Dow hits record high

[Updated at 9:58 a.m. ET] Records are falling Tuesday for the Dow Jones industrial average.

The Dow hit a new record high within the first few minutes of trading Tuesday, gaining nearly 100 points, rising as high as 14,226.20. That topped both the Dow's intraday and closing records that were set in October 2007.
