In One Chart: This is what happens in the stock market when the government shuts down

With the U.S. government partially shutting down over the weekend, will the stock market’s nearly uninterrupted march higher also come to a close?

The federal government shutdown is poised to stretch into a third day Monday as negotiations over immigration continued to roil Capitol Hill.

This outcome has added another element of political uncertainty to a market that already has a lot of it—most notably with tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, and with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Investors may not need to worry too much, as past shutdowns haven’t corresponded with significant stock-market selloffs.
