Breaking News: Dow, Nasdaq, S&P Stay on Record High Closing Streak

Stocks climbed Monday, with the Dow reaching a record high, as investors prepared for an important week for inflation-related economic data releases following the weekend passage of President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion infrastructure bill.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 105 points, or 0.29%, to 36,433, while the S&P 500 advanced 0.16%, and the Nasdaq gained 0.24% at last check.

“The stock market kicked off November the way it wrapped up October — with bulls in charge,” said Chris Larkin, managing director of trading, E*Trade Financial. “Boosted by a vote of confidence from the Fed, the S&P hit new record highs each day to log its strongest week since June and sent small-caps higher.”
