    NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- U.S. stocks seesawed Wednesday amid a widely-anticipated Republican victory and the Federal Reserve's announcement of a second round of economy-boosting asset purchases, but managed to end the session with modest gains, pushing the Dow and Nasdaq to their highest levels in over two years.

    The Dow Jones industrial average (INDU) rose 27 points, or 0.2%, to finish at 11,215, the highest since September 2008. The tech-heavy Nasdaq (COMP) increased 7 points, or 0.2%, to close at 2,540, highest since June 2008.

    Wall Street loves to be propped up by the Fed.

    This action by the Fed could devalue the dollar by 20% over the next few years.

    News Headlines

    Bernanke needs to be fired. Hopefully with Republicans controlling the House Ron Paul will be able to get his audit the Fed bill up for a vote now.

    Why?

    It makes perfect sense. Bush, along with his other messes, handed the Obama administration a 0% interest rate.

    You realize how completely incredibly bad that is?

    Have a look..
