Why a Trump Impeachment Wouldn’t Derail This Bull Market
(Bloomberg) -- On What’d You Miss This Week, Scarlet Fu, Joe Weisenthal and Caroline Hyde spoke with Nick Colas, Co-Founder of DataTrek Research about the drastic forecast that came out of the Oval Office this week. President Trump told Wall Street you’re going to miss me when I’m gone and predicted a market crash if he was impeached. Could an impeachment really derail this historic bull run? Colas explained how market conditions in 1974 when President Richard Nixon resigned provided a "very different backdrop than what we have today."
Josh Ginsberg, the co-founder and CEO of Zignal Labs, came on to discuss their work helping companies to fight back against bots online. Social media disinformation campaigns upended the 2016 presidential election, but Ginsberg explained how the corporate world is under attack too. Nefarious motives are not limited to politics, and Zignal Labs has seen social media weaponized to manipulate stock price and damage corporate reputations.
