THE Dow Jones Industrial Average soared to an all-time record high on Tuesday, passing the five-year-old mark to leave behind the deep losses of the economic crisis.
At the closing bell the Dow was up 128.02 points for the day, a 0.91 per cent gain, to 14,255.84, easily beating the former closing record of 14,164.53 set on October 9, 2007.
