Why stocks keep moving higher. And higher. And higher

Sharing is Caring!


Why do stocks continue to rise in the face of anxiety about the coronavirus? Ongoing support from the Federal Reserve, a stable outlook for corporate earnings and fear of missing out may have something to do with it.

The latest: The Dow finished the week up 1%, while the S&P 500 closed 1.6% higher. Both indexes hit all-time highs mid-week. The STOXX Europe 600 index rose nearly 1.5% after climbing to a fresh midday record on Friday. Even the Shanghai Composite managed to lodge a 1.4% increase for the week.
