$DIA, $SPY, $QQQ, $VXX
Wall Street dipped Tuesday as investors took some profits after the record Trump Rally run, and maybe some nervousness ahead of the Key healthcare vote Thursday
The S&P 500 and DJIA put in their worst 1-day performances since before Donald Trump’s election victory in November.
The S&P Financial Index sank 2.87%, its biggest daily decliner since June.
Banks benefit from higher interest rates and their stocks are sensitive to changes in expectations of how quickly the Fed will adjust interest rates.
There was a feeling on Wall Street that the Fed was going to be more “hawkish” last week. That did not happen, taking a little out of the higher rates that the banks want.
GOP lawmakers aim to move controversial healthcare legislation to the House floor for debate as early as Thursday. Expectation are running high.
Some on Wall Street see The Trump Administration struggling to push through the healthcare overhaul as a sign he may also face setbacks delivering promised corporate tax cuts.
Expectations of those tax cuts are a Key reason for the 10% run North in the S&P 500 since his election.
The Wall Street financial sector has been the best performing of the 11 major S&P sectors since Donald Trump’s election, rising 18% on his proposals to cut bank regulations and reduce taxes.
