After Wednesday's Bell Market Commentary

Bank of America repaid the entire $45 billion it received from the government sparking hopes that the economy is on track to recover. As part of its ongoing efforts to stabilize the financial markets, the government announced it has extended its $700 billion bailout program until October 3, 2010. Investors have been cautious about rising government debt levels in Spain, Greece and other countries. The ICE Futures US dollar index, which tracks the dollar against other major currencies, fell 0.3 percent. Bonds fell, sending yields higher. Gold prices fell. Oil fell $1.95 to settle at $70.67 per barrel. The Dow rose 51.08, or 0.5 percent, to 10,337.05. The Nasdaq composite index rose 10.74, or 0.5 percent, to 2,183.73.
