there isnt, hmmm!! Then why is it mentioned everytime the dow makes a new highs??? Many say that the oil and energy being down has been the catalyst for higher stock prices. Oil and energy prices being down is good for the consumer. The more consumers spend the better the economy does. The better the economy = higher corporate profits, higher corporate profits = higher stock prices. Consumer makes up 2/3 of the GDP. Without the consumer spending you could forget about DOW 12,000.... There is a correlation!!
