The latest UBS Investor Watch Pulse Poll found that 71 percent are more optimistic about the 10-year economic outlook than they were just two months ago when it was still a high 68 percent.
And, said UBS, 78 percent believe the economys fundamentals are strong, and 75 percent said they expect to reach their long-term goals.
The 12-month and shorter outlook has sunk to 38 percent, down from 61 percent in November, said UBS....Despite that, investors see it as a temporary lull because 95 percent said that they are sticking to their investment plan.
Businesses, meanwhile, remain positive, though slightly less than they were a few months ago.

Shut. It. Down. Sure is sad it takes a really bad crisis for people to start respecting White Men. Hope nuthin’ really bad happens. 9-11 was bad enough.

Its funny how the common sense business practices, increased competition and a fairer trade situation can improve an economy.
“Proof is in the pudding”.... as is said.
True......and we know that Trump told all at the rallys if Dems control the house what the next two years would be like.
