The State of the Market Ahead of Trump's State of the Union Speech

TheStreet's Editors reveal what they'll be watching for during the President's speech.

All eyes are on President Trump's State of the Union Speech scheduled for Tuesday evening.

"Well, [President] Trump is uniquely related to the stock market, so he's certainly not going to do anything to hurt it," said Jim Cramer when asked how the State of the Union speech could affect the markets.

"People are going to buy defense stocks, that's a mistake," said Cramer. "The Democrats in the House...even though they like defense, I don't think that they're going to be spending. And the rest, I think, is just going to be ra-ra."

So, what can we expect to hear during the speech?
