The Dow hit another record high Monday as investors still expect President Donald Trump will provide businesses with tax cuts.
Investors continue to pile into equities and new records continue to be set each day in the wake of President Trump’s election.
Despite the big gains today – ones that saw the S&P 500, Nasdaq, and Dow Jones all hit new all-time records – we did see a small uptick in volatility.
The CBOE Volatility Index – largely considered the market’s fear gauge – climbed over 2% today.
Let’s look at the numbers from Monday for the Dow, S&P 500, and Nasdaq:
Dow Jones: 20,412.16; +142.79; +0.70%
S&P 500: 2,328.25; +12.15; +0.52%
Nasdaq: 5,763.96; +29.83; +0.52%
Now, here’s a look at today’s most important market events and stocks, plus a preview of Tuesday’s economic calendar.
