Report summary

During his pre election campaign and again during his victory speech President elect Trump has made bold statements about investment in US infrastructure. Promises to fix infrastructure in dire need of an update have rallied the market. We have seen a surge in share and raw materials prices and an overall improvement in sentiment. Commodity market participants want to understand if this optimism is grounded in reality or just wishful thinking particularly with regards to steel and iron ore.We believe the overall impact will be small but in this Insight we attempt to quantify it.
