The three major indexes on Wall Street closed mixed on Thursday after the Republicans' much awaited tax reform bill failed to create enough buzz.
The Dow Jones increased 81 points to close at 23,516 points -- a new all-time highest level. Much of the gains in the Dow came from Apple and Microsoft, which saw their shares gain 0.7 percent and 1 percent, respectively.
The S&P 500 added 0.5 point to close flat at 2,579 points, and the Nasdaq was down 1.5 points to end the day at 6,714 points.
The tax reform bill did not offer anything beyond expectations, but it remains a question whether it can be passed by the Congress before the end of this year as President Donald Trump requested.
The bill aims to lower the corporate tax rate in the country to 20 percent, from the existing 35 percent.
It would also reduce the number of tax brackets from seven to three -- 12 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent. The plan would maintain a 39.6 percent bracket for the wealthiest taxpayers.
Markets and investors will closely watch the non-farm payrolls and unemployment rate for October that will be released on Friday.
