We were close in February. On February 12, 2020 the new all time high record 29,551.42 for Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) was set. Then the pandemic situation changed a lot. DJIA was not an exemption. It falls down, but it is not the end. The 30 000 level is still the ultimate challenge.
Edit: 30 000 was hit on 11/24/2020.
