Dow closes at 11th record high since election
The Dow Jones industrial index closed at another record high Tuesday, stretching a post-election rally into nearly a month of regular gains for U.S. stocks.
The Dow rose 35 points to settle at 19251.78, with investment firm Goldman Sachs posting the biggest gains.
It’s the 11th time the Dow closed at a record high since President-elect Donald Trump’s stunning election victory Nov. 8, according to CNBC.
The Standard and Poor’s 500 index rose 0.3 percent, while the Nasdaq rose 0.45 percent.
Stocks tanked during election night, but have risen consistently since, led by financial and energy stock gains. Traders are expecting a major investment in infrastructure and deregulation of the energy and finance sectors.
