In the first hour of the weekend edition we are focusing on a number of different markets with an overall theme on the optimism that investors hold since the election. We will touch on the potential of a rising interest rate environment, agricultural commodities that investors are largely ignoring, the depressed VIX and resource stocks that are being shunned. Currently everyone is focused on the US markets and in full belief Trump will spur growth. Optimism is good but sometimes it can blind people.
