US: Dow jumps above 19,000, extending post-election rally
[NEW YORK] The Dow jumped above 19,000 in opening trade Tuesday for the first time as US stocks continued to rally after Republicans swept the November 8 presidential and congressional elections.
The Dow got as high as 19,007.81 shortly after the opening bell.
All three major US stock indices closed at records Monday in anticipation of pro-growth policies under President-elect Donald Trump and congressional Republicans.
Six minutes into trade, the Dow was at 18,992.23, up 0.2 per cent.
