Market Update - August 2018


Trump’s trade wars became more real and the ranting intensified but investment markets have, so far, taken it in their stride, as they have all of Trump’s previous shouts of protest, threats and actions.  The key takeaway for us from all the more recent twittering etc. is he has now publicly criticised the Fed, and therefore by implication its new leader Powell, for raising interest rates.  He now doesn’t want a strong dollar as he has realised this is actually bad for the economy and therefore his popularity.

This stance is, unsurprisingly, opposed to his comment in January “ultimately I want to see a strong dollar”, but then relentless contradictions seem to be the norm for his administration.  The strong dollar effects and weakening in the economy might come too late for the mid-terms in November but could prove a major factor in the next US election outcome in 2020.
