I think that is something the bond market is going to have to pay attention to.”

The problem with Trump is just the level of uncertainty. With Hillary, I think she’s more practical. She’s not going to try to put Glass-Steagall back together again. She’s not going to try to dismantle Dodd Frank,” said Valliere.
