2. Stocks set another record. The champagne's still corked. -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks are back at a record. Don't feel excited? Neither does Wall Street.

After a shaky few months, the stock market has pushed through worries about President Donald Trump's trade wars, weakening corporate profits and the slowing global economy to set another all-time high. The S&P 500 closed Monday at 3,039.42, eclipsing the previous record set on July 26.

3. Uncertainties escalate for Fed as it weighs another rate cut -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve finds itself in an unusually delicate spot as it considers how much more to try to stimulate an economy that's still growing and adding jobs but also appears vulnerable.

4. Zuckerberg defends Facebook's currency plans before Congress -

NEW YORK (AP) — Bank of America's third quarter profits fell 19% from a year ago as the bank wrote down the value of its long-time joint venture payment processor First Data.

Excluding that non-cash charge the bank topped expectations, though it's being pressured by falling interest rates.

6. AP analysis: Wide gaps in legal protection of LGBT workers -

Rumors started circulating around the fire station in Byron, Georgia, within a year after the medical treatments began. The fire chief's once-crewcut hair was growing longer, and other physical changes were becoming noticeable. Keeping quiet was no longer an option.

7. Fed plans more Treasury purchases to control lending rates -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve said Friday that it will buy short-term Treasury bills each month until the second quarter of 2020 to inject cash into the banking system and make it easier to control overnight lending rates.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve plans to continue pumping money into a crucial corner of the financial markets that banks and others use for short-term loans but that has suffered recent shortfalls.

9. Stocks drop again to worst loss in weeks on economy worries -

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks tumbled again on Wednesday as worries about a weakening global economy boomeranged around the world.

For a second straight day, the S&P 500 dropped to its worst loss in five weeks. The latest wave of selling came after a report showed hiring by U.S. companies slowed more than economists expected last month, with mining and manufacturing particularly weak. It added to worries that shook markets a day earlier, when a reading on U.S. manufacturing showed the sharpest contraction in a decade.

10. Stocks sink as US manufacturing shrinks again amid trade war -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks sank to their worst loss in five weeks on Tuesday after a surprisingly limp report on the nation's manufacturing stirred worries about the economy's strength.

The report showed that manufacturing weakened in September for the second straight month as President Donald Trump's trade war with China dragged on confidence and factory activity. It dashed economists' expectations that August's contraction had been an aberration, and stocks and bond yields immediately reversed course to drop sharply lower following the report.

11. Stocks climb as markets cap turbulent quarter with calm end -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks climbed on Monday and gave one last nudge to ensure the S&P 500 emerged from yet another tumultuous quarter with a modest gain.

As has been the case throughout the quarter, movements in President Donald Trump's trade war with China helped drive the market on Monday. Investors found encouragement after China said that its top trade negotiator will lead talks with the United States that are expected to take place next week. The Trump administration also calmed some worries that it may limit U.S. investment in Chinese companies.

12. AP FACT CHECK: Trump untruths on Ukraine, impeachment fight -

WASHINGTON (AP) — A whistle blew, an impeachment inquiry swung into motion and the president at the center of it all rose defiantly to his own defense, not always in command of the facts.

A CIA officer, in a complaint filed under federal whistleblower protections that preserve anonymity, alleged President Donald Trump abused his office in pressing for a Ukrainian investigation of a Democratic rival, Joe Biden. That revelation persuaded Democrats to move ahead with an inquiry that could produce articles of impeachment. Trump has reacted with anger, with weekend tweets that made the groundless accusation that Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, the Intelligence Committee chairman taking the lead in the impeachment review , criticized him "illegally."

13. Fed announces plans to provide more support for repo market -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Federal Reserve says it will keep pumping cash into a vital but obscure corner of U.S. financial markets in coming weeks.

The New York Federal Reserve Bank, which handles the central bank's interactions with financial markets, said Friday that it will offer daily repurchase or "repo" operations of at least $75 billion through Oct. 10. The aim is to maintain the Fed's key policy rate within its target range.

14. Stocks sink then recover after Fed cut -

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks are rebounding at the close of trading, led by banks and big tech names, after the Federal Reserve delivered an expected cut in interest rates.

Stocks initially fell after the Fed announcement, after the Fed showed its members are divided about the upcoming path for interest rates. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped as much as 210 points

15. US stock indexes edge up as oil gives up half of its spurt -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock indexes ticked closer to record heights on Tuesday, but the modest moves belied plenty of churning underneath.

Oil prices and energy stocks slumped to give back nearly half of their huge gains from a day earlier. Rising prices for technology stocks and companies that sell to consumers, though, more than made up for those losses. Treasury yields fell a second straight day as the Federal Reserve opened a two-day meeting on interest rates, where investors expect it to announce a cut for the second time in as many months.

16. AP FACT CHECK: Trump myths on economy, Dems' selective facts -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The country described by the Democrats running for president is mired in child poverty, riven with economic unfairness and broken in its approach to health care, crime and guns. The country presented by President Donald Trump is roaring and ascendant , shattering all economic records for performance.

17. How much do Trump tweets swing the market? Check "Volfefe" -

NEW YORK (AP) — Financial markets have become so in thrall to President Donald Trump's tweets that J.P. Morgan has created an index to help identify how much volatility they're creating.

Strategists at the bank developed the "Volfefe" index by measuring which Trump tweets triggered big movements in Treasury yields, one of the world's most closely followed markets.

18. US stocks' mixed finish nudges S&P 500 to a 2nd weekly gain -

Major U.S. stock indexes finished little changed Friday after a day of mostly quiet trading capped the S&P 500's second straight weekly gain.

The market shook off an early stumble thanks largely to gains in health care stocks, makers of consumer products and retailers. Technology, communications and utilities stocks fell, as did bond yields and gold prices.

19. A slowdown in US business formation poses a risk to economy -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite a decade-plus of economic growth, Americans have slowed the pace at which they're forming new companies, a trend that risks further widening the gap between the most affluent and everyone else.

20. AP FACT CHECK: Trump's illusory claims of gains from tariffs -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is painting a false picture of a U.S. economy unaffected by his trade war with China and other countries.

He describes a blue-sky world in which rapidly escalating tariffs have no impact on American consumers even as a raft of businesses and economists say otherwise, chastising those who caution of potential weakness in the economy as partisans.

21. The bond market smells recession as global stress rises -

NEW YORK (AP) — Compared to the free-swinging and sometimes emotional stock market, the bond market is supposed to be the sober and measured one.

It's getting more alarmed.

Bonds sounded their loudest warning bell yet of recession on Wednesday, when the yield on the 10-year Treasury briefly fell below the two-year yield. Such a thing is rare: Investors usually demand more in interest for tying up their money in longer-term debt. When yields get "inverted," market watchers say a recession may be a year or two away.

22. Why many employees feel devalued even in booming job market -

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Ken White had a good job at a credit card processor for 22 years, but he was laid off in the Great Recession.

Today, at 56, White does similar work. Yet everything feels different. He's a contractor for a technology services firm that assigns him to manage tech projects for a regional bank. He's paid just two-thirds of his old salary. The bonuses and stock awards he once earned are gone.

23. Why a US-China deal that once looked close now seems far off -

WASHINGTON (AP) — A deal seemed so close.

As recently as May, the Trump administration and China seemed on the verge of resolving their dispute over Beijing's combative trade policies.

Then it all collapsed. A cease-fire, declared by Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping in June, failed to stick.

24. S&P 500 plunges in worst loss of year as trade war escalates -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks pushed to record heights Friday following strong profit reports from Google's parent company, Twitter and other big corporations.

A government report on Friday also showed that U.S. economic growth slowed in the spring, but it was still better than economists expected.

29. Stocks hit record highs as investors reward solid earnings -

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks steadily gained ground Wednesday and closed broadly higher on Wall Street as investors rewarded solid earnings results from several large companies.

30. Stocks close higher following solid earnings results -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks marched broadly higher on Wall Street Tuesday as several major companies reported solid second quarter gains.

31. Technology shines on an otherwise sluggish day for US stocks -

NEW YORK (AP) — Tech stocks were the standouts in an otherwise sluggish day of trading on Monday, as investors gear up for the arrival of the heart of earnings reporting season.

Apple, Intel and several chip makers jumped more than 2%, and technology stocks in the S&P 500 climbed 1.2%. But the other 10 sectors that make up the index were evenly split between gainers and losers, and none moved by more than 0.5%.

NEW YORK (AP) — The major U.S. stock indexes closed at record highs on Friday, with the S&P 500 ending above 3,000 for the first time. The market was driven higher by technology, consumer discretionary and industrial company stocks, which more than offset the drop in drugmakers.

42. AP FACT CHECK: Trump distorts census, Obama-Biden record -

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is stretching the truth in his legally questionable bid to get a citizenship question added to the 2020 census.

43. S&P 500, Dow industrials and Nasdaq close at record highs -

44. AP FACT CHECK: Trump on NKorea, wages, climate; Dem misfires -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Straining for deals on trade and nukes in Asia, President Donald Trump hailed a meeting with North Korea's leader that he falsely claimed President Barack Obama coveted, asserted a U.S. auto renaissance that isn't and wrongly stated air in the U.S. is the cleanest ever as he dismissed climate change.

45. Stocks close out rocky quarter with gains -

47. Trump says he 'made' Fed Chairman Powell -

56. The bond market is getting another whiff of a recession -

NEW YORK (AP) — The scent of a possible recession is wafting through the bond market again.

Bonds are supposed to be the boring corner of the finance world, but even high-flying stock investors stop and pay attention when they fall into a particular, concerning pattern.

It's been a relatively reliable predictor for recessions, though not a perfect one, and it's happening again.

61. Retirement planning warning: Income will likely peak in 40s -

On the way, though, it took investors on a terrifying plunge of nearly 20%, amid worries that the economy would tip into recession.

68. Health care companies lead US stocks lower; small-caps slump -

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stock indexes took a round trip Monday, erasing their early-morning losses to end the day close to where they started.

72. Slower manufacturing likely drag on small business optimism -

NEW YORK (AP) — The growing evidence of a slowdown in manufacturing is likely contributing to the dip in small business optimism that began early in the year.

Reports this month from the government and an industry group point to a drop in manufacturing activity. While the manufacturing sector is a relatively small part of the gross domestic product — the government has estimated it at 11.4 percent in the third quarter of last year — most manufacturers are small businesses as are service companies that do business with them.

73. Potential recession signal: A key 'yield curve' has inverted -

U.S. stocks indexes barely budged Thursday as the market's three-day winning streak stalled.
