U.S. equities closed at all-time highs on Wednesday after a series of executive orders from President Donald Trump increased bullish sentiment on Wall Street, while financials outperformed. The Dow Jones industrial average broke above 20,000 for the first time, rising about 150 points as Boeing, Goldman Sachs and IBM contributed the most gains. "People are seeing that the administration is carrying through with some of the things they promised," said John Stadtler, head of U.S. Financial Services Industry Practice at PwC. "It looks like long-term capital gains are here to stay."

That's great news, especially if you're already wealthy.

The wealthiest 1% of Americans own 35% of all stocks.
The wealthiest 5% of Americans own 66% of all stocks.
53% of American households own no stocks whatsoever. sad smilie

In the summer of 1929 stocks were at an all time high. All based on speculation. In octiber stocks were selling at 20 cents on the dollar.

Again, watch what you look for
Go to history

And TRUMP just got richer.
