Thank ye Mr. Bernanke

According to the NY Times front page story today, the announcement of the nomination of Ben Bernanke to succeed Alan Greenspan as Federal Reserve Chairman caused "a jump in prices on Wall Street."
I did indeed see a bump in my E*Trade accounts, which have been a bit sluggish recently. My net worth has actually slumped to around $240k again, just because of stock values slumping. But today's gains might put me near $241k again, for the moment, at least.
