Congress Stages an OPEN/CLOSED "Revolution"

It's a good thing that OPEN/CLOSED signs are double-sided and can be easily flipped.

After a 3-day government shutdown, the Senate and House passed a temporary 3-week Continuing Resolution to continue funding the government through February 8th...it's now on its way to President Trump to sign (N.B. signed later today).

So, the OPEN sign is displayed, once again, but like a revolving door, the CLOSED sign will magically re-appear if the 2018 Budget is not passed by February 9th.

Caution...more political theatrics to come! 👀




Here's how the Major Indices closed today (shaking off the political sparks)...all at record-breaking all-time NEW highs and closing highs.
