Sectarian violence in Iraq has escalated to the point that the U.S. military may get involved. The Federal Reserve continued to “taper” back its monthly bond buying. Projections for U.S. GDP growth in the second half of 2014 aren’t as optimistic as they once were.
All of those sour news items dominated the headlines this week. How did the stock market respond? By rising to yet another all-time high, of course.
If ever there was a week that proved just how impenetrable this market rally is right now, this was it. The S&P 500 advanced another 1.5% to close the week above 1,960 for the first time ever. Neither the threat of a third U.S. intervention in Iraq nor signs of a slowing U.S. economy could dampen the bulls’ spirits.
