    The nation’s benchmark stock index closed at its highest level in nearly four years Friday, marking a milestone in the long, slow climb from recession that could help recalibrate a presidential campaign dominated by the economy.

    The S&P 500-stock index closed at 1,365.74, its highest level since June 2008, when the nation was on the brink of the financial collapse that triggered the most severe recession since the Great Depression. The Dow Jones industrial average also topped 13,000 early Friday before closing at 12,982.95. The Dow hasn’t closed above the psychologically signifcant 13,000 level since May 2008, and hit a low of 6,547 on March 9, 2009.

    It's obvious.

    Thanks, Glenn Beck.

    The markets seem to be in a Twilight zone - neither up nor down - probably soon to trend downward (Oil).

    ... they have proven recovery is possible if only temporary.

    Isn't it great that the market is so robust in spite of our sitting Idiot-In-Chief.
