|Data for week commencing 16 July 2018|
Positivity remains for stocks with the two big drivers of US share prices - earnings and the economy - prevailing, despite another controversial week for President Donald Trump. At home, our market keeps defying gravity.
The S&P/ASX 200 climbed 23 points (or 0.4%) to 6285 on Friday for a 0.3% advance over the week. Yep, it’s not convincingly positive but we have had a great run since June and this is the old “sell in May and go away” time period for stocks.
