“Investors continue basking in the afterglow of US tax reform assuming there will be no end to this unstoppable run, which is now feeding off US domestic economic strength and a stronger global growth narrative,” said Stephen Innes, head of Asia-Pacific trading at Oanda.

“As we enter earnings season, the fear of missing out mindset takes hold, but if the markets remain at this pace, we could breach my 2018 year-end global stock market forecast before the end of February, which will for once leave me honestly lost for words.”
