Mutual Funds Weekly: This key market indicator will upset the Dow 20,000 crowd

Don’t miss these top money and investing features:

Call it the “Trump Bump,” “Trump Trade,” “Trump train,” “Election Effect,” or just an old-fashioned year-end rally, stock buyers have responded hopefully indeed to President-elect Trump and his plans for the U.S. economy.

Yet all good things must end, especially a rally that is not rooted in fundamentals and has skeptics throwing in the towel. On cue, one closely watched market gauge now suggests that U.S. stock prices won’t keep rising for much longer. Tell that to the Dow 20,000 crowd.

Read about what the stock market’s oldest indicator is saying and decide for yourself if it’s worth watching. Then check out stories on investing long-term and whether the new administration’s policies will help or hurt the real-estate sector.
