American equities are set for fresh records in continued tax-driven soar

On Tuesday, American stocks were set for an upbeat trading day, a day after reporting records all around on ascending expectations that the highly anticipated tax bill will face its final signoff this week.

Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average YMH8 acquired 0.2% hitting 24,877, thus indicating another winning day for the blue-chip benchmark. By the way, on Monday, the Dow DJIA concluded at all-time maximum, which is its 70th record this year, beating the 69 records hit in 1995.

As for futures for the S&P 500 index, they gained 0.1% trading at 2,697.75, while futures for the Nasdaq-100 Index NQH8 soared 0.1% reaching 6,543.75.

On Monday, both the S&P 500 SPX as well as Nasdaq Composite Index COMP concluded at records.

Expectations that the Republicans’ key tax overhaul will be passed before Christmas spurred stock markets around the globe and it appeared to a key driver for Tuesday’s actions.
