    I read the title of your post and, for some reason, where your title says "gain," my brain kept reading "loss." Go figure.

    The NASDAQ has actually done pretty well the past several days, but as of the closing, the DOW was up 936.42 points.

    Keep in mind though, it was a banking holiday, so that may or may not have had something to do with it.

    Most analysts were expecting Monday's gains to be minimal compared to Tuesday's due to the holiday. So tomorrow could be interesting. I doubt that we'll see another 930 point gain, but I'll be watching.

    Same here, I've been so used to the loss threads and such that this is something really different.

    Apple Stock up 13.46 points too!

    It gives cushion for tomorrow when Steve doesn't wave his magic want just as the investors wanted.
