As we head into the last weekend of 2017, the stock market continues to soar to record highs. In 2017, the DOW reached 71 new milestones, and the Russell 2000’ had 31 new highs.
As the stock market opened today the Dow saw typical gains and losses, yet was slowly rising, it was at 24,820 points at 10:00 a.m. ET, close to the new milestone; 25,000. However, as we head into a holiday weekend, it is not clear whether the DOW will top 25,000 before New Year’s.
