(Newser) – The Dow Jones Industrial Average crossed the 16,000 threshold this morning for the first time, with Boeing—bolstered by hefty 777X orders at the Dubai Airshow yesterday—acting as one of the day's biggest movers, reports the AP. The S&P 500, meanwhile, was trading above 1,800; that index is up 26% on the year.
