Stocks reach new all-time high, despite Trump’s trade threats and Fed criticisms

(Worthy News) – Stock markets hit a new all-time high Tuesday as they approached the longest bull market in modern history, despite President Trump’s recent statements on trade and monetary policy that have unnerved some business leaders.

The S&P 500 reached 2,873.23, just beating the prior record of 2,872.87 set in January. On Wednesday, the bull market, meaning the time without a major downturn, will have officially run 3,453 consecutive days, a streak stretching back to March 2009.

The high came despite Trump rattling things by slamming the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates and the administration barreling ahead toward escalating its trade dispute with China by placing 25 percent tariffs on an additional $200 billion of Chinese goods.
