 A daily volume chart of the S&P 500 from January 3rd, 1950 to February 19th, 2016

At time of this article dated March 28 '13, the S & P 500 index closed at 1,569.18 - a record closing high.

Presently the S & P 500 index is trading at 2093.94 or up 34.08% in just over 3 years. And that is excluding dividends. Not too shabby a rate of return in today's extremely low interest rate prices.

No it's not just the stock market that's resilient Look at the amazin' strength of the Yankee dolla! And the fed is about to finally begin raising interest rates which will only strengthen the US dollar even more. Truly amazin'

The Left doesn't even know how to spell the word "finances"

The USA stock market in spite of wars recessions depressions bankruptcies has an amazin' track record and so it should as most people's retirement investments are connected to it

Nothing amazing about it.  The debt chains and non-existant money supporting it were kept intact by Obama and other Western leaders by promising the (financial> <fininacial) markets tax payer subsidies into perpetuity.  It was perhaps the greatest act of theft in human (history> <theft) and arguably his single (most> <evil) act.  What's amazing is how little attention it's received on the left. 

Orange Crushed

Obviously a typo.  Do you not remember Obama forcing the American taxpayer to bail out the financial markets to the tune of seven hundred billion?  Then promising more?   I call it theft, being that the ones paying never gave their consent, and received no benefits from it.

Bah humbug. There is a sharp correction coming.

There are always corrections.
Nothing goes straight up forever although the S and P 500 Index gives it a good shot

And for all the folks that attack the stock market your pension plan, if you are fortunate enough to have one, is very dependent upon the stock market

NorthReport

Phenomenal!

The S & P 500 was within 1/2 a point of its alltime high yesterday.  Smile

The Left has cornered the market on the word "NO"
Thing is though voters want to support a political party that says "YES"
Too bad the left still doesn't get that

NorthReport

Brexit, Orlando, France, Trump, and the stock market with people's pension money is holding its own How could that possibly be?

We will see how the global deflation trade works out for items priced in US dollars.

Yes to what, our underwriting other peoples irresponsible inflationary activities?  How about this, stock markets that reward higher ewmployment and wages?  No?   CP and OAP are largely self supporting and so should most pension funds.  If not it's not my responsibility to bail them out.  

montrealer58 montrealer58's picture

The Brexit is NO to Europe, YES to Britain, and NO to the Cameron-Osborne government. So it is hard to say which YES and which NO the 'Left' want to vote for.

Regardless of whether the UK remains in the EC the fundamentals are there for a continuing strong world economy
Nothing goes straight up all the time but the S and P 500 has an amazing track record

NorthReport

The speculators will be making a fortune but the fundamentals for 99% of the the stocks has not changed. No one prepared investors for a Brexit, so of course markets are down today but they will eventually rebound. Laughing

I hope more and more people here keep saying the financial world is about to crash because each time they do the S & P 500 Index rises higher and higher which is good for pensions, etc.

My hunch is that London's reign as a financial centre will be taking a major hit over the next few years, there may even be a recession in the UK, and it would not surprise to see a run on sterling which may well be going on as I post this
