The Standard & Poor's 500 index set a record high of 1,569.19 at the close of Thursday's trading session, beating the closing high of 1,565.15 set Oct. 9, 2007. "The market has been trying and trying, and we finally crossed the line," said Quincy Krosby of Prudential Financial. "Having the Dow reaching new highs was good, but the S&P 500 is broader, it's bigger. ... It's an important message for investors."
