It's like the last five-and-a-half years never happened, if you can keep it.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average powered to an all-time high, riding a resilient 2013 advance and putting devastating declines of the financial crisis in the rear-view mirror….

The Dow rose 130 points, or 0.9%, to 14258 in midmorning trading, surpassing its earlier intraday high of 14198.10, set in October 2007. The benchmark has more than doubled from its March 2009 low of 6547.05 in the wake of the financial crisis. A close above 14164.53 would be its the highest finish ever.
