Are you okay on the way home today (5th)?
There is a lot of snow outside right now.
We will connect the site in a moment to learn more about the weather news, and first, let's look at our stock market, which wrote a new history today.
The KOSPI crossed the 3,000 mark for the first time this morning at one time.
After breaking the 2,000 mark in 2007, it has reached the 3,000 high mark in 13 years.
At the end of today's market, it came back down to the 2,900 mark, but it is clear that a new era has opened in our stock market.
Today’s first news, first reporter Jeong Da-eun.
Yesterday, the Kospi, which stopped under 3,000 chins, rose steeply as soon as the market started and even broke through 3,000.
The Kospi, which fell to the 1400 line last year in the aftermath of Corona 19, has crossed the 3,000 line today.
It has been 13 years and 5 months since the first breakthrough of 2,000 in July 2007.
However, even though individuals bought more than 2 trillion won, institutions and foreigners poured out their sales, and it ended at 2,968.21, down 22.36 points.
The breakthrough of KOSPI 3,000 was led by individual investors called Donghak Ants.
Last year, the net purchase amount of individual investors in the securities market was 64 trillion won.
Amid the low interest rate to respond to Corona 19, the liquidity released by the expansionary fiscal policy was driven to the stock market, leading the bull market.

There are positive interpretations that the share of Korean assets, which was mainly real estate-oriented, will diversify into financial assets, and that it will be an opportunity to overcome the so-called Korea discount in the Korean stock market, but there are also voices of concern.

Nevertheless, the view prevails that the KOSPI 3,000 era based on the closing price will soon become a reality and will continue for a while.
