The bull market is still running, but some experts say the end is in sight. At the same time, many investors see the stock market’s record breaking streak as the sign of a resurgent American economy, including President Donald Trump. To many partisans, Wall Street’s performance is a strong endorsement for the fledgling administration’s promised tax cuts and reduced regulations. New Highs in the DOW It is true that the stock market has ...
