The S&P 500 rose on Tuesday, stopping just short of ending its longest stretch without a closing record in two years. Signs of a buoyant labor market, strong consumer spending and extended corporate-earnings growth have helped U.S. stocks edge higher over the summer, even as worries about trade negotiations and fading growth in China cast a pall over major indexes elsewhere around the world. If the S&P 500 closes above the level, it will have cleared what some investors say has been a black mark for the stock market—reassuring those who have worried that a monthslong stretch without a new high pointed to broader weakness in the market.
On Wednesday, barring a crash, this bull market will become the longest in the history of the S&P 500, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices. Stocks have been rising steadily, without the 20% decline that conventionally defines a bear market, since March 2009—making this bull run about to exceed the nearly-10-year stretch that ended in March 2000. After returning more than 400%, including dividends, since this bull market began, U.S. stocks aren’t cheap.

Meanwhile, Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on Tuesday was found guilty of eight criminal counts, including five counts of tax fraud.
You don't get to be the longest bull market ever, 3,453 days, without doing a lot of things right. The main thing you have to realize when you analyze a bull market is that it climbs a wall of worry, a wall so high, with so much barbed wire and cut glass at the top, that it's almost too daunting to believe. From the very beginning of this bull market, when the S&P 500 was at 666, it just hit 2,872, there was - and still is - rampant disbelief in stocks.

The widely followed S&P 500 (.SPX) stock index rose as much as 0.57 percent on Tuesday to 2,873.23, putting it above its previous record high of 2,872.87 on Jan. 26, although it failed to close above that high.

The yen and Treasuries climbed after President Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer pleaded guilty to federal charges, weighing on U.S. equity futures. News of Michael D. Cohen’s plea deal sparked mild demand for haven assets and sent U.S. equity futures lower after American stocks closed at a fresh all-time high. “Some folks are going to tie it back to Trump and the fact that he’s probably not walking as clean a line as they would like to see coming from the president,” said Gary Bradshaw, a portfolio manager at Hodges Capital Management in Dallas.
