All three major U.S. benchmarks were in the green Tuesday morning as surges in bank stocks led U.S. markets near record territory once again.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit a new intraday record of 19,987.63 on Tuesday, and the blue-chip index moved closer to reaching 20,000 before the new year commences. The Nasdaq Composite Index and S&P 500 were also up. With little economic data between now and the end of the year, the markets are unlikely to take any unexpected swings.
