7:18 pm
mark: i think they are all minor with donaldared trump. clearly the u.s. is still be stock in the world. in his speech, what he does on monday, those are all important things. absolutely, with yelling, we have more clarity on rate. they will go up. with the british, there will be a hard exit. i think we already knew these things before. yvonne: when it comes to the class, what will happen with the dollar, you have the fed wanting to raise rates, donald trump with these policies that could continue dollar appreciation. then, he had a comment about the dollar being too strong. can he have both worlds here? should we start pricing in risk? mark: usually when government officials want a currency to do
7:19 pm
something, it does the opposite. the reason he is saying the dollar should not go up is because there are lots of reasons it should. make america great again, and a weak dollar, they do not go together. yvonne: how much of a low could we see in terms of u.s. markets? what will happen? will it be the first hundred days where you will see this inflation intact? mark: i don't think he will go play golf on monday. i think he will come out guns blazing. the big thing is the taxes. the market could be poised to take another like up -- leg up. i'm optimistic on both. yvonne: a stronger dollar, does this mean that news?

7:22 pm
those don't do well in a rising rate environment. if you look back 10 or 12 years, what does well is financials. the margins of the bank expands. it is the sign of a healthy economy, etc. what else is there to say? what about in terms of the headwinds. i think we're hearing more about the rhetoric when it comes to trade policies. when we do hear things like labeling china a currency manipulator, or he drops tpp. our markets here in asia more vulnerable? mark: i think you are right. the major risk in the world is china and the u.s. are going at each other like this. . think it will be like that i did not see that coming went
