The Dow Jones yesterday broke through the 20,000 level for the first time in its 131-year history. That's up 9.5% since 8th November, one of its biggest ever quarterly rises, as President Trump demonstrates that he is going to practise exactly what he preached on the campaign trail, having already effected various 'crowd-pleaser', like the ending of Obamacare, exiting from the TPP while pressing the starting gun to build The Wall. So, the question that is now on the lips of investors worldwide is what is the next big stop? Will it be 25,000 or will it be 15,000? That's altogether a more tricky question. Let's assume Trump is an unstoppable train who, without looking over his shoulder, simply presses ever forward with his 'Trump Trade Doctrine'; a singular ambition to ensure that any action or deal must be designed to increase the American growth rate, decrease the trade deficit and strengthen the US productive base. For a country whose manufacturing exports make up only 6% of GDP, protectionism is not such a dirty word, even if the rhetoric 'America First' reads like a declaration of economic warfare. Whatever the wider global ramifications, near-term at least it would be hard for US-operating businesses, basking in the US$'s exception strength, not to enjoy significant benefit and the Dow to bound forward accordingly. The price that has to be paid, however, could be felt first in the form of an inflationary shock, forcing a less-than-obedient Fed to impose much higher rates on the nation's significantly indebted population. Beating up Mexico and China also carries a cost, given estimates that the two of them together account for a quarter of US trade, which in-turn affects as many as 5m private sector jobs should a full trade war commence. Ignoring WTO rules also stands to destroy the very institution that provides an essential framework of stability for the real world, to be replaced instead with a free-for-all. No country, however big, can prosper in such circumstances and, indeed, a period of global unrest could even result which would, of course, absolutely savage international equities. The world sincerely hopes that Mr Trump does recognise that he is playing with fire! More immediately, of course, the party continued this morning, with Asian equities led by the Nikkei strongly ahead as the Yen weakened marginally against the US$, with the highly international Hang Seng also tracking US euphoria while the Shanghai Composite put-in only a fractional gain with traders gossiping about Trump's prospective trade impositions and China reported dull December industrial profits growth. London this morning will be seen to join the celebrations, with the FTSE-100 seen rising some 15 points in early trade, although investors will be hoping some positive gestures can emerge from Theresa May's visit to the White House scheduled for tomorrow. The UK is scheduled to provide BBA Mortgage Approvals data, GDP preliminaries and the CBO Distributive Trades Survey this morning, which will be followed this afternoon by a large batch of US macro numbers, including Initial Jobless, Trade Balance, January PMI and New Home Sales. UK corporates due to release earnings or trade updates include Angle (AGL.L), Daily Mail & General Trust (DMGT.L), Diageo (DGE.L), Sky (SKY.L), Unilever (ULVR.L) and Whitbread (WTB.L).
