stock gains

the dow is back to 13,200, up from its sub-13,000 scare of two weeks ago.

and i wonder, can the entire market be manipulated by the federal reserve? is the current price bump the result of a politically motivated action, created by printing billions out of thin air that can only be a short lived increase?

like many americans i dont have time to become knowledable as i am at work most of the time and tired when not at work.
