Donald Trump’s inauguration as 45th US President – Today, 20 January 2017.
We expect investors to be on the lookout for any comments on two key subjects: his fiscal and regulatory policies.
A confirmation that he plans to follow through with his pre-election rhetoric and push massive fiscal stimulus through Congress, as well as easing regulatory burdens, could reignite the post-election USD rally.
However, if he avoids these crucial topics once again, or if his stance towards them seems less confident than pre-election, the latest pullback in USD could continue.
