As the Dow Jones Industrial Average pushed above the 18,000 level on Tuesday for the first time since April, energy stocks led the way. A combination of U.S. dollar weakness, persistent strength in crude oil futures and the promise of a delayed interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve (thanks to Friday’s disappointing jobs report) have all played a role.
