The Dow is closing at a record, beating the previous high it set in October 2007, before the financial crisis and the Great Recession.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 126 points, or 1 percent, to 14,253 Tuesday, beating its previous record by 89 points.

The index is up nearly 9 percent this year, capping a remarkable comeback. The Dow has more than doubled since hitting a 12-year low in March 2009.
