I always thought that was a catchy tune at the turn of the century. The Dow Jones has now settled above 10,000 here at the end of 2009. The market was cheered when it broke through this level March 19, 1999. Its funny how things never change. If you asked anyone including non stock traders what their reaction would be if the stock market sat just above 10,000 in 2007 it is very likely the responses would be lackluster at best. Fast forward to today and the stock market guru’s and the masses are cheering as the market has moved up over 70% in less than 9 months to close above 10,000. Sure things look much better than they did just one year ago, but with the market sitting in the same place it did 10 years ago we now know how the Japanese felt with their lost decade.
