Trump Conference squash investor hopes: What is next?

Trump first press-conference after his election November was a sheer disappointment for investors. He was talking about various issues but ignored main topics that worried investors – fiscal stimulus plan and taxes. As all previous Dollar and stock rally has been fueled by his rampant campaign promises further clues on US economic expansion by extensive spending should have been key driver  for growth. But lack of confirmation triggered the rout on markets with US Dollar  index dropping from 103+ levels to 100.70 on Thursday:
