Stimulus Shutdown Could Make July the Economic Peak: Cramer

Jim Cramer weighs in on the market and what's keeping bulls up at night.

Let's talk about the markets.

The broad S&P 500 index gained 0.23% on Tuesday to close at 3,389, breaking its pre-pandemic record set on Feb. 19. The Nasdaq also set an all-time closing high.

The S&P 500 has rallied 51.5% since March as aid from the Federal Reserve and economic stimulus from Congress fueled the remarkable rebound.

Lifting optimism Wednesday were hints from Democratic and Republican leaders that they were looking for ways to bridge the wide gap in their stalled coronavirus stimulus negotiations.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Democrats could make more cuts to their $3.5 trillion relief proposal.

And Apple in intraday trading Wednesday became the first U.S. company with a $2 trillion market capitalization.

The stock reached a market cap of $1 trillion just two years ago. It has risen around 120% in the past year.
