etf
From Sanghamitra Saha: This year, biotech stocks have seen their best-ever start to a year since 2012. A solid merger-and-acquisition momentum has been instrumental in this rally. The announcement of the mega-merger deal between Bristol-Myers (BMY - Free Report) and Celgene CELG at the beginning of 2019 has set the space on fire. Bristol-Myers has offered $74 billion to take over Celgene.

us government
From Sanghamitra Saha: The partial federal government shutdown is now officially the longest on record; having turned 24 days on Jan 14. It has now topped the 21-day closure during the Clinton administration that began in December 1995. No progress in passing a spending bill, wherein Trump demanded funding for $5.6 billion for a border wall that is being opposed by the Democrats, is mainly the reason for the shutdown.

Must-See ETF Areas in relation to President Trump

From Sanghamitra Saha : In President Trump's two years of office, U.S. markets have been soaring thanks to his series of reformative initiatives. While the first year was all about the Trump bump and reflationary economic measures, the second year i.e. 2018 can easily be accredited to his protectionist agenda or trade war tensions.
