  • Bull run can charge through Trump but not forever

    Wednesday’s sharp fall in the S&P 500, as the political storm around US president Donald Trump’s links with Russia intensified, has not turned into a market rout... yet. Equities bankers, indeed, are convinced it is a blip, saying investor appetite for stocks remains strong.
