The latest political developments have already put The Trump administration on the defensive and market participants around the globe are more worried as for his ability to push through previous proposals on tax cuts, infrastructure spending and also deregulation.

The news that ex-FBI Director Robert Mueller is about to act as special counsel to oversee a federal investigation into hypothetical Russian interference in the US election didn’t manage to relive market jitters.
