Evidently today's rally has also been helped by the results of the election in India which saw the Congress party increase its hold on power, which is considered a favorable development for the Indian and world economies. Again, completely bogus reason for an advance in US stocks. Don't folks know that the Indians along with the Chinese are trying to ruin the US economy? This is truly a fool's rally. P.T. Barnum would love today's market – "a sucker is born every minute".
