NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The markets soared Wednesday as central banks moved to ease the liquidity crisis in Europe.
The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 490.05, or or 4.24%, to 12,045.68. The S&P 500 rose 51.77, or 4.33%, to 1245.96. The Nasdaq was up 104.83, or 4.17%, to 2620.34.
Mark Fisher said on CNBC's "Fast Money" TV show that the huge rally caught a lot of traders underinvested. He said today's action could lead to a pretty significant rally to the end of the year.
Dennis Gartman said it's pretty difficult to fight when all the central banks take concerted action, along with China's rate cut.Pete Najarian said that the rally slammed the VIX, which was down 9.27% for the day.
