Did you read the article? The stock market rise does not correlate to the employment rate or wages.

If buying up securities, printing more money, borrowing at $.76 to the Dollar and spending $3.5 Billion a day to keep this artificial economy afloat is your idea of success, we are in DEEP trouble. The stock market represents the 1% and its sychophants, investing/speculating as the rest of the country looks on in a combination of envy and horror. We are headed for a hard fall, as is the Dollar and our economy, belief in a leader had dire consequences before and ignorance of our finacial structure adds fuel to the fire that is near...we are feeling the heat already but people like you only bask in the warmth while they laud false achievements...reality is a hard teacher, especially if you are unprepared and ignorant of the facts.

Raise your hand if you are actually benefiting from this market. Average Joe investors were scared away from the stock market scam in 08. Now it is just Bernanke feeding hedge funds and banks. The poor people have to foot the bill by paying more for food/gas/utilities.

I love how some liberals attribute this to something other than the fact that the Fed is printing 85 billion per month and artificially holding interest rates at 0%.

The neocons were never worried about money when they were taking us to war and doing tax cuts last decade, their vice president even told us "deficits don't matter"

maybe.
Market hit bottom in 2009, loosing nearly 50% of value.
Similar to previous recessions, it made it's way back.
Granted, this was not a recession but much more severe, the run back up as taken longer then usual. as has the overall economy.

Of course, if we had done nothing and just sat back, then I could see how it would have been a whole lot worse.

Everybody's and armchair quarterback and THE most popular thing now is to sound smart and warn people how QE is going to destroy the economy.
Maybe..
or maybe the economy ($15 trillion), the stock market ($16 trillion), credit market ($31+ trillion) will not crash and fall apart when $85 billion a month buying by feds slows down even further or stops altogether.

I went to the pub last night and saw a fat chick dancing on a table.
I said, "Nice legs."
The girl giggled and said with a smile, "Do you really think so."
I said "Definitely! Most tables would have collapsed by now."

You can thank Ben Bernanke for this. The 85 billion they print every month has to go somewhere.

Along with SP soar so does our national debt and American's personal debt.
10:14 PM on 03/28/2013
It is soaring because tax attorneys in NYC have found more ways to move the profits of multinational corporations offshore and even create losses in the USA for their clients allowing them to get refunds from the USA allowing us to go into debt and more spending.

So Obama's going to pay for those or are the American taxpayers? You should find a different president to compare Obama too Bush was the worst in history.

There are more "takers" in RED states than anywhere else inthe nation. The Blue states are paying for the lies of the GOP who do not take care of their own unless they are wealthy. Same goes for education. The worst states are GOP controlled.

Thank you Ben "Helicopter" Bernanke for trying to take away the last 7% of valve the dollar has since the federal reserve(private bank) took control of our money in 1913.

Strong against other fiat money. You really dont know whats going on do you, I guess in your case ignorance is bliss. Explain to me why I cant buy the same house today for the same price they were forty years ago?

P.S. let go of the left-right paradigm, two sides of the same coin.

Bager? Are you referring to tea bag? What makes you you think I'm one of them? Is your mind so simple that you think if someone doesn't agree with you they must be a "bager"? Stronger against other fiat currency that are being pumped full of fresh money out of thin air like our federal reserve(private bank) is doing, is that what you mean?

You need to let go of the left-right paradigm, two sides of the same coin, then you may not sound so ignorant. Try doing some research on why the stock market is inflated, here is a hint QE4, once you educate yourself come back and talk to me.

Just love all the "conservatives" trying to spin this into bad news.
10:12 PM on 03/28/2013
This is good news. But there are two issues. Most of the wealth is concentrated in too few hands and the stock market is influenced by world events and our President and Congress can have an effect on that but in the end they are impotent these days. It is a global economy.

Now to be fair, when the same people you are talking about talk smack after it corrects, I will still be here saying the same thing. Presidential effect on the stock market is 1-2% at most.
