Dow Jones breaks 20,000 for first time ever.

The Dow Jones crushed the landmark 20,000 boundary interestingly on Wednesday as idealism about Trump’s star policies helped monetary markets. The index ascended by as much as 155.80 points to 20,057.89.
“In and of itself, it is just a number,” said Quincy Krosby, market strategist at Prudential Financial told AP. “But what it does is it lifts market expectations, in essence, to continue moving higher.”

U.S. President Donald Trump has taken off orders upsetting Obama strategies consistently this week, including moves to haul out of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and a move to ease administrative burdens on businesses.
“Trump’s been on the job for five days and he’s a man of action,” said Brian Battle, director of trading at Performance Trust Capital Partners in Chicago told Reuters. “That should get everyone confident he’ll get those three other things done … which is taxes, trade and regulation.”

Part of that is a so-called “Trump bump” as investors digest the reality of a new pro-business president, he said.
