The stock market continues to perform well as we approach mid-year, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite achieving new record highs, driven primarily by tech stocks and the artificial intelligence boom. However, there is uncertainty about whether this upward trend will persist. Potential factors that could halt or reverse gains include persistent inflation, which might prevent the US Federal Reserve from cutting interest rates, and potential surprises in upcoming elections that could trigger a market pullback.
