Market Rally Continues -- Dow Flirts With 300
Wall Street seems to be humming "Happy Days Are Here Again."
A major rally across all of the boards has pushed stocks soaring throughout the day, as the $700 billion Wall Street bailout package becomes closer and closer to reality.
As of 1:45 p.m. today, the Dow was up nearly 300 points on the day, or nearly 2.7 percent. The Nasdaq was up 2.5 percent and the S&P 500 was up nearly 3 percent.
The market confidence has spilled over to the dollar, which also is inching back up.
Oil also is rallying, topping $107 per barrel.
