Seems like old times on Wall Street, almost.
The Dow Industrials average moved back above the ten-thousand level in early trading. If it closes above ten-thousand today, it will be the first time in 18 months.
The market's most closely-followed average would still be nearly 12 percent short of the all-time high seen in January 2000.
Investors are also focusing on today's Federal Reserve meeting in Washington. Analysts say the central bank will leave interest rates unchanged.
