Dow surges 308 points on 'fiscal cliff' deal

By Andrew Tangel

January 2, 2013, 1:40 p.m.
NEW YORK -- Investors poured back into the stock market in the first trading day of 2013, in a rally seen as a sigh of relief that President Obama and Congress were able to avoid going over the "fiscal cliff."

The Dow Jones industrial average surged 308 points, or 2.4%, to 13,413. Wall Street followed surges in European and Asian equities markets after Washington's last-minute fiscal deal.

The broader Standard & Poor's 500 index rose 36 points, or 2.5%, to 1,462. It was the S&P's best first-trading-day jump since 2009, according to Howard Silverblatt, senior index analyst for S&P Dow Jones Indices.

The technology-heavy Nasdaq gained 93 points, or 3.1%, to 3,112.

Though Washington may have avoided a stalemate that many observers say would have led to a recession, political leaders put off decisions over broad spending cuts in military and social programs to reduce the country’s long-term deficit.

“They turned off the bomb,” said Sean Kelly, head of equity trading at Knight Capital Group. “There’s still danger in the whole thing, but as of right now, there’s no immediate danger.”

Given the uncertainty of an election year, the Dow has been on a steady decline since fall. Naturally it would jump after hearing the first decent news in months. Still have some work to do.

Yeah, Repubs certainly can't let this intolerable rise of the DOW under that Muslim/Marxist/Kenyan/Alien Obama go unaddressed -- queu in for yet another round of GOP fiscal hostage holding and brinksmanship when the Debt Ceiling rolls around again in a month or two, that should cure this intolerable economic rise under aforementioned Muslim/Marxist/Kenyan/Alien.

You're in denial. His remarks may not extend to everyone in the GOP or their fan-base, but it certainly reflects reality for some... dare I say many?

I would say any blanket statement can be made about anything than..It is ironic how one spews hatred about another groups hatred, it only makes that person look uneducated. Doesn't really strike a chord with anyone, people just wish that person would go away.

There is a difference between constantly exaggerating the truth while believing it and occasionally doing so as a means to emphasis an absurdity that is indeed true for some... dare I say many?

Don't be ignorant and generalize. You have many years on me. I would expect your wisdom to reflect that.
