    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- U.S. stocks rose for a third straight day Friday, as investors shrugged off geopolitical concerns and focused on positive news out of the technology sector.

    The melt up should continue to at least 1550 for the S&P and 14.5 K on the Dow.

    now that's a relief out there!!! see, it's not gonna be like it'll be forever losing some pretty huge stocks everyday. We need to believe that us citizen people still got a lot of things to learn and to do to prevent things to coming to worst. Let us all play our role here and prevent the market from going down again. let us educate ourselves with tools and use it as our weapon to face each and changing charts each day.

    The run up in stock market probably has more to do with it being one of the few investments that's paying a decent return and less to do with the state of the economy.
