There was a political cartoon that showed a Wall Street Banker holding an infant while looking at a stock ticker. He exclaimed to the baby (words to the effect):
Son, in your day, you'll see the Dow break 2000!The Dow has been on a slow steady climb ever since. It has been hovering over 10,000 for quite a while now.
Which is why I for one think that the media attention to a few hundred points of correction over the last 10 days is over the top.
