Once again this morning the Dow is taking a run at the elusive 20,000 number.
The Index closed just 25 points below the seemingly difficult number to overtake in quiet pre-Christmas trade yesterday and is hovering around those levels this morning.
Investors say that breaching 20,000 would allow the current Trump rally to continue.
The Dow, founded in 1892 and today the composite of thirty leading American Industrial stocks, first hit 10,000 back in 1999, with other milestones in January 1906 when the average first breached 100; November 1972 when it first moved over the magical 1,000.
The largest one-day gain for the Dow was 936 points in October of 2008, coming off the lows of the great recession, and the biggest one-day loss was also in 2008 in September when the Dow plunged 777 points.
