Stock Report for 1/3/12

The stock market was open for the first day of the New Year and it turned out that the stock market for 2012 started off on the right foot. On 1/3/12 featured gains in the Dow Jones, NASDAQ, and S and P 500.

The Dow Jones advanced by about over +179.82, while the NASDAQ spiked up +43.57, while the S and P 500 gained by +19.49. As those who know the game well may know, one day's gain does rarely mean much of anything. A constant, steady growth would be the signs of a more healthy economic climate, but it is hoped that 2012 will be a good year.

Manufacturing in the United States continues to be a strong asset and has to do a lot for the stock gains on the January 3rd 2012 business day. Still an early beginning does make a promising start to this four day stock week. Gold also appears to be on the rise and those who invested in gold previously will find their gains to gain a lot of steam.

It is with great hope that 2012 will be a year where things finally get turned around a bit but only time will tell and there has been much false hope and false starts throughout the years ever since the worst of the economic crash in recent years.
