Today is the last day of the quarter, so now is a good time to look back. Chris Low, chief economist at FTN Financial, explains from a market perspective why we’ve been going through a turbulent, difficult time. Afterwards, we’ll examine Trump’s trade policy agenda, which includes a plan to tackle the trade deficit.
