursday, and into a half day session on Friday.
