The Tell: What stock investors need to know about U.S. government shutdowns
Anna Moneymaker/Getty ImagesA potential U.S. government shutdown is looming in a matter of days and weighing on risk appetite in financial markets on Tuesday. Yet history shows that they're relatively common, resolved quickly, and don't tend to keep the S&P 500 index from advancing.That's according to Brian Levitt, the New York-based global market strategist for Invesco, which managed almost $1.54 trillion as of June 30.
