The market either doesn’t care about the shutdown, or, think’s the shutdown will be resolved quickly. I have no real idea which one actually pertains. Probably no-one else does either. What it has meant however is that some [traders] have got caught on the wrong side of this, and therefore the market may well continue higher. I don’t see resolution of the problem being couched as bad news with the market trading lower, but if the shutdown persists, we might see a change of market sentiment.

I’m sure you are none the wiser than before you read this.
