The US stocks are ending the session mixed.
- The Dow closed up 227.74 points or 0.5% at 27088. The index breached the 27,000 level for the first time ever and makes the close a record
- The S&P index closed up 6.82 points for 0.23% at 2999.89. That was good enought to take out the record close of 2995.82. A bit of a disappointment is that the high today could not take out the high from yesterday at 3002.88, and the index failed to close above the 3000 level.
