Dow Closes Above 11,000 for First Time Since September 2008


The Dow Jones industrial average closed above 11,000 points on Monday for the first time since the start of the financial crisis.

The move above 11,000 was the latest milestone in a rally that has brought Wall Street back from the brink of economic collapse.

It came as investors welcomed a long-awaited rescue plan for Greece and amid signs that American companies were poised to report strong first-quarter profit, with earnings season beginning in earnest this week. The Dow ended the day at 11,006.19, rising about 9 points or 0.08 percent. It last closed about 11,000 in September 2008.
