CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP/AP) – U.S. stocks finished at record highs as the Dow Jones industrial average approached 17,000 points for the first time.

Despite the good news, Mark Teed with Raymond James Financial told 22News we’re overdue for a correction. He said, “It’s been almost five years since we’ve had a ten percent correction and it’s going to be violent, and people will get scared because it hasn’t happened in so long but it’s normal, expect it, from there we can go much higher after that.”
