3 months ago, for day 1 by Yorick Phoenix 🏆

Anybody looking at the US Stock Market for 2019 would assume that it has been a bumper year. Articles like this one on CNBC would enforce this idea. Looking at the S&P 500 Index for the year it definitely looks impressive. Starting the year at $2,510 and ending at...
