This time last year, Donald Trump was named President Elect of the United States of America. This news sent the Australian share market into an apparent “free-fall” and at the time, the media was scaremongering and indicated that a massive $35 billion had been wiped off the share market.

However, in the 12 months since the 9th of November 2016, the Australian market has been steadily increasing to a total change of 17.31%.


The American market has also been sharply climbing with an impressive 27.65% change.

This proves that ignoring the white noise and focusing on your long-term plan, such apparent disastrous slips and falls in the market will eventually get smoothed out.
