    Earnings season will kick into high gear today with the release of multiple reports from three of the nation’s top financial institutions. JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM), Wells Fargo & Co.(NYSE: WFC), and Citigroup Inc. (NYSE: C) will all be in the spotlight today. U.S. President Donald Trump could be shaking up trade policy. However, it isn’t NAFTA or tariffs with China that are headlining the story. According to reports, Trump has requested his advisors explore American reentry into the Transpacific Partnership (TPP). President Trump pulled the United States out of TPP shortly following his inauguration. The recommendation comes after lawmakers from ag-producing states discussed the impact of leaving the deal with the administration. The decision to reenter the TPP would be very valuable to states that produce the bulk of U.S. wheat given that it would allow exporters to avoid tariffs of $65 per tonne to Japan, which is the largest export market for American wheat. Leading nations of the pact, such as Japan and Australia, reacted coolly to the president’s pivot but did not rule out the possibility of American reentry. Facebook Inc.
