The S&P 500 is nearing a high, but is not quite there yet. On Monday morning the intraday price value of the S&P 500 crossed 1527 for the first time in over 7 years, according to officials at Standard & Poor's, the index' creator.
Yet this is not an all-time intraday high for the index, says Howard Silverblatt
, senior index analyst at Standard & Poor’s.
Silverblatt points out that the all-time intraday high
for the S&P 500 was set on March 24, 2000 when the index hit 1552.87 -- the same day it set the all-time closing high of 1527.46.
The S&P 500's peak for the morning was 1529.56, leaving it a little more than 23 points -- or 1.5 percent -- away from the all-time record.
