The Dow Jones industrial average for the first time in its long history closed above 15,000 points on Tuesday:
The Dow increased by 87 points to 15,056 points Tuesday, yet another milestone in the market’s rapid ascent in 2013.
“Two months ago the Dow recovered the last of its losses from the financial crisis. So far this year it’s up 15 percent,” the Associated Press notes.
“The Standard & Poor’s 500 rose eight points to 1,625, also a record close. The Nasdaq rose four to 3,396, or 0.1 percent,” the report adds.
