NEW YORK (Sputnik) – The S&P500 benchmark for quality US stocks hit all-time peaks on Thursday morning, joining the broad market indicator Dow Jones Industrial Average in the record-high territory as equity investors cheered the passing of President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.

The S&P500, which groups the top 500 US stocks, reached an unprecedented 3,921 points before consolidating to hover at around 3,955 by 11:36 a.m. (15:36 GMT), up 1.4 percent on the day.

The Dow hit record highs for a fourth day running, peaking at 32,653 before pulling back slightly to 32,634 and remaining up 1.0 percent on the day.

The technology-laden Nasdaq Composite index – which had tumbled on many days the past two weeks on concerns about overvaluation in stocks such as Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google – outperformed the S&P500 and Dow despite not hitting record highs. Nasdaq was up 2.5 percent at 13,392. It was only the second time in eight days that it had gained more than 2 percent.
