S&P500 hits first new intraday high since 2007

The US index, the S&P500, has beaten its old intraday record of 1576.09 set on 11 October 2007.

Whether QE is reported as tapering or otherwise, stocks appear to keep going up. It could be that the news in the FOMC minutes has been partially dismissed as the meeting took place before weak employment figures came out of the US.
