Stocks ended in positive territory as stocks rebounded from steep losses on Monday. When reading the above CNBC article, I came across the following quote regarding the current uncertainty Wall Street faces,“The reason we’re seeing this recovery is because fundamentals haven’t changed,” said Kevin Miller, CIO at E-Valuator Funds. He noted the U.S. economy remains strong. “That being said, we are going through something that we’ve never gone through before,” Miller said. “This China trade agreement issue is changing investing into something more like speculating because no one knows what direction this thing can go.”
