The Market Reaches All-Time High

Not the Dow. Not the S&P 500. But the Wilshire 5000 Total Return Index (^DWCT).
This is the broadest measure of the stock market’s total retun. It includes several thousand stocks, and it’s adjusted for dividends.
On March 24, 2000, the index closed at 47.84098. Today, it closed at 47.86562.
For the record, the Dow closed at 11,718.45, which is just 4.53 points below its all-time high close from January 14, 2000. We did, however, peak into record territory during the day.
The S&P 500 closed at 1,339.15 which is 12.3% below its record close. Adjusting for dividends, it’s down about 2.5%.
