Trump gave the steel business (and Basic Materials Sector) a boost by signing executive orders favoring a couple of pipeline projects and requiring that pipelines use US made steel.

The American Association of Individual Investors survey for the week ending 1/18/2017 show just 37.0% bullish sentiment and 32.7% bearishness. At 37.0% bullishness it is at the lowest level in 9 weeks and similar to the November pullback before the election. These numbers are more like what you would see during a market pullback and should be considered bullish for the near term.
