Dow Hits New High – AGAIN

Before he was elected, the Democrats predicted economic doom under trump. The truth is, if Hillary had been elected, there would have been a downward turn instead of the incredible performance we are seeing here.

The market continued its climb into record territory on Friday, as declines in health care stocks were offset by gains in technology, consumer discretionary, and industrial company stocks. The gains came a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed above 27,000 points for the first time, per the AP. On Friday, the Dow rose another 243 points, or 0.9%, to 27,332; the Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 13 points, or 0.4%, to 3,013; and the Nasdaq rose 48 points, or 0.5%, to 8,244.

Investors remain focused on the Federal Reserve. The Fed is expected to cut its benchmark interest rate later this month for the first time in more than a decade to help counter slowing growth. Investors have bet heavily that the Fed is moving that direction, moving stock and bond yields higher in the last two weeks.
