Germany's DAX Hits Record 9000 Point High


It just keeps rising and now Germany's DAX has hit an all-time high. The index of 30 top companies briefly rose above the 9,000 level for the first time on Friday. Market watchers had been waiting for record level to be reached for the last couple of days. Even Friday's disappointing figure from the Ifo German business confidence survey wasn't enough to stop the DAX's progress, says trader Arthur Brunner.
