Dow closes over 15,000 points for the first time
NEW YORK- The Dow Jones industrial average has hit another milestone: its first close above 15,000.
The Dow rose 87 points to 15,056 points Tuesday, a gain of 0.6 percent.
Good economic reports, higher corporate profits and support from central banks have eased investors' concerns that another economic slowdown could upend the market.
Two months ago the Dow recovered the last of its losses from the financial crisis. So far this year it's up 15 percent.
The Standard & Poor's 500 rose eight points to 1,625, also a record close. The Nasdaq rose four to 3,396, or 0.1 percent.
