For the first time since the 2008 financial crisis the Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the symbolic threshold of 12,000 points on Wednesday.

Bolstered by a strong performance from DuPont, Home Depot and Microsoft, the blue-chip index sailed briefly past 12,000 for the first time since June 2008, before the economic crisis bit.
