Historic Winning Streak for US Stocks as New Limit is Broken on Friday

New York’s stock markets closed on Friday with the S&P 500 rising 22.5 percent over the past 15 weeks, marking a historic increase. This index describes the price development of the 500 most important companies in the United States. According to Dow Jones market data, the S&P 500 index has risen in 14 out of the last 15 weeks, with the last time it saw a similar winning streak being in 1972 during Richard Nixon’s presidency.

Investors are inspired by potential efficiency improvements in companies brought about by artificial intelligence, and have been encouraged by improved earnings from large technology companies. The US central bank has stopped raising interest rates, creating an expectation of future interest rate decreases.

The Nasdaq Composite index has seen a similar rise for 14 weeks out of 15, and the Dow Jones DJIA has only had such a long rising period 14 times since its establishment. The stock exchanges have confirmed these improvements in company earnings and investors are excited about what they see as a bull market.

Despite this positive trend, there are some concerns about inflation and trade tensions that could impact economic growth in the future. However, for now, investors remain optimistic about the state of the economy and continue to invest heavily in US stocks.
