So what exactly changed following Trump's Election Day win?
Investor sentiment has shifted dramatically, writes Hedgeye CEO Keith McCullough in this morning's Early Look. "Looking back at the score (so far), there’s towering evidence that this #TrumpTrade is real," McCullough writes. U.S. economic data, from Consumer Confidence to Retail sales, is accelerating. That's pushed the S&P 500 up 7 of the last 8 days.
