Here is a breakdown of how the markets have performed as U.S. President Donald Trump enters his third year in power.

With a mix of issues such rising rates and an ongoing trade feud with China dragging the markets down and sparking a late selloff at the end of 2018, it has erased some of those gains.

Nevertheless, it has been clear a recovery is taken place, but a current fear of an economic slowdown is making the forecast look rather difficult to read.
