Dow Jones Industrial Average crossing 25,000 for first time

US stock markets opened at new highs on Thursday, with the blue chip Dow Jones Industrial Average crossing 25,000.

The gains extended an eye-popping run for Wall Street, which has surged over the last 12 months amid growth in the US and global economies.

On Thursday, markets got another boost after the ADP National Employment report estimated that employers added 250,000 jobs in December.

The US is due to release official job figures on Friday.

In early trade the Dow Jones increased 146 points or 0.59% to 25,070.86.
Thursday's trading puts the index on track for its fastest 1,000-point gain in history.

The Dow already climbed about 25% last year, adding nearly 5,000 points and crossing the 24,000-mark at the end of November.
