We’re just six short days away from the inauguration of the 46th president of the United States, and while investors are trying to prepare for it as best as they can, they could be in danger of taking on too much risk in their trading portfolio.
And no one in Wall Street can accurately predict the avalanche of events that will unravel once America says hello to their new president…

The S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 and the Russell 2000 are all performing at levels that look good on paper… but things aren’t as great as they appear.
Between stimulus checks and forbearance and corporate financial aid, the government has taken a good amount of sting out of the financial consequences for things like not paying your rent or mortgage. And now there’s the promise of another $2,000 stimulus check coming soon.
But will those things continue? If they do, we’re looking at some massive inflation at an alarming rate.

If you mix all of that together, you have a recipe for disaster in the housing market.
That’s just the beginning…
Think about it: Dozens of companies could fall because of a crashing housing market — roofers, concrete workers, painters, drywallers and construction workers, to name a few.
