The Dow is up over 300 points this morning after hitting a new all-time high of 17,906 on Friday.
Investors are selling assets and cutting back on their spending to save up for a return to the market’s top.
The Dow has gained 1,200 points this year, a record for the Dow, according to FactSet data.
The S&P 500 index, which tracks the S&p 500 index and the Nasdaq, is down about 3% this year.
The Russell 2000, which uses different measures of investor sentiment to rank companies, is up 4% this month.
The Nasdaq is up more than 12% since the end of September.
The index for the S & P is up 9% this week.
It has risen about 50% this time last year.
A stock market rally usually leads to a stock market crash.
The price of the S.&.;amp;D.
stock market has risen almost 2% this quarter.
The average investor saved about $15,000 for the past two years, according for FactSet, but the average investor spent $30,000 this year and $45,000 in 2017.
Some analysts are betting that the market will get back on track as early as the third quarter of 2018.
“I think it is going to take a while for the markets to get back to where they were, and the markets are not going to get there overnight,” said David Rosenberg, chief investment officer at New York-based investment firm Katten Muchin Rosenman &.
Thacher &.; Feldman.
“You will have to get people to buy stocks at record highs and sell them at record lows, and I think that is the path we are on,” Rosenberg said.
The biggest reason why investors are saving money this year is the Federal Reserve’s efforts to keep interest rates near zero.
It is pushing to boost its $85 billion in asset purchases this year through 2018.
But some investors have also taken advantage of the Fed’s actions to sell assets in an effort to offset a surge in debt issuance and the economic uncertainty created by the recent election.
Investors have been taking out credit cards to pay down debt to boost their cash balances, and they have also been buying stocks for the first time in a decade.
The Federal Reserve has also reduced interest rates on its bonds, which are considered more stable than those of other countries, and is cutting back its bond purchases.
Investors say they will need to continue to buy securities as the market recovers from the market crash, which ended on Wednesday.
“The big question is, what are we going to do with the money that we are saving?” said Stephen M. Dolan, chief strategist at M&%cS Advisors in Atlanta.
“People are going to have to make more aggressive spending decisions,” he added.
“It’s going to be tough.”
Investors are also cutting back their purchases of fixed income, as the yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note rose to 2.9%, from 2.8% on Thursday.
The yield on a 30-year government bond has also risen, to 1.4%, from 1.1% in October.
The 10- and 30-month Treasury rates rose slightly on Friday, but both measures are still below levels that investors were accustomed to when the market was trading at record levels.
The bond market is the safest it has been since the financial crisis, and investors don’t need to worry about another crash as they are saving their money for a long-term return to a safer environment.
The median price of a stock was $22.30, up about $1 from Friday’s closing price of $21.92.
The market has continued to rise this year because of the Federal Open Market Committee’s decision to extend its bond buying program, which has helped push the price of bonds up more quickly than the price for other assets.
The Fed’s purchases of long-maturity debt have boosted stock prices and helped investors make money by buying bonds that have higher rates of interest than the 10- to 30-years-bond.
