Stock Markets Are Record-Bound; Marijuana Stocks Soar

Tuesday morning brought fresh new record highs to parts of the stock market, and it even sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI) past a key milestone. After having encountered amazing volatility throughout 2020, investors now seem ready to put the year behind them and focus on the promise that 2021 will bring. As of 11:45 a.m. EST, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI) was up 470 points to 30,061, which would be enough for a new record if it finishes the day at that level.
