Hallelujah: S&P 500 Reaches All-Time High
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The S&P 500 hit a new all-time high on Thursday, reaching 1,565.40. The index's previous high was 1,565.15, set on Oct. 9, 2007.
With its all-time high, the index shrugged off concerns posed by the reopening of Cyprus' banks and softer-than-expected U.S. economic data.
The S&P has gained 134% since hitting its five-year low in March 2009. The market's bull run has been bolstered by the Federal Reserve's bond buying program and historically low interest rates.
