U.S. Indices Kept Flying Higher In Penultimate Session Of The Year

On Wednesday, the penultimate session of 2020, the New York Stock Exchange advanced, with the Dow Jones index closing at a historic high and other big indices reaching theirs. As a part of the latest assistance package in the United States, and through the coronavirus vaccine program, investors continue to expect a solid economic rebound in 2021. The dollar dropped to a two-and-a-half-year low, a bout of weakness that supported oil and gold prices, buoyed by revived risk aversion.

The Dow Jones index rose 0.24 percent to 30,409 points at the close, just 6 points above its previous record on Monday, and after reaching to a session high of 30,525 points. The S&P 500’s large index advanced 0.13% to 3,732 points (3 points below its Monday high) and the Nasdaq Composite Index, rich in electronics and biotech companies, rose 0.15% to 12,870 points, finishing at 0.2% below its Monday high of 12,899 points.
