Will 2006 Registration Come to Fruition?

The stock market has taken off quite a bit in the last month or so with this so called “Trump Rally.” In fact, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has come very close to hitting the 20,000 mark for the first time ever. The DJIA is currently trading at 19,874, having hit an intraday high of 19,961 on December 14. Perhaps today will be the day it passes 20,000 or perhaps it will come back down and we will have to wait.

Interestingly, it looks like someone may have been hopeful about the Dow hitting 20,000 back in 2006. The domain name was registered by someone in January of 2006. At that time, it looks like the DJIA was trading somewhere around 11,000 depending on the day.

Of course, it is possible that it has some other meaning. The domain name currently resolves to a generic GoDaddy landing page. According to DomainTools, it looks like the .net, .org, .info, .us and perhaps other extensions are also registered. Those domain names are not registered to the same people.

When I did a Whois search for the  domain name, I saw that it is listed for sale on Sedo. If someone were to want to buy this domain name, it looks like it is for sale for $4,500, and the listing says it was listed in 2006:
