by on January 16th, 2004

Not in 21 months has the Dow Jones industrial index been so high. It broke 10,600 today, rising almost 50 points by closing time.

The Dow Jones industrial average was up 46.66, or 0.4 percent, at 10,600.51, a new 52-week high. It was the index’s highest close since March 19, 2002, when it finished at 10,635.30.

The Nasdaq also experienced gains today.

The Nasdaq finished up 31.38, or 1.5 percent, at 2,140.46, eclipsing the previous 2 1/2-year high reached Monday.

With economic indicators such as these, Democratic strategists are going to have to work overtime this Nov.
