On the heels of a stunning GOP victory by President Elect Donald Trump, the U.S. major indexes have been on a tear, thrashing all-time highs during this proclaimed “Trump Rally”. Alongside the DOW, S&P 500 & NASDAQ lies the US Dollar Futures Index (DX) flirting with records of its own as Wall St. embraces the pending changes at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
While the US Dollar Futures Index is trading at highs last seen in April 2003, Gold Futures is on a sharp decline, trading at is lowest levels since June 2016.
