Stocks are falling this morning on signs that a worsening political situation in Washington may lead to a government shutdown next week.
S&P 500 futures are off about 0.4 percent, while most of Europe is down about half a percent. Most Asian markets posted small gains in the overnight session.
The S&P 500 has been trending strongly higher all year and is now attempting to hold support near the top of the price range that’s taken shape since May. While it’s recently benefited from an improving global economy, uncertainty has been increasing in the United States.
