The stock market’s relentless rally to records may be facing its fiercest test of late.
The Trump-fed rally in stocks, lately showing signs of faltering as the long Wall Street summer nears its end, faces a key test in the weeks ahead with the approach of a historically unkind season for equities and a clutch of issues - such as raising the debt ceiling - awaiting the return of lawmakers to Washington. With September, typically the worst month in the year for stocks, on the doorstep, investors are likely to be nervous that cracks seen in the more than-eight year bull run in equities will turn into a steeper selloff. "September is historically one of the most volatile months of the year," said Michael Purves, chief global strategist at Weeden & Co in New York.
