Wall Street: STOCK MARKET
Since the Trump victory on November 8, 2016 Wall Streets Stock and Bond Markets have reacted favorably. Basically, this is because of the Trump Stimulus Plan for the USA. In the final analysis Wall Street ended on a upswing for the last 2 months of 2016. To date the FED Interest Rate Hike has only affected the USA Real Estate Markets.
THE GLOBAL MARKET
The Global market is volatile and flat. Currency yields are only worth what a perspective buyer will pay.
The Federal Reserve Board Democratic Appointee Janet Yellen, Chair has again gone back on the FED's position on the USA economy. The Fed raised the Prime Lending Rate December 14, 2016 to 3.75%, by adjusting the Federal Funds Rate up a +1/4%. When this occurred in December 2015 the Stock Market Crashed and Real Estate Market went under water -7.1% in February 2016. The FED's Rate Increases has again suppressed a emerging growth Real Estate Market in the last quarter of 2016. The emerging First Time Home Buyers
declined, back into their shell by December 2016.
The Inflation Rate for the USA for the month of November, 2016 is +1.69%. Annual Inflation Rate for the USA is +1.19% from January 1, 2016 to November 30,2016. Courtesy of RETVNews.
The actual Average Annual Inflation Rate at this time based on the last 4 year history has never reached 2.0%. The FED indicated Mid Year 2016 they would not increase interest rates unless the USA Inflation Rate reached 2.0%.
A FUTURE FINANCIAL OUTLOOK
The Nationwide Real Estate Interest Rate Hike imposed by the FED in the last quarter of 2016 and mid-December 2016 has again suppressed the First Time Home Buyer that had begun to emerge after 4 years. More of the Real Estate Market may continue to be suppressed by the current administration.
Mortgage Interest Rates are up about 3/4% in the last four months. A 30 year fully amortized mortgage loan is at about 4.25% plus cost of closing, to the average home buyer today. That is up from 3.5% from in August 2016.
It appears, that the current Obama Administration, has utilized the Government Conservator-ship leverage, over Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, that has been under control of the administration since 2008, to curtail any 2016-2017 Real Estate Market Recovery.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are the two largest Mortgage Banks in the USA.
REAL ESTATE FUTURES - The Prime Rate
As the USA Real Estate economy tries to emerge the FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD and current Obama Administration continues to suppress the growth of "The American Dream" and America's economy as a whole, to its end in office.
Is the worst is yet to come? Yes.
Janet Yellen, the FED Chair, a Obama Democratic Appointee has indicated that the FED will move to increase Interest Rates Three Times in 2017. This attempt may be a crashing blow to the new Trump economy as it tries to emerge.

USA NEW ADMINISTRATION: 2017
Trumps biggest problem with the USA economy is yet to be seen by the American people.
The out going Obama Administration during its term has installed key socialist personnel, as they forcasted that Hillary Clinton would carry the Democratic Socialist Plan forward. These personnel blocks will slow the end result that Trump wants to accomplish quickly to give the USA people some relief from the depression like conditions, Americans have been experiencing for the last 8 years.
The Democratic Socialist Party is within the Democratic Party itself which has two viewpoints.
Now there is the Democrat Bernie Sanders approach. It appeared that Sanders was burned by the Democratic Socialist Party, Clinton/Obama during the campaign. None the less Sanders caved in on all his principles to the Clinton campaign at the end. That is what Clinton counted on.
Sanders views are a little more parallel with that of President Elect Donald Trump. Simply put Sanders wanted to double the minimum wage for Americans.Sounds good but in the final analysis who can afford to pay it when you already have a Country that is in a depression according to the numbers.
Trump professes that the USA economy needs a internal Stimulus Plan. Trump is looking to American Company's to begin producing American products again and the unionizing of help resulting in higher wages.
Let's simply look at what Trumps results could be to each American per each:
+280.00. Inflation at 3.5% over 8 years
$1280.00 Earnings in 8 years
$500.00 Expenses for the $1000. Earnings
+140.00 Inflation at 3.5% over 8 years
$640.00 Expenses in 8 years
+$13,440. End Game per $1000.00 of Income
Benchmark for Real Estate Appreciation 7.5% Annual
$100,000 Home Value 1/1/2017
$178,347 Estimated Value 1/1/2025
+$78,347 End Game Per $100,000
Real Estate Invested
$100,000 Stock Market Investment
$152,308 Yield Estimated at 5.4% Annual
+$52,308 Per $100,000 Invested in the Mkt.
+ $5,230 Per $10,000 Invested in the Mkt.
It's all good in theory once Trumps gets the Democtratic Socialist Blocks out of the way. That could take 6 months to 2 years.

The Real Estate future in America is -7.5 percent below the historic national annual average benchmark before 2009,
Low interest Rates have been keeping the Home Sales Markets in focus since 2015.
The Real Estate Markets may de-stabilize again with more Prime Lending Rate increases, because qualifying for a home loan or a commercial loan will become more difficult for the borrower and Home Prices will be driven lower.
Consumer confidence is not expected to increase in the Major Markets from the impact of this type of FED action.
