Kospi has crossed the 3,000 line for the first time ever.

After falling again, the closing price fell below 3,000, but 13 years after breaking through the 2,000 mark in 2007, the KOSPI 3,000 era began.

KOSPI opened at 2,993.34, up 2.77 points from yesterday (the 5th), and immediately increased its rise, breaking through the 3,000 line in the morning.

It fell again during the intraday and closed at 2,968.21, down 22.36 points from yesterday, but it set a record above the 3,000 mark for the first time ever.

It has been 13 years and 5 months since the first breakthrough of 2,000 on July 25, 2007.

The KOSPI, which fell to the 1,450 line due to the spread of Corona 19 in March last year, has continued to surge from the end of the year, opening the first 3,000 era in history.

Individual investors called Donghak ants played a big role in the KOSPI breakthrough.

Amid the low interest rate stance to respond to Corona 19, the liquidity released by the expansionary fiscal policy was driven to the stock market and continued a bullish market.

While major securities firms are raising the top of this year's KOSPI forecast to more than 3,000, there are concerns that too much money is being focused on the financial market amid sluggish real economy such as production, employment and consumption.

Finally, the heads of the economy warned.

Deputy Prime Minister Hong Nam-ki expressed concern over the real-financial gap, and said that increased liquidity should be cautious of the possibility that increased liquidity could lead to a shift in the asset market and a surge in debt.

Bank of Korea Governor Lee Ju-yeol also ordered a high level of caution, saying, "The high level of debt can greatly shake the market even in a small shock."
