Before & After, developed in partnership with Refinitiv, looks at the upcoming events and announcements that will shape your investment portfolio. In this episode, Johanna Botta talks about the surprises that occurred during the Iowa caucus. The uncertainties that the Democratic primaries are currently posing could provide a profitable, short-term trade for the U.S. Dollar once the New Hampshire primary results roll in.
Then, she discusses the NFIB index and how the last reading came in lower than expectations, but still hit historical records. If the new reading comes in strong, small-cap stocks may experience a rally. Finally, in the After section, she reviews the US jobs numbers.
