It’s finally here, the inauguration of President Trump. With the event and the transition of power taking place today, investors will finally see exactly what the incoming administration will do. So far, they aren’t impressed. The last few weeks have been trending lower, as the euphoria of his surprise win has faded. The so-called Trump Bump has officially deflated. Stocks spent much of the shortened trading week mixed and trending lower.
