I have not been able to find any conclusive data regarding whether or not this rally has been all time record for the Russell 2000 Index
. Investor confidence has soared to all time highs via 3 week rally. Although I am glad to see this rise occur, I do not seem to understand the logical or fundamental justification for it. How much longer can the Stock Market ignore the carnage in the Bond Market? Because interest rates have been so low for so long, I believe that an increase in rates at this time, a time when the market has been relatively stagnant for over a couple years, will have a strong deflationary effect on the Stock Market. This December, when the Federal Reserve
Hikes interest rates, we will see whether this rally has been a genuine reflection of the supposed US recovery, or if it has simply been an impulsive pump after the election of Donald Trump. Please do not hesitate to leave your thoughts.
