Tuesday’s session on Wall Street set new records for the S&P 500 and Nasdaq. The New York Stock Exchange has been in a frenzy for months, investors are buying stocks at record high prices, not looking at ridiculously high valuations.

Tuesday’s session didn’t bring anything out of the ordinary – after all, only this year the S&P500 has improved its historical record in more than 50 sessions. This was also the case this time. After an increase of 0.15%, the S&P500 index registered at 4,486.23 points. So the 4500 point level is at your fingertips. However, we started 2021 at 3,765 points. And with growth at this pace, the S&P500 will reach 5,000 points in just over half a year.
The Nasdaq Composite has not fared much worse, only rising this year by more than 16%. On Tuesday, the Nasdaq broke the 15,000-point barrier for the first time in history, up 0.52%. The Dow Jones industrial average was slightly weaker, growing just 0.09% and not improving the latest record.

Jerome Powell may suggest limiting the asset purchase (QE) program, which has been speculating in the markets for several months.
Meanwhile, the strong Wall Street boom continues in the US housing market. According to the US Bureau of Censorship in July The average price of new homes in the United States reached a record high of 390.5 thousand. dollar. This is 18.4% more than last year.
