The markets have largely rallied since the November election result, and managed to squeak out a minor gain for the week after President Donald Trump’s inaugural speech Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI) and S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC) rose 0.48% and 0.34%, respectively, for the week.
“Trump has made it clear that as early as today, and certainly by Monday, we’ll see actions in terms of the executive orders that will set the tone for the administration and convey his priorities. If we don’t get anything dramatic in the address, we’ll get it soon,” said David Joy, chief market strategist at Ameriprise Financial, according to MarketWatch.
