Mid-morning jitters gave way to a solid afternoon rally with volatility inching lower. Stocks rallied into the bell, extending the rally into the after-hours session, and finished at a new all-time closing high. Tomorrow we will see a half-day of trading ahead of the Fourth of July holiday. It will be great to fire up the grill, throw back a few brews and talk about the record stock market.
