Dow Jones hits 23,000 for the first time in United States history

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Today was a monumental day in the world of stock as as we saw numbers that have not been seen before. History was made as the Dow Jones crossed the 23,000 mark for the first time in history. This happened just two months after they hit the 22,000 milestone. Local financial planner Jeanne Fisher tells us not only is this an exciting day, but it is also a sign that the economy is heading in the right direction.

"Part of the reason why the Dow Jones has done so well today is because earning reports from the top 30 companies in America actually exceeded analyst expectations," Fisher said. "So it truly is a reflection of a positive economy also."

She also gave warning of a potential fall in stocks since it is up so high, so advises caution when going to invest.
