US STOCK markets closed at record highs last night on the expectation of ongoing money printing from the Federal Reserve.

The government shutdown hit consumer confidence, indicating the economy may slow a little and so the Fed will keep its stimulus programme running at full tilt for longer, pumping up markets.

The Dow ended the day up 0.72 per cent at 15,680.35 while the S&P500 closed at 1,771.95, up 0.56 per cent.
