Dow Jones brød torsdag aften gennem 24.000 points. Indekset er således steget fra 5.000 points siden Trump blev valgt. Det er, uanset hvad kritikerne måtte sige, en bekræftelse på markedets tillid.

Økonomien ligger til at vokse med over 3.0 procent, det højeste i ti år. Samtidig er der næsten ingen prisstigninger.

Fresh economic data continued to suggest the U.S. economy is steadily growing, even if inflation remains stubbornly low. Americans’ spending rose again in October after rising at their quickest pace in eight years in September, the Commerce Department said Thursday. The price index for personal-consumption expenditures, the Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge, meanwhile, notched its smallest gain since July.

The upbeat economic outlook in the U.S., and overseas, as well as another strong batch of company profit reports continued to help put investors at ease with rising stock valuations, analysts said.

“The U.S. economy is growing above 3% with no inflation—what a great time to be invested,” said Michael Thompson, managing director at S&P Global Market Intelligence.

Medier og næringsliv er yderst tilbageholdende med ros til Trump. Men de stemmer på ham hver dag på Wall Street. Så langt ser det strålende ud. Opsvinget nu skyldes forventninger om, at Senatet måske allerede i natten vedtager skattelettelser på 1.500 milliarder dollar.
