Can US stock markets continue to defy gravity? – Special Report

Posted on April 19, 2019 at 1:19 pm GMT

US equity markets have been on a tear in 2019, reclaiming lost ground to come within breathing distance of their all-time highs. The rally has been fueled mainly by the Fed putting its rate-hike plans on ice, though easing trade tensions and corporate buybacks helped as well.
