The Stock Market continues to set records and landmarks in 2018. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) surged Thursday eclipsing the 24,000 mark for the first time. Surpassing 20,000 on January 25 earlier this year, the market had an over 300 point boost on Thursday with renewed optimism that the new tax reform bill in Congress will pass, according to businessinsider.com. Casey St. Henry of Thrivent Financial in Sturgeon Bay says despite the growing markets, investors should consistently invest regardless of a bull or bear market.
St. Henry recommends meeting with a financial professional and having a well-thought-out plan before investing in the stock market. The Dow Jones closed at 24,272.35 on Thursday which reflected a 1.39% increase.
