The Dow Jones achieved its ninth successive record closing high, despite fresh fears of a sooner-than-expected rate rise from the Federal Reserve.

The S&P 500 and Nasdaq ended slightly lower, down 0.11% and 0.09% respectively.

"What makes me nervous is that it feels like the market is ignoring what could come on immigration, trade, healthcare - the negative implications that could come from a protectionist government."
