Wall Street is not getting into nearly as much trouble under President Trump as it did in the last year under his predecessor, according to an analysis by the Wall Street Journal.
Penalties levied against both firms and individuals by the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority in the first half of 2017 were down by nearly two-thirds over the first six months of this year compared to the same period last year.
So far, Wall Street has been penalized $489 million this year, compared to $1.4 billion a year ago.
