How will President Trump's tax proposals affect stocks and bonds? What about the dollar and gold?
Jim Cramer sat down Wednesday with four great experts for a roundtable discussion on Trump, taxes and investing as part of TheStreet's monthly Trading Strategies series:
Cramer spoke with:
- Stephen "Sarge" Guilfoyle, equities expert. Guilfoyle is the founder and president of Sarge986 LLC, a family run trading operation. A New York Stock Exchange floor trader for over 30 years, he previously served as chief market economist for Stuart Frankel & Co., U.S. economist for Meridian Equity Partners and as a vice president in block trading and investment banking with Credit Suisse. Guilfoyle earned his nickname by serving as an actual sergeant in reserve components of the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army while simultaneously working on Wall Street.
