    How investors should think about Dow 30,000

    The Dow’s journey to 30,000 has been nothing short of remarkable.  It’s the latest milestone in a post-election rally that’s been fueled by promising results from three potential COVID-19 vaccines.    "The idea that we're hitting Dow 30,000 in a pandemic year, the same year where it almost hit 18,000, is utterly outrageous.” Oanda analyst Craig Erlam told the Wall Street Journal  The blue-chip index flirted with 30,000 in February, then the pandemic hit. In March, with much of the U-S in lockdown because of the virus, the Dow fell below 19,000.  Since then, the index has soared more than 60%, setting multiple records along the way. The Dow is now on track to close out its best month since 1987.
