Dow Jones over 14,000
The Dow Jones industrial average closed above 14,000 on Feb. 1 for the first time in more than five years.
It was just a number on a board, but it was enough to raise the hopes of some investors and cause others concern about an oberheated market.
The Dow Jones industrial average, a stock market index that is traditionally considered a benchmark for how the entire market is faring, has been rising fairly steadily. As of Feb. 1 it was just 155 points from its all-time record close.
