Despite the 4th biggest bankruptcy in US history, and the largest industrial bankruptcy ever, markets are up strongly.
The Dow started 2009 at 8776.39. It is close to that level now, nearly erasing ALL of this year's losses for the first time this year.
The S&P 500, which started the year at 903.25, is well above that level (although it has been on the plus side previously this year).
