Top Trading Links: President Trump, Brexit, And Life Lessons

Aaron Jackson

It was a big week for stock market bulls, as the S&P 500 Index jumped 2.3% in the last full week of trading in May.  Was that the last hurrah for the bulls? Will “Sell in May” work this year?

With the June Fed meeting on tap and the Brexit vote coming up, things could get interesting. But until we actually see a decisive breakout (or breakdown) in the price action, we’ll just have to build our individual cases for stocks and the market.

It’s an interesting time to be trading and investing in the markets. Current monetary policy and this years’ presidential election should be enough to convince you of that. The election hoopla has been pretty crazy, as both Trump and Clinton come with plenty of “noise”. The coming weeks may require seat belts (in either market direction).

We cannot take anything for granted.  This week’s “Top Trading Links” offers some spectacular holiday reading.  Dig in!
