The market for US stocks has traded for nearly six years and the market is set to continue to grow at an annual rate of about 1,500%.
However, it’s not all roses and unicorns.
In fact, many analysts believe the market’s future may be even more volatile.
Here are six big issues investors are looking at in 2018.1.
The Dow is set for a historic low.
The S&P 500 index fell 0.8% on Tuesday, marking its lowest point since the 2008 financial crisis.
The stock market is currently at a record low of 1,000, the lowest since March 2008.
As of last week, the Dow was at just over 2,000.
The index is still well above its all-time low, which was hit in late 2016.2.
The Federal Reserve is keeping interest rates at rock bottom.
The Fed has kept rates at near zero for a year, and is likely to keep it at zero for the foreseeable future.
Investors will be concerned about whether the Federal Reserve can afford to keep interest rates near zero without further increases in borrowing costs.
The most recent increase in interest rates was 3.75%, the lowest rate since 2009.3.
The dollar has taken a beating.
The US dollar has lost half of its value in the past year, from a high of $1.0865 to $1,062.
In 2018, the dollar lost 2.3% against the euro, which is the weakest exchange rate since the year 2000.
The weak dollar will make it difficult for American exporters to sell their products in Europe, especially if they want to boost their sales.4.
Investors are waiting to see how US Treasury bills will hold up in 2018 and 2019.
The market’s expectation for a rate hike this year has been pushed back to the third quarter, which could make a rate increase unlikely.
However, if the US economy is expected to be stronger than expected in 2018, then there is more upside to the US dollar.
The strong dollar could allow for more US exports, which would help spur domestic demand.5.
Investors can expect a new tax on dividends.
Investors were initially worried about whether US tax rates would increase for large companies.
However the tax on large dividends is expected only to rise slightly from 20% to 25% this year, according to a recent report from the Congressional Budget Office.
This means that if the corporate tax rate does increase, then it could help offset the higher taxes on dividends for the wealthy.6.
The CBO says the US will lose up to $9 trillion in tax revenue in 2019.
In the current fiscal year, there is no tax on income above $2 million.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Officer says the tax bill would add an additional $9,400 for every $1 of taxable income.
This would increase the deficit by $1 trillion over the next decade.7.
The debt ceiling will be in place for at least a year.
The Senate has passed a deal that includes a budget hike for the next few years, with a 10-year extension.
But the White House has refused to agree to an extension on the debt ceiling, saying the president doesn’t have the authority to unilaterally raise the debt limit.
This could have a huge impact on the markets, especially in 2018 when the US has the highest unemployment rate in the developed world.8.
The Chinese economy has been booming.
The China economy is currently growing at 6.5% annually, and the Chinese government has been aggressively trying to boost the nation’s exports.
China’s exports have surged by nearly 70% from 2014 to 2018, according the latest data from the International Monetary Fund.9.
The global economy will probably contract in 2018 as the US Federal Reserve pushes interest rates further.
The reason why the Federal Bank of New York has been doing this is that it is betting that interest rates are too low, and that the US economic recovery will slow to a crawl.
The central bank’s latest forecast shows the US would have a contraction in output of about 3.5%, which would be the biggest in almost two decades.10.
The Trump administration will cut subsidies for farmers and ranchers.
The White House is expected, if not certain, to cut subsidies to farmers and small ranchers in 2018 under the 2018 Farm Bill.
The move is expected as part of a broader farm bill that is expected later this year.
However farmers and cattle ranchers have been pushing for years to get more of their subsidies.
