Dow Jones Today Moves to Lock In Gains as Nasdaq Hits Record High

Investors in the Dow Jones today are hoping to build on yesterday's 178 point gain after the NASDAQ closed at a new all-time high.

Much of Monday's market momentum was the result of a rally in tech stocks with Apple Inc. nearing $1 trillion in market capitalization.

Investors have largely shrugged off concerns about U.S. trade policy with its global trade partners and are instead focusing on last week's strong jobs report in order to drive returns.
