A U.S. tax bill moving swiftly through Congress has influenced markets in the past month, with investors hoping that deep cuts to corporate tax rates will help further drive the record-setting run in equities.
The White House said on Thursday it was focusing on getting the lowest corporate tax rate possible in the legislation being considered on Capitol Hill.
“The focus is still on the tax bill,“ said Bucky Hellwig, senior vice president at BB&T Wealth Management in Birmingham, Alabama. ”As the details are getting hammered out, I think investors are still buying into the news that it is coming and it will help profitability and business activity.”
Investors also kept an eye on U.S. negotiations over a spending package, amid some concern about a government shutdown.
