Another day, another record. The Dow rallied 200 points on Thursday to close above 27,000 for the first time ever as Fed Chair Jerome Powell cemented his view that rates have room to go lower in the coming months. “We’re learning that interest rates – that the neutral interest rate – and the natural rate of unemployment is lower than we thought,” he said in the second day of semi-annual testimony on Capitol Hill. “So monetary policy hasn’t been as accommodative as we had thought.” Futures contracts tied to the DJIA are extending gains, up 89 points ahead of the open, while the S&P 500 and Nasdaq are ahead by 0.3%.
