DOW 26,656 AND CLIMBING …
Today the DOW closed at 26,656 for a new all-time high. The previous record was set in January 2018 at 26,616. Simply amazing! Yesterday the DOW reaches its 100th all time high since candidate Trump was elected President. The DOW is up almost 8800 points since Trump was elected. You might want to remember this bit of good news and what it has done for the economy and your 401k’s before you cast a vote in this November’s midterm elections. Its up to the American people if you want Anti-Trump, Resistance Democrats to control the power in the House of Representatives and Senate and watch all these economic gains come crashing down.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at a record high on Thursday, its 100th record close since Election Day 2016. The stock market index has been propelled higher by economic optimism and tax reform, which have boosted companies’ earnings.
The S&P 500 closed at a record for the 89th time Thursday since the election, and numerous S&P 500 component stocks set records. Shares of companies in various sectors of the economy set records on Thursday, evidence that the strong economy is benefiting many industries.
Remember when Donald Trump was elected on 11/4/2016 the DOW was 17,888 and down some 700 points. All of the LEFT know-nothings, Never-Trumpers and Left-wing media pundits said Trump would crash the economy and the stock markets. The same know-nothings and Leftist hacks said Trump’s tariffs would crash the economy and stock markets. They could never have been more wrong.
