You borrowed against your house to go on vacation last year, guess you can't do that now. The stock market is up this year, maybe you can borrow against your retirement to go on vacation this year. What could go wrong with that plan? The gov't has lots of programs if you end up as one of the have nots. Besides you deserve that new tattoo, and that piercing in your face. Your entitled.

As stated many time's as the markets rises and things seem to be turning positive however slow, it is positive, the right will spin this to negative as they always do. Typical spewing.

The companies are recovering because they have cut to the bone, but the unemployment rate actually inched up again and is still above 8.3%. With recoveries like this, we never need another recession, and it is coming. Look at Europe, folks.

As I have learned, the stock market is for the stock market. It does not measure what is going on at the worker's level.

That's true, but it does reflect the recovery of the value of workers' 401k's. In late '08, when the market collapse hit, workers' retirement programs were devastated sending many people back to work when they thought they were about to retire.

Whenever you hear Republicans talking about privatizing Social Security, remember what they did after 2000 to allow the markets to create the conditions that resulted in the Bush crash of '08. They intend to run a Presidential campaign in 2012 pushing the same ideas. Also remember the impact on the markets' investment values after the attacks of 9/11. Do you really want your retirement money being subject to those kinds of fluctuations or do you want the assurance of the stability of a program that has stood the test of nearly 80 years of market shenanigans and fluctuations while never missing a payment to a retiree?

Well...So much for the republicant claim that it was Obama who's tanking the economy. Took 3 1/2 + looong years to clean up that mess W left. Eat ur heart out 'Cants

I love the way that Wall St. is demonized and then touted in the news in order to try and boost Obama's poll numbers. I can't wait to see what the market will do when he's out of office.

If the rebubs did win which is very unlikely unless the scotus gives the election to them again. they will drive the country back over the same cliff that bush did

Well if its anything like Bush,when Obama is out of office ,the stock market will crash or nearly crash.It is a myth that the republicans are good for the economy.They are just big spenders as demonstrated by huge tax cuts for the wealthy an unfunded trillion dollar wars like Iraq.

The Stock Market is NOT a indicator of the Economy and where it's going. Anyone in the business arena will tell you that. It has no effect on the Un-Employment, nor the National Debt, or what has been played down, Inflation, just look at your cost of food these days, paying a little more aren't we?

Inflation is figured the same way as it was before. Somethings up somethings down all added together to get a number. Nothing new.

Have you bought a carton or OJ lately, or other items. If your married ask your wife if she spending more on food.

The stock market is a future indicator. When GWB was spending money we didn't have, on wars we didn't belong in, the market went up predicting inflation. The recession put inflation on hold for a period of time, but the spector never left. Now that BHO has doubled down, and saddled an additional generation with high taxes and slow growth, the inflation risk has returned. What keeps up with inflation? Gold - too late for that rally. Commodities - anyone seen the price of gas? Well, you can always buy stocks - good companies can raise the price of their products to keep up with inflation. You and your family, not so much.

Agian, you and so many like you always go back to a past Adminatration, let's deal with this one and it's handling of the Economy. If you belive the Stock Market is an indicator of the future, your sadly mistaken. The market is at it's highest, but there is no change in the Un-Employment or the National Debt. If there is one blip in the Middle East or Europe, the Market will react, as it has always done!

Who has money for stocks? People w/o jobs,people w/o a home,people w/o cars,people w/o food,
people w/o anything. Job market as bad as it is.
Who can even save what they don't have?
Case of the have's and have not's or the Rich and Poor of America.
What does the stock markets do. Make people Greedy. America's middle name is:Greed in the stock market. Your either greedy or you won't make it.

Quit eating gov't cheese and get a job. Everyone with a job needs to save 10%, to invest for bad times. Instead gov't puts out a safety net and tells you don't worry about bad times, we got your back. All you have to do is vote for me and you can take that vacation or buy that house that you can't afford. This is not the haves and the have nots. This is the dependents that listened to the siren song of politicians (have nots), and those that choose self respect (haves).

Over nine tenths of entitlement benefit spending goes toward the elderly, disabled and working households. Save the far right talking points for when you call the Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity radio shows

Please 54% of Americans own stock directly be it through stocks they bought and hold or 401s. This does not count those who still have pensions which much is invested in stocks, nor does it count people who indirectly own stocks through their spouses and whose retirements are part of that picture. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/21/stock-market-us-real-estate-gallup_n_851786.html As our population ages and stocks are being cashed in for retirement many will be cashed in. As to YOUR other babble, cars selling pretty good, best year in GMs history, APPLE products selling well, movies doing fine, restaurants have increased sales. Things are not good for all certainly. But try and find a ticket for opening day at Yankee Stadium. This is not all 1% buying this stuff. They don't stand outside overnight for Apple products. This 'Hungry" movie took in how much the first two weeks?

Thank you President Obama for personally turning the market around to reach near record highs. You truly are the chosen one and we are all so blessed to have you leading this nation to new heights of wealth and prosperity. Thank you God for giving us Mr Obama. He is the best thing to happen to this country since slice bread.

THE STOCK MARKET IS NOTHING MORE THAN THE WORLDS LARGEST GAMBLING CASINO. IT IS NO LONGER WHAT IT WAS MENT TO BE, A PLACE WHERE YOU COULD BUY INTO A COMPANY HOPING IT WOULD GROW AND SHARE THE INCOME WITH YOU. IT HAS TURNED INTO BUY LOW SELL HIGH, MOST OF WHICH IS DONE BY GAMBLERS SITTING AT A COMPUTER, MAKING BUYS AND SELLING WITHIN SECONDS HOPING TO BEAT THE CROWD.

Market was at 7949 the day Obama took office its now at? YOU just made poor choices as to YOUR 401. This is not in defense of Obama either but just an easy starting point. If you are 65 born in 1947 and started work in 1965, my age, the Dow around 700. If you put money in every year YOU would be very well off today. That 1000 bucks from 1965 would be now worth 20,000 not counting dividends also to be invested and money invested every year after 1965. A diverse portfolio would make one a very rich man today.

Wait for the other foot to drop along with the market this is just another build up for another fall controlled by wall street
