The Index Today

After the Jerome Powell speech at Jackson Hole on Friday, US stocks skyrocketed and closed at a record high. S&P 500 represented its 52nd close this year whereas the Dow Jones was up by 250 points.

Powell hinted out that the tapering process of $120 billion will be conducted separately with no correlation to rising interest rates. Interest rates are still not expected to increase anytime soon. This gives the Feds plenty of time to access the economic recovery.

–S&P 500 UP 0.88%

-Dow Jones Industrial Average up 0.69%

-NASDAQ composite up 1.23%
