SPX News by Allie Longford on 11:47 November 10, 2016 EST

U.S. stocks rose on Thursday and the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting a record, as investors continued to digest Donald Trump's unexpected win in the presidential election.

Asian markets had also rebounded sharply ahead of the US session with The Nikkei 225 index closing a whooping 6.6% higher.

Major indexes gained but in afternoon trading they started to head lower and show signs of fatigue after the mind blowing round trip following the outcome of the US elections.
Meanwhile first-time jobless claims fell more than expected adding fuel to the stocks party.
