@snehaverma,
The US markets kicked off the week with a bang, logging their best one-day rally since September, amid signs of progress to resolve the “fiscal cliff and following a pair of better-than-expected housing reports. The CBOE volatility index tumbled near 15, hitting a five-week low.
Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.65% or 207.65 points at 12795.96. Nasdaq Composite rose 2.21% or 62.94 points at 2916.07. Standard & Poor’s 500 added 1.99% or 27.01 points at 1386.89.

@snehaverma,
I just wonder how many sold their funds when the market hit new lows during the past week and a half? People use emotion, and sell when they should buy, and buy when they should sell. The principle of investing is buy low and sell high. It's a simple principle, but many can't handle the swings in the market.

When I anticipate market bears, I just try to make sure I have enough cash on hand to hold me over until the market recovers again.

@snehaverma,
Wall Street slipped on Monday, pulling back from last week’s gains, as retailers fell on concerns about heavy discounts at the start of the U.S. holiday shopping season and the overhang of the “fiscal cliff” kept investors wary of making big bets.

U.S. stocks climbed on Thursday, but shed some earlier gains, after John Boehner, the top Republican in Congress, poured cold water on hopes that lawmakers were getting closer to cutting a budget deal that would avert a possible recession next year.

The Dow Jones industrial average rose 36.71 points, or 0.28 percent, to 13,021.82 at the close. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index gained 6.02 points, or 0.43 percent, to 1,415.95. The Nasdaq Composite Index advanced 20.25 points, or 0.68 percent, to close at 3,012.03

@snehaverma,
Don't you get it yet? Boehner has no power, but he's acting like the arse that he is to make people believe he has power. Obama won! If the fiscal cliff takes effect, Bush tax cuts will expire, and everybody will pay higher taxes - including the top 2%. In addition to all that, defense budget will cut half million jobs. Those people are not going to be voting for republicans for many decades.

Boehner is working sweat for nothing; he's going to lose no matter what happens.

@snehaverma,
In the US markets, stocks finished in positive territory, with the Dow logging a five-day win streak, but off their session highs after senate majority leader Harry Reid threw cold water on the ongoing “fiscal cliff” negotiations saying that it will be hard to reach a budget deal by Christmas, adding that democrats aren’t going to make an offer on spending cuts for republican. The CBOE volatility index ended below 16.
Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.6% or 78.56 points at 13248.44. Nasdaq Composite gained 1.18% or 35.34 points at 3022.3. Standard & Poor’s 500 rose 0.65% or 9.29 points at 1427.84.

@snehaverma,
US stocks ended little changed on Wednesday, giving up most of the day’s gains after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke reiterated that monetary policy won’t be enough to offset damage from the “fiscal cliff.”
The Dow Jones industrial average unofficially ended down 2.99 points, or 0.02 percent, at 13,245.45. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index added just 0.64 of a point, or 0.05 percent, to finish unofficially at 1,428.48. But the Nasdaq Composite Index dipped 8.49 points, or 0.28 percent, to finish unofficially at 3,013.81.

@snehaverma,

@snehaverma,
Equity futures were slightly higher on Sunday night as talks continued in Washington over resolving the “fiscal cliff.” While the Senate will not vote Sunday night on any bill to avoid a series of $600 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts, as many had hoped, negotiations continued between lawmakers and the White House.
The Dow industrials and the S&P 500 each lost 1.9 percent last week, after stocks fell for five straight sessions, which marked the S&P 500′s longest losing streak in three months. Equities have largely performed well in the last two months despite constant chatter about the fiscal cliff, but the last few days shows a bit of increased worry.
