New ‘Trigger’ smart phone app alerts when Donald Trump tweets about stocks you own

Well, here is an innovative idea.

Some industrious techies have created an app that will alert you if President-elect Donald J. Trump starts tweeting about your stocks!


The president-elect has already made major changes in the business world here in the U.S. simply by tweeting about one company or another and his penchant at dealmaking to bring jobs to the country has some investors jittery. Enter the new app “Trump Triggers” to let you know if Trump is talking about a company in which you have invested, The Hill newspaper reported.

“This trigger gives you the ability to trade stocks based off of Trump’s tweets about public companies. This one-of-a-kind trigger notifies you when President-elect Trump tweets about a publicly traded stock that you own in real-time,” the app’s website explains. “These triggers can help you capture moves or manage your holdings based on the market’s reaction to the future President’s remarks.”

“While it’s no surprise that Trump has been actively tweeting since the election, no one anticipated that a single tweet could potentially eradicate billions of dollars in market cap from large companies,” the site continues.

Or, a tweet might possibly have the opposite effect.

Indeed, Trump has made major changes in the U.S. economy just by making a few tweets.

Already a growing list of U.S. companies canceled plans to build manufacturing plants in foreign countries and have announced plans to re-invest in the good ol’ U.S.A.

The latest is hand tool and power tool-maker Stanley Black & Decker which just reported it is changing plans to enlarge manufacturing overseas and will now open new plants in America, according to Breitbart News.

The tool-maker is hardly alone. Just this week Ford Motors also announced plans to re-invest in manufacturing facilities in the U.S. instead of enlarging capacity in Mexico.

And Trump had already made big news with new investments in America being announced by companies such as SoftBank, Carrier, US Steel, IBM and others.
