President Trump has been promising to Make America Great Again for over a year, and now that he’s in office, he’s finally doing it. Since he took office, the NASDAQ and the S&P have been on record-high closing streaks, and this weekend was no different.
The Nasdaq composite climbed one-third of a percentage point, hitting intraday and closing records. Shares of Amazon rose 2.6 percent.
The S&P 500 also closed at a record high of 2602.42, a 0.21 percent gain. Shares of retail giants like Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Kohol’s all rose. Shares of Target fell.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.14 percent, closing just short of its record high.
U.S. stock markets closed early Friday for the Thanksgiving weekend.
Investors have a lot to be Thankful for this year given the post-election boom in stocks. The Dow is up by around 31 percent since election day 2016, the Nasdaq by more than 36 percent, and the S&P by almost 25 percent.
