Setting a Record

The Dow has done it.

On Wednesday Jan. 25, the Dow hit a record high of 20,069 amid celebration from broker-dealers and investors alike. The 20k mark is an important milestone for the industrial market index. It not only represents the U.S. economy’s turnaround following the recession, but also the wave of stock market optimism riding on President Trump’s election.

By the end of 2017, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) will open up its trading floor to all U.S. securities. Currently, NYSE restricts securities trading on the floor to the top 3,166 stocks, according to a Reuters report.

The change means that, now, up to 8,600 securities can be traded by floor brokers.

So, how does this change meet with the rising popularity of electronic trading and what does this change mean for investors?
