    Stocks going higher because bailouts are great.

    This whole idea of "investing" has become utter nonsense. It really has turned into a manic trader's market regardless of those denying it. Making money now, but if past experience is an indicator, I know how fast that money can vaporize once the frothy bailout sentiment turns into a rationalization that globally things are slowing down and getting worse.

     

    Well ... until that time, back to join the party making ill gotten gains while the rest of America and working stiffs drown in stagflation.

    You can only get so much mileage out of the "markets are higher on the news that Spain will...or Greece has declared..."

     

    I happen to know that this move up is in response to Bernanke agreeing to appear on The View.
