Further relaying confidence in the booming economy under President Donald J. Trump, CNBC reports that "stocks closed at record highs on Wednesday as investors bet on a potential rate cut from the Federal Reserve later this month after the release of weaker-than-expected economic data."

President Trump noted the success of the stock market's record-setting day on Twitter, saying, "We have the greatest economy anywhere in the world. We have the greatest military anywhere in the world. Not bad!" 

Here's how the markets played out on Wednesday:

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 179.32 points to end the day at 26,966, notching intraday and closing all-time highs. The Nasdaq Compositeadvanced 0.7% to 8,170.23.


The S&P 500 also rose 0.7% to 2,995.82 as the real estate and consumer sectors powered the broad index to record levels. Tech also boosted the index, rising 0.7% to a record high. The S&P 500 closed just 0.1% below 3,000.

CNBC reports that these numbers were due in small part to a "tweet from President Donald Trump calling for easier monetary policy added to expectations of easier Fed policy. Trump said the U.S. should “match” monetary policies from China and Europe, noting they are 'playing big currency manipulation game and pumping money into their system in order to compete with USA.'"
