The Dow Jones Industrial Average hit the psychologically significant threshold of 20,000 in intraday trade. The gains for the Dow on Wednesday came after Trump signed executive orders on Tuesday to move forward with the construction of controversial infrastructure projects.

The equity rally is supported by expectations that Trump will unleash a raft of pro-business policies, including tax cuts, a rollback of regulations and fiscal spending.

If the Dow does finish at 20,000 it would mark the second-fastest 1,000-point move in history (42 days), since the 59-session span between late March and early July 2007 .
