The U.S. – going for gold again

It’s a marked reversal from February this year when markets fell sharply on fears of a global recession. All three major U.S. stock indices reached new records on Thursday. The Dow Jones Industrial closed at 18613, the S&P 500 at 2185 and the Nasdaq at 5228. The tech-oriented Nasdaq was the only index to continue its gains into Friday.
