Stocks Rise Despite Rising Interest Rates
The Dow Jones Industrial Average has had its best two-week performance since February. Deciphering the reasons for the rally is difficult. It could be a sign that investors remain unconcerned about trade wars and inflation. Or it could be a preference for high quality dividend stocks over fears that interest rates are going to continue to rise.
Many investors are concerned about past market turmoil in September and October, for example October 1929 and September 2008. But while these have hardly been outstanding months, on balance they perform okay and occasionally produce very strong gains.
