Where do we go from here?
The Dow’s new high is really nothing more than a symbolic marker that we’ll focus on for a day or two before we move on. The bigger story is just how far we fell and how far we’ve come in the last three years. This is a once-per-generation bull market, and if growing profits and growing consumer confidence are any indication that more highs are ahead of us.
