Dow Hits 13,000, a Mark Last Reached in 2008

The Dow Jones industrial average broke through 13,000 on Tuesday, attaining an intraday level not seen since before the financial crisis in 2008.
The index, which tracks the stocks of 30 large companies, had wavered in early trading. But at 11:24 Eastern time, on a day marked by news of an agreement in Europe over a bailout package for Greece, the index briefly pushed through to 13,000.64. Within minutes it fell back below the mark.
