Market Volatility Expected Ahead of President Trump’s Speech

On Tuesday, February 28, at 9:00p.m. EST (4:00a.m. Wednesday, March 01, Server Time, GMT+2), President Trump will address a joint session of Congress for the first time since taking office.

In a speech that will be watched by millions of viewers in the United States and around the world, the President is expected to speak of his presidency and address pressing issues like his plans for health care, the tax system, the military, and his goals for his administration.

President Trump’s speech and his remarks are expected to cause much volatility in the financial markets.
