Market recap: Stocks recovered from a day of D.C. finger-pointing for not making substantive offers to solve the fiscal cliff, as the Dow closed above 13K for the first time in three weeks. Markets have remained remarkably calm despite daily media hype over the cliff, and some see good times ahead for stocks despite the details of any eventual deal. NYSE gainers led losers five to two.

    Markets were calm? They dropped like a bullet when Boehner spoke. But did you notice silver really did not budge? Just sayin...

    I think the public has realized the media over-exaggerates, best to become informed by reading than by watching news meant to capture your attention.

    There is no significance to this "manufactured" media event. Most retail investors now ignore these macro market metrics and focus on specific stocks. They know that in terms of purchasing power Dow 13K is a lot lower than it was a decade ago.
