WALL STREET RED HOT UNDER TRUMP: Wall Street will be closely watched Friday after the Dow and S&P 500 set new all-time highs Thursday ... Investors waved off the tit-for-tat exchange of newly imposed trade tariffs placed on U.S. and Chinese goods and focused on the latest, positive economic data. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 251.22 points, or 0.95 percent, to 26,656.98 -- marking the Dow's 100th record close since the election of President Trump and its first since January. The broader S&P 500 jumped 22.8 points to 2,930.75. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite gained 78.19 points to 8,028.23. Economic data released Thursday included a reading on weekly jobless claims. The number of Americans filing for first-time jobless claims fell to 201,000 in the prior week, well below the 210,000 estimate.
