timFun fact of the day:  Going back to 1953 and President Eisenhower, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has averaged +2.68% during the first 100 days of a NEW President.  President Obama’s first 100 days saw a +2.76% rise in the Dow, and President Bush’s first 100 days saw a +1.39% rise in the Dow.  Not something to hang your hat on, and we’ll have to see what happens with President Trump, but just a fun fact nonetheless.
