Dow Tops 20,000; Trader Says the 'Trump Trade' Is Back On

Here's what to watch for next now that the Dow has crossed the 20,000 threshold.

History was made at the New York Stock Exchange on Wednesday, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed 20,000 for the first time ever.

So where does it go from here?

Keith Bliss, senior vice president at Cuttone, said Dow 20,000 is an important benchmark, and explained why it's important to watch what happens with the Russell 2000. He said an advance in small-cap stocks would be bullish for the market overall. Trump's pro-growth policy looks like it is helping the markets, Bliss said, and he declared the "Trump trade" back on.
