Data for week commencing 07 January 2019

Three hours out from the close, Wall Street was heading for its first negative trading session in six days and while the concern level wasn’t intense, for the first time since it started, the US Government shutdown was mentioned as a worry.

Right now, the closure of government services has dragged on for 21 days and will soon beat the record held by Bill Clinton’s administration from 1996!
