Dow Industrials Reach 2009 High

The Dow Jones Industrial Average leapt to a new 13-month high Monday as investors grew more optimistic about the continued flow of easy money to support economic recovery. The Dow climbed 203.52 points, or 2%, to end at 10226.94 -- its highest finish since Oct. 3, 2008 and the second 200-point gain in three trading days. The blue-chip measure has risen 4.7% over the four-day winning streak that began with the Federal Reserve's policy statement last Wednesday, which quelled fears that the central bank might raise rates soon. Gold rose to a new record, oil futures snapped two days of losses and the dollar fell.
