My Worst Trade. I was really bullish on the US dollar. I had done all my usually homework. Deep fundamental analysis. Sophisticated technical analysis. I had a plan that was dynamite! How could it go wrong? Famous last words. I was sitting and staring at the screen waiting for a big news item. Tick tick tick.

For the first time in over 100 years, we will have two candidates who are not in favor of free trade. Both Hillary and the Donald believe that other countries are taking advantage of the US. They both want to through up high tariffs and duties. The Donald will renegotiate with everyone and, of course, it will be beautiful and great after he is through negotiating. Hillary will just hit a giant reset button. Oh wait, that didn’t work in Russia. This is hurting the stock market right now. The market believes that free trade is good for the global...
