Major averages rose substantially yesterday on higher volume with the NASDAQ Composite finally surpassing its old high set in March 2000. The Russell 2000 also hit all time-highs but has been doing so since January 2013. Both the S&P 500 and DJIA closed above their respective 50-day moving averages. The market seems resilient with respect to issues in Greece as well as having reacted bullishly to the Federal Reserve's announcement that rates would rise once it was clear the economy was turning a corner which, of course, remains to be seen despite a smattering of economically bullish reports.
