Stocks continued their climb today, with all three major indexes notching their sixth-straight win thanks to the latest retail sales data. Bond yields took a tumble as investors cheered next year's potential rate cuts, with the 10-year Treasury yield breaching 4% for the first time since August. The Dow once again closed at all-time highs for a fifth-straight triple-digit pop, while all three major indexes shrugged off brief midday pivots into negative territory.
