As from April 2013 my Journey in Investing is to create Retirement Income for Life till 85 years old in 2041 for two persons over market cycles of Bull and Bear.

Since 2017 after retiring from full-time job as employee; I am moving towards Investing Nirvana - Freehold Investment Income for Life investing strategy where 100% of investment income from portfolio investment is cashed out to support household expenses i.e. not a single cent of re-investing!

Currently; it about 54% to destination!

Dow, S&P 500 open third quarter with fresh records

NEW YORK: Wall Street stocks on Tuesday barrelled higher to new records, opening the third quarter with big gains following strong US auto sales and Chinese manufacturing data.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 129.47 points (0.77 per cent) to 16,956.07, while the S&P 500 shot up 13.09 (0.67 per cent) to 1,973.32. Both were record closing highs.

The tech-rich Nasdaq Composite Index bolted 50.47 (1.14 per cent) higher to 4,458.65.

Analysts said the market was spurred by data that showed Chinese manufacturing activity expanded in June at the fastest pace of the year and a surprisingly strong batch of US auto sales.
The auto industry sold 1.42 million vehicles in June in the US, well above the projection of 1.36 million.

"The market has some pent-up demand" after trading sideways for the last week or so, said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at Wunderlich Securities.

Other US economic data was mixed. The Institute for Supply Management's manufacturing purchasing managers index dipped 0.1 point to 55.3 in June, a disappointment next to a forecasted gain of 0.4 point, but well above the 50 reading that separates growth from contraction.

The Commerce Department reported US construction spending in May increased a less than expected 0.1 per cent.
