Dow 12000!!

As the title suggests, the Dow broke 12000 for the first time today. I didn't have to get into work until late today, and my plan was to watch the news channels until until the record was set or I absolutely had to leave. I didn't have to wait long. The market opened above 12000.

Rebecca Gomez was doing the morning stock market report. Hearing such good news reported by such a pretty lady was a lovely way to start the day.

I switched over to CNBC's Morning Call to see if they had something to say about it. One of the commentators said the reaction to the record opening was a bit muted and that in general the reaction was not as enthusiastic as one might expect.

"No big deal" seems to be the consensus.For instance, the AP headline was that the Dow closed below 12000, not that it opened above.  That's fine with me. Everyone who downplays the stock markets impressive returns just adds another brick to the wall of worry.
