Smart investors don't trade on tweets. They know that markets are affected by many variables that we can't predict.
Don't Get Your Stock Tips From Twitter
Is there a measurable Trump tweet effect on stocks? Sometimes.
Positive or negative publicity can affect a stock's price. The president's tweets may cause short-term volatility in stock prices, but much of that may be attributable to the headlines generated by media coverage.
Over the long term, the stock market tends to mirror underlying economic fundamentals; however, in the short term, markets can turn on a dime, reacting unpredictably to a wide variety of events, including a tweet, off-hand remark, or media headlines.
Smart investors don't focus on what happens in the minutes and hours following a presidential tweet. They keep their own goals in sight and focus on a solid financial strategy for the months and years that follow.
