Dow notches longest quarterly win streak in 20 years
The stock market, undaunted by monster hurricanes, political tension and North Korea threats, keeps climbing to new heights.
The Dow soared another 5% during the third quarter, which ends for Wall Street on Friday. The strong gains extend the Dow's streak of winning quarters to eight. It's the longest since an 11-quarter boom that ended in September 1997, according to FactSet stats. Back then, the U.S. economy was going gangbusters under President Bill Clinton at the start of the dotcom boom.
