S&P near record close.

 The S&P 500 could close at a record high today if negative pre-market sentiment turns positive, with the index having finished just two points shy of its peak yesterday. The Dow hit a fresh high as investors shrugged off eurozone concerns, and focused on what seemed to be decent U.S. house-price and manufacturing data. While the numbers were nuanced and consumer confidence plunged, the buy-the-dip mentality continued to prevail.
