Great Expectations

Are you excited?
Are you chomping at the bit?
Are you having a hard time containing yourself?
Are you filled with dread? Biting your nails to the quick?
It all depends on what side of the line you’re standing on…
With the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States – many investors can’t wait for January 3rd– when Wall Street crawls out of it’s holiday hibernation and roars back to life.
However, there are other people freaking out – hoping the policy changes that Trump has planned don’t leave them holding the bag.
I wish I had a crystal ball to tell me that 2017 was going to be the best year ever – and that investors will be rolling in profits…
Well, I’m not a wizard – nor do I believe in THAT kind of magic anyway – but what I do have is the power of the internet at my fingertips, which gives me access to hundreds of other financial experts that have the time to analyze more information than I do.
That being said, after reading through some of the more trusted opinions, it has only added to my optimistic outlook for the upcoming year.
According to a Market Strategist Survey conducted by CNBC, 13 strategists are predicting that “U.S. stocks should rise slightly in 2017 as equities benefit from tax cuts”.
The financial outlooks published since the U.S. election have found that the median 2017 S&P 500 price target is 2,325 – or roughly about 3% from where it’s been trading towards the end of 2016.

This has been the trend, though…


Since President-elect, Donald Trump, won the election, U.S. stocks have soared – as day traders and regular investors alike seem to be counting on increased growth from Trump’s planned tax cuts and promises to rebuild the American infrastructure.


Not only that, his rallying cry of “deregulation” may have many people who have stayed out of the trading pool for the past 8 years, testing Wall Street’s waters once again.


Sooooo, take that for what it’s worth. But…


With what I’ve seen going on in the markets since the election, I have to tell you… I’m pretty optimistic myself.


Many experts expected the “Trump Surge” to die off fast…


But it didn’t. In fact, one could argue that it’s still going pretty strong. That’s one of the many reasons I find myself pretty excited about the upcoming year.


However, that doesn’t mean I won’t be exercising caution when it comes to revealing my recommendations for GorillaTrades.


Any new pick will have to meet the GorillaTrades system’s strict technical requirements…

But I have no doubt that I’ll be able to find a few hidden gems that’ll give us the chance to make a hefty profit.


I’m already eyeing a few – and I’d love to have you with me and my subscribers on our next one.


Either way…


I’m expecting good things from the markets this year – and you should too.


Just don’t trade recklessly…


That never turns out well for anybody.
