    They're calling this the Trump Bump. Of course what goes up must come down.

    You got four good hours before you have to contact medical professionals. Make the most of it.

    I'll always remember what I was doing when it broke the 20,000 barrier... eating a slice of smoked-turkey while channel-flipping. I only checked one stock; Wells Fargo. It's up 13-bucks since the worst scandal in its history at the beginning of Autumn. Thanks, D.

    The Dow Jones average is the oldest and best-known barometer of the U.S. stock market. How well you know it:

    1. When was the Dow Jones industrial average first published?

    2. What’s the lowest recorded closing level for the Dow?

    3. Has the Dow always had 30 stocks in it?

    4. What’s the Dow Jones industrial average named for?

    5. Which company has been in the average from the very beginning of the Dow Jones industrial average?

    6. What year did the musical comedy “How Now, Dow Jones” open on New York’s Broadway, and what was the plot line?

    Answers:

    1. May 26, 1896.

    2. The lowest point on record for the Dow is 28.48 on Aug. 8, 1896.

    3. No. The first version of the average contained 12 industrial stocks, including U.S. Rubber, American Sugar and American Cotton Oil.

    4. The average was created by Dow Jones & Co., which was founded by Charles Dow, Edward Jones and Charles Bergstresser. Dow Jones & Co. also founded the Wall Street Journal.

    5. General Electric.

    6. The Tony Award-nominated musical played 220 performances starting in 1967. The story follows Kate, who is frustrated because her fiance will only marry her once the Dow crosses 1,000 points. (That didn’t happen until 1972.)

    Damn. I flubbed every question.

    I should've gotten number-5 right. I simply forgot.

    Same with number-4. I'd forgotten their first names and completely forgot about the third founder.

    Well, it's been known for a while now that screwing consumers is pretty SOP. Getting caught a paying tiny amounts in fine for the fraud is just the cost of doing business.
