    World stocks hit new highs as trade worries ease, dollar slips

    World stock markets rallied on Thursday, with the Dow and S&P 500 setting new highs, while the U.S. dollar slipped as investors viewed this week's fresh U.S. and Chinese tariffs on imports as less harsh than initially feared. Larry Fink, chief executive of BlackRock Inc (BLK.N), the world's largest asset manager, said the United States was "a big winner" in the trade spat with China "in the short term," though not necessarily over time. The Dow industrials became the last key U.S. stock index to regain record territory, while the benchmark S&P 500 set a fresh record high.

    Dow marks first record since January in broad-based rally that defies intensifying trade clashes

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average marked its first all-time high since January, underlining the resumption of a record run for the blue-chip index that had taken a nearly eight-month pause. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index closed at a record of its own, its first since Aug. 29. The Dow rallied by about 250 points, or about 1%, to close at 26,657, surpassing its Jan. 26 record at 26,616.71. The gain for the blue-chip benchmark is notable because it has lagged behind its equity benchmark peers, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite Index , which have both put in records since the market tumbled back in February. Recent stock gains have come on signs of improving fundamentals. The S&P 500 closed at a record, up 0.8% at 2,930, while the Nasdaq finished with a 1% advance to reach 8,028. Market participants have looked beyond trade tensions between the U.S. and China to push shares decidedly higher. In the latest economic data, for example, first-time jobless claims fell by 3,000 last week, dropping to their lowest level since November 1969. Separately, the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index jumped more than expected in September, rising to 22.9 from 11.9 in the previous month. In corporate news, shares of highflying Tilray Inc. ended nearly 18% lower on the day, marking and end to a series of surges for the hot marijuana-related company, which has climbed 390% in the past 30 days, according to FactSet data.

    Nasdaq on track for best daily gain in 7 weeks amid broad stock-market rally

    The Nasdaq Composite Index Thursday afternoon was showing sharp gains, putting the index that is normally associated with the technology and internet-related industry, on pace for its best day since Aug. 2, according to FactSet data. The Nasdaq was up 1% at 8,032 and trading near session highs as the Dow Jones Industrial Average was set for its first record close since Jan. 26 and the S&P 500 index was on track for its first all-time closing high since Aug. 29. Technology and internet-related shares have lagged other sector of late, weighed by volatility in large-capitalization chipmakers, but the markets have been in a decided uptrend, of late. Investors have shaken off worries about trade spats, even as President Donald Trump earlier this week reiterated his hard-line stance on China and said the U.S. had "no choice" but to levy another $267 billion in duties on China. China responded with an announcement of 5% to 10% tariffs on $60 billion in U.S. goods. Those tariffs are set to go into force on Sept. 24. Wall Street investors, however, have instead focused on the health of the domestic economy and a strong run of quarterly earnings in the second quarter.

    Dow's 272-point surge to a record puts it on track for best day in 5 weeks

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average notched its first intraday record on Thursday, putting the blue-chip index on pace for its sharpest daily gain since mid August. The Dow was trading about 273 points, or 1%, higher at 26,677, blowing past its Jan. 26 all-time high at 26,616.71 and putting the benchmark on track for its best daily advance on a point basis since Aug. 16, when the Dow added 320 points, or 1.3%, according to FactSet data. If the Dow closes at its current level it will notably represent its first closing record in about eight months. The index's rise is part of a broad-market runup in stocks, with the S&P 500 index hitting an intraday record of its own and the Nasdaq Composite Index also trading firmly higher. Investors have shaken off worries about trade spats, even as President Donald Trump earlier this week reiterated his hard-line stance on China and said the U.S. had "no choice" but to levy another $267 billion in duties on China. Instead, the buying has been supported by enthusiasm about the health of the domestic economy.

    US STOCKS-Dow regains record territory as trade concerns ease

    The Dow Industrial Average was the last among Wall Street's main indexes to regain record territory on Thursday, as investor concerns over U.S.-China trade spat cleared away and focus shifted to the strength of the economy. The blue-chip index, which had lagged the Nasdaq and the S&P in its recovery, jumped 1 percent to surpass the level touched on January 26. While trade-sensitive industrial stocks such as Boeing and Caterpillar powered the Dow's rally, technology stocks lifted the S&P 500 to a fresh record.

    "Our general view on the trade issue is that so far it has not been economically significant," Mona Mahajan, U.S. Investment Strategist at Allianz Global Investors in New York. "Some market participants are hoping that China comes to the table and negotiates a deal, so perhaps there's a little bit more of that," Mahajan said, referring to the bullish sentiment lifting equities.

    Dow Jones Industrial Average notches first intraday record in 8 months as stock market rallies

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Thursday morning put in its first intraday record in about eight months and the S&P 500 index opened at an all-time high as well, as the stock market extended a recent rally underpinned by a healthy economic backdrop in the U.S. The Dow rose by more than 230 points, and was most recently up 0.9% at 26,638.93, surpassing its intraday record at 26,616.71, which marked the last time that the blue-chip benchmark scored a record on Jan. 26. The S&P 500 index also notched an all-time high at the 2,924.89, and was recently up by 0.6%. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq Composite Index gained 0.7% at 8,007. Although many are concerned that a full-blown trade war will become a huge headwind to global economic growth, investors have repeatedly shrugged off the issue over the past several months, choosing instead to focus on signs of improving economic fundamentals. In the latest economic data, first-time jobless claims fell by 3,000 last week, dropping to their lowest level since November 1969. Separately, the Philadelphia Fed manufacturing index jumped more than expected in September, rising to 22.9 from 11.9 in the previous month.
