Dow at 13,000. Biz Nets Celebrate

Last Tuesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed above the 13,000 mark for the first time in almost four years. Today, it closed above 13,000 settling at 13,005. The business networks have been keeping a close eye on that mark for the last week. “Here we go. Can we do it? Five points away,” said CNBC’s Bill Griffeth just before 4pmET.

“Wow this market is sure something,” said Bloomberg’s Trish Regan as the closing bell was rung. David Asman on FBN added, “When the bell rings, the action begins. It looks like this is going to be the first day for the Dow to settle above 13,000. ”

A broker on Bloomberg chimed in: “I’m glad we did it. Now we can move on.”
