This is it
This is it, ready or not, for better or for worst, today will probably mark the beginning of a new geopolitical landscape era, with Donald Trump being sworn in as the 45th President of the United Estates. Uncertainty is the key, if not by anything else, by the simple fact that its the first time in history that there is a U.S president without any prior political experience whatsoever. In Wall Street, after an unexpected and strong upswing following the elections, investors are welcoming the transition of power with much more caution, this week the U.S markets have been slow trending and the Dow Jones, the Bulls champion of the last leg of the rally, scored five consecutive days of losses, small ones, yes, but nevertheless its a different sentiment.
From Davos, billionaire investor George Soros, sent a gloomy message, he said the market will fall under Trump, Theresa May won´t be in power for long and Europe could disintegrate if the bloc doesn't address its problems. On Tuesday Scotland’s first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, signaled that due to May´s decision of leaving the E.U common market, a second Scottish independence vote is very likely. Also important for the next months, from France, a Le Monde poll showed that Marine Le Pen, which has vowed to take France out of the Euro if she wins, has taken the lead for the first round of the upcoming Presidential elections, so as i mentioned before its bound to be, at least, a very interesting and volatile year for the markets, caution with leverage is warranted near and at important political or economic events.
